Is it true that africans dont like african americans?

if so thats another point that we blacks dont like each other. besides the colorism division. is it jealousy that we have a better life in americas do they hate us for not reaching out to them and condoning our heritage more than we do now. i understand that blacks have a certain self hatred like if someone calls you african people always take offenise to it. or people always asume all africans have h.i.v. etc etc. if so i can understand why they wouldnt like us african americans. but i want to know is it something else behind it and if it is true

Africans I have met have no concern for African Americans aside for African tycoons paying them money to perform in Africa - I do not hear of Africans abusing or commenting on Africans Americans.

However I have seen countless movies of African Americans making racist and almost pro-white supremacist comments on Africa - it is even obviously on this forum - the HUGE joke is that your ancestors and you are more genetically related to them than any other race on the planet.

African American is not a culture or a race but the descendants of enslaved Africans - the same like us Caribbeans and any other group of Africans - we have nothing that makes us a people - we have a social condition but no culture.

We are called Jones, Mcdonald etc when our ancestors were Nkrumah, Lumumba, Osei etc

The names we wear are property - why you think Africans would be jealous because we are still seen as THE WHITE MAN'S property and live in his country is beyond me...

dislike is mutual. A lot of African-Americans also dislike Africans.

My Nigerian friend told me it is because NONE of the people that call themselves Africans ever set foot in Africa, so they feel they have no right to label themselves as such. American born black people are Americans, just like everyone else. That IS where their birth certificate says they were born. PLUS Africans DO NOT act or think anything like American blacks do. They especially hate it when black Americans start talking about Africa or try to call them brother or sister. Most Africans are like this.

We usually say we are black a bad description of ourselves. Highly melaninated beings is a good description.

Actually, we also get irritated that the only things african americans talk about is racism, in their movies, comedies, everything. We have faced more slavery than african americans...we were colonised and brutaly abused, but we learnt to move on and forgive. We do have tribal issues, but if we put it out in everything the way african americans do, whats left of us would bring us nothing but ruin. I think our attitude towards our suffering is different.

The answer given to me by a South African was this; Blacks in this country are no more african than the Americans of english decent are English. If you have been in america for generations, you are American not African anything. Made sense when I opened my mind to it. Why do whites not always refer to themselves as let say " Irish American" or "Canadian American"? We have just as much right to being proud to be American as them! Dam man, the whites elected a black president. We always vote democratic so the difference was the white vote. Let just be proud to say American, and CLAIM equality THRU our word and self definition.
so what

as an African American I really wish we would stop calling them names like Africa booty scratcher. We need to embrace Africans. The real enemy are Jamaicans and whites.

Someone else corrected u that africa is not a country. I will correct your wrong belief that africa is poor. 10 years ago, the list of the richest blacks in the world was dominated by AAs (led by queen Oprah) and then a bunch of entertainers who should not be role modle s for young people. 10 years later, that list has been totally taken over by Africans, the richest african's net worth is more than 8 times richer than the only AA billionnaire (still Queen Oprah). African millionnaires who have set up tech companies, banks, food manufacturing and real estate have now overtaken your entertainers and the forecasts are that there will be more african millionnaires. apart from the super rich, the middle class in africa is now growing. there are about 300 million middle class families in africn countries earning an average of $35000 plus. this is forecast to increase to 1 billion middle class. compare this to the total population of the US at this time (315 million).

we africans have great economic and social mobility which you will never have. but stay in your usa, we actually may not want you to come and confuse our youth who are respectful and want to get a good education

african event managers are also 'buying' your entertainers now. Chris Brown was recently paid $1 million to sing at an event in Ghana. some Nigerian guy paid Kim Kardashian an equally obscene amount of money to give the intro at an event. just the beginning of the tables turning ...

This is a lie Africans dont hate African Americans. African American culture is huge in Africa. In SA every second city kid speaks using African American slang. African Americans though do tend to be completely ignorant of Africans and Africa.
