    Hip hop music has been getting waxed since at least the 70s, this is like the 5th decade where you can go purchase hip hop music at a store, its not just some new fad. Of course it will still be relevant.

    and "african american" is a white political term.
    black is what people in the real world use. lol
    to be honest i don't like the term african american either. black is the regular term. but june is trying to claim black is more accurate linguistically or logically and thats false.

    i have never met a black person. i know some brown people though. african american for black americans is actually more accurate since they have (mostly) african heritage and live in america.

    If the movie Malcolm X is how Spike Lee "sees" Malcolm's life, then we can't put much stock in how Spike Lee "sees" anything.
    Real quick, another MAJOR historical inaccuracy: Louis Farrakhan was Malcolm's under-study and close friend, zero mention of him in the film. I implore you to read between the lines here.

    No, Black is more accurate scientifically. There is no brown person without 1st having a Black person. When 2 Black people mate, there is a 1 in four chance that the offspring comes out brown. Over time and through the countless instances of mating, different skin colors come about. (not to go into this too much)

    I don't know what part of the world you are from or are in, but over here in the greater metropolitan area of New York City, every kind of human being is represented. It's nothing to see a jet Black person; literally Black as the Blackest part of this message board. To confine the Blackman's origins to a land mass labeled "Africa" only a few hundred years ago is historically and scientifically inaccurate. We were Black from the very beginning

    P.S. My apologies for this thread taking a turn in this direction

    not your fault that i felt like arguing.

    spike lee is a filmmaker not a documentarian, if he changed a few details it wasn't because he secretly hates black people.
