Pan, I hear what you’re saying. Thanks. You’re truly wise beyond your years! I checked out the first thread. All I can say is Lawdy, Lawdy!! Yes, you have covered it all and then some up in here! I’ve met Africans of all types—ones who thought AAs were superior and ones who thought we were inferior, but mostly ones who just don’t know what to think about us. I don’t know what the big deal is. I’ve always wondered why people were so closed off to other people. I’ve found there are usually many cultural equivalences between cultures of people.
If you thought the 1st thread was something, check out the second one...that one got really heavy! By the way, how do you know what my years are? :wink:

Y'all know that in the past I have raised the same points that Karmashines raises in this thread. While I still stand by all that she and I have said, I do see brotha Samurai's point that there is a marked difference between saying ain't none of them no good and saying there are many of them who are not suitable. I can find no defense for the sista walking around People's drugstore cussing in a loud voice at some man on her cell phone. And you better not say nothing to her about self respect or you'll get cussed out too.

I know too that people are people whatever continent, island or country they reside in. Anyone who thinks they can go to Africa or the Ceribbeans or somewhere and not still have to shop around is setting themselves up for disappointment. I cannot think that being born in Africa has an inevitable effect on a man's coomitment to family when I know a woman whose Nigerian husband left her and their two children ater 11 years of marriage when it turned out he already had a family back in Africa! I can't use that as evidence that ALL African men are dogs but by it I know that there are dogs in Africa just like there are in America. People are people.

Our Sister presents some very pertinent points here.

Indeed, there is the issue of shedding one set of problems, when considering the pursuit of non-American Blacks, for the acquiring of a whole new set of problems.

Most of this, I think, comes with the lack of exposure to a new "culture" (while there is an inherent cultural universality amongst all blacks, it cannot be denied that differences due to climate, religion, language, socio-political structuring, and even exposure to the white man exsists between various facets of the Black diaspora). I think that a person should have it already well within mind, that they will have to adopt a wider array of thinking, if they hadn't already, prior to their new relationship.

The same premise should be taken into consideration when dating anyone of any other besides one's own.

To expound further upon RIVER's point, I myself have been told to steer clear of various groups within the Black Diaspora, both on a practical and romantic level.

The admonishment I received about Nigerians seems to mirror RIVER's statment, that Nigerian women are opportunists. The same/similar was said about Liberian women.

From what I understand, many South African women (and people in general) have not shaken the racial identity issues that have plagued them for the past several decades.

However, East African women are apparently the most venerated.

Women from Ghana are said to be more "sexually uninhibited" (take that to mean whatever you wish) than other African women.
