    Doesn't really matter, whatever descriptors necessary to describe someone, should be acceptable - within reason.

    As in: "That scrawny n*****". Scrawny is fine, but not the other.

    Too much racism involved in the other word.

    That is... if they are now Americans.
    If they are just visiting... they are African... or South African if they prefer.

    That gets me thinking... what do you call a guy from The Congo?

    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.

    It gets really confusing when you start having to deal with the South American Americans.

    Technically he would still be black or african american (or whatever terminology you wish to use). My point is that no descriptor is ever going to totally work and its silly to try to find one that fits all cases. The important thing is that people are people.

    ahem.. I believe the proper form in which to address said man would be simply to reverse the word order, thereby making a distinction for skin color while keeping the nationally-hyphenated PC form intact and without actually having to refer to color (so tacky, don't you know). The are American-Africans.

    Unless you came from Africa in your lifetime and now live in America, most "African-Americans" don't have a damned clue what being "African" is.

    The term itself brings an image of someone who has more loyalty to the first hyphenated portion of their "politically correct" name than being American.
    I wonder if you make such a period laden fuss about Irish-American, Italian Americans, Polish-Americans, Scottish Americans etc. Seriously, why not just come out of the closet already Caine? We all know.

    Actually, I do.

    The only people who should keep their Hyphenated bull**** are first generation immigrants. Their children on the other hand who are raised in America, like American children, going to American schools, with American cultural influences and upbringing are, plainly put... AMERICAN.

    Everyone whines about everyone being the same, yet continuing to cram these ethnical differences down our throats is only going to contribute to treating each other differently based upon ones own self-identified "ethnic tag".

    Im an American. Nothing more.

    BTW: Thanks for trolling and attempting to bait me once again.

    Are you suggesting however that Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, Polish-Americans, etc are used nearly as much in every day life, in entertainment, and in the media as the term "African-American"?

    If not, is it not reasonable to generally speak more about something that is normal and wide spread than something that is relatively unusual or not common.

    Seriously, the only time I hear "Irish-Americans" routinely is occasional stories during St. Patty's Day.

    Not to mention this thread is specifically about one of those groups listed above. Is it unreasonable to suggest people would actually discuss those people that are actually the TOPIC of this thread?
