Weve since moved on to calling them blacks, but what did you guys call them back then? Also, what about an africian american going to the UK during that time? Also, what do you call them now?

Black British.

And yeah, souLLy's right. Go the wrong place in London and it's just another black ghetto full of poverty, drugs "urban music" and guns.

Fuck urban music. I did a power hour to urban music and I could rarely tell when the song had chagned.

Power hour? Bump that up 40 minutes for a solid hundred. We call that the Century Club.

Did you do shots of beer? That's what we typically do. You can make it more fun with a double shot glass. It's common for people to start dropping out around the hour mark anyway. I'd recommend going for a 100 if 60 doesn't do.

Yeah, just shots of beer. A double may actually make it worthy of being called a power hour.

They call African Americans in Britain the same thing they call White Americans: Americans.


Now, if you're trying to find out what they call British men of African descent, I suggest rewording your question.

Personally, I call all mine numbers. I find the lack of personal identity dehumanizes them and makes them more efficient workers.
