Because Black is a racial ID and white is just a description. Caucasion is a racial ID."The opinion around here..." Whose opinion is that? Certainly not mine.
BTW, why do you always uppercase Black and lowercase white? In journalism, we call that a style inconsistency. What do you call it?
What does that have to do with anything?Theresa Heinz Kerry is an African American who is the wife of Sen. John Kerry who ran for president. She was born in Africa.
And then you have people born in Egypt living in the U.S. as U.S citizens are African Americans. People born in South Africa who were the white farmers there moved to the U.S are African Americans. Heck, anybody born in Africa and becomes a U.S. citizen is technically an African American.
Black isn't a color. It is the absence of light. Gotta have light to make a color. But we aren't talking about a color wheel. We are talking about people and their racial ID.Oh, so you refute the fact that black, yellow and red are colors?
What about green?
