Black Americans in the USA are commonly referred to as "African Americans", and similarly there are "Asian" and "native" Americans, and people from South America are called "Hispanics".
From my perspective (Netherlands) this would make most white Americans "European Americans", but somehow they are usually just referred to as "white (Americans)".
Wouldn't it be more fitting and consistent to also refer to these people according to their heritage, like this is done to others?
Part of my motivation for asking this question is that sometimes I get the impression that they feel like they are the native inhabitants of the USA, or that they just materialized there out of thin air.
Googling this does produce a Wikipedia page titled "European Americans", very few actual news reports or other articles in which this is mentioned, second and third results are "White Americans" and "Americans" Wikipedia pages.
