This is one of the most moronic terms used in our culture. I will now present three reason why the term "African American" is an incorrect and just plain stupid term. 1. Not all black people are American. There are black people in England, etc. Are they still African Americans? 2. Not all black people come from Africa. What about Jamaica, Haiti, and all the other Caribbean nations? 3. Not everyone from Africa is black. There are a lot of white Africans, as you must know. So, how can the term "African American" be considered to good way of referring to black people?
