To be black

I want to put a question out to people. What does it mean to be black? and does it mean to except your African (speaking to the diaspora) and does excepting your African does it now mean you are a king or a queen..

Why are you a king or a queen? I hear a lot of people using this term in references to themselves or greeting a fellow brother or sister, admittedly I have used the words before but I am starting to question, what does it truly mean.

I am sure a lot of people would disagree the need to question this terminology, but I feel it necessary to get a better understand. So this is an open question hopefully I will get feedback and later I will give my furthered opinion.

What's going on?

D'Angelo R&Busted for soliciting cop

He may have fallen on hard times, but this is ridiculous!

Grammy Award-winning R&B singer D'Angelo was arrested early yesterday after allegedly offering an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex while cruising alone through the West Village -- with $12,000 stashed in his SUV.

D'Angelo, 36, whose real name is Michael Archer, was in his top-of-the-line Range Rover at Greenwich and Horatio streets at about 2:30 a.m. when he spotted a woman he took to be a prostitute, sources said.

He was arrested and charged with solicitation after asking the woman for sex, the sources said. His manager declined to comment.
