I was actually asking what people thought of the use of the words, black and, "black" and what those words mean to them, generally speaking, and regardless of their race (btw, I see no reason why you can't honestly say what those words mean to you just because you're white--I'm white, too, and I'm curious).

I appreciate your input.
