It is just programmed politically correct insanity. The correct scientific name you are looking for is Negro. Somewhere along the way some idiot thought that had a negative connotation and wanted to sound more sensitive and started calling people colored. Then “colored” people decided that was negative too and they wanted to be called “black”. Then “black” people decided that too sounded negative and demanded to be called “African” even though Africa is a continent with many races and the overwhelming majority of people in America are born here not in Africa.

How about this? How about we call each other by name identify our origins by local birth and stop worrying about race? So, I’m Resister from Tennessee and you are CigarTigher from the internet. Deal?

The evil genious scientist black man of African color Doctor Yakub made Caulkasians from caulk, pink pigs and thin lipped rhesus monkeys. His experimints happened in the Caulkasian Mountains. These slaves were supposed to do our labor while we pursued greater goals. Yakub didnt realize that his invention would also have the tricknologys and that's why the Earth is Hell today!

you are completely right.

The place where you are born determines you race and nationality. I laugh at all the racist that always want to put labels on every other NON white.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27703973


The place where you're born often determines nationality.

But it doesn't determine your race.

Cathy Freeman and Paul Hogan are both Australians by nationality, but you're telling me they're both the same race for having been born in Australia?

I am not a specialist in this term, but I once did read
about mexican history, where they first called them selves
Americans (Americanos).

That is correct, since the term was used to identified
the spaniards suns borned in the new lands the new world.

In fact, the declaration of independence from the new
spaniard (borned in Mexico), refers like this:
AMERICANOS............... etc. etc.

So the term Americans was named first from and for
the Mexican population; at first Mexico, was called from
the new americans (new spaniards) ¨The New Spain¨.
Then after in 1810 it was called ¨Mexico¨.

Conclouding, now all those that were borned in the Am-
erican Continent, are Americans acording to them selves.
But if there are native, indians or natural that call
the Continent in other names, that goes for them.

I thought it was "people of color" now? I call them black. If they don't like that then I'll change it to asshole. When I was a boy they were called negroes and that's how they wanted to be known. Then they wanted to be called black,then African American,then black again and now people of color. Fuck that shit. I don't have time to worry about the politically correct term of the day. They are black and that's it.

Not just caulk, pink pigs and rhesus monkeys but the crakka got his fur when Doctor Yakub blended that creature with the collie dog and then added melanin block to make the cave ape all albinos, if you will. I even think that the evil genious Yukub used geese to give them the honk honky voice, so to speak.

Re: Why do they call black people black or African American ?
They are called Black because of the black pigment " melanin" in the skin. Black folks have higher concentrations than white folks. But yes, the "white" folks ( Caucasian ) have melanin in smaller quantities. That is the stuff that allows them to tan.

Negroes are also black with the highest amounts of melanin.. ( same root word for melanoma). But Negroid is a race.

All negroes are black. But. Not all black people are negroid.

People with black skin like jews , arabs,, Indians, Native Americans,Eskimo,European dark skinned people are Caucasian.

Is this what is confusing you Bunkie?

Black is NOT a race.

There are 3 races. Mongoloid, Negroid, Caucasoid.

Re: Why do they call black people black or African American ?
actually black is not a color its a shade so is white and gray. As far as I know the technical term for black people is Negro. Its an old term and no one with imagination has made a better technical name for the race and instead give us these lazy terms like African American.
