      where she graduated as Senior Class

              **************Response:************

              Actually …. it may not be as difficult as may seem at
              first glance … when one takes into account the fact that
              the term "African-American" (AA) is simply one that
              was placed on an `Ethnic' group that was created
              based on a set of "historical experiences"
              --- and is not at all a reference to one's
              "Race" or even one's "Racial"-admixture.

              It is simply the most recent in a series of
              misnomers that have been applied to a very
              specific and unique 'Ethnic' grouping of people.

              Like any other Ethnic group, the people of the AA
              Ethnicity can actually be of any "Racial" categorization
              or "Racial" combinations … as … the definition of an AA is:


                       "a person who is a descendent of the 
                         survivors of the negro Chattel-Slavery 
                        System which existed on the continental 
                        United States -- during the Antebellum 
                        Era and the Reconstruction and Jim Crow 
                        / Segregationist Eras which then followed."

              For a person to be a "full-AA" essentially
              means that "
              both of their parents are
              `descendents of the survivors'
              of the
              System and Eras" that are noted above.

              When people say that they are 100% AA –
              they are not claiming to be mono-racially
              `Black' – nor are they stating that they do
              not have other Ethnicities in their lineage.

              Much like the term `Latino' is a reference
              to a `Cultural' group whose formation
              occurred within a given set of `Locations'
              -- the term AA is a reference to an `Ethnic'
              group whose formation occurred within
              a given set of `Historical Circumstances'.

              The term AA, much like the term `Latino', was
              not originally intended to imply that a person
              was of any particular "race" – but rather, it
              was to introduce the `history and events which
              led to the formation of the people grouping'.

              Unique, and largely MGM-Mixed Race,
              'Ethnic' groups -- like the AAs -- and 'Cultural'
              groups -- like the Latinos -- generally have a
              wide range of Races, Nationalities, etc. found 
              within their ancestral lineages -- which is why
              it's so important to remember that the AA
              'Ethnic' group was founded on  "Historical
              Experience" and the Latino 'Cultural' group
              generally formed around various "Locations".

              More information on this group
              can be found at the following link:
