Interesting turn of phrase 'Euroamerican or Afroamerican'.
Presumably the term 'native american' is now replaced by
'Americoamerican'? And, by implication, groups of the latter ethnic
origin (whatever they are supposed to be called these days) are excluded
from academic study in the advertised post?
Luckily in the UK we have the word 'bonkers'.
