I've never liked the word black to describe people with dark skin.Those of us with pigment-enriched skin are certainly not black in color.

Why was the term black used to describe people with dark skin? Why not the more accurate brown or chocolate or Ebony?

Was this use of the word black originally intended as a pejorative or as a neutral descriptor?

    pertaining or belonging to any of the various populations characterized by dark skin pigmentation, specifically the dark-skinned peoples of Africa, Oceania, and Australia.

    African American.

1)soiled or stained with dirt:

That shirt was black within an hour.

2)gloomy; pessimistic; dismal:

a black outlook.

3)deliberately; harmful; inexcusable:

a black lie.

4)boding ill; sullen or hostile; threatening:

black words; black looks.

Hay are you still Black?
