i really do wish people would just say "black" instead of "african american." i mean, when people start calling british black people "african americans," we've crossed the line.
how do you know he was "african american" and not just a black guy? :P nothing wrong with what you said. he should have laughed.
Back in the 30's and such, it was a compliment to be called "white." Eg. "That's mighty white of you, sir" (The Blue Dahlia; 1946). Maybe he took it as such. Probably not, though.
