Reply to "Rank The Terms"

It's according to for who. If we are referring to me. . .

Negro - Controversial, sure. But I find this term empowering. It reminds me of the Renaissance and progressive Black organizations.
People of color - Very useful term
Minority - Useful, although weird to use. Especially when referring to people in places where POC are majorities
African American
Colored - Antiquated, yet, eh

Nigger, coon, spook and all other offensive epithets don't belong on my list

If I were African American, the ethnicity, that would top the list. If I were born in Africa, that'd make the list African, African-American, Black, and so on as I have it.
