    Did a black site just use ‘tribal’ in its description of ethnic pieces? How ignorant! Do you what other mammal is also referred to as being part of a tribe? Monkeys. Have you ever asked yourself why white people are never considered part of a tribe even if they fit the anthropological definition? Black Americans sadden me with the level of ignorance they seem to accept and embrace.
