Though you shouldn’t “believe” everything I say, there most certainly is power in words – as well as in thought and speech. I’m not sure what “YOU” mean by “non-blacks,” but it is my position that the phrase “I Am That I Am,” probably does apply to every living soul. I do like the definitions that you came up with on your own though, because you are accurate. Most dictionaries are misleading. Remember, that vowels are removable and interchangeable. Also, know that “I,” “H,” “J,” and “Y” are technically the same letter – just as “L” and “R” are technically the same. I’m not sure what your ethnic background, or geographical location is, but check out this one. I=Indigenous, A=Autochthonous, A=AmErican (ethnicity based on being copper colored AND attached to the lands called The Americas), A=American (Nationality), M=Maure (i.e., Melanin Rich and/or dark complexioned). In other words, IAAAM = Indigenous, Autochthonous, AmErican American, Maure (some prefer Moor, Mauros, Moreno, etc., all of which mean dark complexioned). On a totally different note, to say that one is Moorish American, is to say that one is the proper noun, “American,” with the adjective, “Moorish,” describing what phenotype of American one is.
