    Yes, I may appear over sensitive about it but it really wears me down the amount of times that people call me African American whenever I am in America. When I tell them that I am just an African,they look at me like they are surprised that as an African I am not wearing some tribal costume or exotic head wear.

    Do American regard the term black as being some kind of taboo word? How long before white Americans start calling themselves, European Americans and the like?


Yes and no. There's a push from people who are "politically correct" to not use the term black for some dumb reason. Most people (white and black) still use black.

To me African American...is just not a well thought out term. It doesn't apply to all black people the way white does to all white people. It singles them out as kind of American instead of them just being American. It's just...clunky.

I'm personally sticking with black.
