So, if a boy is born in Africa, his skin color is "white", moves to the US and gets citizenship? What is his "nationality" African? American? "white"? Then there is a news broadcast I saw where an American called a black European (born and raised) an "african american".
How far are we going to let the language go before we never understand each other again?

Ex-student says NJ medical school discriminated

MOUNT LAUREL (AP) — A former student is claiming in a lawsuit that the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey discriminated against him for discussing his background.
Paulo Serodio says he was harassed, his car was vandalized and he was eventually suspended from New Jersey Medical School.
He says the trouble began during a cultural diversity class in 2006 when he identified himself as "white, African, American."
The light-skinned Serodio was born in Mozambique but later became a U.S. citizen.
But he says his description offended some black classmates and staff members and that he was eventually suspended for conduct unbecoming.
He's seeking damages.
A university spokesman did not have an immediate response.
