    We need to stop non-sense of calling or not calling people 'black' based on where they are from.

    Doesn't matter if you are from Barbados, Nigeria or the USA, if you are of African descent (not counting those of who are barely 'black' such as mixed people), you are black.

    Now if you want to distinguish those of African descent who are Americans from those who are from Nigeria or Canada or whatever, then you can use African American, Nigerian, or African Canadian or whatever.

    the only way to solve this in some degree is to willfuly learn about urfamily history and embrace it.

    but how do we know such history is right?

    I agreed with most of it...

    In Panama Blacks are called West Indian.

    I think outside of the US people are alot more inclined to just stick to their nationality as opposed to ethnicity like in the states.

    Now of course people have other modifiers to specify what group they associate with, but for the most part state pride takes precedent.

    Black by White people. I feel like it only been cool to be Jamaican Haitian African ( Nigerian, Ghanian Somali? Hmm maybe no diss...................) for the last 10 years because African Americans, negroes, coloreds blacks 5/6 generations deep, weren't really fucking with blacks that emmigrated to America, still aren't in certain areas.
