    CNN now has it "under review" for inappropriateness.

    Wanna bet how long before it's taken down?

    It seems more and more people prefer the term "black American"
    as opposed to "African American".

    I agree!...:thumbsup:

    Add to that the fact not everyone who is black has African origins in their geneology.

    If anthropology is to be believed, we all have African origins in our genes.

    Thanks to the great British and Dutch empires in the last 500 yrs of human history for expediting the spread of black gene pool throughout North and South America as well as Europe

    I'm noticing more and more darker skinned Americans correcting people for this.

    The best Morgan Freeman on 60 Minutes.

    The problem is many blacks like to be called with their ethnic backgrounds. Who's racist?

    According to Morgan Freeman, you are. He said stop talking about race when asked about how to end racism.

    I'm willing to bet that some do-gooder Whiteys coined the term "African-American".
