i see very little social interaction between africans and other afro-descendant groups. and i've never seen or personally known of an african/aa couple.
not saying it never happens cuz there are some athletes who are half african/aa. but for the most part (at least from my perspective) africans are a lot more isolated than other blacks in the states.

What you don't understand about tribal is, we are not talking race based tribalism.. I am speaking in terms of blacks not joining together and being tribal against each other.

If black Americans become Tribal against blacks in Africa, it is a direct result of tribalism displayed by Africans against AA's.
That's not how I see. Aas can be friendly if they wants to be but majority are not friendly. Africans are more friendlier than aas, most people will tell you that.

Actually aa/african marriages are low compared to other black marriages. I do agree africans get along with caribbeans then any other diasporians, especially since many are in Ghana and ethiopia because of the rasta movement. Africans and black latinos dont connect see eye to eye, africans dont see latinos in general as a gain and dont value education and latinos have self hate about anything black and african.

What i have seen though is most of the AA/african marriages are influenced by green cards and if they are not mowt are liberians(due to their history of having AA ancestors), south africans, sierrea leone and etc.

In general africans tend to connect more with other foreigners and etc like caribbeans, indians, arabs, europeans, and etc

Please.

You don't think I've read articles about African immigrants getting punched in the face and bullied for no reason by your "welcoming" AA's?

You think the reverse of that sh*t would happen if an AA went to Senegal?

There is no such thing as being "tribal" against anyone.

That's the equivalent of saying your being "cultural" against each other.

It makes no sense.

It's you, just like most people who haven't bothered to pick up the dictionary, who don't understand what tribalism is.

Being "tribal" means to organize a people mostly on the basis of kinship. This kinship generally has to do with a perceived shared ontological origin, a shared historical or cultural connection, or some other perceived shared features that connect the two entities.

That is what tribalism is.

When people identify with each other on the basis of some perceived mutual similarity or another.

You can't be "tribal" against any one because being "tribal" has nothing to do with being conflictive, which is what you and Bigfool think it is.

You're both wrong.

Those marriages are low though, disaster loomis has a point; their are ten times more caribbean/AA, black latino/AA marriages then AA/African marriages

That is just the way it is

for example. i never see africans in aa churches, clubs, or playing ball with aa, or casually hanging out. though aa, caribbeans, and afro-latinos hang in these social circles fairly regularly.
for example there are no caribbean churches, or churches that cater to just the caribbean community, but there are african churches. even though africans are much smaller than the caribbean population in my area. the isolation stands out.

True, many Ghanians, Ethiopians, nigerians have their own churches( in maryland, atlanta, chicago, texas, MA, NY, and other states) and play soccer with other africans. I dont think it is isolation, I just feel they prefer to mingl with their own.

Haitians for example, many have their own churches, many dont go to AA churches, or mingle and play basketball and clubs with AA's

I have noticed, greeks, africans, russians, asians, haitians have establish their own churches in Americain and prefer to pray their own way and with their own.

My mom is aa/cameroon and she mostly went to cameroon churches, my fiance is nigerian and only goes to nigerian churches

we have a lot of haitians in the boston/metro area. and they do socialize with aa. but they are more isolationist than other caribbeans.

I can definitely attest to this.

Regardless of the region they originate, practically all the Africans I've met were very friendly, and usually very easy to converse with.

But I guess that's just because I like to talk about Africa and most AA's don't.

Why not, africans are recent groups to the us and our population is not that high.
