    There is one question that has always crossed my mind when it comes to the citizens of The United States and equality. If the blacks of our nation want to truly be treated equal and wish to end segregation, why, as a whole, does the black community insist on being referred to as African Americans? I see it as, if you were born in this land, you’re an American. Nothing more, nothing less. My decendants are from Germany, Ireland, Scotland and right here in the US from the tribe of the Cherokees. Does that mean I’m to list myself as German American or Irish American and so on? I truly would love to hear your opinions and answers. Thank you.
