At least here in the U.S. very few Slavs and descendants of Slavs identify with the meta-ethnic Slav label but rather with specific Slavic nations.

Yes, of course. What I meant by “Slavic identification” is feeling that specific nations belong to the Slavic family. For example, you have many people within Balkan Slavic nations that do not want to be called Slavs and they insist that their whole nation is non-Slavic. I would say this is a trend among Croatian, Bosniak and Macedonian nationalists.
