I only ask because the politically correct term keeps changing and I find "African American" to be particularly inappropriate for a "person of color."

Here's why...one would assume that "African American" would be a person (or one with ancestors) from Africa. Ernie Els, PGA Tour player, hails from Africa. If he moved to the United States, would he then be "African American?"

ha ha ha ha ha ha.....to some...yes.

to me uhhhhhhhhh, naw man.. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

i can't speak for all blacks but i've never had a problem with:
black guy
white guy
mexican guy
indian guy
whatever.....

but, i've seen in places like the dominican republic where people i
consider black (american point of view) do not appreciate being called
black. it's a class thing down there. thats why this article is so interesting
to me. there appear to be vestiges of that "mentality" that still remain
in america. i've done a bit of traveling and as far as race matters go, i
consider america to be far ahead. once while in jamaica i noticed the
lighter skinned blacks had the better jobs (banks, malls, etc.) while the
darker skinned had more menial jobs. even on cruise ships there is a
type of race-based employment. italians run the ships, indians (east)
tend to be security, east europeans tend to be overseers of services,
blacks and some lighter skinned orientals operate the various bars and
smaller 24 hour restaurants and the darker skinned orientals tend to
supply manual labor. now this is in no means the rule, just what i have
noticed. very interesting. once in negril a light-skinned black (mulatto)
told me a ni==er joke. i quickly advised him not to repeat that joke to
any american blacks. what was wierd was the fact there was a black guy
(also an employee) standing nearby and he had no reaction whatsoever!

again pertaining to this article, i sincerely hope the color allegations
are proven untrue. i've met ms.moon and i do not believe her to be
that type person.

yeah dbl.oh..i read that.it's gonna get nasty... Shocked Shocked

the journal needs at least ONE editor with experience in black
culture!! i read this article and couldn't find one reason tiger woods
and barak obama were even mentioned!!! hell, there are millions
of bi-racial people in america, thats no big deal. neither tiger or
barak have been implicated in a discriminatory lawsuit. i just don't
see the reasoning for the article to be "contexted" that way. Shocked

or am i just an old grouch.......like ted!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

HEY dbl.OH!!!! any more news?? Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
