As though we speak the same languages, eat the same foods, and have the same culture because we are black. When its them though, they love to highlight the differences.   Its insulting. You can determine who I am by just looking at me.

lol, i do this to white people sometimes.  American White person: "Oh im german, irish and have some polish in me too."
Me: "oh, so you're white?"


i do this to jewish and italians all the time. LOL they stay tryna distinguish themselves and im like nah son you white.


Actually it depends on what type of jews and if they are northern Italians or southern Italians. Most Italians in North America are Sicilians. I grew up in an Italian neighborhood and I actually love to remind them of their Moorish blood, because it drives them nuts. Some of them walking around with afros, pssst.... I'm careful who I do it to, though cause my old neighborhood is mafia controlled , lol. You piss off the wrong person, you might end up being cast in concrete

Girl, I ain't claiming them, they racist as fcuk, I grew up around them. I only do it because it pisses them off and I know they can't tolerate the very idea. I know they think of themselves as white and benefit from white privilege.

It's really not that serious to go out of your way to correct somebody for calling you African American...

It really depends in what spirit it is done, his attitude and all. I can usually tell when it's just a means to assert their ancestry as opposed to some confused negro who reflects black in the mirror but think he's white and looks down on AAs and or thinks Africa is something to be ashamed of.

she's also unaware that white people enslaved one another long before they even knew black people were ripe for the picking.

She can claim whatever she wants to be honest.  I have nothing against her as an individual.  I don't see any major loss to the African-American/Black community.
