If you mean golf, it stands for the Professional Golfers' Association (of America).
Nobody was able to secure 64 PGA victories between 1938 and 1939. However, the champion of the 1938 PGA Championship event was Paul Runyan from America.
Slavery changed America's history in many ways! Blacks were treated terrible and were forced to do work that was uneccesary.
The white Americans took blacks from Africa. They put them in a boat nude, and shipped them to America as slaves. They separated the blacks from their family. The slave masters did cruel things to these African slaves. This why African-Americans live in the United States. If the Americans never shipped blacks to America, blacks today would be in Africa. Also, this is why we have racism in America.
It's about the same as the percentage of straight blacks to the percentage of straight whites in America.
No... the first blacks in America would of been in New Amsterdam (later to be known as New York)
