  •  There was an article on Asian American (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Denise Oliver Velez

    in this week's Economist.  It said, among other things, that while immigrants from the various Asian countries tend to prefer more specific names (Indian American, Vietnamese American etc.) their kids tend to prefer the larger grouping.

    Still ....  Asian-American .... that would include Israelis and Arabs and some Russians and Chinese and Japanese and so on and on and on.

    Then, of course, there's African American. Which logically would have to include people whose ancestors came from Egypt or Tunisia, but doesn't.
