Why is Raven Symone being given so much flack for her "I'm an American" comment?

Recently in an interview w/ Oprah, Raven Symone stated that she wanted to be acknowledged as an "American" rather than an "African-American." The comment irked Winfrey and has had negative repercussions. Why?

    I applaud most of what you say, but Indians are not native to America, They walked here from Siberia. We took a boat from Europe. The only native people are those who never left Africa.
