You seem to be confused about an obvious difference between race and nationality. Europeans, based on skin color, usually consider four races: black, red, white and yellow. Obviously, such a division would probably cause some confusion across the pond as many people of Asian or native American ethnicity could consider it racist to be called respectively "yellow" and "red". But it seems to be working over here and nobody feels hurt about being called "black", "yellow" or "white", especially that it doesn't collide with nationality, which means someone can be black French, yellow Russian or white Spanish. But, I understand where you come from, I remember watching an Aries Spears show a while ago and I recall I was a little confused about him making a joke that African people hate black people which sounds unlogical as the majority of African people are black themselves. On the other hand if you asked an average Spanish guy if he was of Hispanic race he wouldn't understand what the hell are you talking about, because he's white.

its as bad as calling some one colored
people arent a color
as a columbia graduate in the field of social work it was hammered into our mindsets to not think of a person as a color, but instead view them as a person from an area on earth. A hatian person is a far cry from an african person and we discriminate harshly but considering both of them the same because they are labeled as ( black )
you are going to use the sick reference of yellow to describe what an asian person ? meanwhile china, korea and japan are as different as saudi arabians, isrealis and canadians.
All white team
All Black team
all whatever team
there is no white there is no black.
my complexion is white, I Was adopted by an italian mother and german father, I am spanish.
I would never consider myself a white person though and if some one said i was white, I would say umm no i am spanish.
I know alotta older white dudes that say they stopped watching basketball after the Celtics got old (from the 80's). Perhaps they will now come back as Wolves fans....
LOL fact...all these people now watch college ball.
