What part of America do you live in? LoL! I've never known White Americans to just consider Blacks to just be "Americans". They always have to stick that "African" in front.
Just like if you were born in California and are of Asian decent you're Asian-American. Even if your great great GREAT grandfather AND mother was born here.
You don't hear Irish-American or German-American much.
But you hear African-American, Korean-American, Asian-American. There's actually a REFUSAL to just call "others" pure "American".
Hell even the "Indians" can't be just American and they got here way before the Europeans. They even had to stick Native in front of their American-ness!
Now a good portion of that may be our "fault" because previous terms to describe us were so offensive we need something better to be called. And the term sounded so nice so we stuck with it, but.... Naw, Dawg I don't think we are just considered "Americans" anywhere in America.
And we ARE off topic.
Guys who hate curly hair are just idiots and its best to leave them where they are... Or where they NEED to be- OUT OF YOUR LIFE!
