Reply to "Rank The Terms"

Almost too close to call:
African-American (I prefer the hyphen)
Black


(Close, but not too close to call)
African


Don't really use, but they don't bother me either:
'Of Color' - as in "people of color"
Minority


Colored (It implies to me that there's a standard, just plain person, and that we're not the standard archetype; a "Kind of" man, so I don't like it)

Negro (I don't like the term, but I'll use it as a derogatory term for blacks that I don't think act in our best interests...)

(The untouchables):
Nigger
Spook
Coon
