It's not a debate but a dialogue about the history in regards to the name (black or African-American) and why so many African-Americans are finding both names problematic.

imhotep,

Glad you made it to the show today, the information shared was on point; its a conversation much needed, but more importantly is the implementation of a such a paradigm shift, across the board, reflecting our true indigenous name(s).

Are we African American, Black or neither of two ...in my view, all of the above


If you are of African Decent should you embrace the title African American. Should we embrace the name given to us by those who enslaved our Ancestors and continue to oppress us, or should we identify with the title "Black People" despite the definition of the word Black. I identify with the name "Nubian" I welcome your reply to this thread. I would like to know which name you identify with and why. I will also have a Blogtalk program today on this subject. You are welcome to listen in or call in. The date and time is posted below. Peace

iam black/afican american.i know where i come from.i will always be more american than african because this is the culture i was born in.i love being from chicago.no matter how much im proud of my ancestor being african,culturely i will never be african.i can read books on africa but i will never be african culturley.even if i was born in africa i would not be african culturely because african is not a country it is a continent.the country in africa im born in would be my culture.my ancestor are african but im american.and that ok by me because there nothing that can change what happen in the past.my ancestor was force to come here and thats what made me american.if a person was from india and migrated england and their kid was born and raise there,the kid would identify with being a brit more than indian even though they might know their indian culture. and if they had a child. the child would identify more with britain as well.no matter how much i know about africa and proud to be one. culturely im american not african because my ancestors was force here

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
