People of any kind of dark pigmentation of African descent. Yeah, I said it: African descent. I'm black, and just because of this doesn't mean that I listen to rap. I don't use the "N" word, even though other black people think I can use it whenever I want. New Edition is an author here who says he's black, but here's what I'm thinking: NICE TRY. All the people here have the wrong definition.
Black people are people, after all.

A term that refers to the race of humans most recently decended from Africa, regardless of current country of residence. The exception is that it doesn't normally refer to people of Egyptian decent, since they appear to be mostly closely aasociated with Brown People.
Some black people are now Canadian, but there ancestors are still from Africa.

I don't think Egyptians count as black people.

A race of people. They are stereotyped as being racists, thugs and eating fried chicken. These aren't necesarily true. Also, I'm absolutely positive you can meet a white, Hispanic or Asian person who loves fried chicken, is racist or commits crimes.
Asian, white, Hispanic and black people are all equal. Obviously.

A race that is often associated with chicken, drugs, kool-aid, laziness, anything negative. But they have a month dedicated to them (FEBURARY) and take over the sports and music of the world. They are a proud race that is often put down so they tend to fire back in negative ways. But all in all a great people

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.

Black people are people who orginally come from africa, but there are different breeds of blacks we are not all the same. I hate it when we say those are your people because we're black. A lion isn't the same as a tiger. A Pigeon isn't the same as a hawk but they all come from the bird family. We even have different skin colors, from light to dark. Unity is an deception, Black Panther, Black Pride even KKK is an illusion any group that does this is decieving themselves. The kkk doesn't even know they have white africans. Even in the white race a british girl and a blonde from California are not the same people even if their ancestry is the same, their mentality isn't. Black Americans who were brought here through slave trade aren't truly African Americans, they are black but they have no real conncection with Africa. Black or race is an identification it doesn't mean anything, you're born alone you die alone. My ancestry is Nigerian Im american born my accent is american, not one black person from the states ever took me under their wing. They are just like tribes in the state only difference they call it their hood but like I said Unity is an illusion. God intended this for a purpose, we wants us to stick to our kind not race but people of the same mentality, lingo, culture, heart, values for the most part.
I love my black people from Ghana

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!
