To me that's one of those non-issues I posted about earlier in the thread. There's a difference between "I'm scared to refer to any racial minority for fear of getting backlash on social media" and "If I make a mistake please tell me because I'm trying to be teachable and I know I still have a lot to learn." The latter opens the conversation up, you can ask why this term or that term, and learn more about a culture you may not be familiar with. Like why someone who's Puerto Rican might make a point of clarifying that along with being Black. Because being a Black person from Detroit is a very different vibe than being a Black person from Puerto Rico. Though both are technically also "American." BTW, even American is an intersting label. When people say American, often it means from the USA, yet there are multiple other countries in the Americas. As above, I think if you come from a place of willingness to learn, the vast majority of people are very happy to have a conversation about it. Social Media makes it feel like everyone is constantly offended about terminolity, but in real life, across multiple cultures and languages, I've never found it to be an issue.
