From my understanding, to disidentify with something means to not identify with something, or to separate yourself from a group or identity. Although I was born in America, I come from a Caribbean background. When I was a teenager there was a time when i disidentified with American culture and only wanted to deal with my Caribbean roots. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I just wanted to be more connected to my family’s heritage. Since then I’ve learned to combine both cultures into who I am.
