I hate this! My psychology teacher calls us “African Americans”. I tell him constantly just to say black because in all honesty white people associate black with everything bad and negative. So saying African American is really just a way for them to ease their white guilt. They say don’t want to offend us by saying black it’s a combination of that and white guilt, mainly white guilt tho.

Mos Def’s “The Ecstatic” is a modern-classic
