Tensions between the two communities on the East Coast date back to the early 70s when African immigrants started flooding predominantly black areas I believe.

Funny thing is, I have lived in Maryland, NY and briefly in DC but never really paid attention to that.

As my 1st experience with Africans took place in France and not the USA, despite negative remarks made by Africans about Caribbeans, I came back to the U.S with a pretty good image of Africans

So when I would meet a chick in Maryland, where there are hella African chicks, I never thought to myself "perhaps she has a negative image of AAs"

I rather felt like I was still in France where people are on you just because you're AA lol

Although now aware of the problem, it has not affected my relationship with African people

Well you cant blame us Jamaicans do not give themselves a good image.

at least now we know how stupid you are. You are just like the rest of the idiots who believe the stereotype that all black people are uneducated, stupid, crackheads, good for nothing, lazy, gangsters, ghetto, trash. All these stereotypes were created by the media to remove all the sympathy of the slave trade which was controlled largely by jews. Now they have stupid people like you believing that all arabs are terrorists.

I find that some africans try to put AA's down, to forget about their own problems, or what they are lacking in their own country, its why many come here in the first place probably, this I align with a inferiority complex, or a person who is insecure. Your coming to a county with black people already here, not the other way around on average. I had to talk to my ethiopian associate about this. Also, the hate is from ignorance on the AA part, because many dont know much about africa, and even if we did read books about it, thats not enough. Our culture was stolen from us, when the few africans sold our ancestors off, and when they were kidnapped. This is the root of the problem to me, people who looked a like, they sold each other off.

stop talking out of your arse,as a wm you know nothing. How many tribes can you find in soweto s.a,?many..but people co exist ,build families and intermarry just fine. Do you think when i go to nigeria i would be disliked by the yorubas,igbos etc for being xhosa,zulu or tswana?

Stop generalising sht you know nothing about.
