    African nations are not automatically home to you because of your phenotype.

    You’re going to a place that has people, cultures, languages, etc as a visitor. So act like one. Act like you have some damned respect. The people aren’t required to cater to you because you decided to show up. 

    The Slave Ship is my home. 

    wow. wow. 

    ^^^ essentially. no home for niggas. none whatsoever. once lost forever lost. even africans dont want us….even though we are africans. colonization. its real.

    Africans don’t want to appropriated. It’s that simple. Ain’t nobody said that you ain’t wanted. What isn’t wanted is arrogance, appropriation, and perversion of African cultures.

    Africans don’t want us

    America doesn’t want us

    A theme that has continued to reappear in candid conversations on this website.

    African’s don’t want to be appropriated but have no problem delving into african american culture in all it’s aspects.
