Us slave descendants should be called Americans instead of African Americans because I think that name doesn't identify who we are as a people. I think that name just confuse us black slave descendants. I know it might be hard and difficult to give up who we are, but us blacks should identify ourselves as Americans. Let's not be segregated with no identity. I believe no one cares about us slave descendants and we should forget about getting money that we deserve. These people are evil and they don't want us here and that is very obvious, because of the movements from white people and uncle toms.

I'd rather be identified as a human being. Much better than "American." Just my opinion though.

good point, but we have to be called something with respect. We don't know anything about Africa.

There are a lot of blacks moving out of this country. They just have enough of here. I think it is mostly black women. If I had a chance I would move to South Africa.

I heard that before but for you to hate this you should see other countries.

If you got to see poor countries see how people suffer then you will appreciate the little you got here in this country,

why do you hate this country?

So why stay in the USA since you vehemently hate this country?

Please move. Life is short. Tomorrow isn't promised.

Do you speak more than one language?

Are you familiar with SA's culture?

Do you have a passport?

How will you support yourself in Africa if you're a woman?

That's a got damn lie. Stop being an idiot and research the African continent. I probably know more about Africa in its entirety than many native born Africans, not bad for a descendant of Africans that were stripped of their cultural identities. Through DNA testing I found out that I descend from over eight different African regions, so the term "African American" fits us perfectly.

Being identified as just black is absurd, for the simple fact that our ancestors never identified or unified under a damn color. People identifying under colors such as white or black is relatively new in world history.
