Caslon10750 saidI have often wondered why Americans of european descent arent called European-Americans.
RandyMan saidUh, yeah, African doesn't mean black and American doesn't mean white so what's the point of this post other than to point to the ignorance that surrounds us? I think MSUBioNerd sums it up well.
Meanwhile, the article (that pictures some unrelated goof) only broadly relates the details of this 'case,' and seems to point more to the guy being 'bashed' because his classmates are ignorant of the fact that it's possible to be African-American and white and less to any real racist sentiment. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out...or not.
