something i saw on FB the other day made me think. it was a rant about MLK day and president's day, the person wondered why we (in our county) have MLK day off but not president's day, and another person called her racist, and then it was just this long debate.
anyway, one of the people who commented said that she was going to apply the world 'black' when she spoke about black people in today's society, instead of African American, because the chances of them actually being from Africa are slim.
so i guess my question is, what exactly does being African American entail, to you? someone who was born in Africa, but lives in the US? someone who is first descendant American, with African blood? or someone who merely has black skin, but no African descendants, atleast for 4 or 5 generations?
