Why do you consider yourself to be AFRICAN American?

Posted by   + Show Post

I know I'm going to be bashed for this post but I'm curious... Why do you consider yourself to be African American? Have you ever been to Africa? Can you trace your blood line back to you African relatives?

I'm sure this doesn't apply to some people but most black Americans have never been to Africa and or have no knowledge of their African blood line. So why categorize yourself as "African"? 

Most of the Africans I know are either white or have a very fair complexion.

 I can only trace my line back to roughly 6 generation back 1906 and were all from Texans with the exception of some Lousiana and California. I would love to be considered American, but you know how people in America like labels.
