“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”

Do we now have to add another round of hyphens if one is from northern Africa, i.e. Arab-African-American or North Sahara-African-American. We all originatated in Africa anyway via Lucy and whomever according the scientist so in a way everyone of us should start out with African. So I probably would be an African-European-American while someone from the Congo or Kenya would be an African-Middle Africa- African-American. Someone from China would be African-Asian-American.
Why not just call everyone here in America plain simple Americans and be done with it. When my wife took her citizenship test back in the early 90's INS was teaching there is no such thing as an hyphenated American, INS was say then we are all Americans regardless of where we were born or where we came from. Hmm, back to the melting pot of the world not a bad idea.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.

This thread and poll is just academia shallow pointless word games.
Nor does it grasp why black Africans are in America, they were brought against their will as slaves, and their ancestry in Africa dates back as the oldest in human history. White South African citizens are of recent in history European colonial conquest and subjugation, not genetic and ancestral heritage.
