I am an American Black. Period. Afro-Americans, African-American, whatever, I am not hyphenated American, regardless of how others define themselves. They can be Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, Jewish-Americans, or whatever hyphens they would like to use. For me the noun is Black; American is the adjective.
