Default Re: Racism

Wait why are we americans? Just because someone has dark-colored skin, does not mean they're african. You can't classify us as americans... I guess we're caucasian-americans? Or english-americans? Calling us americans and the rest african-americans, arab-americans, etc. makes them sound like they are only half american, aren't they as american as we are? If you live in America you are American, and as I said, calling someone an african-american can be considered prejudice, I called a dark-colored skin kid at my school an african-american, and he got pissed because he's not from Africa. To call someone african-American, unless you know of their heritage, is seemingly prejudice, as they could be from Jamaica or Brazil, or a myriad of other places. Just my opinion, but it makes us sound dominant by not having a prefix in front of american. We're the "Americans", but they're just the African-Americans or Mexican-Americans, they can go sulk in the shadows...

I'm way too high (too high too high)
To be feeling this dry and low
I'm way too tired, I've tried
I'm fired up and ready to roll
Letís go
