What is Black these days?
  We've all known black to be a color however, have we realized that it now represents a group of people, an ethnicity? On job applications under ethnicity, there was a box that said African American, that box now says black. Do we care? Do we want to be identified as African Americans? Most of us don't really come from Africa, and more than likely don't know of our ancestors who did. So do we classify ourselves with a history that may not be our history? Or do we establish ourselves as Black people? An ethnicity that is identified by complexion, and has no culture.
