Americans of African Descent: Names and Identities
by Anne Crémieux

"African", "Colored", "Negro", "Black", "Afro-American", "African American", ...
The terms used to refer to Black Americans change with time, because times change and words have to change along with them. Brought over from Africa to serve as slaves, Blacks eventually found freedom eventually came but not equality. Treated as second-class citizens, Blacks were finally granted equal rights but not equal privileges, and the search for a common term - a name they can use to describe themselves - continues today, raising important questions: Who chooses the names? What meanings do they carry? What is the historical progression that they reflect? What does the difficulty of finding and keeping a name reveal? Certainly it's more than just a linguistic debate; but maybe less than the passionate reactions it spurs. The changes in the names "Black Americans" wish to be called express a complex search for a cultural and racial identity.

During slavery, Blacks arriving from Africa naturally chose to call themselves "Africans", whereas colonists often used the adjectives "slave" or "free", or else the Portuguese word "negro". The term "African" can still be found in the names of religious congregations such as the "First African Baptist Church", the "African Episcopal Church" or the "African Masonic Lodge" ... However Blacks soon lost touch with the traditions of their homeland as a result of a policy that often separated children from their families at birth. Furthermore, their exposure to racist representations that portrayed Africans as heathen, ape-like savages running naked in the jungle soon led Blacks to reject a term whose negative connotations when used by Whites became obvious. Hence African fell into disuse. With the end of the slave trade - which remained intense until 1833 despite its abolition in 1807 - the absence of massive new arrivals rendered the term obsolete. African became an insult. The 1991 film "Boyz 'N The Hood" illustrates the harsh consequences awaiting those who use it when ten-year-old Tre gets into a fight for telling his classmate they are both Africans, and is suspended from school.

While "negro" was used by all, the word "Colored" (often spelled "Coloured") soon became prevalent in the Black community. Miscegenation was common, which resulted in a wider spectrum of skin complexion. White men had full power over their slaves and rapes often occurred; impregnating female slaves was one way of increasing a precious commodity, among other things. Widely used until the beginning of the 20th century, the term "Colored" allowed America, a slave society that would later become an institutionally racist nation-state, to create a category encompassing all non-Whites. "Colored" could include "Blacks", "Native Americans", "Mexicans" in the Southwest, and later "Asians" and "Latinos", though it referred primarily to Blacks as the name of the largest Black political association, the National Association for the "Advancement of Colored People" founded in 1909, still attests. This is, however, probably the only context in which the use of the word is appropriate today. In the Sixties Colored took on racist connotations, and Colored boy was the insult that tipped off Sidney Poitier in They Call Me MISTER Tibbs! (1970).
...
The 1970s and 1980s gave birth to the many hyphenated terms that describe modern America's ethnic minorities ("Irish-Americans", "Italian-Americans", "Hispanic-Americans", "Asian-Americans", etc.). Words such as "Eurasian" or "Afroeuropean" had long been used by anthropologists. The Black community chose "Afro-American", which had been used in writing since the beginning of the century. In an attempt to put the two components of the term on equal footing, "Afro-American" gave way to "African-American" and later "African American". The hyphen was deleted as it implied the idea of a sub-category. Other suggestions did not catch on, such as "AfriAmerican", "AfraAmerican", "Afrikan" or even more creative inventions such as "Afrindeur American" (short for "African-Indian-European" in reference to the multiracial origins of most Black Americans) or "Dobanian" (short for "Descendant of Black African Natives in the American North"), which found few supporters. "African American" did not gain acceptance without arousing debates, even if these disputes aroused less passion than those surrounding the change from Colored and Negro to Black. African Americans were quick to adopt the term. Problems arose with the 1990 census since many Blacks did not identify as black and added African American as a category instead. Jesse Jackson defended the new term, which he used and explained at a press conference in December 1988: compared to Black, African American expresses a sense of belonging to a culture and, more important, creates a bridge with the African continent. It evokes slavery and acculturation while claiming an African heritage. African American emphasizes an African Diaspora rather than an American minority. Roughly ten years after the new name was first promoted, it is now accepted and used by all. Africa is once again part of the name of Black Americans, as if the quest for identity had ended where it began. Returning to cultural origins that should never have been renounced, Black Americans have come full circle.
...
Because biracial remains vague, some prefer to use terms such as "AfroAsian", "AfroEuropean", "EuroAsian", "AfroHispanic", "African Latino", etc. But what about a child whose four grandparents are Black, Asian, White and Hispanic? An easy way out is to use the term "multiracial", which like "multicultural" recently came into vogue. Yet, who in America cannot be said to be multiracial? Don't the terms used to describe Blacks refer to a culture, after all, rather than a race?
...
"bell hooks" (who does not capitalize her name) is a particularly accessible critic of popular culture. In her many books, she identifies herself as an "Afrofemcentric" - that is, "afrocentrist and feminist". Michele Wallace, working on similar issues, calls herself an "Afrofemlezcentrist", meaning an "afrocentrist, a feminist and a lesbian" (referring to her sexuality but more important, to lesbian culture). The late Black poet Essex Hemphill spoke openly of his homosexuality before the term "afroqueercentric" was coined. Will these words influence the way we speak of ourselves?

The name given to this unique species, endemic only to South Africa and Swaziland, is called the "Bella Donna Oprah", which means "beautiful lady" in Italian.

Cultivated by Bertie Guillaume from Makhado (previously Louis Trichardt) in the Limpopo Province, the "Bella Donna Clivia" was chosen by a panel of judges consisting of the Oprah magazine team and the Clivia Society."

'bogart' actually appears in 1968. The song "Don't Bogart Me" by Elliot Ingber and Larry Wagner appears on Fraternity Of Man's eponymous album, released 24 June 1968 by ABC Records. The song was later covered by the band Little Feat under the title "Don't Bogart That Joint." Also, my understanding (never having seen the movie) is that the word's appearance in "Easy Rider" is actually in the song, which is playing in one of the scenes. The song also appears on the movie's soundtrack.

Colt, Samuel (1814-1862), patentierte eine Revolver-Pistole von der die US-Regierung 1847 im Mexikanischen Krieg 1.000 Stück orderte. Dieser Revolver wurde so populär, dass 'Colt' auch allgemein für Revolver benutzt wird.

"His revolving-breech pistol became so popular that the word Colt was sometimes used as a generic term for the revolver."
Der Begriff 'Colt' steht damit in einer Reihe mit 'Uhu' und 'Tempo'.

Eleanor Frances - Rose

Die Rose konnte der amerikanischen Schriftstellerin "Eleanor Frances Lattimore" gewidmet sein. Passen würden die Nationalität des Züchters und der Schriftstellerin und Lebensdaten und Züchtungsdatum.

Falls diese Vermutung falsch ist, hier wenigstens die Herkunft von "Eleanor".

Engl. "Eleanor" (auch "Eleanora", "Elenora", "Eleanor", "Elinor"), dt. "Eleonore", frz. "Éléonore", ital. "Eleonora", geht auf einen weiblichen Vornamen altprovenzal. "Aliénor" zurück. Die weitere herkunft ist ungewiss. der name könnte jedoch auf einem german. "*alja-" = dt. "anders", "fremd" basieren. Eleonore bzw. Alienor von Aquitanien brachte den Namen im 12./13. Jh. nach England, heiratete König Heinrich II. von England und wurde Mutter von König Richard Löwenherz. In Deutschland findet man den Namen seit dem 15. Jh. als "Leonore".

(E?)(L?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Neale

Father "Francis Ignatius Neale", S.J., (died 1837) was an American Roman Catholic priest of the Jesuit Order who became President of Georgetown College on two occasions and who was a leader of the Jesuit Mission in America. He was born in the Catholic colony of Maryland to a prominent family, descended from Captain James Neale, who had settled in the colony in 1642 with a royal grant of land of two thousand acres. The family traced its origins to the noble O'Neill family of Ireland, from whom came the kings of Ulster. Among his direct descendants were Oswald Neale (grandfather to Francis) and his brother, Father Bennett Neale, S.J., one of the first Jesuits in the English colony.

gerrymander

(E?)(L?) http://www.yourDictionary.com/


(E?)(L?) http://www.fraudfactor.com/ffgerrymander.html
(Verb), Pronunciation: ['je-ri-mæn-dêr]
Definition 1: To divide a political territory into districts such that each contains a large concentration of voters for the current majority party and a small concentration of voters for the minority party.
Etymology: In 1812, the US painter, Gilbert Stuart, noticed on a map in a newspaper office, a voting district that had been created by the Democratically dominated Massachusetts assembly during the governorship of Elbridge Gerry ['geri, not 'jeri]. The district had been carved in a most peculiar manner in order to assure that the results of any election in that district would favor the Democrats. Stuart immediately drew eyes, claws, and wings on the outline of the district because it looked like a salamander (a drawing that later became a very famous political cartoon which you can now see at "www.fraudfactor.com/ffgerrymander.html". Someone in the office watched him and called it a 'gerrymander' ['ge-ri-mæn-dêr]. Within a year the noun was being used as the verb it is today. Stuart was the leading portrait artist of his day. He painted the best known portraits of the first six US presidents, including Washington, Jefferson, and Adams.

hooker (W2)

ist amerikanischer Slang für "Hure". Diese Bezeichnung stammt aus dem US-Bürgerkrieg als Spitzname für die "Begleitung" des Heeres von General Joseph Hooker.
"hooker" = "a prostitute" = "Nutte", "Prostituierte" - An American Civil War general known as "Joseph Hooker" provides the origin of the word "hooker", a colloquial term for "prostitute". Hooker commanded the Army of the Potomac for five months in 1863. His men were drunken and disorderly and given to womanizing. Charles Francis Adams, Jr., grandson of John Quincy Adams, said Hooker's headquarters was: "a place where no self-respecting man liked to go, and no decent woman could go. It was a combination of barroom and brothel". - Some years ago a book with the title "The Happy Hooker: My Own Story" by Xaviera Hollander became a best seller in English speaking countries.

Den Vereinigten Staaten war jedoch an einem wirtschaftlich starken und politisch stabilen Europa als Handelspartner gelegen. Am 05.06.1947 legte der US-Außenminister und spätere Friedensnobelpreisträger "George C. Marshall" in einer Rede an der Harvard University den Grundstein für das Europäische Wiederaufbauprogramm (European Recovery Program - ERP).

Monroe-Doktrin, Monrovia (W3)

Natürlich ist man geneigt zunächst an Marilyn zu denken. Aber der Namensgeber dieser Doktrin ist 'James Monroe', der Präsident der USA (1817-1825). Dieser definierte den gesamten amerikanischen Kontinent als Interessensphäre der USA. Ursprünglich ging es dabei weniger um die Übermacht der Amerikaner auf dem amerikanischen Kontinent, sondern vor allem darum der Kolonisation durch europäische Mächte ein Ende zu bereiten. Im Gegenzug sollte sich die USA nicht in Angelegenheiten Europas einmischen.

Nach 'Monroe' wurde auch die Hauptstadt Liberias 'Monrovia' benannt. (s. 'Monrovia')

Oprahfication (W3)

"Oprahization" (1994), auch als einfacher auszusprechende Variante "Oprahzation" und "Oprahfication" (1993), bezeichnet die schonungslose Ausbreitung privater Angelegenheiten und Gefühle vor Publikum.

Die Bezeichnung "Oprahization" wurde zum Vornamen von "Oprah Winfrey", einer der bekanntesten Talkmasterinnen (ab 1985, "Oprah Winfrey Show") in den USA, gebildet. Der früheste Nachweis ist in den Denver Rocky Mountain News, vom 16. Januar 1994 dokumentiert: "The Oprahization of our culture - the astonishing propensity to tell all, even the most sacred, private things to an audience of strangers - has fueled the Bobbitt case. (Molly Mayfield, "The Bobbitt tragicomedy").

Today, the Prize ensures that quality newspapers of all sizes and circulations will receive praise from circles within, as well as outside, the writing profession.

She is also known as Maureen Crane Wartski (her real name), Evelyn Shannon, Francine Shore, Cynthia Sinclair, and Rebecca Ward.

sideburns
die Koteletten

hair growing on the side of the face in front of the ears (pronunciation: SYDE-bernz)

'Sideburns' started out as a name, but then people added a letter. Then they mixed-up the letters in the name to make a whole new word.

Ambrose Everett Burnside, a Union general during the U.S. Civil War, was a public figure well-known for the long bushy whiskers he wore down the sides of his face. Other men liked the look and began growing similar whiskers themselves. Such whiskers, which became the height of fashion in the U.S. in the 19th century, were originally called 'burnsides' after the general. By the late 1880s, though, someone rearranged the letters of 'burnsides' to turn it into 'sideburns' instead, and that new name stuck. (source: Merriam Webster)

bezeichnet die Prinzipien einer (wissenschaftlichen) Betriebsführung, die auf den Ingenieur Frederick Winslow TAYLOR (1856-1915) zurückgeführt werden. Dazu gehören die systematische Durchführung von Zeit- und Bewegungsstudien zur Ermittlung von Planvorgaben (z.B. für Akkordlohn) und zur optimalen Standardisierung von Arbeitsabläufen, eine möglichst weitgehende betriebliche Arbeitsteilung mit dem Ziel der Minimierung des Arbeitsinputs, der erforderlichen Qualifikationen und der Lohnkosten, die Trennung von Planung, Entscheidung und Ausführung sowie der zentralen Kontrolle der Arbeitsprozesse durch das Management und der direkten Kontrolle durch den Vorgesetzten."

The real McCoy (W3)

(E?)(L?) http://www.owad.de/check.php4?id=1490&choice=1&sid=1118209
Dieser Ausdruck entspricht dem dt. "der wahre Jakob". Er soll zurückgehen auf den amerikanischen Boxer mit dem Künstlernamen "Kid McCoy". - Aber nur einer ist "The real McCoy".
Allerdings findet man auch Hinweise auf mögliche andere Ursprünge des Ausdrucks.


One night a drunk man in a bar loudly insisted to the boxer Kid McCoy that he was not in fact the famous boxer. McCoy, by way of proof, knocked the man to the ground.
"It's the real McCoy," the man then remarked, struggling to his feet - and thereby giving birth to a common expression in the English language.
McCoy, Kid - born Norman Selby - (1872-1940) American boxer, welterweight world champion (1898)

Origin: There is general agreement this phrase comes from the name of the American boxer Norman Selby, known as Kid McCoy, who was welterweight champion from 1898-1900.

Who2 is a question, like a cabbie's "Where to?" We mean to be the Web's most direct guide to facts about famous people.

For each famous figure, Who2 gives you the hard facts you're most likely looking for: birth and death dates, famous works, notorious trivia. Then - in case that's not enough - we sift the Web and pick out the four best sites for additional detail.

Classic authors, movie stars, famous frauds, kings and queens, mythical gods, cartoon dogs: anyone famous is fair game for Who2. Some of the personalities may be frivolous, but our information never is: you can count on the facts you find on Who2. We do our best to feature only links which are equally dependable.

The links are chosen by our editors on a case-by-case basis. Who2 accepts no responsibility, legal or otherwise, for the sites to which we link. We strive to include only family-friendly links, but of course on the wild Web there can be no guarantees.

No helpful gardening tips to be found; instead, the authors provide plenty of arcane facts and tantalizing revelation in an equally entertaining and educational foray into the competitive, complicated, and frequently comical world of rose naming.

Kurzbeschreibung

How did the Texas cattle rancher Samuel A. Maverick end up contributing his name to the language? What is the connection between a rather unflattering item of clothing and the French trapeze artist Jules Leotard? Which filling did the Earl of Sandwich opt for when he made his great culinary invention? And was there really a Sir Oswald Binge whose week-long feasts were notorious for their excess? "The Reverend Guppy's Aquarium" answers these and many other questions drawn from the remoter corners of the English language, exploring the lives of an extraordinarily diverse range of people who happen to have one thing in common: by chance or deliberately, they have left their names deeply embedded in the language and consciousness of future generations. Each figure has something to tell us about a particular moment of history, or a discovery or invention, whether it's Laszlo Biro and his pioneering writing implement, or Mercedes Jellinek, who lent her name to a certain make of car, or Etienne de Silhouette who, having fallen from grace at the French court, spent much of the later part of his life mournfully cutting out paper shapes. Not to mention the Reverend Robert Lechmere Guppy, fish-discoverer extraordinary. Each life in "The Reverend Guppy's Aquarium" is quirky and often bizarre. Few of them would merit a footnote, let alone an entry, in the history books. But they all reveal that the prospect of immortality is only a fluke away. In an age of instant 15-minute celebrity, that's a reassuring thought.

Kurzbeschreibung
What’s in a name? For Philip Dodd, this question led to an international hunt for the best stories of eponymous heroes - an extraordinarily diverse group of people with just one thing in common: by chance or deliberately, they have left their names deeply embedded in the language and consciousness of future generations.

A few, such as instrument-maker Adolphe Sax, set out to achieve immortality. A handful – Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, for example – positively shunned the prospect. But the majority, like Joseph P. Frisbie or Ernst Gräfenberg (the G in G-spot), simply had no idea that some strange quirk of their lives, work, or personalities would catapult them to fame, or that one day their family name would become a household word.

Tracing their varied paths to glory has taken Philip Dodd on a worldwide quest. He has voyaged to the desolate Matagorda peninsula on the Gulf Coast of Texas to find out the truth about the notorious cattle rancher Samuel Maverick. He has been to Happy Valley, California, to find Roy Jacuzzi, alive and well and still bubbling with ideas. He has followed the story of Joseph P. Frisbie from a former pie factory in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to the headquarters of Wham-O, trying the fledgling sport of ‘Frisbie golf’ and taking home a rather strange and macabre memento… And, of course, he has ventured to the St Ann’s River in Trinidad to see for himself the spot where Robert Lechmere Guppy, naturalist extraordinaire, first collected a certain small freshwater fish. His discoveries breathe life back into words that we too readily take for granted.

Über den Autor
Philip Dodd developed a love of words and language as the son of dedicated crossword solvers, while studying French and Spanish at Jesus College, Oxford, and in a career as a book publisher and editor. His books include The Book Of Cities (Pavilion, with Ben Donald), a tour d’horizon of the world’s most intriguing metropolises, and Musical Instruments (HarperCollins), one of the Collins Gem series. He has also worked with the Rolling Stones, interviewing them for their 2003 autobiography According To The Rolling Stones, and with Nick Mason on his memoir Inside Out: A Personal History Of Pink Floyd, and he is the editor of Genesis: Chapter & Verse.

Synopsis
How did Texas cattle rancher Samuel Maverick become the byword for quirky non-conformity? What is the connection between a rather unflattering item of clothing and French trapeze virtuoso Jules Leotard? Which filling did the 4th Earl of Sandwich opt for when he made his great culinary invention? And was there really a country squire called Sir Oswald Binge whose week-long feasts were notorious for their excess? A dip into "The Reverend Guppy's Aquarium" will answer these and many other questions you forgot to ask about the heroic individuals who made our language what it is.
