some african men find african american desirable, it has nothing to do with attraction because there are alot of attractive black american women but when it comes to finding a mate or partner, the driving force for many african men are culture. So their more inclined to date/marry within their culture, thats just how it is(even though thats the case the are african men/african american women marriages but its low).
answer to your last question its not true that akon hates dark skinned AA women, but I think it has been stated that akon mentioned that the darker a person is the more stigma/roots come along with it.

since Black american women and African men possess different cultures, it is harder for them to find a connection between the two.

hasn't been my experience with the west african men i met some years ago. i was young and not ready for a relationship and especially marriage. if i had been i would have married one back then!

west african men have a different vibe. they treat you like your fragile; like you need to be protected and this is geniune coming from them; it is not to simply make a good impression. now they can be pushy too!

I don't think african men have any problems with AA women but most don't get with each other because of culture, just because both are black is irrelevant

yes culture is some what of a barrier, but one that can certainly be overcome. funny i don't hear about the "culture difference" thing when africans are getting with europeans,asians, etc..

don't cultural differences exist there also?

i feel that we have MUCH more in common with west african men and women then do, say a white person from russia.

anyways, when i was dating them the cultural differences did not keep us from liking each other and having a good time! some things you just got to be mindfull of.

I have been approached by several African men. I have a few friends that married African men. I know a few that date African men. I personally have never dated an African man. I think it's more cultural than anything.

There are a number of nigerian men who are married to AA women so culture is not really a barrier and besides we are blacks so why should there be a barrier?

culture cannot be an obstacle for everthing,both my parents belong to different cultures in fact in most of my part of west africa my people belong to a diverse cultures,i don't think there should be a problem who to date,culture is vastly overrated in terms of relationship maybe because some of us come from diverse cultures and families that hardly only speak a single language,in my family it is bamana,soninke and fulani,that alone is too diverse to go according to a single culture because i'd lie to myself,the same as we cannot judge ourselves based on that we cannot judge relationships based on that also
