I really don't understand the african american label? Most blacks in America weren't even born in Africa, much less even been to Africa. So African American IMO shouldn't even apply.
And for those who say, that's where there ancestors where from, doesn't hold up cause if it did we would all be running around putting where our ancestors where from before the American part. We all know the American part should be first anyway.
If you're born here, you're American, period! Sorry but if you're black your black, if you're white your white, etc..
Unless you just arrived, then you're an illegal. haha!

True, but it's not a racial slur if you call a white person:
I'm sure there's more, so feel free to add to the list of non-racial slurs towards whites.
