    Yup. What is a European? An Irishman? German? Scot? Frenchman? Or possibly even a black woman born in England. Oh gasp...

    Probably because the continent of Africa is comprised mostly of black people and their lineage can be traced there? Just a guess. :eusa_eh:

    Everyone's lineage can be traced of Africa.

    Why aren't they Detroit Americans- most of the people who live there are black, too.
