The Los Angels Time and the Proper Noun Black-Americans

Several articles in the Los Angeles Times have used the word “black” in reference to a race. When referencing race, it is a proper noun “Black”. Birth Certificates say that race is “Black” is makes it a proper noun. I noticed that the words African-American are shown as proper nouns, I am not African, I am a Black-American.

Literally I am not African, and going by my Birth Certificate and not my sister’s, I am “Negro-American”.
