Sometimes the two concepts confused in this discussion (not this one specifically but this issue) is linguistic gender and biological sex. One cannot argue from the first to the second.

From what I've seen most schools that offer African-American studies, tie it in with African studies. Medgar Evers College offers a degree in Caribbean studies, the only time I've ever seen it. They don't ironically offer a degree in African/African American studies. However, I believe that the courses should include all places where Africans were brought to be enslaved and the history of African nations and kingdoms. One should know each others history and culture in the African Diaspora.
