I would just like to know if there are some Black Americans who have gone out or are currently going out with an African woman. If you are dating an African woman or married to one, have you noticed any striking cultural differences? What are your common points? What do you like about her? And what makes your relationship strong?

There is no such thing as African-American, only African.

i doubt they're willing to date one that looks like the stereotype african. those features are looked at as unattractive in African American culture

so if the african girl doesn't look all black then i'm sure the black guy is game.

And what do you mean by "stereotype African"? I don't need to watch the Maury show to see AA stereotype.Or the Jerry Springer show is the only one that shows unattractive AAs?

You cannot speak on behalf of all African women lol, you can only speak for yourself. The thread is not for African women who don't like BA's but for BA's who are in relationships with African sisters or who would like to meet an African sis, tu piges? lol

The subject is "Black American men and African women", not unattractive BA guests on the JP show lol. I know that some of you guys will be tempted to turn this forum into the usual AA vs A soap opera but please, let's make an effort to remain on topic. Are you African? If so, where are you from? Perhaps i've dated a women from your country :-)

Yes, I like Guinean women of all ethnicities, peul, sousou etc. Malian women of peul ethnicity are fabulous lol. I like Black Mauritanian women, Djiboutian women, I like the thick and dark chicks from Burkina Faso. Gabonese women of myéné ethnicity and fang,(the dominant ethnic group of Gabon) are fine

You are new here, just stay a little bit longer, then you would understand why she said that.

I take it you are mouslima, judging by your name &#1575;&#1610;&#16 07;
if you are, assalamou3laykoum wa ra7matoullahi wa barakatouh oukhty
Ah ok, I just posted there, I hope I didn't offend you, I tried to be objective lol. As I stated in the other post, I don't have any problems with African women. During my four year stay in Paris, I got nothing but 7ub/love from my African sisters lol and African brothers. I didn't know there were haters until I got back to the US lol because prior to my move to France, I didn't know any Africans, which is no longer the case of course. Anyway, with the African male, there are two types, "haters and brothers", voilà, with African women, it's all 7ub LOL

Lol, am not mouslima, no religion believe in Goddess (i mean a female side of God), but yeah the name is very ancient, i use it in mantras, not my real name though.

Many ppl here think that Africa is a giant country and generalised all Africans.

Btw am from the smallest islands state on the continental. Multi racial creole ppl, displace Africans within Africa.

I can see that u are aware of many cultures and tribes. That's cool u know what you are talking about.

So the hate among men are common in all groups.
The women make the difference. And you know how to deal with that, as a result you've recieved nothin but love! Genial

Ca alors!!! Je vois que tu parles français, d'où viens-tu? Ca me fait plaisir de rencontrer des francophones ici sur Topix, j'avais l'impression que la plupart des Africains qui viennent ici étaient de pays "anglophones". Mais bon, ce n'était qu'une impression, quoi, et puis, je suis relativement nouveau ici donc je n'ai pas du tout la prétention de connaître tout le monde. Le problème, c'est que souvent, lors de ces querelles saugrenues et caricaturales entre Africains Américains et Africains, les "haters" ne disent pas d'où ils viennent, ce qui fait qu'on ne peut que verser dans la généralisation. Au lieu de parler de tout le Continent noir, ce qui est tout à fait aberrant à bien des égards, compte tenu notamment du fait qu'il y a plus de 53 pays, je préfère parler du pays de la personne en question. Mais les "haters" se réfugient derrière le terme générique "africain", après on nous accuse de faire des généralisations grotesques et abusives. Sinon, je ne suis pas dans une logique de "guerre fratricide" mais de rapprochement intercommunautaire. Je m'efforce,à travers mes posts, de promouvoir une plus grande compréhension interculturelle car, il me semble que les relations entre les deux communautés souffrent d'une "méconnaissance réciproque" alors pour y porter remède, chacun doit consentir à d'énormes efforts. Ce que je reproche à la soeur tchadienne, c'est de ne pas pratiquer ce qu'elle prêche, de dire une chose et faire son contraire. Cette hypocrisie m'écoeure et je la dénonce avec la plus grande vigueur. Tu vois, ma soeur, la colère est mauvaise conseillère, on peut "signifier" son désaccord sans forcément se répandre en invectives contre celui ou celle avec qui on est en désaccord, quoi,ça s'appelle "pondération", voilà,ça va être le mot d'ordre. Il s'agit simplement de privilégier la raison par rapport à l'émotion. Je tenais également à rectifier le tir par rapport à un certain nombre de contre-vérités qui ont été dites dans mon post précédent genre "les Africains n'ont rien à foutre des Noirs américains, lol, c'est archi-faux, mon msn regorge de frères et soeurs africains qui s'intéressent véritablement à l'histoire et à la culture noires américaines. En France et ce n'est pas pour me vanter, loin de là, j'étais un peu la "star", tout le monde me kiffait. S'agissant des "haters" auxquels je ne cesse de faire allusion, ils sont aveuglés par leur haine viscérale et foncière, ils passent le plus clair de leur temps à déverser leur vénin sur des gens qu'ils ne connaissent ni des lèvres ni des dents. J'ai identifié la source de leur haine,ça provient d'une jalousie maladive, elle se manifeste par des sentiments anti-noirs américains. Ce mal les ronge de l'intérieur mais ça se soigne lol. Bref it is what it is, comme on dit, je n'y peux rien, sinon, je suis ravi de te connaître, je te fais un p'tit bisou à la noire américaine lol

In the past I had the pleasure of getting to know and dating several women of Native African Descent...all very beautiful and very intelligent...I dated a young lady from Uganda,Ethiopia,Ghana and a young lady from Senegal...and while there were some obvious...cultural differences...we found several things that we sharded alike..that is our perspectives on the world around us...I learned many things that I did not know and I would like to think that they did as well!

In the end I married the girl next door...an AA woman...but I have never had a problem with native African women or women from the Carribean...they have a special way/energy about them...and a view of the world...that is very alluring indeed!
