    the irony is most blacks look at Africans in shame, disgust and self-hatred

    The term was probably thought up by some lily white pussy who was too afraid to call a black person black. I've never thought of the term "black person" as racist or demeaning . It's a fucking description. Everything these days has to be renamed because the world is becoming pussified .

    I know some Hatian and African people that get pissed if you call them African Americans. They don't like to be associated with the lazy American blacks.
