Nono I see, looking up the history of the term it does seem to have been both taken as a good thing and a bad thing by Black people in the past. It's just interesting to me I guess I guess because you'll rarely get people saying I'm Anglo-African, Jamaican-English or some silliness over here.
Not to mention as pointed out in the link Kent has posted you'd be making some major assumptions by using the term
Also had an interesting discussion with a friend on whether it makes you racist to refer to a White person as "so some guy blah blah blah" but if they were black you said "so some black guy blah blah blah".
It's not because it depends on the majority and skin colour of yourself and that you're used to, but it's funny seeing the amount of indignity some people can feel about it
