Lol, even though there are massive outliers among AAs, they still do have a common look. I think VixR means she doesn't look like their average.

To be honest, they both look New World Black. Just one is more European than the other.

Most definitely.

"The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment."

I was referring to "I don't look the black" part.
Are you saying all Somalis look Black? :browtf:

American standards of what is black are extremely loose. Even darkish Arabs and North Africans can be lumped into it at times.
That’s an extreme exaggeration. Not true. They’re brown at best.

I definitely think many Somalis due to either some features, like lips, and or Afro hair, or dark skin can easily look Black. But there’s people who don’t have any of that going for them in my fam.

Nope.

No one would here would organically consider him black on the fly, unless he took the identity upon himself (was raised and/or self-identified).

Even the morphologically ''Caucasoid'' ones still got dark skin (by white people standards) and when people find out that they/you are from Africa you'd get labeled as black by many.

Ultimately, it depends on (1) what you look like (2) how you identify. Noah looks clearly black. The other doesn’t. Noah can’t choose, the Player can lol.

I once heard a Nigerian say. I am not black, I am Nigerian. :lol: Black sometimes may also just mean African-American ados in certain contexts.

true, they didn't really have those terms as an identity in Africa, even white would seem like an American thing since American whites most of the times don't know where they came from, id expect europeans to claim Swedish or Irish or slavic instead of white until the Americas brought its race dynamics worldwide

He’s saying it in the same sense some Somalis say they aren’t black, despite having certain features like dark skin. However, Nigerians have more or less the same features of a typical AA.
