Obviously Black Americans are the worldwide dominant black culture.

Just curious as to the populations of all the black cultures and the ones that are larger than black Americans.

Large groups of blacks from other cultures even with to merge into our culture.

Our women are the most beautiful of all black women as well, and our men are the strongest.

Also question to black Americans, why do we have such little interest in other groups of blacks when most of them look to us for culture, men and women to Merge with..etc?

And final question to black Americans, do you consider a relationship with a black person that is not black American an ir relationship?

AA culture is a little more diverse than other groups imo which is why I prefer it more than others. From 1st grade to 11th grade the majority of people I lived around were Mexican-Americans, save for food(obviously lol) I didn't really have an affinity for the rest their culture. The reason I believe this was, my family would frequently visit our extended family in central/east Texas(Dad) and Louisiana(Mom) and that part of my family (moms especially) are rooted in AA culture.

IR means interracial, so no. Although I bet it could feel like one if the non-AA "Black" person isn't Americanized.

''African Americans'' form the single largest black ethnic group in the world while the USA holds the 7th largest black population (black Americans).

You're Americans. Americans in general have little interest in other groups compared to other nationalities (eg British, French etc). An effect of being the sole superpower which alone holds 25% of human wealth in a country the size of a small continent. American society has grown to be kind of insular because of this to the point some come across as very ignorant thus such stereotypes as ''Stupid Americans'' arose as well as being highly arrogant of course.

Most black people do not look at black Americans for culture or to merge with otherwise black Africa (>80% black race) would already be at least westernized and less tribal which clearly isn't the case

Today it's mostly a significant percentage of urban black youths as well as all races of urban youths around the world who indulge in the ''Hip Hop'' subculture that's associated with black Americans for obvious reasons.

Very true. Black Americans definitely aren't as fascinated with other black cultures as they are with us. I think there was a push a while back to try and get black Americans more interested in other black cultures, but as you stated our culture is already too rich and diverse.

I lived in Texas as well, and loved the Mexican food. I agree, not interested in their culture in the slightest, but they have great food and beautiful women.

Believe it or not... And you probably noticed this in Texas as well, but black American culture is embraced by many Hispanics as well. Our culture definitely sets trends and is a world wide force of influence to be reckoned with.

I don't think a lot of these cultures have the ability to be "westernized" as you put it... But I've seen behavior mimicking black Americans on the small scale these people were able to.

Old shirts with our rap groups and athletes, mimicking out old athletes.. Listening to old hip hop songs... Using slang we used many years ago... Etc... Like there's a delay in out availability to them, but what they get they mimick to the best of their ability. When I was in Somalia, they had "bloods" and "crips" American clothes from like the 80s. Very odd.

I think that as they are exposed to it and have access, it swallows them up.

Of course tribes are still tribal because most probably have little access to black Americans.

And stupid Americans is a defense mechanism for insecurity. Obviously with the technological edge and advancements from America.... We're not stupid. The arrogance is also another defense mechanism.

Okay. Fair enough.

How can you explain the disproportionately high negative numbers and "targeting" then?

Why is he trying to divide black americans and other black diasporans. I am a product of the black diaspora. My mother is African American and my father is from the Caribbean. So stop trying to divide and conquer.

Give me the physical numbers and events you are talking about. For example if you are saying many black Americans watch television state actual number of the ones that watch tv and the number of black Americans as a whole..

Example:

40 million total black Americans
35 million watch tv

Good post, very interesting indeed. I have heard others say this before as well. Some even going as far as to say many black Americans have Asian features.

Why not unite humanity instead of a mere social construct?

Any Caribbean person can claim African American because they are black and are descendants from west African slave so you shut up and stop telling people you don't know who they are.
