Every now and again there comes a time where every livejournalist must shoot and submit themselves.

I invite you to give into the temptation today, and enjoy the ancient pastime of Photowhoring. C'mon, it's low in carbs!

Well, I do not want to say Niger Black or be hit with a rock, don't I?

I think I made a post earlier in which I discussed the usage of "African-American vs Black" or so. As long as you're not using it in a derogatory manner, I really could care less.

But I don't know. Do you want to be hit with a rock? I'll take requests just for today.

hmhmmm, the color words to describe race always kind of put me off. you're not black and i'm not white. you are a nice shade of brown (sigh, i love brown skin, especially the warm tone of many african americans), and i'm an annoyingly freckled shade of peachy beige. really dark skin, the kind that is almost blue undertoned from africa is fascinating, and milk coffee color like a mid tone puerto rican/cuban is one of my favorites too. but, white and black (both of which are not colors but terms refering to light) we are not.

ok, i know this is ridiculous nit picky.

Well, I never really liked either reference to be honest. It's just more evidence that we people as a whole are essentially unable to see character before colour.
