Why do people use African American and Caucasian?

If they use African American they should use Europian American.

If they want to use Caucasion they should use Negroid and Mongoloid.

"Caucasion" only applies to the Eur-Asian-African population with origins among the Indo-European or Afro-semitic speaking peoples.

It doesn't apply to the Europeans with other origins, e.g. Finno-Ugric (without previous Indo-European language history).

It certainly should be Negroid American seeing how any white person who happens to have been born in Africa such as my wife (South Africa in this case)and therefore is ACTUALLY African American is informed they are not permitted to be considered African American for the basis of our Government run Spoils System because she is not “from one of the black racial groups of Africa.”
