First, what crap having an award for only Blacks students. Imagine if we did the George Washington award for only White students? Imagine the outcry. But we have an overt discriminatory award, which is accepted as fine. Second, this award doesn't honor MLK it insults him. He would be embarrassed of this award. "Content of my character not the color of my skin!" MLK is very important to all AMERICANS not just blacks. He would hate this award! Third, a South African is from African no? Technically he is more from Africa, then Blacks who have been Americans for generations. Fourth, can we stop with the subset fucking labels. When someone asks where I am from or what I am, I say America and I'm an American. I never say Russian/Polish or Jewish American. I am sick any tired of labels in America like, African-, Latino-, Mexican-, Polish-, Italian-, German-, Chinese-, Asian-, Israeli-, Arab- etc. American. Your either American or not! If you accept American citizenship, then you should be labeled as an American. You never hear people call themselves a Italian Brit or Italian Canadian. I digress!
