A term for whites that is what "African-American" is to blacks. The term "European-American" will never be applied to whites due to double standards in racial equality in the United States.
A Guy: Hey! look at that black guy over there!
Another Guy: Hey! you said black guy! That's racist. They're called African Americans. Racist!
A Guy: But he mostly likely isn't from Africa! I bet he hasn't even been there, or at least met a family member who was born there! If he's called an African-American, I should be called a European-American!
Another Guy: Racist! You racist! You...! I hope you die!
Smart Guy: You're right, you should be called that. But that'd make sense, so you will never be called a European-American. You see, there are double standards when it comes to racial equality, despite a general want to attain equality. So, 'white guy,' what you see over there is an African-American. Got it?

Black people will some times claim to not be black, but to be African American. Annoyed white people will than say, "well, I'm not albino, so I guess I'm European American."
Black guy: Did you hear about the white guy?
Black guy2: No, what?
Black guy: We were telling him how hard it is to be black and he claimed to be a European American, so we torched his car and family.

The REAL name for a Caucasian (white) American.
1: Hey look it's an American.
2: Actually he's a European American because we all know that Native Americans are the true Americans.

The counterpart to the term African-Americans. Members of the Anglo-Saxon race who were either born in or live in the United States of America.
Do any Black Americans realize that referring to them as "African-Americans" insinuates that even if they were born in the United States of America they continue to be foreigners? What would happen if mainstream media started referring to White Americans as "European-Americans," as in, "Though in the United States of America the quantity of Latinos (16.3%) now surpasses the number of African-Americans (12.6%), European-Americans comprise 72.4% and Asians comprise 4.8% of the population (2010 Census). Notice that Latinos and Asians have not been inflicted with or infected by a hyphen.
