Default Politically Correct term bites the dust

It's Black. Not African American.



Otherwise, the saying would NOT be Black Lives Matter.

I agree. The term "African American" is racist.

Classifying people outside of sovereignty is racist, sexist, or ageist.

Every black guy that hangs around my buddy's shop has said they find "African American" offensive. The term "black" really only comes up if someone is describing what someone looks like.

I have never used it. I came from a peaceful mixed race neighborhood and black, negro, colored were very well accepted names. At age 75 I see no reason to change.

I always thought "colored" worked.....I mean when I am referred to as "white" I'm fine with that.

Every black person I know has referred to themselves as 'black' (or dark green when I was in the Marines). Never heard anyone but politicians call them(selves) 'African' American.

I NEVER heard a black person I encountered on the streets refer to themselves, or any other black person as African American. Giving descriptions of witnesses/suspects/whomever ... not once.

White people, maybe 50% of the time they would describe someone as AA.

Whenever I used the term, nobody but nobody ever took offense or even acted like they were.

"Unit 504 I'm out with one black male, Maple and Walnut, citizen contact." - Never got one complaint from this or any other use of the term.

I'm not picky about what people of other races call me. Either "Sir" or "Boss" is just fine.

I just go with citizen or American.
