There is an African American mommies section on Cafemom.  Okay fine and dandy.  My only problem is that if there was a Caucasian mommies section, everyone would freak out and cry racism.  Or a Hispanic mommies section.  Or Native American mommies.  Why is it okay to have an african american section?  Oh and just because you're black doesn't make you African American.  There are plenty of black people native to Ireland.  They don't run around calling themselves African Irishmen.  

Let me just make it clear that I am not racist in any way and I find racism to be close minded and pointless.   What I don't understand though is that in general (certainly not all), these minority races (Black, hispanic, native american) tend to isolate themselves and act like everyone hates them.  They are allowed to walk around wearing shit that says native pride or proud to be black but if a white person were to do it, we're fucking racist?!  I don't understand!!

I just don't get it.  People say they don't want people to be racist against them but they are racist with themselves.  Don't act like you're different from other people based on your skin color and heritage if you don't want to be treated differently!
