Re: Last time I checked Spain was in Europe...

I always found the term African-American a bit weird to begin with, it's not like the white americans are referred to as "European-American" or "Caucasian-American" after all.

While I agree with the sentiment, I've heard both and more. Actually, I find the concept of race a bit weird. It's arbitrary and applied inconsistently. At best, it is a shortcut to assessing cultural affinity. At worst... let's not get into that. Perhaps one day we will have the additional classification of Android-American added to the list. That will come with a bit of a culture shift but not, I would guess, without the bigotry traditionally directed toward any new class or group.
