I think its stupid. Just more of the sympathetic white man with the bend over and take it attitude toward blacks in general.
A word doesn't mean anything until a person gives it credibility. THat is pretty sad that a race who gets their own history month can't be man enough to understand that a coon is a racoon or slang for a good ol' boy in some southern states.
I'm offended by the term African-American! What the hell does that mean? To me it means that blacks want to be an American so that they can take my money in the form of wellfare while putting their supposed homeland first (which by the way 99% of them have never seen and never will).
If you are going to get all the preferencial treatment from a government of a certain natin, you should at least give them credit by recognizing your importance of being a citizen of that nation vs. trying to imply dual citizenship when they have never even been to one of the nations in question!
