I think the celebrities think it makes them seem more Worldly. And for the sake of $$$$ they want every culture to Love them.
However, If I came across a black child that was orphaned, and I just fell in love with that child, I would probably want to be his or her mother. Or especially if some of our black friends suddenly died and it was children I already loved.
BTY, If someone is half white and half black (like my niece) why do people just say they are black?
And where did the term African American come from? There are plenty of black people that are not of African heritage. I guess that would make me, an Irish, German, English, Native American (Indian), and Dutch American.
But then again, how often do you really meet anyone that is the color white or black? It's usually shades of colors. Just sayin'
