In the Caribbean many of us on a physical level draw from different racial origins due to legacy of enslavement and colonialism. Likewise culture, religion, language etc flow from the African and European and other ancestry. Many institutions and values are based on European values and institutions during and since enslavement and colonialism.
Especially when issues of addressing racial injustice and inequality arises persons talk about embracing all aspects of their ancestry. What do persons mean by that? What does this mean in terms of how we operate in the world and deal with issues of fairness, justice, morality etc? What does it mean for how we relate our Selves?
