African American is a term used to describe black Americans, America was originally an all white continent, till they went and got black slaves, and when the slave era was over, black slaves became freemen and Americans.  Today an African American is the president of the United States of America, so the the American continent can’t be separated from the blacks that live on it.

Today i heard African American and i started thinking and i realized that African comes before American to remind them of where they came from, Africa, that the are blacks. A lot of them have forgotten that, this is how we tend to live our lives, we seem to forget where we came from. so take out time today to think about where your came from and not just only in the sense of culture and race. thank you.
