Although you asked this for African-Americans...I'm going to answer as the mother of a black child. I have friends who don't care what the hec you call them as long as it is not the N word or offensive. Whoopi Goldberg actually says she does not like the term Africian-American because she is an American - you don't need to stick some classifier in front of it to signify her race. You don't say Caucasian-American. That is her stance. She prefers, I think, to be called black when talking about race and ethnicity. I personally cringe when going to Wal-Mart or some other store and see products directed at black people under "ethnic care products." What is ethnic? We are all from some ethnic or cultural background.
