    IMO i don't consider someone an african american, unless they're family is directly from african and they just happened to be born in the states.....

    like if you got uncles, aunts, and grandparents that live in ghana, or mali or something like that and half your family speak their language, and you visit them n all that...

    that's an African american.....


    i ain't no african american.....kai is actually somali living in america....she's an african american......

    i'm a black american....everybody in my family from here....

    Definitely it should be apart of the culture and DNA samples show which tribes a lot of Black Americans come from. I mean how hard it is to put Nzinga, Mansa Musa, and a few others to show the wonders of West African history.

    2 different worlds
    different struggles though some can be paralleled
    different experiences
    now days we are different peoples due to all the admixture even in the smallest percentages
    Also "black" is a byword that was exclusively attributed to those of us in the USA that descend from the diaspora/slave trade that had our identity stripped from us.
    Africans still have their ethnic tribal identity so therefore it makes no sense for them to lay that aside and take on a vague identity attributed to us lost ones in the Western Hemisphere. If I knew I was a Fulani/Hausa/Igbo/Fon/Ashanti/Wolof/Mandink/etc etc why would I lay that aside in exchange for being called a vague term such as
    "black" or "African Amerikkkan", "🤬 ", "colored"

    At the end of the day... Igbo have their history
    Yoruba have their history
    blacks have our history

    Keep in mind that Africa is the most diverse continent on the planet so there no sense in lumping us all in together with them. Black is our new tribal identity and we have our own history to take pride in.

    I've never seen a black messican pero Cubanos and Afro-Brazilians still celebrate their African culture today.
    Celebrate isn't necessarily even the right word. Some of them still identify as African and their lifestyle is a testament to that.

    African American history is American history, they just relegate the appreciation of it to the coldest, 🤬 month of the year to put on the appearance that they really give a 🤬 about Black Americans.

    Yep

    Personally the more I learn about africa and its rich history the more perspective I gain


    Also the more I discover the more I feel a sense of kinship with the people there ...which I feel is important considering we share the same struggle with colorism, racism, etc

    So this makes segregated history acceptable or something we should be proud of?
