What difference does it make where she was born?  She either has African roots or she doesn't.

 

Also, South Africa was colonized by the British in the early part of the 19th century and whites now make up roughly 20% of the population.

This is the shit that makes the VS. forum not even worth posting in anymore, let alone even taking the time to read anything in it...

I don't know whether to be offended or not. I wasn't born in Africa, but generally African American is the choice that I pick, because black is usually not a choice.

 

I'm really not sure exactly what the question you are asking is.

University email systems have a filter for grammatical terrorism.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
