I've been told by Blacks that Political Correctness when is comes to them is an annoyance. There isn't a single term which is truly accepted by the whole African-American community.

African-American is offensive because they aren't African.
Black is offensive because you are referring to them by skin color.
Negro is offensive because of it's use over time.

Truthfully, does it really matter? I'm technically Latino. Word Motherfuckers. Word.

Boohoo black is offensive. Black and white make the most sense to me, it's a pretty definitive descriptor.

Hey, I agree with you! But we're both CLEARLY racists.

Oh true. I forgot about that. You're supposed to be bitching that you're more marginalized than blacks are, right?

I had a friend last year who I used to fight with. I said that since we now have a black president, I am clearly more of a minority then he is. I also said some of the best racist shit in my life... It was funny as hell. He almost killed me a few times...

Clearly.

I do find it funny, though, that I have to call them asians instead of yellow, because that is somehow racist.

I guess you can use evil, but I think it's funny because people in the conquest for being 'politically correct' are actually wrong in syntax most of the time. Example (relevant to this thread/discussion): African-american. Not all black people are African-american, and not all African-americans are black. Black people historically can come from any number of places, South America, the Carribeans, even parts of Europe. That's why I said it's funny, but I think calling it 'evil' is taking it a step too far :P

Once you realize how race is a social construct you also realize how humorous this entire discussion is.

Yeah, it's stupid that census ask social construct information. They should ask people about their genome. Hey, please list out your genes so we know who and what you are.

What are you talking about?

Are you saying that Asians aren't really better at math than everyone else and that white men can actually jump?

I've heard people bitch about race not being real. It may not be important, but it does exist in some sence, even if it's a social construct. It's like religon, it helps define you as a person.

But then again I've meet White kids who acted more "black" then most Blacks do... Does that make them Black? Word motherfuck, work.

No, because the concept of what 'black' means is up to you.

Besides, we are all African anyway.
