What makes a 'black person' black?

I am far from being a racist person. I believe everyone should be treated equally regardless of skin colour or the language they speak. However while at a clinic today, I overheard some African American people talking to each other. One was a younger female mother, with a daughter in tow. The other was an older nurse, who must of been almost 70. I really was not paying attention, however my ears perked up when I heard the younger woman say 'negro'. Apparently they were discussing radio or music.

Death of a Spider

This may sound slightly insane, but...

I generally like to have a predatorial insect or spider living in my house with me.  Mainly as a kind of mini-pet, but also as a kind of anti-pest patrol.  My favorite would have to be a House Centipede.  But while those are recluse, they also seem to be quite rare.  Especially in upper level apartments.  So my current pest control was a spider who lives on the ceiling in my bathroom.  He would happily hang there and watch me do my buisness, while he patiently waited for prey for a good 2 months.

Dealing with Neighbours

Our new neighbour was great for the first few months.  But recently he acquired a large stereo system, and him and his 13 year old daughters have been playing music with very loud bass that shakes the house.  We have asked them to keep the bass down.  He has turned it down when requested so far, but the bass always creeps back up in a few hours, or the next day.  However he seems to be getting annoyed with our complaints recently.
