what country has the largest black population

http://en.m.wikipe dia.org/wiki/Siddi There are black people in India. The Siddi. They have been in India for many generations. I am a black American and when I went to North Africa I was repeatedly asked if I was Indian. That would not happen if there were no blacks there.  (Thursday Sep 11 | post #98)

Why do black women wear false hair.

People are stupid to make assumptions about people. I wore wigs for years because I had a medical condition that caused my hair to fall out in patches. The wigs I wore were shorter than my real hair so I wasn't adding length but covering bald spots. Also my hair IS natural and I like my curls thank you very much. When you see a black woman wearing a wig you don't know her situation so stop judging and shut the hell up. Might happen to you.  (Mar 10, 2014 | post #1722)

African neighborhoods

Might be hard to get people to stick together who aren't related. I have been told there was an attempt at emminent domain years back to build a road but the family successfully fought it by showing this was a historically black owned area since the Civil War. Generally, land is ONLY bought and sold among family members. Example My cousin died and my uncle bought his property. I would buy before I let outsiders buy. Back in the 30s when black people couldn't read and write well white people tricked some of my family out of some of their land because my family didn't understand the tax process. Gov seized the land and sold it for almost nothing.  (Dec 17, 2013 | post #34)

African neighborhoods

My family has owned hundreds of acres of land since 1870s. where they live it is almost all black and all family. Quiet. No problems. I don't even lock my car door at night when I visit. No one is stupid enough to go in there causing problems. My best friend's family lives in a part of Maryland where for decades the land was primarily owned by black families who knew eachother. Now whites and strangers are moving in because farm land is being sold for subdivisions and she isn't happy. Also some of the other cultures mentioned have their problems too. Mostly with gangs and people being exploited.  (Dec 17, 2013 | post #31)

Mexicans are taking Blacks jobs!

I have the kind of job that requires a college degree and high level English writing skills so immigrants are rarely hired. They wouldn't hire anyone with a thick foreign accent either. Out of 200 employees, we have one person with Mexican heritage. She is not an immigrant, and she's in the lowest paid position. I make way more. No need for food stamps. Actually, my great grandfather was afro-mexicano but my family didn't like him so we don't promote it and we didn't take his name. Most Americans can't understand that some Mexicans are black. My boss just thinks I'm a black person who speaks Spanish. Anyway, I has a lot of Mexican immigrant friends and we are as close as family. I wish them well and they do the same for me.  (Dec 16, 2013 | post #8)
