"African American"


I think using the term black, or something else, in the bio would be better than African American, because one of the quotes from his interviews I added was him saying "Don't call me African American; I am a citizen of the United States of America. That's the designation that I want everybody to reach." I used black initially but someone changed it to match wikipedia. I think it would be more respectful to find a way to honor what he said ~ A23423413 (talk) 17:30, 7 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
