GUEST,Don Last BS: The term Afro American? (162* d) RE: BS: The term Afro American? 30 Jan 07

The term afro american should not apply when the individual has cycled through more than 2 nations or is distanced from Africa by more than 2 generations.

Basicly it is a transitory term that is part of the evolution of the word Negro that has gone through many permutations, some fine and some despicable. Negro, Shwarta, black, colored, nigra, nigger, afro american etc

I prefer to go with human being.
