I never understood why we have such a hard time with defining ourselves We keep coming up with new got damn terms that mean the same thing. Colored, Negro, Black, Moor, Nigga, Nigger...I mean it's the same word over and over again just different root languages. It means dark skinned. I mean there are Black people in Australia and they really ain't African. Then it's Afro American, African American, American African... I mean we shouldn't be so word conscious but different terms mean totally...
