A people that have overcome great struggles, though others try and keep them down. People say that they use racism as a crutch but in reality they don't know what it means to be black, they don't understand how they are still discriminated against. A people that use the word "cracker" in reference to how white people would crack a whip at the black slave, and say its racist, and don't understand that they use the word because white have been using the word "nigger" for years. A people that still have to prove themselves to people who think of themselves as higher beings. People who have done so many great things but are still treated like trash. A people with a great determination, who wont stop fighting for equality.

as a black female reading some of the definitions about blacks on this site, i was very disturbed at the highly offensive statements about blacks. I'm sure most of the people who wrote these definitions have gone solely on racial stereotypes and have not even been wronged by a black male or female. There are good and bad people of every race, not just black people. education is not based on the color of your skin, rather what you do with that knowledge. I'm sure if i went to any part of the world I would find an uneducated or person that eats fried chicken. I really hope one day people will change the way they look at black people. I really do.
damn, all black people do it eat chicken and watermelon. they are lazy and loud!

man, quit stereotyping!

People who have brown skin but somehow are called "black". These people come in different personalities. For example, Ghetto, Oreos, Normal,"Gangstas" & Bible lovers.

Ghetto: (while she's braiding someone's hair) so i was like; bitch go find ur own muthafuckin' mann, no body aint gona find yo nasty ass attractive here!

Costumer: Mmm Mmm Mmm
Friend: (eating fried chicken) u tell 'em guurl!
Oreo: (posh british voice) So, quite frankly Hannah did deserve that because if she didn't then it wouldn't be fair on us.

White friend: Grace you're so right! and did you see her maths test score? she got a 6C! (aka i think a B?)
Oreo: Ahaha! yes, she really needs to study more. I also fancy her boyfriend Jack, i think he is cute!

Gangsta: Ay yo brick! did u see ma bitch kelly? she be actin' all weird now, that bitch be fukin wid me or what?
Brick (friend): Man I heard she be wid that white ass cracka John, Ay there he is now man! let's beat that mudafuka up!
Gangsta: Yeh man that damn cracka and I dont wana know what he be up to with ma bitch kelly, fukin her up wid he's 2 inch dick! man let get 'im!
White guy: Shit, niggers are coming my way!
Gangsta: Ay ay, did he just call me a nigga? that white ass mudafukin' cracka! imma fuck him up!!
(white man beaten so bad, don't say I didn't warn you white people!)
Priest: Now father Jehovah, we ask you in the name of God to bless all these people in this buliding! Oh Lord!
Others: Ayyymeen!
Preist: And bless those who think bad of us, for we know we are sinners and we forgive them!
Others: Ayyymeen!
(after church)
Kid :Momma, I want to play with James today, you said I could after church
Mom: Daniel! you know James doesn't believe in God nor does he attend church and you should know better than to think of socializing with non christians! when we get home you'll be hit again and won't have dinner tonight. Did you do your math homework?
Kid: No momma, satan has took over me and i am ashamed please forgive me?
Mom: Don't ask me ask God, what did God say about forgiveness?
Kid: Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, Acts 3:19
Mom: good boy, no sing what you learnt in bible studies today
Kid: The love of God is greater far,Than tongue or pen can ever tell.....
Black people, you gotta love 'em!

People with a dark complexion. Many different tones. THey are of Arican heritage and very rich in culture, they have been through the most in history and still face challenges in life today. A mixed race person of today is cast as 'black' due to their dark complexion and their history. They have a lot of pigmentation and therefore thicker skin. They are known to have thicker hair than over ethnic groups.
Black People 'Black dont crack'
Black people 'Ebony'
Black people 'African'

-A group of people who have greatly contributed to society but don't get respect for it. Instead they are looked upon as niggers and violent thieves with low intelligence instead of equals with a genuine capacity for great exploits. They feel they are oppressed by society, but on average, they do not emphasize their potential. Therefore other races see them as inferior but they refuse to acknowledge the fact that were are all humans. All the same.
Black, white, yellow, brown, purple? These are colors. But we are PEOPLE. Black people need to step up.

Before:The Orginial human beings created in Gods image that owned the world. Created Mathematics/Science to build a better civilization Egypt, Orginal keepers of the Gold and resources, can make and produce different colors of humans..

The illegitimate parents of all races Albino+Albino=(White People)

Now: Humans that had yet to realized their true potential, enslaved with a forgotten History by their own creations, Manipulated by others to exploit and become the backbone of their wealth, Slowly exterminating theirselves, the real reason why People make the Forbes 400 list. Biggest consumers, most hated but people want to be like them, feared by others due to defined presence, the unorganized humans..
Black people created most of the technology of today in the past, it is only be recycled, renamed and reused..

A severely misunderstood race that isn't all that bad under all the stereotypes and reality TV.
Casandra thought all Black People were ignorant until she met her new boss Kendrick who was very literate and articulate.
