If I have to call black people African Americans than you can call me European- American or Caucasian. emotion_facepalm
Why do some people get offended when I say black.

It's just more politically correct, because some people who look black, aren't really black. People need to stop being so worried about offending each other.

We are called African American because we are not native to America such as Chinese American or Irish Armerican we came from somewhere else it doesn't bother me one way or another but for some it can be touchy

If you called me a c***k instead of Asian-American, I'd be forced to drop-kick you.
Did someone personally tell you "Please do not call me black" ?

If so, then just don't call that person black. That doesn't mean every single black person feels the same way. Black people aren't hivemind.

I've never been offended to be called black and prefer it. My whole family calls themselves black. If I get called African American that's fine, too. I don't think it's that serious.
Monggy! biggrin

I personally hate this because not all black people in America came from Africa. It's confusing and stupid. This is why instead of labels, I think we should all just be "people."

If you called me c***k instead of Asian-American, I would be forced to laugh.
