53. Many blacks in the US are not "African-American"
There are many blacks from Latin America here, me included, and blacks from the Caribbean and Africa that do not share culture and history with African-Americans. Still, we are still black and live in this nation, and we experience racism and discrimination as well.

Do you think a racist person cares whether a black person was born here or not?
