. Your Absolutely Right! It's a bulls**t situation.
I'm White. If anybody wants to call me 'Whitie', that's kind of funny, but ok.
My great x2 grand-parents were born in Denmark, but I'm sure as heII not a Danish-American. And I've NEVER met an 'african-american who was born in Africa!
I ALWAYS say 'Black', like in ,"That Black chick is Hot!", kind of thing. I sure don't know if SHE was born in Africa!
Same as I don't say "Mexican-American" about anybody. I do NOT know where they were born! If they look Hispanice, that's how I might refer to them. Use the obvious.
Heck, I've heard a few old Black guys say they have nothing against 'Neg.ro".
Next time some p.c. nut-job critizes you, just say YOU got no idea of a person's Heritage! Maybe this Black person was born in Jamaica, or the Carribean, or goddann New York!
AND there is a BlackLand, Egypt, and a Black Sea and certainly a Black Culture. i like black berries.
