Hey, could you explain the name of your blog please? :)
Well, I was born in South Africa, and due to Apartheid people were divided into various racial groups, the main ones being, black, white, and then coloured. I don’t know if you know anything about the South African coloured identity, but essentially Coloured people have become a race of their own, being so mixed that some of the ancestry is untraceable, and their sense of identity to their black and white ancestors have been lost generations ago.
I moved to Australia 6 years ago, and people used to call me black - which I HATED as BLACK is not something I’ve identified myself with at any stage in my life. So saying “I’m not black, I’m coloured” became something I said so much that eventually I started my Tumblr and Instagram and named them ‘notblackbutcoloured’.
Some ignorant people still insist on calling me black, even after I explain to them, but the majority of people respect it now.
