...if an Arab, with Egyptian parents, was born in New York City, would that officially make him an African American?



Just wondered....

Funny... I've asked a similar question. I dont think Egyptians are Arabs though. Similar question. If a white couple from South Africa moved to the US and had kids, would their children be African American?

Absolutely. Probably not "PC" but accurate nonetheless.

My cousins mother is Egyptian. He was born in New Jersey. He was able to check off African-American when he was applying for colleges in the states. So yea, I guess you can say that you are.

I always felt slighted that there was never an Italian-American box for me to check. Checking the "caucasion" box with the rest of those pasty white motherfuckers was a periodic reality check for me. I was no better than a Ginger...

For real...my naturally inclined olive complection should be noted on paper. I know that my pigment's ability to walk and run in direct sunlight gives me an advantage over our red headed friends.

I have a dream, that someday I will be able to check a box that recognizes that.

Seemingly ginger hair comes from a mutation of the blonde gene, so does that makes gingers mutants?

And if the answer to the above is yes, then chants such as "ginger hair is unacceptable" may have to stop. We have all seen XMen and know what these mutant ginger fuckers are capable of!

Blonde hair and blue eyes supposedly came from a mutant gene.


So if red heads spawned from that, they're like super mutants.




But like all super hero's, they have weaknesses......they can't fight in the sunlight and smell like cat piss.

Just to clarify guys the correct names for redheads is

Bloodnut or Rusty crutch. If you are stuck then the old standby of red headed cnut works.

Please address them as that in future

Thank you

Actually, here in the states...their proper name is 'Ginger' or 'Fire Crotch'...there are some that walk the streets in broad daylight, and they are known simply as 'day walkers'.

Again, I have no quarrels with them...I just wish to be recognized as being different. I don't think that it's fair to be lumped into as broad a catagory as "caucasion'. Give me and my ability to tan some damn rights!

I prefer use of terms such as fantapants, indicator balls, or just plain old ging.
