that would be African...NOT AA...and no, that wouldn't be "black" if black is a synonym for AA. Unless of course you want to be super technical and lump everyone with african ancestry in america together as AA.

What are you talkin' about? Afrikans in amerika are Afrikan too. Just because MANY would try & find some reason to downplay this fact does not mean that it isn't true.

so now you're african? You have african blood, yes, but AA are not african lol. Similarly, white Americans aren't European, especially the ones with Native ancestry.

If WE have Afrikan blood, sweetheart, I'm afraid that would mnake US Afrikan as well.

In spite of OUR differences in linguistics, and culture, OUR DNA solidifies that WE are of Afrikan descent, hence making US Afrikan too.

There's no way around that immutable fact...

just because they're not talked about doesn't mean that they don't exist. Did you learn about Louisiana creoles in depth in High school? NO!(if you grew up outside of louisiana) You heard only about AA history. And just because they are a minority within a min...well i dunno if we can call mexicans a minority now lol but that's another topic....doesn't mean that their history doesn't exist. That's like saying we shouldn't talk about black history and culture because it's the same as white history and culture and blacks are "only" 10% of the population of the usa.
LOL why did I have to learn about my creole ancestry in high school??? Lol that makes no sense if I have relatives that live in DULAC till this day trust me I know my history and it didn't come from a book ! Now back to Afro Mexicans who said we shouldn't talk about them! Mexicans barely acknowledge their existence and will pretend like they never heard of them and what does that have to do with Creoles being black ?? Afro Mexicans are from Mexico not the USA ! You can make all the arguments you want and if you look black you are black so whateva Hun!!!!!

afro-mexicans can be found all over the southwestern united states. They are not necessarily fresh off the border from mexico, they may be Texican, Chicano, etc. I just met one the other day! You are African American then blaq honey, just don't try and make others who know their history and embrace it identify the same as you do and abandon their roots and ancestors.

...while claiming cablinasians...mulattoes, creoles, jamaicans and everything under the sun to be part of their dysfunctional and desperate club.
The AAs that are unaware do that, even then the majority don't. if they do its because creoles and other blacks try to fit in with AAs; I find it strange that they do that when they talk about AAs behind their backs.

This is the same club that made blacks world-wide look some what normal, yet look at what they receive in return.

The term AA was not, I repeat, was not intended for people who aren't the descendants of slaves brought to the U.S., no way around that!

yeah it would do you good to pick up a book though and learn some history. What i was saying is that just because things are not highlighted as being part of or "ignored" within our public schools and not publicly taught doesn't mean that that history should be neglected or ignored.

So, do you assert that so-called "African-Americans" are Afrikans too?

Usually on the ethnicity slots, the option is African American/Black (which would be appropriate for West Indians, not just for identifying as African American but BLACK).
Some things are changing though. I've seen some forms where you can actually write out your full ethnicity. Hopefully things will improve when it comes to those ethnicity slots as America is getting more and more diverse as time goes on.
Agree,yes I do notice the newer ethnicity forms include more choices. Also there has also always been a slot on ethnicity questionaires that is labeled "other",but that designation "other' was never intended for black west indians,but was intended for rare groups like the Austrailian aboriginals,some Pacific groups,etc.
I know some west indians,biracials,and others,who say they just check the box that is labeled "other",and don't write anything in it,but just check the box.,Because they like myself,don't consider what they fill out on an ethnicity questionaire to be of crucial importance,or even what they really consider themselves to be, as it's not like what you write down is going to be posted on the news,or in a public magazine or anything. So you just choose the best box to check,so you can get on with the business of whatever establishment you're filling out the ethnicity questionaire for.

we all know that there are only 4 groups other than white in the USA blaqhoney! White KKK americans don't acknowledge anyone other than white and they hardly differentiate between one European group to the next so what chance do you think that they're going to see the multiple nationalities and cultures of other groups! There are the Mexicans/wetbacks, the n()ggers, the chinks, and Abdul. You've GOT to belong to one of those 4. Just like a typical SLAVE, you think that whatever the Anglo-Saxon white man rules he has set is right and you go by that. Typical for slave descendants. You can really tell a person's breeding by their values...
