No, it describes Americans who have African roots. Slavery is irrelevant in this term.

Personally, I am and require that I be referred to as a European American since I am descended from Europeans.

It does. As I have pointed out before, AOC is white (a white Hispanic if you will). If the media called George Zimmerman a "white Hispanic" to stir up racial hatred (and despite the fact that his mother is a brown skinned indigenous woman of the Americas), AOC definitely fits the bill.

Yeah! If you want women or blacks to be able to vote, go to a country that allows it! If you want desegregated bathrooms, buses and schools - find a country that has those and move there! America, love it or leave it!









Now, do not take this as an endorsement for socialism. I think we need to make college more affordable, I don't think we need to make taxpayers pay for it. I think we need to make health care more affordable, I don't think we need taxpayers to pay for it for everyone.


However, the idea that any citizen who wants significant change to take place here should "find someplace else" to live is ridiculous and at odds with this country's history.

If Rashida Tlaib can be a “person of color”, why not Justin Amash, who has mostly the same ancestry?

Their top priority is taking stuff from whites and giving it to non-whites.
