A group of people are not defined by traits Europeans 500 years ago decided were important.

Ignorance shows in every word we type because African have no more darker skin than Indian people. South Africans are very light skin so to refer to a skin condition for a racial label is primitive and regressive and is rooted in cultural racism invented by some Europeans in a way to devalue African people. This devalution was critical in preparing them to be slaves. A condition which requires people to self-hate and lose their identity. In doing this they adopt the words, culture and religion of their oppresors. And thus wipe racism in their own face. Self-Determination defines the natural human condition where people define for themseleves who and what they are. It is not the place or purpose of any other group to decide labels for other human beings. The leaders of teh African community have including the legend Malcolm X has said we are an African people hence if we are in America we are African American. Malcolm X was one of the greatest leaders of the African world and hence unless we are insulting and calling him a fool i must then trust his point has merit and should be treated as valid. Anyone who calls the opinions of this African warrior stupid is a racist bigot.
