It is at work that I and AAs collide in the most vicious of ways.
I will tell you a story--2 in fact.
When I first moved here, me being a naive African, I found myself gravitating towards Black neighborhoods in the mistaken belief I will be among "my own people". Long story short, it got so bad that I never took a seat when riding the subway because there always was some skanky, loud-mouth who can't mind his own business. You take a seat and they start talking to you about Football. You politely tell them you don't follow football and that's the beginning of the nightmare. "Ah, so you from Africa?". "I have heard that you people don't drink milk?" And it goes on and on and on....
Another story:
After working for a certain company for 5 years, I felt it was within my right to apply for a higher position in the Company.My application was successful and although I was not specifically a supervisor, I was handed a list of names of people who would fill in for me whenever I was away.It so happened that I needed to take a day off and so I approached one of my designated substitute co-workers.She fiercely resisted being told by me to fill in for me. I reminded her that I ddin't make the decison to be a sustitute and that she also was given the list but it seemed this had been rankling with her for a long time and she was just waiting for a day like this.
One lasting quote from her was, "Why should I led by him, not the other way round?". And this, in front of OUR Manager. The co-worker wasn't reprimanded or anything and another replacement was duly found.
So I am done.Finito!!
You're story is no different than when AAs go to Ghana or South Africa expecting to embraced by their own.

Everyone has stories, geez.

It's funny that the ones crying the most are white people who are notorious for exploiting and plundering Africa. Please keep crying. Cry me a river.

China doesn't own Africa, it is trading and building it up. Both China and India have done more for Africa than the west ever has. The west has done nothing but exploit and plunder Africa.

Buy up land in Africa yes your culture is productive and can bring many benefits for both Africans and yourselves but buying the whole continent would be impossible today.
I just hope for the day that you figure out that you're not the only blacks in the western world.
Sadly I believe if black westerners did migrate to Africa they'd look down on Africans and we'd create another Liberia. Heck if I was in charge of DR Congo I'd deny the natives a right to vote as it seems they like stupid warlords.
We are the only Black Westerners that aren't immigrants.

The typical American Negro has little to no net worth whatsoever. I don't think that the African nations will sell their land for food stamps. Not even for the 50 percent that most Negroes sell theirs for so that they can buy some of that cracked cocaine. LOL.
LMAO, you have to be black to know about those 50% food stamps, you ain't fooling nobody.

You think we would mix with you baboons and have our daughters come out looking like Alek Wek? Instead of the Meagan Goods, Angela and Vanessa Simmons, and Beyonces that we produce now? Ugh, you must be developing delusions from hunger.

You should have stayed in Africa, why are you coming into our cities and our neighborhoods in the first place? You were wrong about being around "your people", the only place your people are found is in the slums and in the bushes. You will not find "your people" in glittering, successful cities like Atlanta.

I think you will make more investing in tourism in Africa, more so than investing in resources.
Africa is not safe for investment because it is so unstable. That is why the Chinese exploit you all like cheap whores instead of really investing in you - they know that you are not capable of carrying on a complex economic relationship. Every group of people on Earth knows this, but AA's are the only ones who continue to discuss "investment" in Africa because we pity you people so much...

Since black Americans are entertainment giants around the world. They can start off with art. They can invest in nollywood and other arts. Second black Americans can easily control tourism in Africa. I will start with these two.
Are you serious? Nollywood is sub-par, poorly made slapstick that is not worthy of Afro-American investment. We have become "entertainment giants" through producing quality artistic creations, something Africans have failed to do for over 3000 years now. Bitch, please...

I don't think Africa needs your dirty investment. Try to improve your own quality of life and work towards getting a slave descendant to run for office because the current president doesn't descend from worthless farm tools like you stupid low iq losers.

You really have a hard time comprehending. We were talking about investment opportunity in Africa. Anyone who is smart will know that current between Africa and china benefits Africans and Chinese. You are fool who only listen to what CNN and fox says instead of picking up a book.

You are a fool because apparently people who knows business knows that Africa is one of the best investment spots around the world. Read a book, u ignorant drama queen.
