Here is an example of a cultural difference that AA think is totally unacceptable.

they have to change their types of clothing styles.
What I aam thinking of doing is finding myself a nice Somali girl or maybe 2-3 of them, and going back home to Somalia with them and get away from all this Ameridcan insanity once and for all. I think it would be paradise for me to live in Somalia on my retirement income. And I might just do that. I could buy a lot of land and grow a lot of goats on my pay.

Somalis are Muslims. That is their identity. No one else on earth is as Muslim as Somalis, especially not other Africans. The only ones who come close would be Mauritanians and Libyans. Libyans are 97% Muslim. Mauritanians are 98%. Somalis are nearly 100% Muslim.
Which explains why Somalia is so f'ed up.

Islam destroys culture and freedom. It is a blight.

And it is tsill a Somali town becuase that is the most dynamic African culture there, like it ot not. Somali is an extremely dynamic culture in any context but especially so in an Uncle Tom kneegrow context. So this is not about racial numbers, i.e. quantity. This is about cultural dynamism, i.e. quality. Somalis are quality people.
It's a “dynamic” culture... meaning it starts riots in highschools... LOL!!!

Dynamic like terrorism and piracy. And of course like the perverse misogynist cult of Islam.

Your attitude is about to change is a jew York second because Africa is the richest land on earth. Sooner or later that wealth will translate into power. And Somalia is the most strategically located nation in the world by which all trade between east and west must pas. They know this; hence Somali piracy.
At the same time, your precious white man it too afriad to send Somali refugees back to Al-Shabab. LOOOOOOL!!!
Jew York? Say that in my presence, boy, and I'll beat the antisemitism out of you. Your time is coming, Abdul. Your vile pro-terrorist and Islamicist attitudes are not acceptable in the USA.

You are going to be removed, boy.

You are tryning to be funny. Right? The men had to go outside the home and work to support the families. So they made certain exterior compromises to get jobs. The women did not go out. So they did not compromise. Thuis the women came to be the main insttituions that up held the Somali Islamic cultures. No other sisters on earth are as deicated and determined and serious about rejectingh the white mans's values and pr4eserving African values, especialy the Islamic values of sexual decency and modesty. Somalis hold these values more firecely than anyone else on earth.
The Hijab is Ordainede by GOD Himself. It is not alwasy required. But any sister who knows about The Quran will be happy to follow strict dress codes. And some of the men will do so as well. The only thime people take off Islamic attire is in =situations involving customer service in which they cannot wear it. I am semi-retirred. So nobody can make me do anything I do mnpt want typo do. And one thinbg I do not wabnt to is take off my Islamic attire. Often people will quit their jobs rather than wear western attire making them seem to be KKKristians. The sisters know that when they wear Hijab it announces to the thaty they are Muslums so do not waste their time with flirting and asking for dares. U=sually she uis married already.
That is the whole point really. Somalis have a sens eofd sexuall values. American slaves do not. They become sexually active at an early age and conduct themselvesd like h-words. Go by any high school aqnd you will see girls and boys sneaking off cam[pus to have sex. Or they will have sex on campus. SWomalis do not this So they nothing in common with the Ameericans. No Somali wants to be assocuiated with that kind of lifestyle. Instead, she will get married early and stay married to avoid the type of free sex that Americans are so caught up in. And oftentimes this involves young girls marrying older men or becoming second or third wives to brotehrs who are already married or even their own cousins.
I have seem Ethiopian sist3ers on the street. But I cannot say that I have ever seen a Somalia on the streets selling their bodies. Whenever they come out they are well covered. This is the standard for all Muslimahs. But Somlimahs uphold this standard more fiercely than any one else.
No, I am not trying to be funny, But if Somalis want to live in America they have to change their types of clothing styles.

It's not really any of my business, but I am just telling it like it is, Somali women should integrate their sons and their daughters into the African American society.

It will never happen. For one thing, that "clothing style" is not Somali alone. All Muslims dress like that to some extent. Whenever the Shweik performs his office as Imam, he usually takes off his street clothes and put on that "clothing style" Somalis do it because they have more sheiks and Imama than anybody else. I am wearing it right now and I was born and raised right here where I am sitting. Nobody can legally make me take it off. But I know many fools would like to.

LOL! When I first became a Muslim, I was traveling contractor with a bunch of Uncle Toms. Whenever I got off work, I would put on my Islamic attire and Pary in my room. So they stole all my clothes. It muist have been worth $1000.

Another time, I was riding Greyhound. They stole all my clothed, including an Arabic book. That costed me over $1000. That did not stop me. Nothing and nobdoy will stop me. I sim[ply bought new clothes. We import these clothes thereby creating jobs in Africa and the Muslim world. Besides, most of us own our own businesses so nobody can fire us when we go to work. Kinda funny, huh.

True, aas don't think about Africans. don't u find it sad, yet aas spend all their time worried about what Europeans, Arabs, Chinese and Indians think about them. Look at the numerous threads about "do this group like us". I guess africans are not light, or have those European features to be thought off. Just my observation

Do you think that is safe in a country with no central government, ruled by warring factions?

I cannot even walk to the bus stop less than half a b;lock away without worrying about my safety in this white man controlled country. But in Somalia, I would have enough sense to avoid fighting who ever the white man tells me to fight. In fact, if the white man tells me to fight a particular party, that is exactly who I will not fight. Instead, I would seriously consider joining who ever the white man is against. So I expect to be very safe and well protected in Somalia. All I would have to worry about would be drone attacks. I guess I would have to build my mudhut underground or something.

that's topix not aa. i'm sure we have a few paid trolls on this forum. you got ppl trolling 24/7 out here.

you know i ran into this article bout aa/african relations, and it was talk'n bout this west african mother who wouldn't let her 7yo kid play with her aa neighbor who lived next door, cuz they were 'AA'.

of course this is just one person. but you can't help but notice the extra attitude we sometimes get from africans. and now we got 'tribal warfare' going on in our public schools.

i've said this before, africans are the least compatible afro-immigrant group, with aa. cuz of their tribal-centric way of viewing the world.
