I have a question, based mostly out of curiosity. I am a VERY open minded white person (and damn proud of it!!) and even I feel that the term "African American" is stupid. I mean what would you call someone with dark skin who lives in England? I personally have no problems being called white - especially during the winter when I practically glow in the dark. Caucasian doesn't bother me much either. My question is more like a survey to the black women on here. What do YOU prefer to call your race?Answer Question

It's just American Political Correctness gone awry...we're at the point where people are "afraid" to describe a black person as "black." Its as if it has become a derogatory word.
