That might be one of the USs major issues. When you drill down a huge chunk of the country think that they are European, African Asian etc who just happen to be living in America.
I’ve got a Scottish mother, Irish great grandparents, Romany on my dads side and mongrelised Londoners on my maternal grandmothers.
I only ever see myself as British English or English British.

And what are we anyway, but a collection of thoughts and emotions.
