Personally, I don't give a rip about color; as it pertains to racial issues. Black, white, brown, purple or plaid don't mean nuthin' to me. The heart and mind of a man (or woman) is what matters.

But this whole Political Correctness thing within Hollywood baffles me. I'm working on a screenplay in which the only true 'hero' of the film is a black man. Yet calling him a black man seems, to many, wrong. 'African American' is the term folks want.

I call BS. This man in my screenplay has NOTHING to do with Africa. He is a man, he is black, he is an American and he is damn good at what he does. Is it wrong to simply call an American man who is also black (as opposed to white) black? What say you?
