African-Americans is just a code-word for being black, even if your ancestors never came from Africa, but if you're a white guy that grew up in South Africa, you can't be an African-American because you're white, even though you have even more claim to the word than some black guy whose family has been in Detroit for generations. To be honest, I'm surprised it hasn't gone farther than it has. Why not gay-Americans and female-Americans? I'm sure that's coming soon.
    In the past in the USA people were taught to be ashamed or afraid to acknowledge their background if it wasn't Anglo-Saxon. Now we can all appreciate and enjoy our heritage and diversity. I don't see the problem. I suspect its just the same old rigid minded European American guys pissing and moaning because being a white man no longer gives them instant privileges.

    African American is a better term in my opinion since "blacks" can be a wide variety of colors, with some being lighter skinned than some "whites." The terms black and white imply a significant difference like night and day, while terms like Asian American etc. only implies a tie with a continent. I have no problem with "whites' who grew up in Africa describing themselves as African Americans, but it is less confusing if they just say "I was raised in Kenya." Same with "blacks' who grew up in Africa.

    The eu was officially formed in 1993, the relevant treaties were signed starting in 1957.

    The SPP, while in the article is claimed to NOT be a treaty, it actually IS a treaty in the same vein that the treaty of Rome became the blueprint for integration of Europe into the EU.

    The ACD (asian cooperation dialogue), is the group that is working in bringing in Asian nations (and Russia) to a place where the equivalent treaties might be signed.

    Treaties and international agreements are not "conspiracies", they really do occur in the real world.

    Oceania, Eastasia, and Eurasia, just like 1984.

    Nobody should have any special privileges based on their skin color or background at all. Ever. It never should have happened in the past either. You don't solve inequalities by perpetuating them on the other side of the fence.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The part where you say countries who don't agree will be taken by force. You have no evidence of that.

    Haha, ok let's have a simple and brief example that you've seen in your lifetime (to some extent). Saddam Hussein had pushed himself to a certain point and the CIA helped him the rest of the way to becoming the leader of Iraq. So long as he played ball with their interests the world looked aside as he committed atrocities... Then, to maintain control over him once he became a zealous leader there was an oil embargo that then created an "oil for food" program with the aims of helping to offset the problems created by the embargo. This is when saddam Hussein, the evil bastard that he was, decided he could build up Iraq with the oil for food program and so he boosted production.

    This surge in his production caused oil prices to drop, within 2 years he was killed. He withdrew his consent and so he was conquered...

    Re: globalization

    Globalization, the binding of the world together and the steady breakdown of control over people, capital, and information is not something you can 'believe' or 'disbelieve' in. It is the cumulative result of technological progress. Greater portability and ease of movement will increase as time goes on, it is inevitable and quite frankly extremely positive.

    Tons of groups from feminists (and men's rights advocates) to the NAACP. Anyone who focuses solely on one side is part of the problem.

    Good example, but still just a theory on your part. I just don't think it would be so simple to accomplish and might be more trouble than it's worth to everybody.

    Re: globalization

    Globalization in the form of trade liberalization has been wonderfully beneficial to the world at large. Certain regions could also stand to benefit from a good deal of cultural, shall we say, "enlightenment."
