If we classify ourselves according to origin e'g African, Indian, Chinese, would this mean that so called whites, so called blacks etc born and raised in China automatically become Chinese and stop being African or European regardless of having ancestral roots in either Europe or Africa.

If so, do so called blacks in American who are descendants of Africans classified as blacks become Americans and not Africans since they were born and raised there.

THE LOGIC is that there is no place called Africa or China or India or Europe. Does Africa have trees? Water? Animals? A sky? Rivers? Mountains? If so, that sounds like what is called St. Louis to me. Most of the words you use to think with about how things work do not allow you to see what's actually happening.

People say this piece of land is called this or that piece of land is called that...and they say it to other people. We are on an object called "earth" that is spinning in what we called "outer space". Stop and look and try to see what you're looking at.
