Why do White people in America only identify with the term American but nothing else?

So you have African Americans, Native Americans, Mexican Americans, or Asian Americans etc. But White people in America seems to be the outkast? Can someone help me understand this?

A warm place with no memory.
If an application or census form had the choice "European American", I'd check it.

In the meantime just keep callin' me cracka. :thup:

It would be rather lengthy to state that I am a Scottish/Irish/German/Black Dutch/Cherokee American..

Caucasians in America no longer have a need, political or otherwise to differentiate themselves from the majority; they are it.

WHITE PEOPLE ARE AMERICANS FIRST AND FOREMOST. ALL THESE OTHERS REFUSE TO BE REAL AMERICANS AND WANT TO BE SEPARATE BUT BETTER.

Because that's what the fuck we are. That's also what black people SHOULD BE. As should Asians, Mexicans and Indians. Which they actually claim to be. Only NEGROES qualify their citizenship with that unnecessary African shit in front of their race.

I found these in less than 2 minutes. We will keep calling ourselves African American. Not out of spite because it really doesnt matter what you think but for the same reasons these groups do.

In the early 20th century when Immigration from Europe was heavy, the white people from Europe bought into the idea that comming here would make you 'American' and all that that meant, they stressed to their children born here to be patriotic to the country who had just taken in their parents and grandparents, many of them changed their names and didnt bother to teach their kids the language of their home country because now they were American.
Thats what my family did when they came here from Brazil around that time, changed the spelling of the last name and gave up Portuguese, we were American now.

Immigrants today are told to behave differently, hell, stupid things like the pledge of allegance are seen as an insult today.

Guess what?

You can be other things and still be American. Being American is not the endall of your existence

So you can be an American of Italian heritage
You can be an African American

You can even be a urban American or an elderly American or god forbid, a Texan American

Doesn't make you any less of an American
