Why do many people call blacks born in the U.S. " African Americans " ? Seems to me they are americans that happen to be black.

      I understand. To me if one’s is born in America they are american. I never hear anyone described as " Jamaican American or German American."

    I don’t often refer to them as french canadians. To me they are canadians that live in Quebec that speak french. Besides the term french canadian speaks to their language and not to the colour of their skin.
