I don't understand americans, especially black americans, about 75% of the topics here are about race, IR marriage, either by them or white trolls. The reason I ask is because many black americans make fun of black africans & caribbeans about them sucking up to the white man and all. This is not made up I have seen many examples of this, where AA will makes fun of africans because of it, and they are the same ones at the same time that want to marry the people they hate & acuse africans of emulating. I don't get it, their the only black people obsessed with being with a white person and having mixed babies. I never heard foreign blacks talk like that, just check out caribbean forums or african forums like ghanaian, ethiopain, or nigerian forum topix not one topic about race, all about their culture, making money, and meeting their own people for business or marriage. The people they make fun of are actually the ones that are least likely to marry outside their race. Although in the U.K. most black caribbeans are married outside their race, you don't hear them saying their doing i to get mixed babies or because they hate their people. Or how about the black africans there majority of them there are still with their own people & haven't succomb to what is going on with AA's. So whats their problem.

That is a lie lady. Not all aa's are that way I'm not. Why in the hell would I talk about my own damn people after all I am african as well just because I was born here doesn't make me less of being an african woman. I am proud of who I am and where I came from I am aa of mende descent.these people you speak of are trapped in a slave mentality to hate themselves they are ignorant. Ivhave never dated a white man nor will I ever I only date my own kind. I have a son by an ibibio man (nigerian).

I guess that if you are born a kneeger, that you will remain one all your life. You cannot change your skin color, but you could become a productive member of society, rather than remain a parasite.

I'm talking about you were sounding like it was all aa's or something. The same goes for the africans from the motherland it goes both ways not one sided.

I'm just guessing here, but maybe it's cause foriegn Blacks have grown up in a homogeneous soceity and therefore race was never an issue. Just like race would not be a big issue for a native born Chinese or Japanese person. Does this make sense?

Racism is not a african concept.it is an invention used to mistreat people. It is a reality that is put before black whenever that want to forget about it some always happens to remind them. Hang around people ie whites and 9times out of ten they will say something to make you realize race is an issue. their deferrance to you. A gesture. and irreflexive comment. I saw a child cut in front of an old black woman as if did not exist almost knocking her down. These things remind you of race. As Jack Johnson the boxer said" I tried and tried to forget I was black, but they would not let me, so when I whooped the in the ring, I didnt let them forget it either".

Not necessarily, the Caribbean for ex. is Not homegeneous - they live with diverse ethic/racial groups for hundreds of years. So race is not a Big deal to them (they "move forward" to survive instead of living in the past like Americans)

Joining the Peace Corps was one of my ambitions in grade school then I went to Junior High School and was constantly called whitey and honky along with facing a variety of physical confrontations by both whites and blacks. The more violent ones were from black kids, including the threat of death. A massive depopulation of the human race would be fine with me. A new species might do a lot better. Then again it might go on and on forever.

Don't ever scream racism again ... that white people are racist, because aa's are the most racist people on earth. Filled with hate and violence. You wonder why others avoid you? That's why!

The biggest reason is because africans and caribbeans don't come from a race based society or country. Also they come from countries where they are the majority but AA's are raised in a society where they are not the majority and they were raised in a race base soceity; as a result you see the differences. At the same time AA's did put some of that upon themselves for the simple fact they put each other down in exchange for other races, and that's soley with them because you don't see that with other minority communities like asians, hispanics, foreign black groups and etc because their culture is number one not westernized culture. So you see these foreigners instll these cultural values on their children from toddler age; so when they grow up you don't see them with these issues. When it comes to AA's their culture is sadly about race from their history of slavery and segregation till now where they have light skin vs. Dark skin debates, worshipping non-black women over AA women, many of them blame racism is the reason they can't make it in society and use as a crutch the white man this the white man that. To AA's race is their priority and greatest nightmare but to other minorities especially foreign black communities being poor and not successful and educated is their priority and greatest nightmare. It is a psychological battle AA's deal with everyday and as a result they feel they no more of how to act black and not; and if you don't act like them they accuse you as being a uncle tom or acting white. That's why you see them having clashes with other groups. To AA's speaking correct english and getting a education is being the white man but to foreign blacks like africans getting a education, speaking correct english, and being successful is a honor and what they are taught at home is expected from their family as good. It is sad but that's the way it is. Theirs racim in America but AA's allow it to consume them but foreign blacks ignore it and don't allow it to deter them from their goal, sonthose are just why you see these differences between the communities

It's called identity politics. See white people form political parties and then divide the minorities up into groups and make them do battle for votes.

That was a good explanation. I'm a foreign-born mulatto from a Latin/Caribbean country and despite growing up in the USA, my family held strong to their Catholic Latin/Caribbean roots and this was how I was raised in America. The issue of race was never something that we focused on.

I never think of it, but I will say that when I do think of it, it is usually when I'm around African Americans, because most certainly, there is going to be at least one, if not more, who will bring up the topic of race. When I'm around whites, other non-whites (other than African American) or Hispanics (my people), the topic of race is never brought up--Besides, there are far more interesting topics to discuss.

It's frivolous to debate over something that you have no control over anyway! It's childish to argue over nonsense such as race and who's better or worse, or crap like that. I wish certain African Americans could get it together and realize that all of their constant bickering over race & color is useless. They are only holding themselves back from a life of contentment and happiness by continuing to allow themselves to be plagued by history.
