A real issue with those Blacks who identify as “African-American” is the punctuation involved. The hyphen is wrong and should be used. The grammatical/logical symbol that should be separating “African” from “American” is ↮ the symbol for contradiction or an XOR value choice. This is especially true because the etymological root of “contradiction” is the Latin contradico, “speak against.”
The sad fact of it is that they’re either Black/African or they’re American. At best, and that best is vanishingly rare, it’s a sliding scale between being part of their people or part ours. They can’t be both because Blacks – those acknowledged by their own people as being Black Enough and not an American, e.g., those derided as being Oreos and/or Uncle Toms/ Aunt Jemimas – hate America and her people. And, you can’t be a true member of a people and/or nation while holding it to be utterly evil, loathsome, and the existential enemy of “your people.”

Personally, I’d say that it’s quite obvious that die Kellnerinnen (Waitresses) of the Biergärten (Beer Gardens, i.e., bars) are not evidence, but proof, that God wants us to be happy … and wants us to propagate. 😉
In Vino Veritas.
In Cervisiam Robur
In Sanguis Fidem.
Three fluids and three separate traits that they bear and provide. In wine there is truth; in beer there is strength; and in blood there is fidelity.
For myself, I say that the third, blood, and the fidelity it brings is the most important of the three. Any truth can be silenced and any strength overcome by treachery. Hence, the fidelity of blood, either that shared or that shed together is greatest.
While many, myself included, love the prose in the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, I do believe that many in society would benefit far more from the simple rules therein to be told to them in simple words.
Of course, since this is all delivered in the simple words of the “Hillbilly,” the “Redneck,” the “uneducated” men and women of America’s heartland, those sorts who are the most exilic from the Word, the most fallen away from any faith, and who would most benefit from simple rules in simple words are exactly the ones that would and will reject and deride this.
Then, a great many of those sorts would reject and deride these simple rules and their underlying wisdom no matter what prose they were couched in. They find them to be abhorrent and an abomination.
