    Excuse my ignorance if you take it that way, but when you say "Black Englishman" are you from England or the UK?

    England is within the United Kingdom.... They are one of the same... I lived in the City of London.... South London to be exact... I was born in Guyana South America... moved to England at the tender age of 3 lol.... arrived in New York in 1995... The 2 cities are very much alike... and I'm a British Citizen... No disrespect but I have found how uninformed many Americans are when it comes to the rest of the world, I have been asked before, where in London is Paris... ( I swear ) I took out an atlas and tried to educate the young man... I could go on, but I have found some have found my views offensive.... Looking forward to hearing back from you.

    I look forward to discussing English history and Common Law with you.

    I used to have a bud from England. He returned to England this year.
    I forgot what county he was from.

    According to Wikipedia:

    England comprises parts of Great Britain
    Great Britain is the largest island of the British Isles
    United Kingdom is composed of four countries: England, Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland.

    It's just the truth ... but look what the universe has delivered ... a TEACHER !!! ... :jumping: :jumping: :jumping:

    How could anyone feel disrespected, for such a kind introduction as the above?!

    I appreciate you being here with us, and look forward to reading / learning more!

    This is my first post so I can't post links, but the assumption that all British people are English is apparently held by most of the world... moreover, if the daily telegraph is to be believed, more than three quarters of Brits cannot correctly identify all countries in the United Kingdom...funny that!

    You are too modest. I'm a lurker of this forum, and it is swamped with great minds, great teachers, great visionaries, great poets etc. Some eye opening and deeply inspiring comments have honestly..blown my mind. I'll be taking notes...

    One Love...
