    Default What do they call black people in england?

    Are they called African English?

    This is not a joke question, lol.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    I think they are called "Brits" or "Citizens", it is only in America where we have this drive to separate and create such distinctions.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    Amazingly, it is in agreement that you find the smell of sh*t. I guess I could have made something up to make you feel better.

    My friends just called themselves "Black"

    I have always agreed with Teddy Roosevelt on this one.

    "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation of all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities." Teddy Roosevelt

    "Black British" is used by the British authorities to mean UK passport holders of African or African-Caribbean origin. "African British" is gaining in popularity, from what I hear.
    Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity.

    Teddy Roosevelt was a stupid shitty racist, and he’s been proved wrong anyway. We did “permit” this country to use hyphenation, and it hasn’t ruined us, but wall street has come close.

    It hasn't ruined us, yet.

    There are some who would argue that the increasing number of hyphenated identifiers as well as the increasing number of immigrants who resist adopting American culture is leading to a Balkanization of the U.S.

    So? Some would argue that it's socialism that caused the market collapse...in fact some are arguing that. There's always some fool to argue pretty much any absurdity.

    Too true, Darla, too true. And all too often they wind up on message boards! LOL

    Its not a matter of anyone permitting anything. What a person calls themself is not subject to laws or debate.

    I also think that this practice of the hyphenated naming has not done anything to join us together closer.

    We need comonalities, not things that separate us further.

    I am an american. You, Darla, are an american. BAC is an american. That way we all work towards things that are good for us all.

    Otherwise, BAC wants what is best for african-americans, I want what is best for southern irish-americans, and you want what is best for .......well, for whatever hyphenated name you want to create. (NewYorkerwithyoungskin-american?)


    Forced diversity has taught us to see each other based on race, gender, sexual orientation ect.

    I think the best thing for us is to forget those details. When it boils down to it, we are each individuals. And we can do more together than separately.

    Sol, you are cosntantly awash with anti-anti-racist bullshit. Just give it a rest.

    This is the guy that actually had the gall to get insulted when I said that there was no word as offensive for white men as "nigger" or "cunt" were for other people. He is incapable of recognizing the simple sociological fact that ultra-sensitive slurs are never created for the dominant social group. There is no group on Earth that self-victimizes itself more than white men.

    Wow, I strongly agree with that.

    BTW, does anybody know what they call white people in England?
