What ethnicity to put on application?

Ok, so I am 100% Egyptian. I was born in Egypt and moved to U.S. when I was very young, and I currently have a green card but I am not a citizen. Now I have been told by several people, including one of my teachers, that I can legitimately put down African-American for my college application. I've been told this would help my application, but do you think I could do it? and if not, is there another ethnicity for me to put, or is it just white?
