I am truly disgusted with all these asinine definitions of black people. The fact that so many fail to realize that their ancestors used black people in so many ways is ridiculous. Hell, you never know, might have a couple of black people in you family!!! All those so-called definitions are coming from people who are completely ignorant. The stereotype that they are so used to are coming from things heard and unseen. There are millions of educated black people. So many of the things we use around the house were made by black people, things that the other races probably wouldn't have thought to make. So before you speak out on your ignorance, think about all the things you wouldn't have if black people weren't around. Don't be blinded by ignorance & don't get caught up in it, either.
Race #1: All black people are ignorant and dumb!!!
Black person: Really? Do you watch TV?
Race #1: Of course!! I love my TV!!
Black person: Really??!! Well, did you know that a black man invented the piece to make pictures flash across the screen??
Race #1: *silent"
Black person: i bet you also didn't know that a black man created the toilet, the stop sign, the iron, the washing machine, conducted the first open heart surgery and the soles for your shoes.
Race #1: Wow, i don't know what to say...
Black person: I bet you don't.

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...

Arguably the coolest people on Earth, but constantly have their culture and rights taken away from them- globally. Once created the first empires in the world, most of them have now vanished. They live in a different reality than other people, which is why they are commonly misunderstood. A lot of their problems stem from past oppression, but also modern failures.
Africa was once home to the richest countries on Earth. Once Europeans settled in and killed half of their black population, they became a war infested country burdened with guns.

Black people created almost everything known in American popular culture, but other races steal their ideas and claim it for themselves.

Black people have been discriminated against globally- from Brazil, to Australia, to the Philippines.

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 Black Person is someone who has to fight racism and ignorance, who has to work twice as hard to prove him/herself to succeed in life, and is probably the most misunderstood and feared of all races.
Black Person
A hard working black man walking down the street wearing jeans dark jacket and a baseball cap sees white woman on the same side of the road coming towards him thinks to himself I should cross over to the other side of the road or put on my headphones to make her know that I am so not interested in attacking her! But she sees him and saves him the trouble by crossing over to the other side herself anyway..thank you!!
