What does African American look like? Seriously. Dark skin? Many groups on planet earth have dark skin and they are not African American. Brown skin? Many groups on planet earth have brown skin and they are by no means African-American. What about the size of noses and lips? Many groups on planet earth have larger noses and lips and they are not African American. Like lots of white people, like Jimmy Durante, like many Semitic people, like many Middle Eastern people. Conversely, many Africans (of Africa) have smaller lips and noses than white people. How about hair texture? Does that physically mark people as African-Americans? Nope. Many white folks, Semitic folks, and folks from different islands have thick, frizzy/curly hair, ringlets or even hair naturally curled tight enough to be a so-called "Afro." Conversely, aborigines have naturally straight hair or naturally wavy hair and many of them are naturally blond. But they aren't African-American.
Actress Halle Berry, singer Mariah Carey, and actress Jennifer Beals are all the same: they have one white parent and one black parent. Does Jennifer Beals look African-American to you?
So we are left with the question: what does African American "look like"?
