A second difference would be the labeling between African American and black. The term “Black” is not perfect but of labels but has improved greatly throughout time. A third difference would be the heritage between African American and Black as well. African American is not a term that should be used because it is not a fair label to people that has a heritage in America but a true heritage in Africa as well. I would hope adults of color would realize, Black can be used without insult to the true African Americans that come to this country as immigrant.
A discussion of healthcare reform for African Americans from birth to death must include the issues surrounding the of the Affordable Care Act and Medicare. A thorough discussion of healthcare reform requires an analysis of the history of American healthcare, the current state of the American Healthcare system, and the budgetary projections for American healthcare.

Although Albert Raboteau was not necessarily a theologian, his claims of slaves finding their own way of life despite being dehumanized, easily relate to the ideas of Cone and Wilmore. The arguments and ideas that Cone, Wilmore, and Raboteau put forward make me wonder about what it means to be black in America. I believe that the battle for culture and identity is at stake for African-Americans; from past to present. However, I will show how the ideas and claims of James Cone, Gayraud Wilmore, and Albert Raboteau make way for the African-American race. African American religious culture is a distinct custom in America.
This story is the explanation of many not easily described discrepancies between African Americans and White Americans. It conveys the meaning of many black ways and reasoning. African Americans were obviously always a race of sophistication but in its own ways. They were stomped down by the struggles of slavery and their identity being taken away to create what many other races would label as ignorance. The irrelevance of African culture in the Americas took away majority of the strong cultures sense of life.

Does the African American definition of family differ from that of the dominant culture? How has ecological systems influenced past and present trends in African American families? These questions and more are examined in this paper. According to the article African American Marriage Patterns, The most broadly accepted explanations for marital breakdown are essentially race-blind: greater acceptance of nonmarital sex and unwed parenthood so that young people feel less need to marry, widespread affluence so that it is easier to leave an unhappy marriage, less emotional and economic gain from marriage so that there is less reason to get married, and welfare’s marriage penalties that discourage low-income couples from marrying. (Besharov & West) With these issues affecting American families on a broad perspective the question rises, why are African American families more greatly affected?
