Am I African American?? Everyone has different opinion.

Ok, so I think of myself to be 100% African American. My parents, their parents and their parents parents were born in south africa, and so was I. The reason that people (my teachers mostly) debate this is because I am white. I feel that the term African American applies to me, but some of my teachers refuse to let me check the box that says that on tests. What do you think?
