    When the **** stinks one must clean house and when the house is in order we can all sit down together and eat. Break it off in more ways than one and we'll recognize why they called us children of the sun, and never again shall we bow give up or run. Gyp well done. Indeed well done.

    this is crazeee.
    i just had the same experience with this nigerian.
    i simply wanted to hear the jargon of his/my culture but this
    half-pint kunta kinte'
    told me it was "private".
    i'm like why the hell did you just ask me what a certain word meant??


    african peeps like him i can't tolerate so that's when i assured him of his attitude and afterwards was disgusted at his punk ***
    so i definitely feel ya'..

    Well now...

    if you didn't know...now you do!

    What kills me the most is that "some" of the Afrikans I know are more willing to SHARE the knowledge and HIstory of Afrika with their WHITE "friends" or "significant:confused: other" but fear sharing info with us well...we'll turn on them and use it against them.

    Last I remember, we all came from Afrika.

    Felt this one thoroughly.


    I must give credit where it is due...an elder of Senegal gives a history lesson after each ot his dance/drum classes. Although he's "sharing space" with a white woman, he has no problems telling the TRUTH about the white man and the things they put us through as blak/Afrikan people.

    I don't particularly care for the woman he's living with (been through 6 or 7 afrikans before landing him) BUT I have to respect him for sharing our history.
