Posted on 05/13/2009 9:42:06 PM PDT by Westlander
Born and raised in Mozambique and now a naturalized U.S. citizen, Serodio, 45, has filed a lawsuit against a New Jersey medical school, claiming he was harassed and ultimately suspended for identifying himself during a class cultural exercise as a "white African-American."

Racism is racism.
Just too funny!! Reminds me of Theresa Heinz Kerry, the other white African American.
Poor guy most likely said it innocently and honestly, too. Just didn’t know about the race Gestapo keeping an eye out for people like him.
I see a lot of headlines here at FR but that might be one of the funniest.
What the hell is that?
When the left doesn’t like your thinking they don’t celebrate diversity, they try to bully you into silence.
> After Serodio labeled himself as a white African-American,
> another student said she was offended by his comments and
> that, because of his white skin, was not an African-American.
Does that mean blacks aren’t American?
On the other side of the coin I recently heard a black Nigerian who has never left Africa be referred to as “African-American”. When it comes to the nonsense of PC and conventional wisdom it’s better to laugh than cry.
Reminds me of the young black school girl who gave a speech about "Malcolm the Tenth".... Ask any of these racist morons to take an educated guess at what percentage of the population of South Africa is "African-American" and get ready to explode in laughter.
He just hasn’t gotten here YET.
Africa is a place, not a race.
Free health care is a fundamental right. Then there's free love, free choice, free association, free press. But... not... free thought or expression...
He blew it. If he/she were a transsexual, this would be a slam dunk case.
He is more African-American than 99% of American blacks (how many were born and raised in Africa?)
This is malignant Political Correctness run amok. I hope when the flesh eating lawyers are done, he owns the med school.
You can bet hate crimes won’t apply to him no matter how many times his tires are slashed.
I wish I had that much hair....:O(
So does he. He’s been bald a long time. Phil Spector has a huge collection of wigs (though I doubt he’ll be getting to carry them to prison).
Now thats funny........chuckles to you..
When hyphenated labels started popping up like weeds, I knew then that it was a stupid, pointless exercise. I guess some people just can’t be happy with being an “American”.
Take a genetics class in any USA medical school.
You will be instructed that the mitochondrial DNA of every American can be traced to Africa.
That's what a medical school gets for conducting a cultural exercise.
Looks like a misapplication of at least 440 volts to me....
I remain a Scotsman.
I read a newspaper article which described a British subject, a resident of Jamaica, as an “African American”. I also have in my possession a hardbound book, written by a college professor and published by a University press, which contains the sentence : “He [Richard Wright, the famous author] felt pride when he learned that the ancient Egyptians were African American”. Just mull over that sentence for awhile...
