Please consider this an opportunity to do some diversity training.

In general, would most rather be called "African-American" or "black" when describing race and if so why?. Is there now a perceived negative connotation with "black"? I am primarily descended from Italian and German people yet have no desire to be called Italian-American or German-American.

ab - just wondering
