I am really American? I was born in America but I have lived completely in Africa.?



I don't know what your question is but you have American citizenship by birth which is your nationality unless you have renounced your citizenship. Now a person can have dual citizenship which would mean dual nationality.. So I don't know if you have citizenship also in an African country or not. Your ancestry can be many things. I know nuns from Ireland who have dual citizenship. They can vote in U.S. elections and vote by mail in Irish elections.


It depends on your citizenship. I was born in South Korea, but I was adopted into America and was granted citizenship there, therefore, I am American.


What does your current passport say?


If you were born in America, you are an American Citizen. Your Nationality is the country of your birth, Your ethnicity is the culture you were raised in. Check your Passport it will tell you.

Yes. Birthright citizenship in the United States is acquired by virtue of the circumstances of birth. It contrasts with citizenship acquired in other ways, for example by naturalization. Pursuant to the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), U.S. citizenship is automatically granted to any person born within and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States (known as jus soli). This includes the territories of Puerto Rico, the Marianas (Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands), and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Birthright citizenship also applies to children born elsewhere in the world to U.S. citizens (with certain exceptions), known as jus sanguinis.


Am I really American or am I Zeta Reticulan? I was born here on Earth, in America, but I lived completely on a planet in orbit around Zeta Reticuli. Can put that on the census form and other documents?


your african!


then you are American-African.

That would make you an african american i think, (even if you are white). Really If you were raised in Africa and have an African passport, you are African. But you can probably claim US citzenship and say you are american. I judge people by their accents, so if you speak like an african you would be thought of as african.
