Who says we are all African??

Have you ever wondered why black people are listed as "African American"? Wouldn't the poor classification give one the impression that black people identifying as such are of African descent? Where did this idea come from that all black people should be identified as African American??
"The term African-American has crept steadily into the nation's vocabulary since 1988, when the Rev. Jesse Jackson held a news conference to urge Americans to use it to refer to blacks. "It puts us in our proper historical context," Jackson said then, adding in a recent interview that he still favored the term."





Truth

Although we are mislead into false teachings of people of color, evidence clearly shows that being classified as African American really denies people of color their true heritage and nationality.
