Black American's Making Fun Of Africans?

I just dont understand this. I am nigerian of course but I was born here in the United states. And I from their standards "dont LOOK african!!" I get this all the time, I know you guys know what im talking about. Alot of African Americans try to make fun of my people, until they realize that IM AFRICAN. I just dont understand the logic that many have. Do you guys know what Im talking about??

They dont realize how silly they sound?

So they werent BORN in AFRICA, but their heritage is there, matter of fact it is the MOTHER LAND OF ALL heritages?

I just dont understand why they look down on Africa?

You are a master expert in the art of beating behind the bush. What have you told me yourself

1.Stop trying to divide africans with hatred and ignorance right

You then go on to unleash a very hateful wrathful post against, wait for it, AFRICANS. lmao

I guess its all about unity, unless its with east africans. They are not exempt from your ignorance and hatred apparently. I wish i can find that post lol That was more hateful than anything i've said since i registered here. Your an i.diot

Someone not getting enough love at home. Its not that serious ma. This is the internet.

Your rant was single-handily worst than even my most critical post. You are a hypocrite. You dropped that whole african/black american unity "gimmick" at the drop of a dime. Im not the one promoting this pro africa thing like you are lol Yet you visciously attacked them in that thread. I forgot the name of the thread. But if i were to post here, people would see that its much worst than anything i've ever done. Like i said i never was on some pro africa bull sh.t so posting things i've stated and my threads are null and void.

Apparently to you east africans are exempt from this psuedo-african/black connection you promote. What a joke

Second- Most of your post take the side of africans and belittle black americans. Which is coonery, no matter how wrong you think i am. You love bringing up facts that try to belittle your "supposed" own people. Your a joke

Number 1- I can dictate you because you dont know me. I dont know you. Putting ones family in the situation over some nairaland ish shows how much class you really have. That and the somalia rant you did in the other thread. As anti african as im "supposedly" am, I never went in on africans like that lol. What a hypocrite and a joke

Number 2- Your not black american. If you are thaan your a fool who will insult your own people in favor for africans. There were plenty of times when you didnt restrict yourself to just insulting me, but b.a's as a whole. U are a nigerian/african. A real american wouldnt care that much lol

Number one: Who are you to dictate sh1t to me? As far as I'm concern your behavior points to how you were brought up, so yes your parents are at fault.

Number two: Its highly suspicious of how anyone that disagrees with you cant be black. Like I have told you I dont need to prove my nationality to you, because quite frankly you are a loser with a crappy excuse for a mother who reared you, no wonder you roam this forum looking for love.

Anyway, africans themselves are no better when it comes to interpersonal relations, so who cares, really.

To each his own.

None of it extends beyond the grave.

from where i stand, AAs [including carribeans] are the ones who go out of their way to attack and deride africans.

the only time they dont make this a habit is when they want something from you [eg a date or whatever].

lets stop lying to ourselves plz.

we all know how it is.

The thing is at least black americans make an attempt to learn about africa. Most pan africans have been american or caribbean. Despite the negative image africa has in the media, black americans make it a point to point out how beautiful africa is, how they were kings,queens and great civilizations there,ancient egypt etc.

What has africans done but judge us for lazines, off lil wayne and women shaking their @ss in videos lol

Imagine you were an Afro-American whose only exposure to Nigeria/Africa was what you'd seen on US television all your life.

Do you realise you'd be hard pressed to accept any African as a reasonable, intelligent human being?

Tell me, have you ever seen a well-built house in Africa shown on CBS News?

NBC News?

ABC News?

No. No. No.

Let alone banks, freeways, factories, airports, universities, or skyscrapers.

We all know Africa is filled with these things.

But the world in general doesn't know that.

It's a western policy of dehumanization of the black, by dehumanizing his homeland, using their media and education.

So you cannot blame an African-American, or any foreigner to Africa, who dismisses Africans with a wave of the hand.

They don't know the Africa that YOU know.

lol, Africans from age 20-30ish in America aren't the ones that think that all black Americans act like lil wayne. That's Africans 50+ who grew up in Africa at a time when there was virtually no social deviancy or ghetto behavior where they grew up. They are repulsed by anything even remotely ghetto, but I don't think Africans 20-30 in America are or that they claim all AAs act like lil wayne or like rappers. Maybe that's just your experience, but maybe you've only been around a certain group or you're getting this stuff from internet commentators. I've run into more Africans 20-30ish in America imitating lil wayne than I have claiming all black Americans act like lil wayne or like rappers, so I'm not sure I agree with this. I know Africans 20-30ish that are dating African Americans, and I don't fully accept your statement.

As for my experiences, as a kid my family was invited to a church service by one of my mother's friends from work.

At this church,an African American pastor, who had to have been at least in his 50s, made it a point, in a part of his sermon where he was criticizing intellectuals and atheists that reject Jesus, to make fun of what he called "back to Africa people" that reject Christianity. To drive his point home, he said that said that they should actually go back to Africa and go fight lions and cheetahs with the natives while being bitten by mosquitoes and see if they won't be calling for Jesus after that. That drew a lot of laughs. Africans have a good sense of humor though. My parents, who are Christian, also laughed. When I asked them in the car if they knew anyone who had ever hunted any lions, they laughed and said no.

This was in Houston when I was 12. (My family doesn't live in Houston anymore, but if I went back there, I could describe the church)

I also remember my 7th grade gym coach, a grown African American man (Coach Warren) calling a Ghanian kid in our class (Kofi), "King Coffee" "Prince Coffee" and mocking his "black African darkness" (he always stressed the word "African" for comedic effect). This was a grown man! 

I see why people found that funny, but it's pretty bad to see a kid being mocked by a grown man.

But I have had positive experiences with African Americans with regard to Africa as well, so I'm not making any conclusions based on a few bad experiences.

Happens all the time @ topic.

The africans who join them to gang up against their fellow africans, are so exceedingly s.tupid they dont even deserve a mention.

lets not forget AA is a general term for all non-african blacks, in this context.

When i said "grown" i meant africans from age 20-30 ish. And yes they do know who lil wayne is. And would you care to share your so called experiences

lol, did I read this right?

I'm going to have to call this bs. I've had multiple personal experiences that disproved this.

And grown African men and women don't know who lil wayne is unless their kids make a point of telling them who he is. Unfortunately, you don't have to watch TV to see black people imitating the mannerisms of people in "gangsta rap"

@ the topic, people make fun of other people in America. Grow thicker skin and get over it. Blacks will make fun of Chinese, Whites will make fun of Chinese, Indians, Hispanics, Blacks, etc., but I'll tell you right now I'd rather be mocked ten times in a row by an ignorant AA than deal with an actual racist from another group even once. Anybody who respects themselves enough can brush off mockery, but actual racism is much more annoying.

Yes it is true. Many black americans do make fun of african but primarily when we were CHILDREN. No grown b.american is going to make fun of africans like that. Whereas grown african men and women judge b.americans off of lil wayne.lol

It's actually quite foolish for both Black Americans and Black Africans to insult each other. To white Americans, who think "Yoruba" is the name of the sixth moon of Jupiter (Europa), we're both the same to them.

Exactly. They are quick to throw stones but will cry like tricks if the stones are thrown back at them.

You said it best: What goes around comes around. Karma is a mean Bottom btch.

I live in America it depends on where you find yourself and what you are doing in America and how you potray your country when I was in school we were few blacks in the class to be precise Nigerians we always make sure that we make excellent grades in at least to gain respect. In a nutshell if you are a failure they will laugh at you but if you prove to them that you are intelligent they will respect you.

It goes both ways. We look down on them just as they look down on us. It's like a taboo for an

African to date an African American let alone marry one. Same goes for them. Except the one that

grew up around African American, vice versa.
