Topic: african-americans


is there really such thing as an african american, an irish american, or any other ------- american? i mean American, thats not a race thats country, if you live in germany or france or india, your nationality is probably of that country, but in america, we have all come together as one. an african-american for instance, say your lineage has live in the US since 1900, your an american, because that is your home, if you just moved from africa, your an african until you gain citizenship, and then youv become an american, then you get maried and have a child, that child, if born in the US, is an american, if born elsewhere, he is an american because his parents are. if i moved to egypt, and live their, gained citezenship, and 100 years later, all of my decendants are completly irish, what are you going to call them? Irish-american-egyptians? unlikely, you will call them E-G-Y-P-T-I-A-N-S. so that is my line of thinking.

I don't know any African-Americans. All the black people I know are full blooded American. Not one came from Africa. Maybe his great-great-great-grandfather did, but he didn't.

My grandfather immigrated to America to escape the Turkish genecide of the Armenians. Only from my father down we were born in America. I do not consider myself an Armenian-American -- I am American and thats all there is to it.

okay scratch that post, the black people i know seem to think that their rights and privilidges should be handed t othem, so instead of being hard workers, my black friends just complain, and i do have adult friends of african decent.


Maybe you hang out with lazy and spoiled kids, but it has nothing to do with their color.

You best put some more thought into that statement, kid. Generalities don't fly around here.

That's too much of a generalization. I have black friends who tag on property and then moan about racist cops when they get caught and how they have no rights. I also have black friends who are hard workers, and great people in general.

Its the same with any race. I know Mexicans and white people that break the law and are lazy bums and expect eveyrthing handed to them on a silver platter. I also know Mexicans and white people who are God-fearing honest people.

People are people, though it is true there are racial correlations in almost every aspect of life (wealth, success, prison demographics).
