Someone of African/West Indian origin, with dark skin. Commonly and wrongly generalised by caucasians.
Racist: "Urgh we cant sit here. Theres black people near by."
1st Black person: "Look lady, I am not a thief and I do not own a gun. I have never been in prison, and my dark skin does not make me unclean. I graduated high school and I have a degree in accountancy. Now leave me to eat lunch (which I am going to pay for) here with my 2 kids, who are also intelligent like me, and have inherited my good morals. Dont discriminate - apprechiate."

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."

A black person is the same as a white person. The same as a mexican, Asian, ect. It’s just a color. I’ve met multiple black people who are very nice. They are respectable and respect me.

There’s no such thing as bad blacks. It’s just a bad person. Same thing for whites, Mexicans and all that. Don’t be racist, don’t hate, we are all the same. Keep in mind I’m a prior military police and now a civilian officer.

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!!
