When people get USA citizenship and say "I'm an American", does that mean the title of their race changed?

No. Your race, is your race. It is set at birth, and does not depend on what country you live in, although different countries have different definitions for race, especially in the USA.

Do you mean heritage / skin colour?
Being American is just being a citizen of a huge country mostly populated with the descendants of immigrants; race shouldn't be relevant, and wouldn't change anyway.
