I was born in America as well as majority of the USA citizens. I personally feel as though the words African American is uncalled for. The only box's that need to be on any applications should be American or other. If marked other only means you where born abroad and that is where you would explain your pace of birth.
I personally believe that this classification is a main thorn in the side of equality. If everybody continue to use these separation tactics supplied by the government, we will always be divided. An African American is a person who was or is born in Africa then moves to America. We are all American or Not simple as that. If you agree with what I'm presenting, please let me know.
