I am unsure as to whether this question was asked of you before, as I could not locate the post...

Are you a white person, or have you ever been refered to as a white person by another?

Based on the knowledge at hand, I would have to say say that 'African' is a term assigned by Racist/White Supremacists to non-white victims of Racism/White Supremacy, as a means of classifying these individuals who possess a set of visually identifiable iconic traits,

and/or,

a term used by Racist/White Supremacists to identify those individuals who may or may not possess these visually identifiable iconic traits, but remain domiciled on the Continent of Africa.

These visually identifiable iconic traits may include heavily melanated (pigmented) skin and/or specific facial bone structure, and/or a specific texture or hair, the genetic information of which could eventually be traced to someone(s) domiciled on the Continent of Africa in the past.

To this end I do suspect that I have encountered several individuals classified as 'African'.

Have you?

I suspect this to be the case as well.

I have concluded that ultimately, the word itself has no intrinsic value other than what the Racist/White Supremacists have assigned to it, by using it as a means of classifying non-white VORs for the purpose of mistreatment based on that classification.

But then again, is this not also the case for the vast majority of human classifications;

Black, Hispanic, Arab, etc?

None of these words have any value other than what are endowed upon them as a means to distinguish (separate) the human family into various groups, for reasons which, as the evidence shows, are mostly non-productive and hence, do not promote a system of Justice.

What do you mean when you say 'african'? You are asking has anyone seen an 'african' but you have not said what an 'african' is. How will I know the person is an 'african' when I see the person?

It's like asking if anyone has seen a 'necromonger' without telling anyone what a 'necromonger' is. In order for somone to know if they have seen a 'necromonger' they are going to have to have some information that allows them to make a distinction of what a 'necromonger' is and also what a 'necromonger' isn't. Without this information there is no way for a person to know, beyond a shadow of doubt, whether or not they have seen a 'necromonger'.

What does an 'african' do that nobody else does?

Hi edward,


you are correct. I have no workable definition for what an african would be. But i use the word all the time.

I am not going to use it anymore.


allen


How will you do that?
