This is only partly true since it ignores the millions of white Americans who are decendents of American Indians. Just because the white guy down the street has blond hair and blue eyes doesn't mean he doesn't have Indian blood from generations ago. He's American, not European.Lazarus said:I called refer to them as Europeans too.
"America, in fact, is nothing but Europe. The white people in America are not Americans but in fact Europeans. When we call them Americans we allow them to escape; we define them incorrectly. We should call them Europeans and understand that they took that continent from somebody else. WHen you call them Americans you forget that theywere Europeans, because you give them in fact the theory of native origin, that they came out of America. Where did Americans come from? They came from America - that is, somebody you call American. But, if you say they are Europeans (which is what they are), then the question arises as to where they came from - Europe." - Kwame Ture.
In the end who cares what they choose to call themselves??
