Category talk:People from Africa

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This category is a bit silly. You don't refer to someone as "a person from Africa" you say he's "African", Same goes for "People from Asia". Wouldn't it make more sense to have categories for "Asians", "Africans", "Europeans", "North Americans" and "South Americans". Then their country could be added if reasonable as well. Just thinking of how people would look for something & reducing typing in the "Search" box. I suppose it depends on what categories are for. :-) SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:10, 15 October 2008 (EDT)

What's up with this[edit]

It seems a little weird to me that we have a category called "People from Africa," since there's no "People from North America/Australia/Europe" etc. Maybe it's just me. PACODOGwoof, bitches 04:34, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Thought I'd bring this up again before adding the "delete" template to the page. Anybody see a need for this category? PACODOGwoof, bitches 22:47, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
I'm all for deletion, there's only two people in this category. We could just merge them into Category:Africa. --Sir Onion Kneel before my vegetable might! 22:52, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
When I saw this, I was certain the only article in it was going to be Barack Obama. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:54, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
I suppose Category:People from Asia should go as well, tho it has more pages. PACODOGwoof, bitches 22:57, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
