Subject: Re: "Ami"and Cafe Los Negroes
I think this discussion was already on its way to the "beating a dead horse" stage when I came
in, so I'll be brief.
I just had to tell y'all (in the midst of this discussion about terms for social groups, their
acceptability, etc.) that I have just found an internet site for "New York's black and latino
underground on-line" called "Cafe Los Negroes". One thing that caught my attention was that
Yahoo wrote "This site has been optimized for cyber-negroidal viewers".
The page "NEGROFILE" has an essay entitled, "Diary Of A Cybernegro". They also include an icon
called "Afrolinks". The address is http://www.losnegroes.com/index.html.
All this has made me want to reread John Baugh's "The Politicization of Changing Terms of
Self-Reference among American Slave Descendents".
