that's true but in reality black people are hypervisible and cant separate themselves from their blackness. not in the united states. is Morgan Freeman black? yeah. is he American? yeah
if you, as a black person, want to emphasize that you are an American foremost, that's cool. but 'american' isn't an ethnicity.

Please elaborate. Why don't we refer to them as "White Americans" when we refer to others as "African Americans", "Asian Americans", "Jewish Americans", "Hispanic Americans" etc?

Then why not "Caucasian American"? It would only be at least as redundant as any of the other terms.

The other terms are polite euphemisms, required due to the stigma of past injustice.

Because the words we already have haven't been run off the euphemism treadmill yet.

Many countries do actually officially classify white people with similar labels though.

Actually, we are talking about the treadmill. The other terms arose due to historical Racial abuses, something that has not happened to whites - there is no negative association with "Caucasian" like there is with "Negro" or "Oriental" or what have you
