Yes, if you are going to be proud to be American, don’t contradict yourself and stick another nationality in there with it. I am American with Irish and Scandanavian background. I am sure that some of the ‘African-Americans’ have African blood from a really long time ago, but have they ever stopped to think about The Bahamas, they are black. What about Indonesia? There are more places in this world that are predominately black than Africa. Come on people, get a grip and just be proud to be AMERICAN.
