If a white man from South Africa moves to America and becomes a citizen, is he considered African American?



No, he is an American of South African Descent.


yes he would be a south african....BUT he would use the country he was born from...africans complain that since africa is so many nations to claimthe wholecontinent islike saying your born in america..so are you a southern american,centerall american or north american.....

No. African-Americans are descendants of American slaves and slave owners.

The reason the term African American is used because Black Americans in the U.S. have very little clue as to who their original African ancestor is from Africa. Which is why they use the term “African” denoting the entire continent. I'm guessing a white person would use the term “South African American”
