Extract « Having spent a significant amount of time in the United States, is there a difference between blackness in Paris and blackness in, say, Brooklyn?
Blackness in Paris is definitely more African or Caribbean as a result of the direct proximity to the Continent and the Caribbean. At the same time, blackness in Brooklyn is more political, self-aware and organized. Also, I am haitian so Brooklyn is kind of a freeing place for Haitians. In Paris, I don’t have a lot of Haitians. »
