Again I do not want to distract by being part of a discussion about the moderators because I have my own views about posters and other moderators on this board, however my interest is getting more views on the topic presented.
I am sorry to hear that you live in a community that still refers to Africans as negro.
This is a problem that is far greater than just in my community so there is no need for pity.
What do the Africans there refer themselves as?
Some say Black, some say African some say Negro.
Where do you hail?
I live in a small community where they adopt the attitudes of the larger country.
What do you think about my input on colorism and the article presented?
