I came here when I was 6 from NY and I hate it I enjoyed my time in America but because of my grandparents moving here my parents moved here two

And we're called black British because some are from Africa some are from the Caribbean and some are American as well as other places

Hello Black helper..your story is really interesting. I mean why did your Grandparents move to England in the first place?

Why did your Parents follow and why do you now hate England?

You do realise you can never go back..if you have lived in England since the age of six NY will be alien to you imo.

My ex-wife moved to England when she was six..she went back to Jamaica(Brownstown, Kingston) when she was twenty two and felt totally out of place even though she had family there.

Their British because they were born in Britain and nothing else. On official forms it is standard, although you can just write black and write where you are from. The term is usually used in officialdom. Now grow up and get your facts right. Oh, by the way, black British people speak English, but their not English.(I can hear the cogs of your little brain whirling from here)

@lewis..where was you born? I was born in England therefore I am English..it sound better to call ourselves Black Brits...it rolls off the tongue easier. Fu..ck official forms..you can class yourself as a nomad if you want to...you are not a spokesperson for Black Brits/English...stop splitting hairs..you aint smart...btw did that loser latino boy bring up English, NO..you did...you must be confused what to class yourself as..YOU are English becuase you were born in England.

By rights we should call ourselves Black English..it just dont sound cool though..:))

im black and british for starters and im glad im not afro american because they seem to have it alot worse in the states, whites over there just appear less tolerant and racist then the typically more open minded white brit.
Are you educated and well spoken? You appear to be. So is it that hard to figure out? Why don't you read all of the Afro Americans here butchering the English language. It's not hard to learn but they are lazy and have an attitude, that's all. They are even so lazy that they ignore the spell checker red lines that topix gives them, so what does that say right there?

What is actually happening is Martin Luther King's dream. Judge a man not by the color of their skin, judge them by the content of their character. He actually thought that freedom would allow and cause Afro Americans to step up, but the exact opposite has happened, and the more you give them, the less they do and more they hate you.

Then they try to use the excuse that the SAT tests, which people take to become eligible for college, are culturally biased and that's why they do so poorly. Can anybody tell me how the math portion of those tests, which black people do so poorly in, are culturally biased? How can math be culturally biased?

So how would you feel if you had to live with people like this? How would Brits feel?

You might hate it, but look at how much better you can write then all of the Afro Americans here? If you would have stayed in the US, they would have dragged you down with them and their lazy, angry attitudes.

I am new here of course. i was just surfing the web looking for Black British forums to gage my upcoming trip to the UK. So far all of the post that i have come across are filled with hatred and stereotypical criticism of Black Americans. I am just curious as to where all of the negativity is drawn from, or is it a misconception derived from TV. I would love to enlighten any mature British brothas and sistas out their, in exchange for information on lifestyles and culture of Black Britain. Trolls dont waste your time. I can smell yall a mile away.

Dude just come to England and throw yourself into the deep end. That is what I did when I went to the US..St Louis...just keep your head down and mind your own business and you'll get along just fine IMO...you'll find your feet eventually.

If you want to sample how Black Brits live then London should be your first port of call IMO..it’s just like the South side of Chicago.

This is stupid. In america they have all black uni. they dont have that in england.
That arose due the history of America because of segregation.

In England integration is officially preferred, so there are no all black colleges.

People assume all blacks inherits their roots from africa.
What about asia? lol blacks come from there too.
I don't know which ugly people you people are seeing, this is what I see:

Africans are kind of dumb..they think we can’t tell the difference between a natural born Black Brit and a natural born Black American...they make me laugh.

I do believe we have fu..ck all to learn from the current influx of Africans...they try too hard to be like us and/or Black Americans.

You are such fool...... who wants to be who?? bro better smell the fact about life, if you have brit accent is gonna get worse for you because the accent doesn't belongs to you and in the USA such thing like "black man with white accent" piss them off. The brit just look at you as a black begger who wants to remain in their country because you aint got no place to go to.
