I'm so tired of being politically correct can't we just stop all the nonsense? I'm white your black. I'm not a European American any more than You are African American. Were you born there? I thought not, so that makes you a Black American does it not. I'm a white American. So what? And please don't try playing the race thing it just won't work.

  • If you really feel this way and think you are right, why hide behind anonymity?

  • I love this kind of nonsense. You're white. I'm black. I'm glad you made it through Elem. School. You sure did figure that one out on your own.

    WRONG! My oldest daughter was born in Japan but I wouldn't let her be half japanese for anything. They tried to rape my friends, push my husband over a cliff, and tried to burn our apartment down. My daughter is American not Japanese.

  • If I may play devil's advocate for a moment-

    It's possible that the reason for this is because Europeans for the most part came here voluntarily whereas Africans were forced to come here in slave ships and were stripped of their heritage. By calling themselves African American they are trying to reconnect with their roots. That is just a guess and I could be way off base.
