Yes Kerry, the world is coming to an end, all because someone said the Vikings were historical and no longer in existance. Eric the Red is coming back with a band of Vikings and obliterating the world, or at least Tomahawk.Originally posted by Kerry Tobin:

No I haven't but thanks for the site. I think I shall visit it with my grandson. He really likes that period of time. I have seen various Viking relics in Ireland.Originally posted by aphephilia:
Have you ever been here Nell?
Aphephilia is absolutely right. I have several patients who have black skin and are from Africa but they are not black or African American. They are caucasian. They are from Ethiopia but way back when the Vikings ruled they had migrated to Africa from the Caucasus region of Europe. They are insulted when they are referred to as blacks or African American. There has been a lot of news stories locally about this issue. African Americans are those people whose ancestors came here as slaves. Recent African immigrants do not want to be called African American. We call people from Somali Somalis, those from Nigeria Nigerians, etc. That is their preference.Many people assume my younger son is African American, he is not, he is Afro Colombian.Originally posted by aphephilia:
Rayne, it may surprise you to know that all "African Americans" are "black" but not all "blacks" are "African Americans". So why would we call them all "African Americans"?
