In one of PAN's threads, there was a KONGOLESE sister, that mirrored many positives that I had heard about Central African people.

I say all of this, because even though there may very well be some truth and/or accreditation to these reputations, an individual would still need to examine each person they meet (especially those who would be considered as potential mates) on an individual level.

Nigerian Men may be "royal oats sowers", and Nigerian women may be "gold diggers' by and large, but I am more than certain that there are quite a few that are decent, loving Black people.

Just as, while Ethiopian woman may be the proverbial "jewel of the Nile", there may be a couple of harlots and Jezebels from that culture".

The very same principle applies with our people here in the West.

Remember, when seeking out a potential mate, all a person SHOULD be concerned with, is that ONE special person.

PEACE

I second that emotion.

No people is free from stereotyping,

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.

Although I do like to point out that certain behaviors & attitudes are common within some cultures. You are absolutely correct in pointing out that not everyone in that society is going to behave in a certain way.

Maybe the issue of panafrican dating deserves its own thread. We have hi-jacked the thread about Wesley Snipes.

Who the man is dating or chose to marry is totally irrelevant to the efforts he is making for all of us. It is well about time that we benefited from the cultural influence we have. High time that we profited from our own creativity as every other group has profited off of us.

The only problem I would have with Snipes is if his dating preferences spilled over into his hiring practices. If there aren't too many sistas on his team I would have a problem with that.

But on a personal note he is not my man. My man doesn't date non black women. My man dates me. If he is dating a non black woman then he is not my man--he's her man and their relationship is not my business.

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
