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

Removing LIES And Spreading The Truth
I see myself as an African born here in America.
Exactly! Thats Who I Am....An African Trapped In Amerikkka Through My Ancestral Lineage For 400 Years Plus....

All Brothers And Sisters Forcibly Removed Through Enslavement From Our Brothers And Sisters In The Motherland, Are African, and All The Second Generational Africans That "Immigrated" To The Western Hemisphere, And Any Other Land, Are African, And Will Always Be!

I think "Black" and "African-American" are just by-products that have been comfortably and forcibly engrained due to lost of self-awareness, but are also means to which this beastly white oppressor has placed on us in order to DETRACT us from our History and our people, and for "Assimilationist"/"Integrational" purposes to wipe out their filthy and barbaric crime against HUE-MANITY!

Those tactics are failing and will fail in the end!

Nice Thread My Nubian Queen Concious Plat

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
