    We Don't reject it and yes indeed WE are black but Africans are not. The reason for this is simple. The very term black was a category given to 'Africans' who were descended from slaves since Africans from Africa apart from Liberians) are not descended from slaves, they do not legitimately have the title of black, they are simply just Africans. People call Africans black out of pure ignorance and the fact that they look fairly similar to black people but as I said Africans are not black.

    Anyone else find Africans (especially Nigerians) extremely black and evil?

    Black is a skin colour, not a culture.

    He wasn't. He was asking other black people if they do those things.

    I'm an Oreo, OP. I listen to rock and wear mainly black. Most of my black friends tease me for this...(the music part)

    Slang sounds so corny and odd when British people say it. British accent is too sophisticated like Victorian days and castles.
    lol not neccessarily. There are loads of british accents.

    This is the dumbest post ever. You don't adhere to stereotypes:congrats:. I think you're aware that these attributes are not universal among black people.

    Your short hair is just as normal as their high top or someone else's braids, you're not some pure form of black person so stop seeking validation :rolleyes:

    Also, you make it sound like those who listen to grime and use slang (in the appropriate environment) are doing something wrong.

    + Can a black person who is articulate and not a roadman not be referred to as an Oreo or white on the inside or whatever, decent behaviour isn't a "white thing"

    30 is a big number, wow.. 30 you say? Isn't that like 80% of all Africans in the world? Astounding, you've uncovered a widespread trend.

    This is me basically lol The otherday someone said I act like a whiteboy
    And you liked that comment right? You're self loathing. You have to accept who you are. Just because you don't conform to black stereotypes doesn't mean you're like a white boy. That's an insult. I'm not black but if someone said that to me I'd be angry.

    Not Africans as a whole but certainly a lot of Nigerians, the only Nigerians who seemingly don't hold this sense of superiority to West Indians/AA's are the Igbos/ebos (sorry don't know how to spell it), and if you want me to be more specific it seems to be the Yoroba in particular who view the black diaspora as scum
