AA: You also don't see how your willingness to give up on being
"Sudanese-American" so easily will hurt the RESPECT people have for
anything African!

My respond: There was no where in my post that I said anything about giving up on being "Sudanese American".

I was addressing that there is no selection of Sudanese American on the "ethnicity checkmarks" on all American applications.. which I find wrong that there is no standards for these people. So basically, Africans and black Americans all blend into one American race according to the race standards. They classify them as "all black Americans" and biracials too are "all black Americans".

But hey, I'm very proud to be Sudanese American. I will never encourage erasing that name. There is no place like the Sudan!
