Good day;
I recently read an article on your site Being black in Brazil vs being black in the USA – A Perspective by Italo Ramos. Wonderfully written. I will be back on your site to read more.

I found something on where a young, black man is trying to document his inculcation into American society from age 9-17. He begins with his first years an a Caribbean immigrant and all he saw and felt about whiteness, blackness and the realities of the American dream. Interesting stuff as well. If you have time, take a look.
