Black Families Hurt by Magazine's War on Conservatives

Unfortunately, whomever started the term "African-American" should be thrashed! Blacks in America are not Africans. They are Americans - just that their ancestors were from Africa. Would it not be ridiculous if we had all these Italian-Americans, German-Americans and on and on? All this does is continue the racism which divides our wonderful country. And, on another note, I saw this quote the other day which is so true: "If blacks had been able to have guns, they never would have been Slaves!"

I think that whoever came up with that silly expression suffered partial strangulation at birth.
If a descendant of people who were brought here from Africa are "African-Americans," I am an "English-Scots-Welsh-American. Also, since I ws born in Tampa, Florida, I am a "Native American."

Dear Ebony,

I do not have high hopes, given the way Ebony treats black non-liberals, that you will review my new book, "Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours." It is, in the end, about the importance of fathers -- and the damage done to a child who grows up without one.

Why do I know you will ignore my book despite its examination of the most important issue facing "black America"? Your magazine treats black conservatives as if they were the enemy, that they bring nothing valid to the discussion.

Ebony magazine, a monthly staple of American black life...
