Bluntly spoken, with passion. the man

is right, it is way past time for Americans to get off their ass*s and get Dr. Paul elected. the grassroots is speaking louder and louder.

Anyway--Ron Paul's message is for everyone!

This man has a great way of presenting the truth and urging all of us to do the same. He's great!

An idea whose time has come can not be stopped by any army or government-- Ron Paul 2012

Why do we say African

Why do we say African American? Who made that term up anyway? Some fat white men sitting around drinking beers in the politically correct boardroom? Nevertheless this guy is awesome!

I was just gonna write

I was just gonna write something about that. Its like we are trying too hard to be politically correct. A study actually found that black americans don't care if you call them black or african americans. I can go into a whole long explanation, but I am too tired.

Why not have the title say "Ron Paul supporter says Obama is suckin"!-Get active for Ron Paul."

There is a racial undertone to having to put "African American, like it matters.

I know the poster means well, but I find it a little insulting. The reason is simple. He wouldn't put caucasian American says Obama is suckin"!-Get active for Ron Paul." It again comes down to labeling people....

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

African American

oh come on don't go bashing white folks now ,they call themselves African Americans. i don't understand why they don't just call themselves Americans,never could understand it though, i thought we were all AMERICANS. i think it's just another way our loving government keeps us divided !!

Curious?

So just out of curiosity,What would be the proper way to address the issue of Descent background along with Current status? I would like to be proper in addressing background of heritage.Irish American,Native American,Muslim American,Etc. are not correct?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Why not just say Ron paul

Why not just say Ron paul supporter? Why the label of black, White, African American etc? What difference does it make?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Well "African American" is

Well "African American" is the only description of descent background that uses a continent as the precursor. It implies that all the people from Africa are black, which we all know is not true. If we used African American for every American that ancestry came from there, then it would make more sense to me. It feels like they're really saying "those slaves we got over in Africa that are now Americans"

So what is proper?

I am asking this serious question because it seems that it all depends on what color you are when you say it.I am Native American and would really like to know what would be proper? Or is it all wrong no matter how it is put? Seriously,At what point is this going to come to an end from both sides? Yes, I said both sides.By stating what you stated it appears to be the reverse of the complaint issued. Please do not call me a Native American because it offends me that you are even addressing my heritage. because as you now know I am ashamed of my heritage.

Re: "So what is proper?"

How about calling someone whatever they want to be called? I find it a bit strange how (mostly White) people feel the need to point out when someone of another race agrees with their views. The flip side is "they're" VERY quick to shun another White person who says something that could be taken as bigoted...but also happens to be true. I always thought that was weird, but I suppose it's the result of two generations of Whites being told to feel guilty simply because of their skin tone.

As far as the whole "African-American" thing, it's ridiculous (and inaccurately used) for reasons others have already pointed out. Personally, I've never met a Black person who minded being called Black, nor have I met a White person who minded being called White, and so on. (Which reminds me, the term "Caucasian" is also largely inaccurately used.)

A signature used to be here!

I have no idea.

I remember Russell Means prefers to be called indian. He doesn't like native american either. I remember watching a video on here a while ago of a native born white person from africa coming to america and calling himself african american. Needless to say the politically correct types didn't like that.

When talking about racial issues Dr. Paul uses the term "black" but I think under normal situations he prefers to see people as individuals or americans. What's politically correct always seems to change. Personally, I'm not comfortuble calling people african american or black but that's just me being worried I'll offend someone.

Thank you,I think pride is the difference

"Redskins","Injun","Smelly little boogers", Heathens","Animals" all good and not an issue as pride over rides all of those "Terms",I am proud of what ever term is used to describe my heritage.This is because I am proud of my heritage and the only thing that might hurt my feelings would be to call me a Dog or a Choctaw because they are one and the same.LOL! All the rest are just mans perceptions of something they do not understand,This does not bother me because I consider the source.

It's good to appreciate one's heritage.

I have mostly a mixed european ancestry so no culture really dominates me to a great extent. Biblically, I try to view myself as God views me as a redeemed child of his. That is often difficult but ultimately grounding. I appreciate the good parts of my american heritage of freedom while being aware of it's darker history. I like to think that part of my appreciation of freedom and independence comes from the small trace of "Injun" blood in me. lol! Though to be honest, I was never fully immersed in any one culture other that "Western" culture.

So, I guess I'm not fully able to understand what a person with one heritage(especially one that has been persecuted) goes through.

what did you think of his message?

good right?

An idea whose time has come can not be stopped by any army or government-- Ron Paul 2012

Yes, I think it's a healthy

outlook to take. I think anyone would be upset if they were called a dog let alone have the patience to endure the names ATruepatriot wrote on the first line. It takes a certain calmnes of mind in the heat of the moment to consider the source.

No I meant the video message

Obamas big ace was his race-Education is the key to the Revolution-like the man states.

An idea whose time has come can not be stopped by any army or government-- Ron Paul 2012

Obama's race was

important as far as blacks were concerned, He stressed that Oboma was very low in the polls and the only thing keeping people from voting RP is the media reinforced statement that he cant win. I have to take his word for that in general but I'm not sure if the black community is still holding on to the "black president" thing or not.

He's right about education being the key to the Revolution. Of course, he's talking about getting off the computer and going to talk to groups of people and he is right. He had trouble getting RP supporters to talk to his group. Maybe some of us online prefer individual contact and aren't comfortable talking to groups, I don't know. I'm not sure where he reached out for help. A recent video on 12/6 said that he lost his gathering place and is looking for another location w/ entertainment.(Tucker, GA)

I watched a few other videos of his and he a minister that's trying to help out his community and he's looking for help from the RP Community. I wonder if we have anyone in near Tucker, GA that could help talk to the people he brings together.

Here is a link to a poster of the "Open Mic" event at the old location.

I'm going to check out his channel more later.

I think what is proper is

I think what is proper is what you are comfortable with and what your intention is. My good friend is from Nairobi and black but legally immigrated here 30 years ago. When I met her 25 yrs ago we used to refer to black Africans and black Americans as black. Now she says African American but she is not insulted when I say "black" Are you really ashamed of your heritage? My great great great grandmother was found on the trail of tears and raised by white people. She went to her death bed stating she was a French Canadian descendent. I personally always loved the "Native American" term, but that's just me.

So many Freeman Blacks...

So many freeman blacks were also marched along the trail of tears.Fact is the percentage was about 25. I am just asking at what point are we as loving Americans going to settle on a proper term? Everything has been used up."Black" is no longer an option because it is now offencive.Where, what, when? Is there actually a proper identification that can be agreed on at some point without being taken as offencive? Will the next one be deemed just as offencive and will we have to spend another fifty years to correct it? Can there ever be a term that is agreed upon without claim of racism or deemed as belittling? No, I fear this will go on forever because it is not meant or conceived to ever end by all parties.
