African American is a specific ethnicity. Not everyone who is black is African American.

People need to get that.

I just had this argument with my homeboy last week.

Can somebody explain this to me please? I understand this, but at the same time I don’t. I understand that if somebody was born in Ghana, but their child was born in America,…

African American was specifically coined for those who are descendants of the enslaved West Africans brought to the US during the slave trade. 

The name was created because those who are descendants of the enslaved typically cannot identify ethnically with their ancestors. The enslaved West Africans that were forced here came from various lands and varied ethnically, linguistically, culturally. African American specifies those who have historically been in the US for hundreds of years.

Ethnicity is based on commonality of national origin, language/dialect, ancestors, homeland, history, food, and other traditions.

For instance, Haitian (nationality) can also be considered an ethnic group just as Italian-Haitians, Syrian Haitians, Chinese -Haitians. They are all ethnic groups. 

African American and Gullah a specific ethnic groups in the US.

Being Black in the US doesn’t equate to African American because not everyone considered to be “Black” in the US can identify with African American history, traditions, language, culture, beliefs, cuisine, etc.

For instance, Ghanaian immigrants and their children will be considered Black in the US, however they are still ethnically Ghanaian (For instance Akan or Ewe). Haitian immigrants and their children will be considered Black in the US however they are ethnically Haitian.

If I were to move and have children in Ghana, nationality wise my children would be Ghanaian, ethnically they would still be African American.

(I hope I explained that well)

It is just a way for those will similar histories and traditions to connect with each other.

ok, so today at the daycare that i volunteer at it was ‘princess and superhero’ day and this little boy walked in in this sparkling blue dress and my favorite thing is that none of the kids reacted at all, they just told him he looked pretty and went on with they’re day and that is why children are better than adults

white people and non-black people of color, when trying to mock people and make them sound stupid and uneducated, can you not use AAVE? or otherwise use coded language and visuals?

especially the habitual be and dropping of the copula, because I see those two all the fucking time. it’s really gross and even people who i follow do this or reblog things where it’s happening.

and I see non-Black women do this when mocking men in contexts such as street harassment and it’s not cute and just makes you look like a big anti-black racist :)

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus: Ah yes.

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Jesus: What a shame.

Don’t date men who disrespect women, doesn’t matter if he’s nice to you. If he’s constantly disrespecting other women, nah.

If he’s constantly disrespecting other women, he’ll get around to you sooner or later.

Black people are more likely to be queer

Black queers are more likely to get married

Black queers are more likely to adopt children

Yet the face of gay marriage and adoption are white people
