Do Africans Call Each Other 🤬 or Any Name Derived from a Racial Pejorative?

Can my fellow African native IC'ers speak on this issue if you please?

    @G Mack so is there something wrong with asking a question seeking enlightenment in the G&S section? Last time I checked we were grown folks and this is not the Jack Ass section.

    you want to enlighten? Let's talk about the ignorance of the IC community in supposedly "grown and sexy" section. Why ask a stupid question like this for the basis of "enlightenment" ?

    Does that sound normal to you? Afrikans in Africa saying "what's up my 🤬 " when they don't hardly ever put themselves in the same class with black folks in the US? Answer your own question man...that 🤬 doesn't make sense.

    @ Dr. Chemix

    I didn't make a statement. I directed a question to any native African IC people. I never claimed to do any enlightening I am asking for enlightenment. I didn't make this thread to have a beef and derail, but it's obvious you have some issue with me so if you want to discuss it then msg me and we'll go over the matter(s)

    Yeah a lot of African peeps call each other '🤬 ' primarily because the African American subculture is so influential but I'm not sure if any Africans call each other an equivalent to the pejorative in their native language.

    So basically, however we move, eventually they'll turn in that direction too?

    That's an interesting factor, that such a relatively small population of people can influence a much larger population.
