As an Afican American? Do you even know anything about Africa? Who in your family is from Africa? why do you get offended? just because you are black doesnt mean you are from africa. White people are not European Americans, they are American or white, but no one gets offended for not being called European Americans.

**EDIT**
For all of you that refuse to read the post, you are idiots. I don't care what people preferred to be called, I just truly want to know why black people get offended for not be referred to as African American, since not all black people are from Africa. So before you answer read the Question and not the replies from the idiots that didn't read it in the first place.

I don't know...but someone did jump me one time for using that phrase. I thought I was being polite by calling them that instead of black.
