hello am an african and i would want to know why u african american hate us africans.Sometimes am being called a pouch monkey or a spear chucker by some african americans coz of my african heritage.I asked an african american the other day why was the reason most of his compatriots hate us and he said maybe it might all boil down to the slave trade thing.So am asking you why the hatred on africans and why do u think all africans are dirty smelly and uneducated?
Funny enough the white americans seem to be nicer and civil when the meet non americans and the jamaicans are cool as well but the african americans think the africans are inferior to them..wtf

I don't know what planet your from but its the africans from africa who think their better. My mom actually had an african dude tell her that when she was in the doctor's office. He made it seem like because he was born and from africa that he was superior to african americans and that he was more original. My mama had to put him in his place with his nasty attitude.

Interesting question. I haven't actually witnessed this but I heard this enough times that it probably has some truth to it. Please don't care what others think of you.

Getting back to your question perhaps it has to do with the fact that you're foreign? No offense but it seems to me that humans tend to group themselves into "us" an "them" and it doesn't really matter to many that you're the same color as they are. It's nothing really unique to AAs. South African blacks have been known to be very xenophobic to other black immigrants. Many British are racist towards other whites. Many Italians are racist towards Romanians even though both are Mediterenean people.

Please don't pay attention to those people.

Most non-african blacks in the West have been taught that Africans are backwards, ugly, poor, diseased and so on. I disagree that africans think they are superior, I have seen too many times where afro-americans make ugly jokes about Africans, meanwhile, while whites don't like blacks period, whites are less likely than afro-americans to tease Africans.

yup am an african living and working in the uk.Am currently doing my medical residency(just out from medical school)the funny thing is that most african americans i have come across still think all africans stink,are uneducated and always on the look out to steal their dollars.Just imagine i was chatting with an african american lady on the net and when she knew that i was an african it was like oh africans stink,they are beggers blah blah.But are feel we are blacks and we should love ourselves.its an irony that its the white americans who are more nicer and civil with foreigners.

Not all whites hate blacks, yeah there are prejudice whites out there but not all of them hate us. You haven't even met them all to say them.

well its a few whites who hate black ppl but then i think its not cool if african americans think africans are inferior afterall we both(african americans and the africans) suffered racism frm the whites in the sense that the africans suffered colonialism and the african americans suffered the racial segregation policy in 1960s america

I've had similar experiences with some African-Americans, not all of them are like that but those that can get ignorant they can really be ignorant, I was in a African-American community and luckily didn't experience that but you do find that those that think that we Africans think we are better than them are the ones that tend to be ignorant and call Africans all kinds of names, they make us Africans feel uncomfortable to the point of wanting to leave but I have never heard them hating on mexicans the same way they do on Africans but brother, it is a minority

I am an African American female and I am appalled at the bickering I see posted here. I have always wondered how Africans felt about African Americans. In college, I had many African friends and I always felt welcomed and part of the group. Of course, they spoke many more languages than I, so at times I did feel left out of conversations. Then, I had some African friends claim me as family and tried desperately to connect me to their countries. I never asked, "How do you feel," because I thought I knew.

On the other hand, I am envious of our African brothers and sisters. As African Americans, I still feel as if we don't belong and are displaced. Our African counterparts have a history and a connection to the homeland that I wish we African Americans could have. They have the language of the fathers, the customs, and the family connections. They have a home. A home that many of us will never be able to return to.

Here in America, we have practically nothing. All that was not taken from us, we have had to give up in order to belong. And in many ways we still do not belong.

I would love to see Africans and African Americans reunite as brothers and sisters. A virtual homecoming.

What is really sad is that the Africans are really so much better than the AAS.They have more class,better morals,work harder when thy come to America,and are brighter.The AAs are just very spoiled and dumb.That is what I have seen here.They really are the most Fuked up of all blacks.

my aa friends at work think i think i am better than them because i dont drink,smoke,call girls bitches,steal at work or because i am in my second yr in college at age 18.so maybe aa's and africans have different standards of what good life is.

Afficans who travel from Africa think that the are superior to African-Americans; in my opinion. I have encountered an African who "TOLD" me that I do not know my heritage. Yet, they come to America and enjoy the freedoms the ancestors of African-Americans fought so hard for. From the humiliation and indignation of slavery to the Civil War; from the Emancipation to the Civil Rights Movement. Many African Americans died for the right to vote, fair-housing, against job discrimination, and for equal education. The things that Many Africans have come to this country to enjoy and take advantage of...but, look down on American born blacks who are now fighting a systemic enemy.

I agree with you.He does have brains and class.And why is it that a lot of Africans can speak more than one language?Where as in America they can only speak one??They have a lot to learn from the true BLACK AFRICANS.I adore the Africans but not the AAs...
