^You're quite ignorant if you think no slaves were taken from congo.
Dont worry- as soon as the nigerian oil slows down more of your people will come looking for you.

let's not even go there.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by Zairois: 5:28pm On May 09, 2011|
Ok exactly why argue here when you can just go google it.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by Zairois: 5:43pm On May 09, 2011|
BADAGRY google it, and realise there is a difference between Democratic Republic of Congo and REPUBLIC of Congo.

They have never been to Africa but yet they generalize like there is no tomorrow. Listen l personally know a lot of black Americans and Carribean people that would love to come to Africa.They adore our culture, love our women and men and support us. Stop trying to bring your separatist mentality here.

first of all i must say that u are d one being arrogant by thinking u r better than us jus cuz u hav more wealth n are well fed while we starve.
second, u AA's are just plain jealous that inspite we dont have nothing, we have a rich culture, tradition and our ancestral beliefs which u have lost. why then are so many other AA's coming bak to Africa to learn Orisha and other traditional faiths u want our stuff and then u bakstab us. We dont need your education on tribalism. We fight amongst each other cuz its almost always an issue of christian vs muslim, but it so happens dat its not jus a few individuals here and there, but in fact whole tribes either side with one or the other. Therefore the main religious issue is ignored and all the blame gos on[i] tribalism[/i]. U AA's r jus plain jealous dat u dont have tribes or culture or anything of dat sort. U follow ur enslavers faith and now u r trying to impose dat on us. what witchcraft r u talking about, eh whenever u see a Pagan worshipping his ancestral/traditional deities, u immediately brand em as witches.
i can understand dat its not cuz of ur fault that u culturless. But that doesnt mean dat u spoil our identity n culture. either u see n help us enhance our beliefs n traditions or jus get d hec.k outta here. im case u noticed, its a Nigerian forum where u celebrate OUR culture , NOT for AA's who have come here to defame n denounce our traditions n try to impose der cultureless culture on us.

Why do africans swear black americans have no culture lmao. Our culture is seen worldwide. A huge chunk of american culture is black culture lol
Religion- Gospel, the black church which is way different than other american churches
Food- Soul food,cajun food. Black american food is better than anything in africa
Fashion- Black people basically wrote the book for urban fashion. And no im not talking about men wearing their pants under their Bottom
Music- Black music is superior to anything in africa. BA's basically created modern music (rock,randb,hip hop,jazz,blues,pop etc)
Our leaders are the biggest in the african diaspora
How do africans figure black americans have no culture?
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by A.D.M.(m): 4:32pm On Jun 18, 2011|
I am really getting sick and tired of people like Kony, MandingoII, and Pagan 9ja and their divisiveness and stupidity.
1. All groups of people on the planet have a culture including Afo-Americans. As Kony mentioned (it's the only thing I agree with him on and not just because I'm AA), most modern music such as jazz, hip-hop, house music, and rock music was started by AAs.
2. All this "I'm better than you because of (insert nationalism and/or ethnocentrism here)" is nonsense. It reminds me of dumb white nationalists and their bulls---.
3. Don't you understand that it doesn't matter what country you're from? Black is black. And to far right groups whther it's the British National Party, the National Party in France, or the Council of Conservative Citizens, if you're black, they won't look at you as equals, even if you are from another country. Look at the anti-Muslim sentiment in Europe, for crying out loud.
4. In order for the bridge to be built, there has to be understanding and a willingness to listen and learn from each other. But I guess that's too hard for some.
5. Kony, MandingoII, if you don't like black Africans, you why are you guys here? I'm here because I wanted to converse with others from other parts of the world who look like me.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by MandingoII(m): 5:35pm On Jun 18, 2011|
yeah, yeah yeah. what's new?
you might want to start in AFRICA. Cause you mofos hate each other wayyy more than an African American ever could.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by PAGAN 9JA(m): 6:15pm On Jun 18, 2011|
thanx for givin me d list bro. u AA's have a culture, but no offence intended, but since u asked for it by insultin ma traditional brothers n sayin dat we practice witchcraft, lemme tell u dat your culture is a hybrid/borrowed culture. its NOT original n this is fact
1.Religion: whether its a black church, a white church or even a rainbow-colord church. a church is a church. again, borrowed from the enslaving european creatures.
2.Food: Cajun is not AA. it is a food started by descendants of French colonists, deported to Louisiana from Acadia, Canada.
3.Fashion: wat fashion, eh r those baggy pants n stuff your traditional clothes LMAO!!! thats again borrowed from the europeans. all u guyz did was to ""edit"" it a bit. make it wider n stuff.
4.Music: theres again the same case. u guyz just improvised on western music and added sum of ya own flavor, n this resulted in wat we know today as hip-hop, blues, etc.
and your leaders are the biggest in the ""diaspora"". Even Africans have great leaders such as Mandela, Kofi Annan, etc.
so as i said before, derz no point in despising and acting lyk the saviours of us Africans. we dont need any more saviours cuz it seems that saviours always tend to bring bad luck to us ppl. first jesus n muhammad, den d euroean fellas (as one quote said, the white man has come to save the African man from himself), the arabs and now u rich and haughty Afro-Americans.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by k.o.n.y(m): 6:48pm On Jun 18, 2011|
You are way off. First of all i never said anything about africans practicing witchcraft.lol
1.I never said black people created their own religion. There is no black american god we worship. Many of us are christians or muslims JUST LIKE MANY,MANY AFRICANS. All i was trying to say is that the black church is like a culture in itself along with Gospel music. Even africans have been influenced by gospel music
2. Cajun is most definently black/creole american food. My focus is more own soul food anyway. But cajun food is black and its birthplace-new orleans is a city full with black culture
3. Dude fashion is all about mixing things and making it your own. Blacks are more influential than africans in this department either way you slice it. Blacks have had a big impact on fashion well before baggy pants were in style
4. Wow you have no idea what your talking about. Blacks created western music dummy. Western does not automatically mean white. A huge chunk of western culture is black american culture. Silly african
Nelson mandela is the only person from africa worthy of being seen as a leader, or someone that AA's would be impressed by. Martin luther king is still more important and influential than he is.
There are more blacks than africans in positions of power in media,politics,society,government,business etc
If it wasnt for black americans what would people of the african diaspora have?
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by A.D.M.(m): 7:55pm On Jun 18, 2011|
Folks, ignore the known as kony. For some reason, possibly boredom, he or she likes to make divisive comments and threads. He or she has been doing this since the beginning. I don't get why.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by PAGAN 9JA(m): 8:18pm On Jun 18, 2011|
first on first, by you, i meant the AA ppl in general.
- it does na matter wat u worship, BUT U MUST NOT EVER BRAND AFRICAN TRADITIONAL RELIGIONS AS WITCHCRAFT OR EVIL SATANIC STUFF. this was wat Mandingo n his ppl did, si it was in reply to him.
-Cajun is not black, NOR was it from new orleans. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cajun_cuisine
-before men wore pants, they wore leaves or they kept der genitls in wooden cans. AA's didnt exist bak then.
-western music was not created by blacks, unless Mozart, Beethoven, Doug green, etc wer black.
ur martin luther king copied all his ideas n style from Mahatma Gandhi n he even admitted it.
ppl of d diaspora are african americans, so wat dya mean by ur laste sentence. i find it sensibly sensless.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by k.o.n.y(m): 10:24pm On Jun 18, 2011|
1.I dont think black americans know or care what religions africans follow. I've never heard a fellow american accuse an african of following witchcraft. Someone might joke on hatians with voodoo or something but not africans
2 This is from the link you gave me[i] "is the style of cooking named for the French-speaking Acadian or "Cajun" immigrants deported by the British from Acadia in Canada[b] to the Acadiana region of Louisiana, USA[/b].[/i]
These people mixed and matched cuisines with the blacks of new orleans and baton rouge. Even today many many cajun cooks/chefs and resteraunts are black
I think your focusing on the cajun thing a little to strong. I really just threw it in their just to add it in. In reality only blacks in NO eat cajun. The majority of blacks eat soul food or southern style cooking which is pretty much mostly american.
Blacks cant account for what styles were popping in the 1600s lol. All i know is that black americans have had a heavy influence on fashion in the last 30-40 years or so. Way more than africans
Black music is the blueprint of modern music. Motzart and beethoven arewhat we consider classical music genius. Rock,ranb,jazz,blues,hip hop,pop were created from black americans
Your an if you think mlk copied gandhi. Mlk was his own man and was facing a different situation. He was inspired by gandhi, its silly to say he copied him
Black americans have a bigger gdp than the entire continent of africa
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by PAGAN 9JA(m): 10:45pm On Jun 18, 2011|
1. plz i have had many a personal experience before, so much to d point that they start callin us devil-worshippers. thats when i felt hurt d most, when in reality, dey r d true devil worshippers, goin after whors n drugs n stuff.
and didnt mandingo n another fella here on this thread say that they r here to rid us of Juju n witchcraft n tribalsim Juju is nuthin but another name for Paganism.
n Africans do have their own kida fashion. its just d traditional sort, if u know wat i mean.
also u may say that mlk didnt copy Gandhi cuz of sentimental reasons, but the truth is universal. Mlk carried out protests, non-violent demonstrations, hunger-strikes, etc.,, stuff dat was never experimented before except by M.K. Gandhi.
anywayz i dont care wat other stuff u AA's do, but when u think that your religion and your ideas r much superior to our religion and when u treat us lyk a bunch of hics (as u say) or ignorant tribesmen n illiterate bufoons without any knowledge of anything, n when u call our faith, dat of satan, and when u make fun of our Gods, its wat really sets me on fire n makes me angry. i hope u understand.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by k.o.n.y(m): 11:46pm On Jun 18, 2011|
1. The ignorance between the two goes both ways. Africans have a'lot of viewpoints on black americans just the same. I dont understand why you were hurt by a select few though. Trust me black americans have tried way harder to connect to, and understand africans than the reverse. Black americans have defended africa and africans numerous times. When that african immigrant got shot 40x by the police in nyc-black americans were out their protesting and having rallys n ish.
2. I dont see how any sane person can describe mlk and what he did for black civil rights(that includes you africans) in america, as copying gandhi. That defies logic. Blacks were protesting to gain equal rights, we were not copying gandhi. Thats absurd. That doesnt even take away what he accomplished and the things that he achieved
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by odumchi: 12:53am On Jun 19, 2011|
The problem with many AAs is not theat they are all born ignorant or what-not, but ti is because of their behavior. African American culture is counter-cultural and distructive to African culture. In a society in which fellow blacks call each other "Nigger, sag pants, direspect elders, run away from home to join gangs, fight each other, disregard education" nothing good is sure to come out. Such values are counter productive to African values, not to talk of Nigerian values which are mostly: "Language, Culture, ethnicity (thnic origin), tradition, filial piety and etc".
Havin been to the US, it pains me to fill out forms and when asked for my ethnicity, the only options are "Black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native and other". None of these are my ethnicity. I am not an AA, and last time I chehcled Black was a colour not an ethnicity. I am often tempted to put down "Igbo" as my ethnicity.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by PAGAN 9JA(m): 2:14am On Jun 19, 2011|
Odumchis is riight. We r afraid dat u might bring this kinda culture to our Nigeria, encourage intertribal marriage, make a mockkery of culture n try to hybridize it n stuff. its harmful to us. but we can still be friends.
Im so proud of you Odumchi. You are the first person i have seen here who is truly proud of his actual origins. Forget your color, forget u r African or even Nigerian or even christian. First and foremost, YOU ARE IGBO! Igbo is wat make different from the rest because its the blood that flows in your veins.
your last sentence literally brought tears to my eyes. atleast der r some ppl on this accursed planet who still care.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by k.o.n.y(m): 3:43am On Jun 19, 2011|
Ya are ignorant of black american culture. The same way 12 year olds with ak 47s,huts and spears,starving kids, bombed out and depleted villages is not all of africa. Its the same thing with black americans, dont judge us by stereotypes
And african culture is ten x more destructive than black american culture
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by Mrs.Chima(f): 5:44am On Jun 19, 2011|
Wow. Let me shed some light on some of the things that many of you may have not had the pleasure of seeing.
There WAS an Akata brother who came on the Romance section praising Nigerian women and stating that he wanted a Nigerian sister as a wife. A few moments later this AKATA brother was attacked and called a kitty because he believed in treating women like a queen. I was floored at the responses he received simply by saying that women needed to be more respected AFTER seeing a few AFRICAN women complaining that they do not receive the respect and are treated as subservants. Interesting.
There are two Akata WOMEN who have professed their love for Nigerian men. One of them just recently married her boyfriend a few months ago and the second one is engaged to a Nigerian man.
One akata woman confessed that she did not want to move to Nigeria because of what she was told and may experienced but out of love for her Nigerian husband she moved to Nigeria to be with her husband to support him in school and deal with everything that comes with struggling as students.
This site may been designed by a Nigerian man who clearly stated that this is for Nigerians and Friends so therefore you will encounter people who are not Nigerians registered to this site. There are Asians, Hispanics, Indians, Jewish, Arabs, Americans, and host of other nationalities. There have been offensive statements not coming from JUST Americans but NIGERIANS about their OWN country/people.
We need to keep it real that if we are going to scold one group for being offensive then we need to scold other groups for being offensive. Do not be a hypocrit is not cute.
One last thing, we have to remember this is the INTERNET and just because someone say that they are AFRICAN, NIGERIAN, FEMALE, MALE, OR AMERICAN doesn't mean that they are.
How can you tell if the OP isn't a male? You don't know. Some of these "AA" that you claimed OP that are "hating" on Nigerians could very well be Nigerians themselves starting trouble just to get a rise.
What do you say about those TONS of Africans that are imitating Black Pop culture? There is a Nigerian on this site who thinks he is the next JAY Z with a fake diamond in his ear.

You got anything against IGBOS?
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by odumchi: 2:13am On Jun 20, 2011|
I was about asking that
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by pleep(m): 3:05am On Jun 20, 2011|
Nah, Igbos are my bruvas litteraly.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by Mrs.Chima(f): 5:22am On Jun 22, 2011|
Okay. Just checking. (putting down pot of boiling egusi soup)
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by ababda: 9:26am On Jun 22, 2011|
PAGAN9ja, Eventhough i am not AA nor west african, your statement about AA music being western is dead wrong. I am a fan of the late Ali Farka Toure, who is considered the king of blues of Africa. Please watch this video and hear him explain the connection between the music of Mali and Mississippi blues.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by PAGAN 9JA(m): 10:55am On Jun 22, 2011|
Ali Farka copied the AA style of music and tried to mix it with Malian music. everyone noes dat.
|Re: Why Are Black Americans Here to Hate? by ababda: 3:26pm On Jun 22, 2011|
I have a awful feeling PAGAN 9JA, you purposely want to be ignorant and unwilling to admit you are wrong! If you want to try to convert your people to the pre islamic religions, i suggest you change your attitude, because you definitely need to humble yourself!
Here is what i found over the net, please read it with a open mind.
Ali Farka Toure
Malian guitarist Ali Farka Toure has often been referred to as a missing link between the blues and traditional music of West Africa. Toure, who dismisses any reference to his music as "blues," has always maintained that the traditional music of his native Sonrai people was brought to the United States by slaves, and that this ancient music is the source of American blues. Toure has described in numerous interviews how he listened to the work of such American blues artists as John Lee Hooker, and upon hearing these recordings he was struck, not by any influence of the music itself, but by the similarities of these modern American songs to the traditional music of his people. He told London's Evening Standard that he "recognized it as African music, as the music from my region."
