On a daily basis I am going to post information on all the different ethnic groups that are classified as "black people". Most who know me personally know that I do not like the term "black". Now don't get confused , me not liking the term black has nothing to do with my skin complexion, nothing to do with the texture of my hair , or my ancestry. I am proud of all of those characteristics.
Here are several reasons why I dislike the term "black"
1. It is a misnomer: a misapplied or inappropriate name or designation. 2. an error in naming a person or thing.
2. Denationalization: to remove (an industry or the like) from government ownership or control. 2.to deprive of national status, attachments, or characteristics.
3. It creates an illusion that we are all suppose to act, look, think, talk the same and or share the same culture, faith, history, lifestyles, values etc.
