    Now that I've seen the video of her interview - I agree with her even more. What a confident, comfortable in herself young woman!. We are who we are, and only we can put a label on it...if we so choose

    Bravo! My ancestry is German, but I became an American the day I was born in Detroit MI. We need more Americans.

    Not necessarily, as "African-American" denotes an American citizen with African heritage, much like "Japanese-American." If you want to be a smartass, you can say we're ALL really African-American, but then I'd have to slap you for being a smartass.
