    IMO, the only person that should be considered an African-American is someone that is born in Africa and became an American citizen. Even then I think they should be considered just American.

    Why should a person not born of Africa, be considered an African American?

    Apparently not.

    Apparently giving preferencial treatment to minorities under the law is the solution somehow.

    You know, to pay back for past injustices, while at the same time creating new ones, against whites. But who cares about those pale ghosts anyways.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    This is what Ive been saying for years.

    African-American has undertones to it that means that they aren't completely American, and that being African comes before being an American.

    Very good question, if you try to ask this question you are labeled a racist.

    to some yes, but a friend of mine actually gets pissed when someone labels him an African American. He says ' I am an American".

    The funny thing for the past 3 generations his family was from England hehe.

    because it makes a distinction between the races. Skin color is everything to the Civil Rights industry. If that ever goes away, there could be a chance that white politicos could be elected in majority minority districts. Can't have that.

    If that were the case, you could have black-American, African American, English-American, etc.

    Although like most I've been puzzled by African American. Africa isn't a country.

    He would want to kick your ass over that one hehe.

    He was "American". If you called him other than that, he was offended and would let you you know it lol.
