1. a hyphenated word derived from the prefix 'Afro-', meaning African and the noun 'American', meaning a citizen of the United States of America.

2. used to describe an American of African descent.

3. a term which has fallen out of favor in recent years for the more politically correct two word phrase 'African American'. Possibly due to the fact that people think that the prefix 'Afro-' does not exist or is in some way derogatory. And believe the noun 'Afro', describing a popular 1970's hairstyle is the only definition available.
Some really smart kid named Jamal was ridiculed for using the word 'Afro-American', but he couldn't understand why. Then society explained it to him, but he still didn't understand the logic, or lack there of.
