I wish there was a "descendant of slaves" option. I would choose that. But there isn't because white people don't like to be reminded that slavery ever existed. That's why we have these other terms in the first place. If they can't call us nig.gers anytime they want then it's better to erase history altogether.

If a Black person says it jokingly like, "Negro pleeeease", no. If a White person says it, I'm going off. I prefer Black as opposed to colored or negro. African-American and Afro-Carib is cool depending on your background.
