Maybe we are DISTANT relatives, LOL. My Mom is part Carib too. She's Black, from St. Kitts (Caribbean) and there's also some portuguese in there. My father is African American. He's says we have a tad bit of Cherokee in us (which is believable because of his features) but I refuse to tell people that, LOL. Every Black person in America claims to have Cherokee in their blood. I'm perfectly happy saying he's/we're all Black.
