    Asian and Hispanic are 'proper ajectives', because they're based on proper nouns. White and black are not.

    White and black are just skin colors. Although many people don't call someone black just because of their skin color, but if they have recent African descent.

    Like Kyle stated, Asian and Hispanics are proper adjectives. So it would be grammatically correct to capitalize them. It's completely different with "white" and "black".

    How does that work? My great-grandmother was black, but you certainly wouldn't consider me black if you saw me walking by or something. My skin's white, therefore I'm white.

    I'm not quite sure how that works.

    There was a discussion brought up. And someone said something about Aboriginals. Then a black nationalist said that he didn't consider Aboriginals black because they aren't of recent African descent.

    One thing I've never quite understood is race nationalism. 'Oh, some guy with the same skin tone as me achieved that, therefore I'm a better person!'

    It's inane, and insane.

    This is like pan-Arabism, the idea that all Arabs should live together in one big nation, regardless of religion. I have to say, pan-Arabism sounded like a damn good idea at first, if only because Christian Arabs and Muslim Arabs fight too much.

    Oh, and off topic, but black women are the most attractive. My girlfriend's stunning.

    Simon Cowell, what a dick.

    This is pointless when everyone generally agrees on the topic at hand.

I find it very stupid and so do all my black friends.

    They also call white people who disagree with their views "The white devil". They also filter words that are offensive to the black race and not the ones that are offensive to the white race. They think white people are inferior. They also capitalize the words "black" and "white". It's really stupid, if you ask me.

    What are your thoughts?

    I don't think there's anyone here who agrees with black nationalism. So perhaps there won't be any debate here.

    It's a forum topic, you just share your thoughts and opinions.


    LOL.
    Yes, it's quite laughable.
