For years people have told me that Blacks from Africa and from the Caribbean think they are better than American Blacks. I had never experienced or witnessed such a thing until yesterday at work. I met this dude from Nigeria that had a big problem with working under my direction. He didnt say anything initially but his attitude and body language said alot. I pulled him to the side and asked him what his problem was. I was wondering if I had offended him in the past and didnt remember. I knew I had never met him but thought maybe I could be mistaken. He first denied there was an issue but later told me that he didn't want to get stereotyped as an American Black and it was nothing personal as I didn't appear to act like "one of them". I was stunned at first. Here I am looking at this Black man that looks like me and he wanted to be as far away from being seen as a Black American as possible. If I had not been at work I would have had discussion with him explaining that without "one of them" he wouldn't have the nice job he was currently working. I guess there is ignorance no matter where you come from.
