WTF is that?
*On a serious note, I hate the term African American, but this doesn't seem like the beginning of a serious thread *
That is an American woman born in Africa- an African-American?
Yup. What is a European? An Irishman? German? Scot? Frenchman? Or possibly even a black woman born in England. Oh gasp...
Well... why do blacks born here in USA call themselves African Americans?
Probably because the continent of Africa is comprised mostly of black people and their lineage can be traced there? Just a guess.
Everyone's lineage can be traced of Africa.
Why aren't they Detroit Americans- most of the people who live there are black, too.
Separate names with a comma.
