The usage of African-American, one automatically assumes that it's referring to the United States actually it could be anywhere in the western hemisphere. Which means descendant from Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica, Canada, the Caribbean Islands, or anywhere in the Americas.

The word African specifically relates to the indigenous people of the African continent and their descents in the Diaspora ( Caribbean , Americas , Arabia , etc). The race-nationality model such as that currently employed by African-American, African-Brazilian and African-Caribbean communities more accurately describes the identity whilst fully articulating the history and geopolitical reality

Other such denigrating terminology when made in reference to African culture, heritage or identity are 'Tribe', 'Sub-Saharan Africa', or 'black Africa '.
