      African American choose to be dellibarately ignorant, about Africa in the same way. We Africans choose to be ignorant about islam and its harmful effects on our continent! We are all caught between a rock and a hatd place and just seeking to catch a Break from Life !!!

      Bruno, this is another example you are miserable, confused and ignorant person. You consisently talk negative about Nigeria and being nigeian. You kiss white man’s ass all day long and wish you are not black. . But you want to claim to be one now, you are the one familiarizing. Blacks are from Africa anyway, their identity was stolen from them by their own very brothers and sisters who chose to sell them for a token of change. Africans particularly Nigerians are arrogant, condescending for no reason, get off your high horse. Go fix your messed up attitude, countries first
      most Africans don’t even know their history and are extremely ignorant about their own people and the damage they have caused to their fellow Africans. Ask an African what he or she knows about civil rights movement, the key players, jim crow era, brown vs board of education, destruction of black wall street in oklahoma, madam C.J walker the first woman millionaire in America etc they know absolutely nothing just the stereotypes.
      Africans should be the ones reaching out, willing to educate because they are the one who caused the division.

      Zambia, South Africa, Togo, Ivory Coast, Benin?! These r just a few of the countries I have traveled to. Your stereotypical comments show you are just as ignorant as you interpret African Americans to be. And for the record, I wear Dashiki, Mudcloth from Mali, I will rock a gele, and Kente cloth from Ghana along with my Chicago Bulls cap. I’m a proud African American that loves and appreciate where I come from and have so much love inside that I can’t hate. I have so much love, I’m gonna send some to u, lol.
