It's the theory that Africans and African-Americans are different races?

I don't know. They are the same (part of them at least) except many of them are mixed with White because of the stupid slave owners.0

I don't know what it's called, but I hate the way the term African-American is used. I grew up across the street from a family that was born in Africa and moved to America. They were African-Americans. People who were born in America and have never been to Africa are American. I was born in America and have never been to Europe, so I'm American. I wouldn't go around saying I'm European-American because I'm not. And then what would I call my European-American coworkers? They're not just European anymore once they live here and have gained citizenship.2
