I just hate when people imply that the slave trade benefited AA's, because it took them out of the incorrigible conditions in Africa; Yet they ignore how the centuries of imperialism, that went along with the slave trade, contributed to some of the poverty prevalent now.

btw Why is it bad to say that most or all white men are racist, but it's ok to stereotype/categorize them as good husbands? All sweeping statements like that are asinine.

Well I see that Blacks are still hating each other here. Now I am not going to point fingers, but the hate is spewed on both sides Africans and AA. Well, everyone I am into this process of getting ready to visit Africa. Yes, that is correct.....I am excited about this trip. I am going to West/Africa/Accra Ghana. I am not for sure the date as of yet due to it depends on the USA State Department. It seems it is taking longer than the norm too process a passport these days. So I am going to upload my experience here and on YouTube so you can share this with me. Yes, everyone is invited. For me this is a personal spiritual journey to give closure. So I will keep everyone here informed. Oh by the way I will be hosted by a African Muslim family. I am a staunch Apostolic Christian, this is going too be so much fun meeting them. They are so excited that I am going too visit and I can't wait. I will definitely keep everyone posted and if I decide to blog about my travel.
Have a good trip,myself I will certainly go to west Africa(I still live in central Africa,GABON),maybe I will pass by GHANA,I don't know but the best council peoples told me is :put yourself at the same level of the natives.Don't act superior to avoid them as enemies...we are all blacks then we should act as their brothers whatever the way they live...To be welcome you should be humble.peace.

This is in response to somebody up there(to damn lazy to look up the persons name but...)one, I am Nigerian specifically African-American cause my parents were born there and I was born in Houston, but all African-Americans dont hate Africans. I have never been called names, called ugly (shit I know I'm fine, not being arrogant its the truth ),or looked down upon. Like for real why don't we show love here, we all have the same blood (in a sense). But I do agree on some terms that American blacks and other races as well can be arrogant and ignorant at times. Why? Because we tend to go by what we hear and see that we forget to experience somethings. I am talking about when races say the AAALLLL of Africa is poor. That pure bullshit. Ive been to Nigeria on vacations and that place is urban, beautiful and well advanced. People have this sterotype that ALL African are poor, uneducated, starving, unattrative filthy people sitting in dirt under a mudhut with bugs flying around they heads, that is simply not the case. Sorry to burst your perception of things (not really). Like for real seriously spend 5 minuted of looking up beautiful advanced pictures of Nigeria or people or (whatever country) and youd see that. But we Africans can be arrogant about AA's too, I aint taking one side cause I live in both worlds and cultures.

I am an African American and I find most of these comments very offensive and demeaning to Africans, African Americans and humanity as a whole. First not all African Americans hate Africans I am one of them. One cannot make sweeping statements about a whole race based On a few people they have met from that race. I have met some very exceptional people that happen to be African, and I have many friends that are in fact African born and raised. Second all it is too much pressure to expect one person to represent and entire race. It all boils down to fact that you should judge someone by their character, integrity and actions. All I can say is Shame, shame, shame. I try to focus on what unites humanity rather than divides us,These statements are ignorant and further perpetuate stereotypes and prejudices. Remember when you judge some you must also hold a mirror to yourself. We come from a proud, resilient race and this kind of talk is disgraceful.

I know right???? I could respond back negatively to their IMMATURE comments but that wouldn't do me any good. I think the ones that conversate negatively on here have some sort of SELF ESTEEM issue....so yeah.
but who is making immature commments? because the person who posted that is clearly not african as he mentioned " he likes africans better than aa" that is a dead give away and he has dropped many clues also.

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.
lol so they hate africans because of what they have been taught? But they were also taught that what they are is just cotton pickers,ugly n words with low i.q. They were taught that they would be not be able to amount to anything. My point: people choose to follow the teachings of someone who hates them because they believe them. These are just excuses. Malcom x was a an aa why didnt he take those teachings in.?

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.
nice post.

the things that i have read on this thread are absolutely crazy. First of all, i do know AA's who look down on africans, but i doubt any AA thinks that any african is better than them. I don't condone it, but that's true. That is a gross misconception. If you are african and an AA has treated you wrongly it's because they look down on you, ignorant yes, but true. And look at all of the ignorant, hateful things that are being said about AAs on this thread. It's ridiculous. If you want to keep it really real, if it wasn't for us, you wouldn't be able to come here and take advantage of all the rights that we earned, fought and died for. The so-called contempt is sorely misplaced. I would want no part of a people i hated so much. I do have african friends and colleagues, but thank goodness that they are intelligent and enlightened. People who have the sense to know that all of this bickering and divisiveness means nothing in the grand scheme of things.
i agree with some of the things you said,but most africans are in their own countries and dont even care about coming to america as there is nothing for them there. That is a response to:if it wasn't for us, you wouldn't be able to come here and take advantage of all the rights that we earned, fought and died for.

<quoted text>you want to believe that AA's think that you are better, but i don't know one single aa that thinks an african is better than them. And i think you know that too. Not saying it's right, but just because you get upset because they look down on you because of negative stereotypes, don't convince yourself it's something else. AA's are known for their pride in themselves, it's evident everywhere. For the most part, all of our lives, we've been taught that africans are primitive, disease-ridden and backward. And we've been taught this by white america. Of course these things aren't true, and it's really sad that that the ones that do would look down on africans, its truly ignorant.
havinpg grown up in south africa,i think it would be ignorant of both parties to start with stereotypes,i know for a fact each group can post for 10yearz. Oprah was one of the people who came preaching goodwill in this country about aa because she saw that they even her werent really welcome because of stereotypes. My point:i think to all people asians.whites black,etc you only get to really know how people feel about you once you go out of your comfort zone.

Stop all this talk about Africans coming here to benefit from the struggles of AAs. I applaud your struggles. We don't come here to collect welfare checks, stay in section 8 housing, or benefit from affirmative action. We work hard and earn what we earn on merit not race. Thate We are more educated than any other group in America - White, AA, Chinease, Indian etc. is not because of the 1960 civil rights struggles. We earn our keeps folks!!
