Afro-Anglo, Afro-American?

Since the definition of "white" is Anglo, why aren't African Americans considered Anglos of African descent? I'm not saying we should be called Afro-White. Why not be called Afro-English?

United States
Main article: Anglo-America

In the United States, Anglo generally refers to White Americans who are not of Hispanic or Latino origin, and sometimes to those who are not of French origin.[3] The term is used without regard to whether or not they are of English, Irish, or Scottish descent.

Southern Africa
Main article: Anglo-African

In South Africa, Anglo-South African[citation needed] is used for predominantly British-descended, English-speaking white people, who are contrasted with the Dutch-descended Afrikaners. Use of Anglo occurs elsewhere in former British colonies in Africa which have sizable British communities, including Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Kenya. However, the term "Anglo" is more heavily used in South Africa than in these other countries because of Apartheid and the importance it placed on race.

Yeah, you hear the term Afro-Cuban, Afro-Colombian, Afro-Latino, Afro-Hispanic. Why not Afro-Anglo? Jamaica is an Afro-Anglo country. They have the British heritage just like we do here.

Afro-American is just fine. But most of Afro-Americans simply prefer to be called Black.

The african living in england is SUPERIOR to AAs because his ancestors didnt hang from noose and forget his culture or cotton picked for slave owners..The time he usually said YES BOSS! was to his wage paying employer..Afro latinos who consider themselves latino are inferior to black americans because not only wer they worked on farms in scorching heat, they inherited poverty from their spanish fathers..The ruthless african entrepreneur who sold them both is the real winner in all this..HE now owns large farms and his family are elite in their respective countries, their children are now presidents.. and even now hold domestic african workers
