Being African-American is an 'accusation'?[edit]

Although I recognize that in some periods of American history, it was indeed an accusation to allege that someone (especially someone who claimed otherwise) was of African heritage, it's certainly wrong to use the phrase accusation that she was of African American descent in Wikipedia's voice. Do we mean She was examined several times [in efforts] to prove that she was not of African American descent—"in efforts" added if the results were not conclusive.
