The problem is, There is no such thing as Somalian american In the American society classification. Either you are a caucasian, Native, African american, hespanic or Asian American.


What do you guys think I should call myself?



InshAllah I have a feeling that after the census is done N recorded...that there will be a "Somali (Not SomaliAN!!) American" option in job applications, school applications, and other stuff :up:

If your ancestors were slaves = African-American
If you or your ancestors were immigrants = Somali (or whatever country name for that matter) American

What is Somalian?


New Hargeisa and PO,

The option of just "AMERCAN" doesn’t exist on that application since he’s not American YET.

Once you achieve citizenship, you will be an American nation with ethnic description of African-American or Black American. Somalis are just one of many black peoples, nothing special.

I would be offended If I was called African America. Unlike the Somalis, African american didn't come here at their free will and have history of slavery.
