I’m just saying that “African” was more acceptable to White people than “Negro” was...
No, it wasn’t. 1961. Negro was the correct term. Still is for languages influenced by Latin.
You seem stuck in the post-1970s concepts of political correctness with your statement.
Until I am shown otherwise, the 2007 BC is a fake pounded out by a 20-to-30-something who didn’t know the proper nomenclature. The only “otherwise” is another pre-1964 Hawaiian birth certificate with “African” as a racial designation on it.
