I think it's ignorant to register yourself as American. You just cancel out your family history.

And wow, I'm from the most African American populated county per capita in the north east... But i reside Bergen County, NJ now.. ITALIANO!!

Most likely Luzerne County, which has Wilkes-Barre. It is a very Polish area of PA and I think that is the predominate ethnic group there.
