A good first step would be

I seriously doubt that there were any true "African Americans" in the gathering on Monday. Of those individuals I know and saw in the photos, not one of them was born in Africa, yet those of color persist in clinging to a false identity. A good first step to reaching full equality would be to identify and accept themselves as Americans, or if they choose, Black Americans. Those who pathetically cling to ancestral beginnings and thinking will never achieve equality nor will they ever progress.
