I think Black people should be called Black Americans. There are some people who are American, who can claim the title of African American, but they are actually from Africa.
I remember as a small child my mother worked at a county hospital and she came home one day and told us Negros no longer want to be called that. We should now say they are Black. Before the title Negros was appropriate Before that they were called Colored People, Before that they were called the N word. I have never used that word to refer to a black person, but I have sure heard a lot of black people us it..
If somebody called me "white" I would not be offended because I am secure with myself. Blacks do not like to be called "black" because they are very self conscious about being black.
That may be those who've heard it used disparagingly. I have no problem with it.
It IS ok to call African Americans black, just like one calls Caucasians white. I guess if someone's overly sensitive about that, best not to make reference to colour at all.
haha i don't have a problem being called black. Doesn't bother at all
ps not me in my profile pic lol
When I fill out a form that asks me for my race I write in "Human"
honestly dude, im mixed, native american, black, white, and latino....sooooo i dont give a @#$@#$ hahaha! but seriously, if anyone is honest and secure with themself then its not an issue, because it's the truth.
I'm black and have no problem with people addressing me as a black girl. I'm not ashamed of it. It's when you throw the 'n' word at me. Then I get upset and offensive! Good question though
wtf you can call african americans black people I do it all the time and honestly I can't stand racial sensitivity or when anyone throws out the race card as a defense
you don't have to be insensitive to peoples races people just need to realize every stereotype pertaining to their respective race doesn't have to define them as an Individual. we as humans need to stop using race as a barrier, we all sh!t, we all bleed, and we all die simply as that
I am not American but Black no problem with that. Where have you heard this? There is even a song, Young Gifted and Black !!!
did you mean to put NOT ok in one of them?
