Thanks for responding so quickly and for the clarification. I did misunderstand that you don’t like the term African-American.

Don’t worry, I would never call a black person white or v.a.v.; well not unless they wanted me to at least. It has never happened to me and I never met Rachael Dolezal, thankfully.

I’m not angry, just vexed by your arguments. I hope I was clear on those points.

And, I appreciate that your response starts with “I define” not the usual “X is defined as Y” when there is no consensus. Maybe English will come around to your way of thinking. I certainly hope not, though. Especially the part about African-American meaning lazy.
