Whites think African American is a better term.  http://bit.ly/1xFUvaf
I like the term "Kwaan Americans," from kwanzaa (~kwaanzu) meaning "first fruit" in Swahili and is celebrated since 1966 in USA.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa
Kwanzaa should be celebrated by us all, because as we now know, Africa begat the first fruit of the whole human race.So let blacks be called kwaan  and let us celebrate our kwaan, like in the movie Jerry McGuire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8jI9FTN3rE
