    Apart from a few other black people I know in my school I've noticed this trend of that slang people use "init doe man is vexxed?" and "Nah u must be dizzy fam" Yet I just speak normal English. And they seem to listen to that grime music that you can hear blazing out their earphones on the 3:20 bus, which I just hate and don't listen to I don't hear any rhythm or sensical lyrics or nice flowing backing music. The best I listen to is Old rock bands like Queen.

    I also don't dress much as most of the black people in my school they have that boxed haircut where its just hair on the top of their head and cut off around the sides with fancy designs. But I just have short normal black hair that I don't really alter. I really act nothing like my race stereotypes lol.
    What about Obama or Morgan Freeman? I could not imagine them listening to grime.

    Lol I can see your stress, but just because you dont fit into the 'black' stereotypes, doesnt mean you should Isolate yourself from the black community, remember that at the end of the day you're one of us no matter what music you listen to.

    I know exactly what you mean. It's slightly different as I am a girl but I also get accused of listening to 'white music' or 'acting white' on a daily basis. It used to bother me but I've come to not care what people say now because I am proud to be black and my music taste does not reflect my ethnicity. There are also way more important things for people to be concerned about than what music you choose to listen to. So don't listen to any of the negative comments.

    I'd actually argue that Africans are far closer to white people than actual black people. They have a fundamentally different attitude. For the average black person the very thought of leaving the house without having a shower is inconceivable, yet Africans seemingly do this all the time, Black people tend to be meticulous about combing their hair yet from what I have seen many African people seemingly leave the house without combing their hair also I rarely ever see black people sharing drinks other people (this is because we know all too well the hygiene risk of such activities), Africans however do not seem to follow suit, the amount of times i've seen Africans sharing drinks with other people is to numerous to count. The general conclusion amongst the West Indian community is that Africans are not black but are in fact white people in disguise.
    So much stupidity in one post....

    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
    Errrrr I wonder where you;'ve been getting these ideas from. Sounds like something Azealia Banks would say :/
