    What about the Easter Bunny? All the ones I saw as a kid were white.

    When you unwrap the foil you see realize the Easter Bunny is chocolate.

    'cause if any of us saw a black guy with a sack on our roof in the middle of the night.........

    and even if we did not shoot him off of the roof,
    once he goes "Hoe, Hoe, Hoe" the vice cops will cuff and stuff him for pimpin'

I can understand some of the original articles point. African-Americans are in a challenging position. They live in a European based world but want to have there own identity. It kind of sucks to have all these characters both real like the Savor and imaginary like Santa, and historical like George Washington that are big parts of our combined culture being white. They just want there own piece of our combind culture.
    Well George Washington was white. He of the 3 is the only one that we have true pictures of. I tried as a kid to get a pic pf Jolly Old Saint Nick but failed.

    Why are they "African American" to begin with? I know one person who is by my definition African American, his skin color is white. He was born in South Africa and is now an American Citizen.
    Born in the US you are American or get the heck out!

    Really? Do you refer to him as such in his presence without conveying irony or humour?

    A big man never looks down on others.... instead, he is someone to look up to.
