Traditionally, it has been used to refer to african-americans whose families have lived in the united states for many many generations, and for people who even have one drop of african ancestry. As a matter of fact, most black people in america look a little different from people who actually live in sub-saharan africa(who in my opinion are actually black) because many black people in america are mixed with european and native american blood.

traits associated with black people but not necessarily limited to them: thick fleshy looking black skin, wide nose, nappy hair, narrower ears, not very much hair, narrower joints, longer eyelashes, and a frontal skull that differs from white and east indian/arab people

note to people who claim indian, indonesian, southeast asian, and pacific islander are black: they actually are brown people.
white guy: tiger woods, what does it feel like to be the richest black athlete ever?
tiger woods: well actually, I am cablinasian(white, black, asian, and native american mixed together).

some black guy walking by: have you lost your damned mind? or i forgot you must be too ashamed to be one of us now that you got paper stacked to the ceiling and you had a white woman as a wife and now have too many white women that wanna sleep with you.
