Not just BLACK American Negroes
The traditional definition of race and ethnicity is related to biological and sociological factors respectively. Race refers to a person’s physical appearance, such as skin color, eye color, hair color, bone/jaw structure etc. Ethnicity, on the other hand, relates to cultural factors such as nationality, culture, ancestry, language and beliefs.
“Race relations” is one of the dominant themes in American politics from time to time, and refers to relationships between the major race groups – white, black, Latino and Asian. Note that use of the word “Asian” as a race includes a vast variety of ethnicities such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. America has also had a sometimes troubled history with ethnic strife e.g. during the waves of Irish and Italian immigration to the U.S. These immigrants were Caucasian but had a different ethnicity compared to the Anglo Saxons who preceded them, and were forced to face ethnic discrimination.
The color Black identifies darkies as they were called in the history of racial discrimination. Blacks cannot leave out the discrimination that takes place in our country. BLACK Islanders are strongly underrepresented in Florida. Look how Rachel Jeantel was mistreated, her lack of “Correct” usage of the English language, lack of education in the Florida school system. She looks, black, acts black, she must be BLACK.
