So you base it on African? why have you chosen to use the word 'African' to represent your ethnicity?

Yes, I understand that, I meant calling yourself African. Would you say East and West Africans consider themselves to be the same? what are you basing African on? culture? Land?

Understand what the word 'race' means before you wish to use the word racial when describing ethnicity. Thank you. There is only one race.

But we would find something else to discriminate on. /These topics are crap, if they actually produced good debate and talking points it would be fine, but we have too many trolls.

They are only crap topics because people are uneager to use their intellect and discuss the conflicting attitudes to ethnicity.It's like people want to come on here and post a picture up of a random sket and then 20 pages people are going "yeah, I'd hit that".. This has potential to go deep and we could all pick something up from these sorts of topics so that they wouldn't have to keep reapearing. A'LIE?

Just something for sociology I am doing. Just really wanna know how people generally see themselves and others in ethnic terms and what constitutes the reasoning as to why.

i usually put white/other or white irish. lol theres not always a category for my ethnicitybut Ashmn these topics are a bit pointless. Theres too much white guilt on here for serious discussions. people like 'Steven' going on bout how he hates being english and consequently getting co-signed by 95% of the forum. its too bate

Youre a racialist you are. If you think there is only one race why are you making a topic about ethnicity which will only highlight differences between us and cause divisions?
