    Never used any of those, see I'm a mick, I live across the street from a wop, who is married to a polock, At least that's what my sheep-shagger buddy tells me.




    In reality, none of us use hyphenated labels so this fails on all levels.

    Re: Are African-Americans a mongrel people?

    Which reminds me...

    Isn't one of the reason we're told those slurs aren't as bad is because they're not as common, haven't been used reuglarly in so long, and generally are less prevelant then the N-word.?

    Is that not the same thing in regards to "Irish-Americans" or "Italian-Americans", as they're not nearly as common, haven't been regularly used in a long time as a daily designation, and are generally less prevelant then African-American.

    I'd say the only thing that is as commonly used recently is "mexican-American" and that's only since the immigration stuff really upticked.

    Actually, I would say the immigrants tend to call themselves by their nation of origin without the hyphenated addition of "American" to their description. Their children are the only people who have a legitimate reason to add the hyphen to the description because the children of immigrants are usually bi-cultural. They will have the American cultural influences AND the cultural influences of their parents. The influence from their family-of-origin should not be discounted.

    These children will be equally able to blend into either culture, but they will also be removed from each by some degree. This is one of the major reasons why children of immigrants, regardless of the nation of origin, tend to befriend each other at higher rates than they befriend children of non-immigrants. There is also a high tendency to marry other children of immigrants or actual immigrants (first-born children of immigrants have a higher tendency to marry immigrants than their siblings).

    Also, many of them will have dual-citizenship, making the hyphenated term correct on a very technical level as well.

    For their kids, however, the hyphenated term becomes insignificant and it doesn't apply, especially after they become "mogrelized", like my own children will be.

    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.
    I observed, some time ago, that The Obama is a true 1st-generation African American.

    As such, He is distinctly seperate from self-styled African Americans in that His acsnestors were not held by White Americans as slaves, and therefore has no legitimate claim to share in their plight.

    I like to follow along with name of the pre-eminent organization that claims to represent them and refer to them as 'colored'.

    ... cant say colored....

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.

    Why?

    Re: Are African-Americans a mongrel people?

    I say "people of color" sometimes (or "women of color", or "children of color", or whatever).
    I like the sound of it; it's inclusive. Some of the smartest black people I know say it.
    Nobody's ever told me it's hurtful or unacceptable.
    If it becomes unacceptable in the future, I'm sure someone will let me know.
