Venting...

I am an American citizen.

I am not an African-American .
I fully embrace my background, so anyone of color please do not be offended by me rejecting your hyphen.

But I am American. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents, great-great grandparents were born on this land.

I did not migrate from anywhere so please keep your hyphen. Just because I have color in my skin does not mean you just categorize me as you please.
