Thread: African-American

  1. #1

    Default African-American

    A dumb title given to black people in the U.S.A. If you think you are African American then you are wrong. You are black, if a Nigerian immigrant moved here then he would be African American. Why is it that black people are called African-Americans but white people are simply known as Americans?

    What do ya'll think?

    ^black.


    Nigerian immigrants are african american too, and white ppl are known as european american, and if we're all american we're known as american (black or white) so there isn't really and issue, its just european american is a term less commonly used cause they have no problem with the term white like blacks have with the term black

    but black americans are faggots dedicated to loosing. They get mad at the terms african american sometimes cause they'll swear on their mothers graves they dont originate from africa. they're frm tibet

    I think one could only speculate why we are called A.A.

    Who knows?

    I don't think blacks unanimously came up with this term. I think it was placed on us.

    By who?

    I don't know.

    the point was that he had no real ties to africa in the way some white people don't know what part of northern europe their ancestors come from. the only thing he recognized he had in common with actual africans from africa was skin color. his ancestors may have come from africa (unvoluntarily) but that's it..not even his grandma ever know them or when they came to the USA. he didn't understand why people considered him african american because no one from his immediate family is from there, they all grew up in chicago, he just preferred being classified as a black person

    he might not even be from africa. there are dark skinned people all around the globe.

    in south carolina there are alot of dark asian-indians that have been here as long as african slave descendants. the act look and talk like a southern black but they are not AA.

    sahu.

    Anyone who is a citizen of America is an American. What does race have to do with it? (idealistically) Except something to argue about?
