You make an important point. What's the difference between "influence" and merely "copying"? When I visited France in the late 1980s I often heard Black French people (young ones) listening and boogeying to the tune of AA hip hop. But now I understand that there is hip hop in French created by French youth. Moreover, I hear and read that it's more politically conscious than AA hip hop today.(We once had Public Enemy, NWA, Diggable Planets which sang about injustices and the fight against injustice. But that's not common now, thanks to corporate cooptation).
Afro-French hip hop, though deeply influence by Black America, has a life of its own.
I'd say that you understand the difference between influence and "copying" perfectly. Respect to you man.

We're all adults, there's no hard feelings here. The only person angry is Romeo, and that has nothing to do with this thread..
And AAs don't mind other blacks being here, some of you are rather interesting and intelligent.
I'll take a good non AA over a bad AA any day :)
We're all Gods children... Some just a little more influential than others.
So in other words... people are just on here gassing...chatting wind?! I want to speak with or at least read things to enlighten me...this is just a waste of time, people talking sh!t just to talk sh!t!! This is no good!! Where the proper sites at!?!

"Crips" in Toronto would love a guy like you man. While the rest of us see them as wannabe punks, you actually acknowledge their identity as real.
So let me ask you this then. If a small town Canadian calls me a "rap star" and associates me with the international success of this genre, it must be because us Caribbean blacks in Toronto are responsible for making hip hop big in Canada? Right ? After all, there are Canadian rappers. Lots of them. I've seen Canadian hip hop videos being pushed on Muchmusic before. So I guess, when you look at it, the fact that hip hop is big in Canada has nothing to do with AAs. After all, if small town white kids learned to associate black Canadians with Crips because of what we black Canadians do, then these same kids learned to associate the relevance of hip hop in Canada with black Canadians because we do that too. AAs had very little if any influence at all. Do you agree ?
Hip-Hop didn't start in Canada and gangs didn't start in America.

Does this look like a people who want to be immersed in your almost non-existence culture? I beg to differ.
Anderson, you were not on point with this ridiculous assertion.
The West Indian Day Parade is a once a year annual event. The other 364 days of the year Caribbean blacks eat soul food, listen to R&B, and Hip-Hop, dress like and talk like AAs.

Look, no offense. But if I want a bw I have the most beautiful black women in the world to choose from, just like if they want a bm they have the most dominant black males in the world to choose from.
No offense to you all. Just accept what you have for bm in Britain.

We will fight until the last dead AA, on the soil God gave us.
So true, we definately aren't a cut and run people. Whether it was the Revolutionary War, Civil War or the Civil Rights Movement, we made our country and ourselves better at times when blacks were treated like sh8t in this country.

Why can't they have the most beautiful women to choose from or the most dominant men to choose from. It has to be the most beautiful black women and the most dominant black men. Inferior complex perhaps.

This is what pisses me off about the aas that makes the superiority claims. They think they are above every black groups but fall short of other races. I.E whites, layinos, asian and arabs. They are only better than other blacks. Smh

What isn't clear? The dominant culture wasn't the main point of the thread, I was just interested in numbers vs influence.

And as for AA women being the best looking, they are collectively.
.
I think Jamaicans being only 2 million and a third world country has more influence than any other blacks.

By being the best looking, you mean looking more caucasian( the european admixture ya'll are so proud of but pretend to hate what whitey did to your great grandma )?

Enjoy Japanese reggae. LOL!

Black Americans sit at no ones heels. That is another reason why we are the most dominant. The big bad white woman and man you all fear, we don't fear, not even the slightest.
This fear of white women and men that you have plays a part into your in effectiveness as a group.
I got something to say about this...i'm following the situation in mali...looks like the arab malians are killing and maiming the black malians in large numbers. This forced the french to step in. watching CNN they showed all these black malians with their legs and arms cut off by the arab mali rebels...lot of them were harrassed and threatened. some even sentenced to death because of their lifestyle. I'm thinking to myself "why don't the black malians get some guns and join forces and kill all these fkin arabs?"...it's almost like they're so helpless and defenseless. don't get me wrong, i think malian people are very beautiful, great culture, etc...but isn't mali supposed to be one of the historically great three african kingdoms along with ghana and songhai? How could they let a buncha arabs just come to their town or village and start bossing them around and cutting off their limbs and all? now they gotta stand by like children while the french come in and save them like superheroes. Did colonialism and christianity rob the africans of their potency as men? did it make them passive and take away their will to fight? You don't see that among african americans or caribbean people....the history of the caribbean, especially haiti, is the history of violent revolution...violent revolution is a GOOD AND GREAT thing when you're faced with an oppressor that sees you as less than human.

I think when it comes to entertainment like music, acting and etc Black americans lead in the world but besides that their influence is negative from 70% of african american women being single or them being obesied or their men are irresponsible(gnags, drugs, jail, and more), many baby mommas, and are chasing after non-black women over their own AA women, this has been shown on ABC, british media and russian media. I feel AA's have a ying and yang effect infleunce around the world, the entertainers in their community and athletes to a extent are liked around the world but at the sametime most people around the world wouldn't want to marry(except latinos) Black americans because afters the entertaineers and athletes most of them are a mess which is shown around the world(even some of their rapper entertainers).

When it comes to business and etc I feel africans have more of a influence then African americans outside America with people like patrice motsepe, and etc

What made me laugh about this thread is people never asked what AA's had influence around the world as blacks, they just made it a general statement and people started arguing back and forth in the thread, it's foolish.

You are right, arabs are not killing them in large numbers, then french has quenched it, BBC news has been saying since morning. I feel arguing with AA's about world affairs is a waste of time.

Lemme say have not heard of any murders committed by "arabs" against blacks in Mali. I have heard of a few amputation of arms on a few thieves or mistaken for thieves.

I'm in love with my Afro-French colleague....hopefully tonight happens. Two days putting in work and I've almost got her.

And there I was stereotyping them from previous experience.

She's of Jamaican + Martinique background and she listens to bashment, reggae mostly and some hip hop but she sure as hell doesn't copy ''African Americans''. I believe she represents most young Afro-French people also even though the vast majority are of direct African descent.

I can't lie her accent and the way she speaks French is sexy as hell! I always thought French accents on women sounded masculine.
