To many people especially those from the Caribbean, seem to ashamed of their African roots, why is that after all isn't that where their ancestors came from, I say all of us should really start embracing our African roots with pride. All Africans, both continental and diaspora should unite.

Remember the song by the late Peter Tosh, as long as you're a black man you're an African.

Your are totally correct but remember that it was greedy and treacherous Africans that sold our ancestors into slavery in the first place - so unfortunately many diaspora blacks will forever reject Africans.

This wound will take some serious healing!

All blacks people must stop reading or listening to history written with eurocentrism.Europeans people never will tell you the truth about what they have done to africans as people.They always will tell you that africans sold africans for slavery.You have to do your own&#65279; research and find out the truth.Whites people like manipulating other.
Most of us know quite a lot about what whites did to our ancestors during slavery and it was truly atrocious, what is less known is what role Africans played during slavery.

I have done research on this issue and have unearthed some pretty grim facts concerning Africans selling other Africans to Europeans as slaves...

Unfortunately this is a part of our history that we cannot ignore regardless of how much we would like to pretend it never happened, It did, and some of the Western African governments have long since apologised for their ancestors part in the sale of our ancestors!

What we need to do is learn from our past mistakes so that we are not doomed to repeat them again!

But what you don't realize is that Africa is the salvation for all Black people of the diaspora arround the world, they will never have the respect they deserve unless Africa became powerful and Africans,a respectful people.A tree without root is destined to die
I know exactly what Africa is but you would have a hard time of convincing many western born blacks that they should care about or be proud of their African roots, this is the reality of the situation.

There is still a lot of healing to be done between Africans and western born blacks, we have a long way to go but we will get there slowly, time will heal all the wounds!

@Rev..you are full of sh!t..you are no stranger to insulting urban Blacks..to you urban Blacks are just low life yet you claim you associated with what I consider some of the most notorious gangs in the UK...you was supposedly involved in that struggle and came out unscathed.

The struggle continues so why and the he!! would you then denigrate the very same people you supposedly grew up with?

Your head is so fu..cked up that you can’t see that you are part of the problem.

It confuses you why our women choose urban black guys as opposed to the likes of you LOL..I put your attitude down to a sheltered upbringing...your probably not even Jamaican descent..IMO your Parents are from Ghana...and you are a LIAR.

You bloody fool..white elitists have succeeded in separating whites and blacks...if you go back to slave days whites and blacks were practically in the same boat...in fact black were treated better than the Irish/Scots.

Why do you think white welfare recipients have got it into their heads that they are better than black welfare recipients?. There are far more white welfare recipient in the US than blacks..however whites seem to think black welfare recipients are dragging your nation down...it was all designed to keep the have-nots divided to avoid a rebellion.

If there is a division amongst blacks its of our own doing..that sh!t has unfolded on this forum ffs..we are at each other’s throats...the white man hasn’t caused the divide between urban and suburban blacks..we caused that.

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

Black pseudo intellectuals don’t impress me one bit..all they seem to do bicker amongst themselves and fu..ck all gets done, and they wonder why they can’t get Obama on side.

So the answer is we need to drop the race based politics..if Obama focused on race he wouldn’t be in the top job. Obama has opened the floodgates to like minded Black politicians..good luck to them I say...we will get there slowly but surely.

This is what western Blacks like you have been reduced to... dreaming of the Motherland.

Try moving to Nigeria where there are over 400 languages..see how far you get there...I’ll wager you’ll end up depressed after a month.

You don’t know sh!t about Africa, Brazil or the Caribbean. I’m assuming you are from Cleveland, Ohio?. LOL.

@KandaDogon...you are not even aware of the competition that exists between all those countries you mentioned.

If you are American then you need to get your own house in order first before you even start to talk about far flung countries..you get me?.

That cum bye yah sh!t will not cut it..you have to bring soething to the table...you get me?

Sweetie I’m not angry..I’ll just never get to grips with that Black unity [email protected].I’m a firm believer that we are all competing with each other...makes life more interesting that way...like Manchester City v Manchester United..we live next door to each other but highly competitive..I like to think we have put are violent past behind us..there will always be those pesky upstarts though.

On a personal note I find Nigerians where I come from distant, Ghanians warm and friendly and Kenyans slight in stature but vicious..I say that becuase my pub landlady is Kenyan and she is vicious.

Yes indeed all black people are African, whites born in South Africa are still European.

I wish for African unity everywhere and and end to all division.

@ Real African..The current system has been formed around keeping us all divided...that includes upper/lower middle classes and upper/lower working classes (blacks and whites)

==========

@boy latino...Shut up you taxi driving, council flat dwelling, fufu munching fool...the border police has you in their cross-hairs. If you are so found of Nigeria take your sorry azz back there then.

This is why I'm so conflicted with Africans..YOU for example..YOU say blacks in England live sh!tty lives yet here you are in England.

IMO..Jamaicans have never sold out..we stay true to ourselves..Jamaicans are naturally assertive. Conversely Nigerians are just all mouth..assertive within the black community but when the Whiteman looks you in the eye you crumble.

Maybe that is why Nigerians don’t own a bean..the Whiteman controls Nigeria’s formal economy, and Nigerians control Nigeria’s informal economy which is supplied by Indians, Chinese and Whites.
Maybe that is why you are so damned bitter.

@boy latino...I don’t see Jamaicans or Black Americans risking their lives to migrate to Africa...Black Americans didn't even take the advice of Marcus Garvey at the height of racisms in the US...they stuck it out...or maybe realised they were being hoodwinked.

You have to admire Black Americans for their humbleness..they don’t even realise how much influence they have..we have to actually spell it out to them...hence this and other fu..cking threads.

I use to sport a dashiki in my teens though but it had nothing to do with Africa..it was just ‘cool’..look at me LOLOL.
