Is identifying, as a Black America or African American racist?


Ones skin tone has, arguably, nothing to do with intellect, ambition or talent, as is demonstrated, so often, by successful people of a varying skin colors. If one demands an equal position; is this achieved by a noted separation and division due to ones color or is this best achieved by an identification with those to whom you wish to be equal to? If skin color becomes the identifier, racism than becomes the motivation.

    Dashing-I think you missed the point here. Being German and brought up in a mixture of cultures and neighborhoods in the 40's, no one ever called themselves a hyphenated American.

    This is the difference.

    Sri--Pride comes from self respect and a sense of accomplishment and purpose, not from the color of ones skin embraced by an identity. At best I am a sapient being and at worst I am of German ancestry, who may have 20,000 years earlier left Africa.
