    …why take offense to her Constitutional right to call herself after her native ancestry?..she’s African in Ancestry and a citizen of America. Kind of a double standard to criticize her and take that right for yourself…but I guess you don’t see that?

      “African” American is a poor way to attempt to describe your race because there are many non-Negro African Americans.

        …you’re on the wrong thread Pus head…pop that big pimple on your shoulders and go away!
        …African American is not a Race Stupid..it’s a Nationality…sheesh!…the ignorant must try it!
