African American History or Black American History, a history of black people in the United States from their arrival in the Americas in the 15th century until the present day. In 1996, 33.9 million Americans, about one out of every eight people in the United States, were black.

"I feel this way about it. World trade means world peace and consequently the World Trade Center buildings in New York ... had a bigger purpose than just to provide room for tenants.

Culoarea pielii este influentata de trei pigmenti de baza: carotenul(galben), hemoglobina(rosu) si melanina(brun). Melanina este produsa de celule speciale din piele, numite melanocite. Diferitele rase tind sa aiba acelasi numar de melanocite, dar care sunt grupate diferit si producgranule de melanina ce variaza ca marime si cantitate.
