Why do people try to claim African-Americans as white?

They are not white they are only 10% white on average and they clearly do NOT look white anyway they should be considered BLACK like what they are stop claiming them as everything but black it doesn’t matter if they are pure or not they have 80 to 90% Sub-Saharan African genes they are black simple as that.

Update:

@anonymous your going to call them black anyway because that’s what they are

    Nobody calls us white and black americans have varying degrees of white admixture that we don't even claim.

    Technically since race theory didn't even exist until the Victorians invented it and since it has largely been debunked, none of us are really anything more than just slightly different version of the same exact group, that being homo sapiens. Race is more social than scientific.

    Skincolour is not about "percentages", and there is nothing to "consider".

    The hypothesis that humans come in races and the "one-drop-rule" have been proven wrong 70 years ago

    Sounds like you need something new to think about. Is there a community college near by?

    1. Which people are you referring to that make this claim?

    2. Why the f*** do you care so much?

    3. Why are you posting anonymously unless you're trying to hide something?

    I have never heard anyone say this...but I am sure you also say "Barack Obama was not black, because he had a white mother".  So pick...  ARE black people only black IF they have two black parents, or not? (You can't pick both - that is like saying "3 is 3, except when it is 2".)

    Who tries to claim that they are white?

    Whatever they want to identify with is their choice, and whatever they want to be called I call them.
