shut-up FOOL! we are descendants of africans who came from AFRICA. we don't use specific countries, ethnicities or tribes because we lost that. american of african descent is an appropriate label for peoples in this condition.

you define you and dont stop worrying about us cause we don't give a crap what you consider yourself.
