JWC, All this time, I did not realize that you consider dark skinned Asians, Indians, (Vijay Singh), as Black and thus you don't view BLACK as meaning AFRICAN AMERICAN or AFRICAN exclusively. I can remember during my undergrad years at an HBCU in the south, there were Jordanian, Indian, and other students with skin darker than me (and i'm very brown) but i never considered them BLACK, just dark. If Dark INdians and DArk Asians and Dark Italians and "Black Irish" are called black by some...
