    The term Southern Hospitality must have come from our ancestral roots,
    and an African cultural trait that slavery could not remove from us.

    No where will you see an experience such honest and sincere family love,
    then from the sisters and brothers from the Motherland.

    They always give a warm greeting and smile when they see you, and if they have not seen you for a while, they will ask how you have been

    I don't know what part of NYC he's referring too, but he sure ain't talking about Harlem, or the Bx. Unless he's referring to when you are at one of their stores or buying something from them at one of their tables/booths on the streets or the sisters on 125th or other salons sitting outside smiling, trying to get you to come in and let them braid your hair. In that case, yes, they always smile and greet you, but is it normal across the board...no! For the most part they look down their noses at us, as jamaicans do.

    I know, where do you see this happening? I seen some Africans the other day and they gave me an evil eye...
    But I can't say the same about Jamaicans, cause they've always been cool with me (well at least here they are)....crazy too, but they are cool

    To the brother that likes to pop much ish about BK organizations and grassrots leadership, I can say this

    Africans walk with an ancient dignity and nobility, meaning that they are able to read people, and if they read you as correct, they will come correct, otherwise just like anyone else, they dont want anything to do with you!
    My experiences are from shopping weekly on the strech of Fulton from Franklin to Tompkins, in BK, and in Harlem, I have never met anything but comraderie and brotherly and sisterly love from the street vendors back in the 90s and the taxi drivers, restaurants, and other African owned businesses.
    I talk to folks not just shop and spend, and they are honest and warm, when they see us refer to ourselves as African.

    I use the internet kiosks at the hair braidng centers and see the sisters on the block and they always stop and make sure to say hello, no its not just a huslte, as stated ti depends on the individual vibe, because that can not be hidden,
    if a person carries a positive vibe anyone can feel it but if they carry a negative,
    "Yo What you lookin At??!!"" kinda vibe, then.....welll

    You mentioned something about all Black folks in Phillie that it would not be apropriate to reference at this time for the sake of Black unity and progress

    I see now that this thread is really about somebody trying to re invent themselves again because people finally realized. He ain't about what he talk about!

    as an experiment , it mite be good to wear men's clothing when one steps out side.

    Some negros are on a cerfew and understandably not allowed to go to the other boroughs but any one here at Destee, is free on their NYC visit to come to the restaurants and stores on 116 st in Harlem or the many businesses on Fulton between Bedford, and Franklin or Bedford to Restoration on Fulton ,
    or Nostrand from Putnam to Medgar Evers college,

    and see for themselves exactly what i am talking about!!!!
