OP, you should add a poll. Also there happen to be several people who identify as black on these forums.

I'm black, got a lot of abuse about it in Primary School and Secondary level :unsure:

On a happier note, who else is black?

I don't understand why people are so afraid to use the two words "black people", but instead they use "African-American" or "African Descendant". When someone sees a white person, no one looks at them as "European-Australian-Asian-American people" etc (or whatever). :blink: And I don't see how saying "that black dude", or "black fellow" can be racist or simply offensive?
Also, I believe there are black people playing this game, why wouldn't there be? :P

Jesus Christ, just say black. No one in their right minds would get offended by being called "black". In fact, it's pretty stupid when someone says someone is "African American" when they're actually Jamaican. Or better yet, just American. Or even Cuban. Or European.

Yeah, I'm black.

There used to be a Haitian around. Black but not "African American". I'm also sure there was at one point an African, and at another a black person from England and another from Canada. I'm not sure where their ancestors were from.

Not trying ot be offensive here, but why are we expected to call them "African Descendants" while they call us "White". Here in Europe we just say "Black", because well, that's kind of what they are...

You should call them anything but African American unless they are from Africa.

I'll call whoever what I want to call them, be them blacks or not.

I'm sure of it. I wouldn't be using a slur like that though. Makes you look racist.

Negro isn't a slur.
You're thinking of that other word.

In fact, why the hell did we retire that word anyway? It seems a'lot more useful.

Go to any African-American forum and use that word while showing a white guy in your avatar. You'll find out.

So some people find it offensive?

What is offensive about the term "Negro"?

True. Here in the Netherlands we still use "neger", which translates to "negro. Saying "nikker" (nigger), "roetmop" (the broom a chimey-cleaner uses) or "zwartkop" (blackface) will land you in a world of trouble though. :p

Its derives from latin it means black as does Negro.
