As you might have noticed, many many people feel offended because of your usage of terms like 'negro' and 'negroid', but time after time we witness that you really don't care; why can't you just show a little bit of respect? Everybody agrees that you are starting some good topics, we all respect you for doing that, but why do you persist using very colonial, racist terms like 'negro' and 'negroid'? I have explained in several topics why the word is racist, colonial, offensive, etc. more than once, but you just ignore everything I and others have brought forward and keep saying the words 'negro' and 'negroid' are not offensive, without giving any solid argument, while I and others have shown you on countless occasions why these terms are not done!
Why are you so arrogant? Why don't you show any respect while people have asked you politely to use more respectful terms, and have given you countless arguments why you should change your terminology. Does the world revolve around Bantu-Kelani? Is Bantu-Kelani the centre of the universe?
If it is really not important how we are described than why is it so hard for you to change your terminology? If it really doesn't matter you could easily say: "Well, it doesn''t matter how we call ourselves, so let's abandon the terms negro and negroid", but the fact that you keep using these terms shows that it is very important to you how we are described, so I would like to ask you again, why is it so important to you to uphold a designation which has been imposed on us by the (former) slavemaster?
It's gona take bravery to stop (mental) slavery!
