I wanna pet that bunny and eat the pancake...
Question though, can South Aficans(white ones) be considered African-Americans if they truely consider themselves a product of Africa?
My brother was born in Cali and considers himself a New Yorker like my parents and I are.
OP: You clearly dont identify yourself as black as you stated that you were indian. I would mark down other on your applications then write in Indian. Asians still get some consideration as URMs, but it is important to differntiate yourself from other Asian groups which are percieved as overrepresented.
