There are plenty of truly African people who are not black. I use the scenario that you parachute a black American into the middle of Africa, what are they? A black American with African roots. Parachute me into the middle of Europe (my heritage), what am I? A white American with European roots. Nothing more nor less. Just as I would in no way be considered European, the vast majority of black America cannot be considered African. The skin color does not warrant it. Social, cultural, lingustical, moral, ethical, culinary, political, and many more have prominence over the skin color when defining hyphenization of citizenry.
