African american people may reject this definition but things are like that, in fact hiding the term african behind black is useless...it's all the same !
Also, if you reject this definition that means that you think that we're all different, no colors no " groups of humans " not to say " races "...and that is true ! being 100% african, caucasian, asian is a joke genetically speaking...
to close the debate...do a dna test and if the result is more than 50% african you are black !
Being black is sometimes a mental construction that is impose to you by what the society want black people, african people to be...
other black guy: yeah! he got a pretzel.

Blacky#2(Or 1, depending on who had previously spoken): You racist fuck! Let's get'um!
***As if by magic, the entire black people family, plus friends appears out of thin air and jumps the White/Yellow/Red skinned person.***
