"Black Families of Europe" seems to me another very good reason to drop this "Black People" bit and get back to African People. We were African when we were started onto the Middle Passage; we were African when we were dropped off during the Middle Passage; we were African when we arrived on these shores; we were African when we started work in this land; we were African when we were encouraged to work harder; we were African when our Families were fractured; we were African when we were encouraged to tell on each other and we are African today ... even though we expend entirely too much energy doing the "white supremelunacy" bit of denying our African Origins with this "Black" stuff and the treasonous "African American" bit. (This is not the "United States of Ethnic America". Any efforts to divide this nation amount to treason. Does anyone suppose that every ethnic group in this country all decided to refer to them/ourselves as "[ethnic] Americans" at the same time? Or was this an external influence. Where, then, would be the origin of this particular bit of treason? ... oh, right: "but "we" are not "amerikkans",") And, please: stop furthering their all too effective efforts to keep us apart with this talk of "we didn't call it Africa!": we didn't call it "Black" either! <shrug> But that's just me. I'll just stay over here in the corner, shaking my head at all the questions of "why can't we pull it together?!".
