Blacks have a 'variety' of Cultures. There is no single Black Culture.

I think he means African-American culture.

AA culture consists of "soul food" (I call it slave food), Jazz, Classic Soul, Funk, and many other music genres. It consists of traditions passed down like beating their children with belts, telling their children to come in when the street light comes on, the black church, the way black men get their hair cut (fades, caesar's, flat top, frohawks, etc) That in a nutshell is black... ooops African-American culture.

A Culture is a way of life that is usually consistent (Not a Trend) such as style of music, style of clothes/Fashion such as specific patterns or designs, religious/spiritual beliefs, cuisine, art, social structure or etiquette, & Mannerisms. etc

Yet saying all that you did not come up with a detailed description of African-American culture. Just something vague.

Based off my detailed description, I would say African American culture is diverse & it's hard to reduce it too one element. That's why some PPL ask what is AA Culture. There are & have been many elements.

Perhaps one way to approach this would be to list how so called AA culture differs from White Amrican culture in general...if there is much of a difference,no?

Culture is not a color.

American Culture
African Culture
European Culture

Culture is not based upon the color of ones skin. Culture is based on the standards that are set as the norm in different countries.

Also all AA's do NOT eat Southern Food. Depending on the region, you will find some AA's eat foods that is NOT eating in other regions of the County such as Gumbo. Also there are specific styles of music in certain regions which is specific to certain regions. You have AA Festivals which are only popular in certain regions.

Black American culture is can be very diverse:

From west coat to east coat, to the southern states and the north. We have rappers, people singing gospel, soul, funk, country, and jazz. In fact, Jazz was originally a large part of the Black American experience. There are writers of music, fiction, and fact in the African American experience. The food and the styles also are unique.

The original black African natives had no culture, all they knew were beating on their bongo's, chucking spears, putting dinner plates in their women's big bubba lips & bones in their big flat shovel noses, eating jenkem, eating each other, falsely believing that witch doctors healed them, committing savage rape on their offspring, eeking & ooking & dancing the Scooby dooby do & just generally being the wild savages they were until Tarzan finally tamed them until our forefathers enslaved them, shipped them here to America & gave them our culture.

So black culture is mostly music?

Black culture = Raised by your grandmother. Living on welfare. Joining a gang as a young teenager. Teen pregnancy and fathering several children with different BW. Spending most of your adult life in % out of prison.

If its so diverse then it's not a culture. And all of the things you mention are indulged by whities as well. I would venture to say there is not that much of a significant difference culturally between middle callss Whites and Blacks. The differences tend to correlate more with income than with race.
