OK, Barb. Regarding the African-American topic, I have, as a matter of fact, interviewed several black friends of mine. As it turns out, none of them (and none of their black friends) are African-American. If they must be classified, they prefer Black.
I have invited them to comment on the topic. However, unlike you and I , they are reserving their opinions for more private consumption.
My next post will be on the entirely fabricated etiquette of holiday greetings.
