Of late, I have looked up more than a few biographical entries in Wikipedia in support of musicians to whom I have listened from YouTube. In entry after entry, I've come across the rather loathly expression, African-Americans.
All should be offended that many Americans foolishly still call some Americans by the highly inaccurate and insulting name, African-Americans.
Importation of slaves was decreed illegal effective January 1, 1808. By 1840, almost all slaves living north of the Ohio River had been freed. All born in the USA were Americans and not foreigners deserving of a hyphened moniker.
We're living in the 21st century. It shocks that in the 21st century, many still refer to some Americans as hyphenated Americans. Doing so implies a lesser status rendering all those hyphenated as being less than full Americans.
Is it any wonder that many grow up with prejudice? Americans are being taught to view millions of individuals as inferior, as if they need protection like spotted owls and other dying species.
As I showed you in TRAGEDY EXPLOITERS WRONGLY CALL THE MENTALLY-ILL DRIVEN SOUTH CAROLINA SHOOTING AN ACT OF TERRORISM. OTHER TWISTED ONES CALL FOR A BAN AGAINST INDIVIDUALS OWNING GUNS, the biggest promoters of racism in exchange for power are politicians. Racism is a horrible political doctrine. It devalues every individual and turns anyone into monsters as they join groups.
