lakers Fan,

As regards your last post, the operative term is "reasonable." An excellent legal interpretation of "reasonable" is what the averaqe thinking individual would do in like or similar circumstances.

Inasmuch as were one to poll one thousand average thinking American citizens of an eclectic mix of ethnic backgrounds, I think it would be a safe wager (actually more of a guaranteed one) that better than 990 of them would associate the term "African American" with a person of color, no?

Also to use your methodology, one would easily construe the same term to refer to a person who poured a bucket of paint over the top of their head. Don't think that would happen either.

Inferred in your question (as misguided as it was), and in your answer.

Or do you refer to yourself as a North American? Or Mrs. Therion as a South African North American?

Ah ha, so you are getting tripped up semantics with which you started this thread

According to your earlier description of what you believe, you'd have had to have been born in Poland yourself. So, according to you, you would simply be an American.

OR anyone who's parents, grand parents etc. were born in Africa, would be an African American.

Or according to your other beliefs, your parents wouldn't be Polish, but European.

All pretty twisted huh?

We certainly had some interesting answers in this thread.

I would not rate actors based on their skin color or ethnic background.

The basis of this thread is an interview with the actress Gloria Reuben . She stated that she ,a black woman detests people referring to her as African American .Her heritage is Canadian .
Charlize Thereon is a white actress born in South Africa and is therefore an African .
