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.


i agree with you!! dont call us white if you dont wanna be called black... xp

Agreed. biggrin
Unless a person white or black has a foreign ascent or I can tell what race they are (i.e Native American and such) I called them either White or black.

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
No humans are native to the Americas; all of them emigrated from the Old World to the New.
I prefer being called black, because Im not from africa XD so why would you call me African American.
Black is a color wtf do I care if someone says your black I say "wow you know your colors good job"

Though Im only 25% black but since my skin is darker than white Im "Labeled as colored" *shrugs*
