I just got finished watching Spike Lee's "Miracle At St. Anna" which depicts how African American Buffalo Soldiers in WWII Europe were treated far better by foreign Whites than they were by thier White American counterparts. Although Lee's movie was extremely controversial, it was undoubtedly true because the dissent that American soldiers had in a segregated army echoed through the Black community at large culminating into the Civil Rights Movement of the late sixties.
I've only traveled throughout Latin America, and in my experience African Americans are treated pretty much like White Americans. Maybe just a smidgen more, because just about everyone nowadays hates White Americans and the geniuses are completely oblivious to the fact. But I wanted input from AA's who have traveled abroad, or some Europeans themselves that have met African Americans in thier countries. Do you think there is a difference in the treatment of African Americans abroad as opposed to in the U.S.?

Trust me: they don't want you in their countries. So far, they have largely been spared the rampant TNB and violence that accompanies your presence in the United States. If you want to go to a place that is made for you and will welcome you with loving arms, please book a one-way flight to Monrovia, Liberia.

WE GAVE YOU PEOPLE YOUR OWN DAMN COUNTRY! WHAT MORE COULD YOU POSSIBLY WANT (STEAL)?

We? We who? You? Did you give something to 'you people'?

You're hilarious.

Anyway, I was treated great in Italy, England, and France and the first time I recognized the racism spoke of WAS RIGHT HERE IN USA.

There was prejudice from blacks, racism from hispanics, indians, asians, and racism from whites.

It's sad.

America created the nation of Liberia as a place to repatriate former slaves to. The capital, Monrovia, is named after President James Monroe.

Learn some history, you stupid nignog.

NO....NOT IN GENERAL...EUROPE HAS A VERY HIGH APPRECIATION FOR THE ARTS AND SCIENCES...AS A CONSEQUENCE THEY HAVE ALWAYS TREATED ARTIST AND MEN AND WOMEN OF NOTE...WITH SOME DEGREE OF APPRECIATION....ALSO UNLIKE AMERICANS...EUROPEANS SEEM TO HAVE MUCH BETTER MEMORIES...THAT IS THEY TEND TO REMEMBER THE THINGS THAT ONE HAS DONE,IT'S SIGNIFICANCE AND THEY NEVER LET THEIR IMPORTANTS FADE!

THIS DOES NOT HOWEVER MEAN THAT THEY TREAT PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT BETTER THAN THEY DO HERE IN AMERICA...THERE IS ALSO A GREAT DEAL OF PREJUDICE AND RACISM IN THE UK...IT MAY BE SEEN IN EVERY FACET OF LIFE...

IF YOU WISH TO SEE IT!

I HAVE TO DISAGREE!

i am in the military and have visited the following european countries:england, france, spain,malta, croatia,serbia,greece. I can say with the exception of france, myself and my friends were treated very well, especially from the females. MALTESE, AND CROATIAN WOMEN LOVE BLACK MEN. as far as living over there, i doubt they want us to stay, however most are not as racist towards african americans as they are towards african immigrants and arabs.

SORRY TO SPOIL THE DREAM THAT YOU SEEM TO BE ENJOYING..BUT I HAVE BEEN THROUGH OUT PARTS OF EUROPE SEVERAL TIMES...MY AUNT AND UNCLE HAVE A HOME THERE AND IT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN AMERICA...SOME PEOPLE ARE NICE AND SOME PEOPLE ARE CLEARLY PREJUDICE...AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE NICE...ARE NOT NECESSARILY UN-PREJUDICE THEY SIMPLY REALIZE THAT YOU ARE A VISITOR AND WILL BE LEAVING SOON!

*THE WHOLE IDEA OF THE UK BEING A HAVEN OF PEACE AND A PLACE TO TAKE REFUGE FROM THE EVIL RACIST PRACTICES OF AMERICA IS LARGELY A MYTH!

*AND YES I HAVE BEEN TREATED WELL BY FRENCH,ITALIAN AND GERMAN WOMEN...I WAS TOLD THAT I WAS A BEAUTIFUL MAN...BY A YOUNG FRENCH WOMAN (MARGO) THAT I DATED FOR NEARLY A YEAR...THAT I WAS A SMOLDERING FIRE OF SWEETNESS AND SEXINESS BY AN ITALIAN GIR(ADRIANA)THAT I DATED FOR SIX MONTHS...AND HAD PLENTY OF HOT TIMES WITH A BUXOM GERMAN GIRL...BUT NONE OF THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PRICE OF TEA IN CHINA...

THE UK IS STILL RACIST AS HELL AND THEY STILL HAVE ISSUES WITH AFRICANS OF ANY TYPE OF CITIZENSHIP...INCLUDING THOSE THAT LIVE THERE!

Good point Moor, but if you notice I specifically asked about African Americans, not people of color. One of my friends is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Marseilles, France. According to him, the city is the French equivalent to our Miami or Orlando, FL. with all the immigrants and what not. The city has most North African immigrants who face a lot of racial predjudice and assimilation issues inside French culture. But you and I both know that an African American and an African anything are not going to be treated the same way. I've heard of places in Latin America where AA's face some discrimination...when they are mistaken for native Blacks. When the speak English and people recognize they are Americans, people change thier attitudes real fast.

I've heard this time and time again. I've also heard that the Australians are hospitable towards AA's, but somewhat hostile to the Australian Aborigines and South Africans living there. We have a fairly large Moslem Croat community here in Jersey and they seem very fond of AA's.

The Europeans created America so how they claim they are somehow better or less racist than the racist mess they created?

Well, here you won't have to worry about violent crimes because f your race. There are enough racists, but I never heard of a case where a person coming from another country to be injured or killed because of his/her race.

There are people who consider Black persons to be very cool. There are some IR, and even if not everyone is very happy about this idea, again, from what i know, nothing violent ever happened.

Through, yelling racist slurs on the street, or making fun of someone because of his/her race isn't considerated as serious as probably is in USA. People tend to ignore this.

And, there are countries which are, of course, much more tolerant: UK, Sweden, Finland, Holland, France, etc.

Sorry but you blacks do a fine enough job of selling the idea that you are a nuisance to society and that whites are to blame.

There's a possibility I was too young to understand it even if it was staring me in the face, but my perception is that it's a lot worse here in America.

Yeah, see that's funny. I cussed this chick out in the Dominican Republic because she had made a lewd racial comment before and chuckled about it. I can remember her face like it was yesterday, she was so dumbfounded! The sad part was that afterwards I realized that she was surprised at my hostility because she was so used to making the comment to a Black Dominicans face, she couldn't understand that she had actually said something wrong. It was especially funny too because Americans either White or Black don't consider any of the Hispanic peoples south of the Rio Grande to be technically "White". Apparently, to people in Latin America if your nipples are pink that somehow means your a European!

Yes much better. But there is some discrimination, just not as much. I married a European guy and never looking back. I would love to move to Europe, possibly Sweden, Germany, or even the UK. I hear the pay lawyers much better in Luxembourg.

Heh heh. It's interesting because that's the difference between our experiences. Everywhere I have been, the Whites apparently think all White Americans are trifling racist pigs. They are always quick to point out "HERE, IN THIS COUNTRY, WE ARE NOT LIKE THEM! YOU WON'T FIND ANY RACISM AND YOU CAN GO WHEREVER YOU WISH"! White Americans are so trifling that even other White people don't like them and want to be lumped into the same category as they. Also, as I stated before I've traveled in Latin America, and Anglos and Latins are not very fond of each other (note sarcasm). You could beat the shit out of a White American in the middle of the street and the natives will break it up, but won't arrest you or anything. It's quite funny to see how unbelievably race friendly Americans Whites become when the are outside of the U.S.!

Don't pay his silly ass any mind. He's one of those guys who will tell you that the Jim Crow South, lynchings, institutional racism, etc. are all fabricated distortions of American history even though they all took place like...75 years ago! LOL!!!
