Until you go back a few thousand generations or so, when it turns out that they were originally African after all!

But it wasnt called Africa then. So none of them were Africans.

I think we can safely consider them African.


And so,by your thinking, we cannot call the people in Northern Africa, Arabs, unless it was called Arabia when those people first migrated back into Africa. Which is something someone will have to check, as I am going to bed...

Trekker Vs. Trekkie isn't so much about labels. I was more curious to determine how many other 1st generation Trek fans were participating in this forum.

Well, me, for one. Where I was in 1968 there were no Trekkies or Trekkers, there was just me; no-one else I knew watched the show. The fact that I liked it added much to my reputation of being stupid in the eyes of others.
