If a white person was born and raised in South Africa, but move to America and get American citizenship can they call themselves African-American? When they take the SATs are they eligible for the African-American scholarship?

I'm just curious. Because if these people are not true African-Americans because they are white (even though there are white Africans in North Africa), then doesn't that mean the only true Americans in America are Native Americans? But that doesn’t make sense because there's a theory Native Americans came across the Bering Strait from Asia. So that means there are no true Americans. But then humans supposedly evolved from somewhere in Africa. So does that mean that there are no Americans, Europeans, Asians, etc. only Africans? This means that white people are still African-American because they have ancestry from there.

WAIT THAT MEANS THAT EVERYONE IS ELIGIBLE FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN SCHOLARSHIPS BECAUSE EVERYONE IS AFRICAN AMERICAN

Calling black people "black" and white people "white" is a mis perception of color.
I have never seen a completely black person and I have never seen a completely white person.

I believe the light skinned people who live in Africa were originally from Europe.
But still should be considered African American and be given equal rights as any other African American.

First off the Bering Strait is between Alaska and Russia. And secord, the American Indian did not cross the Straits. Maybe the Inuits did, Check your history books.

Right you are. So now we can do away race quotas and just hire the most qualified. Let's not look at that for college enrollments either. I'm with you on this one.

Lets face it, we all are different. Some are yellow skinned, pink, red and brown.
Each one of us can be considered a racist just because we may not like the normal behavior of another race. The reason for that is because each race is brought up differently and believes in a certain type of life style.
I,m a racist against people who are stealing, mugging, robbing, too agressive and just plain A holes.

White people who are born and raised in Africa and then become a American citizen are considered African Americans. They should have all rights and free handouts from the government as any other African Ameican gets.

Bullshit,like hell they should those stinking Nazis who call themselves Boers/Afrikaner have no right to ANY handout. Blacks dont considered them African American only you whites do.

They are not African Americans, they are Europeans and oppressors of my people.

You don't say who your people are. Do you mean that you own people and thats why you call them "your people"? I don't know what black folks you've been hanging with but all the other's are proud to say that they are African American. Except the blacks from England, they have more class than black people from America.
Yes, any race that was born in Africa and then came to America should be treated as any African American is treated and given any thing they want.

It's obvious that you are white. White people aren't called "Honkies" any more. They are called, "crackers"
and Whities. So don't pretend that you are black.

If Whites are oppressors why do they let you live in their White countries? Why would they give you free money to live in their countries? Why would Whites pay so you can be a jobless bum?

You have never been oppressed at all and should be grateful you have the privilege to live in a White country on the backs of the British.

Britain ended slavery almost 200 years ago, yet still blame them for you short coming in a society you don't pay a cent into.

You a disgusting piece of trash, blaming Whites for your failure, while having your hands out demanding and taking every handout Whites give to you.

Your parasitic race truly is pathetic.
