    Question being dat is february...

    an we supposed tuh be celebratin black history month...
    why black people always referin tuh dem selves as "african-americans"...
    ah mean, not every black person in from africa...
    an it have white people in africa too...
    so what white africans livin in de states call demselves???
    if ah remember correctly...
    blacks were called ########################s first...
    den coloreds...
    den blacks...
    an now de "politcally correct" term is "african americans"...
    it occured tuh me dis mornin...
    cuz on de radio dey was talkin bout how "african-american" women more likely tuh have heart disease...
    ah kno dey mean black women...
    so in usin de term "african-american women"...
    ent deh sayin white women from africa susceptible too???
    instead of educatin demselves an correctin de american public...
    dey always lookin tuh complain bout everyting...
    (at least de majority)...
    even colin powell (no offense tuh those who support him) vexes me...
    yes, he's an american (like me)...
    buh he has jamaican parents...
    yet he always callin himself an african american...
    is about 400 years since africans been brought tuh de states...
    so yuh not african- yuh american, a black american...
    yuh doh hear white people callin demselves "english-americans"...
    or "irish-americans"...
    dey simply call demselves white, a color...
    (although, dey really peach not white- fuh de most part)...
    we not african-americans...
    we black, a color...
    (although, we really brown not black- again fuh de most part)...
    so my point...
    when will black people represent themselves correctly in dis country???
    befuh dey go lookin fuh reparations...
    dey need tuh represent demselves correctly...
    an de youth need tuh stop referin tuh each other as "####################s"...
    an also tuh stop lettin whites an hispanics call dem dey "####################s" as well...
    is not a cool slang term...
    is a demeanin word tuh all de black people who strived tuh create better life fuh blacks in de states...
    when it comes tuh representation of de black race...
    we cyah let history repeat itself...

    Angry Now for a dose of reality



    an we supposed tuh be celebratin black history month...
    why black people always referin tuh dem selves as "african-americans"...


    Every so-called Black person in the world thru their lineage is from Africa. Unless you are ready to change your title and handle to remove all references to Trinidad, you are contradicting yourself.


    an it have white people in africa too...
    so what white africans livin in de states call demselves???


    So-called white-Africans refer to themselves by the countries from which they hail, e.g. South African, Moroccan.


    if ah remember correctly...
    blacks were called ########################s first...


    Blacks were first called Kings and Queens.


    an now de "politcally correct" term is "african americans"...

    Africa refers to the origin of the dominant characteristics of said person. This is very real; to deny this would be like denying the color of the sky. Instead of worrying about the sad reality of heart disease you are worrying about what we call people.


    even colin powell (no offense tuh those who support him) he has jamaican parents...yet he always callin himself an african american...

    Powell is akin to a house-slave as Belafonte so eloquently addressed.


    is about 400 years since africans been brought tuh de states...

    Time changes nothing about your ancestry.


    yuh doh hear white people callin demselves "english-americans"...or "irish-americans"...

    Caucasians refer to themselves as Italian-American, Isish-American, German-American, all the damn time. As well, people refer to themselves as Asian or Asian-American, Indian, etc.


    we not african-americans...
    we black, a color...
    (although, we really brown not black- again fuh de most part)...


    Black is a color. White is a color. Yellow is too. As you stated, no one truly resembles any of the above.


    when will black people represent themselves correctly in dis country???
    befuh dey go lookin fuh reparations...
    dey need tuh represent demselves correctly...


    Black people don't respect themselves and refer to themselves in the proper light BECAUSE they refused to take pride in their glorious past. It is WELL DOCUMENTED -- if you like I can show you an extensive case study -- that African-American children do BETTER in school and have MORE respect for themselves when they have been properly educated about their ancestry. To rob them of that would be to contradict the very thing you are fighting for, for them to respect themselves enuff to not be "####################s".


    when it comes tuh representation of de black race...
    we cyah let history repeat itself...


    When it comes to the representation of the African, proper knowledge and respect of history alone will be our guide.
