That was Kriss Akabusi. The interview went like this: "So, Kriss, what does this mean to you as an African-American?" "I'm not American, I'm British" "Yes, but as a British African-American ..." "I'm not African. I'm not American. I'm British." The American interviewer was so entrenched in his PC nomenclature he couldn't fathom the stupidity of his question.
I can't fathom that one either. I can only imagine it has to do with not really wanting to be American. It reminds me of a black British athlete who was being interviewed onAmerican TV. The interviewer described him as African-American to which the athlete replied "I'm English mate".
Yeah, I find that weird as well. I've never heard an Australian say that they are British-Australian, German-Australian, Italian-Australian etc. My first wife was born an Australian. Her parents were both Dutch (Australian permanent residents) but none of them ever referred to themselves as Dutch-Australians even though they are quite proud of both their heritage and their adopted country.
