look up any word, like swag:
AFRICAN PEOPLE ( the type of person ) like caucasian, asian or latino...a black person is an african like a white person is a caucasian wherever he or she lives in the world; it has nothing to do with culture or values...it's so simple !

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...

One of the two sub-species of "colored" people, the other one being a nigger.

Used to describe an intelligent and respectable colored person.
Judgmental person - "Was that party punch spiked?! That nigger is smoking camels!"

Enlightened person - "Naw brah, that's just a black person."

Ok reading some of the definitions of black people. I got really offend so.Let's get the record straight. Most black people don't rape a lot of people. Ok. And some of use are not ignorant and we don't tend to steal. Also not all of us eat fried chicken BTW I'm a very smart black women who have a college degree and, won a spelling bee. So to all the stereotypes who don't like black people fuck you!!!!!

This term is largely given to niggers. Usually when they have entered the room or are able to hear what you are saying.
Jose: Niggers deserve the same rights as us.
Tim: I agree every nig--(Jamaal walks in) every black person should be considered eqaul equal.

A race of people most known for creating the oldest civilizations on earth. Perhaps these people are best known for their construction of the pyramids and their uncanny understanding of science, physics, mathematics and social construction during ancient times. During ancient times these people were known as Moors, Egyptians, and Aboriginal. Black people are also known to be somewhat higher evolved physically. Black people have melanin in their skin and 9-ether hair which protects them from the sun damage and other harsh elements. Also, they are usually bigger, faster, and stronger than all other races minus a few exceptions. However, modern times has been much more unfavorable to these people. Western Civilization raided, pillaged, and enslaved these people in an attempt to steal their vast knowledge and displace them from their true historical roots.
White American: If black people are so dumb why do they have the oldest civilization on earth and how did they build the pyramids?

Black American:Where did you hear that at?

White American: Oh never mind its probably inaccurate.

Black American:Hell yeah, fuck them ancient niggas

The fact that you sons of bitches are talking about black people is really a mockery, speaking of the fact that we are all of African descent. As a black girl, I am currently getting my education at a school that has mostly white people, I have thick, long, curly hair, I attend THREE advanced classes during my school day, I don't like watermelons, and I am proper. There are white women with no ass and a square-shaped body. They sometimes have short, thin, nappy hair, and they most of the time can't dance. Think about that for a change.
Black people somewhat like me: Obama, Oprah Winfrey
