    what is your ethnicity? why do west african and jamaican girls hate on east african girls (partic somali). is it jealousy :unimpressed:
    (Original post by prudence290497)
    I'm black African n I think they hate on east African girls because of their hair maybe coz Somalians etc have long soft hair than the hard afro don't know if you get what I mean

    Erm, no. I'm sorry, but this question really annoyed me. No, Jamaican people don't particularly, sit there hating on Somalis etc. No, your hair comment is unjustified and just eugh. I mean, where did you even come up with the conclusion? Most Jamaican people/ Caribbean, don't even think much about that at all.
    Plus, a lot of Jamaicans are actually mixed and you have a lot of types of Jamaicans (e.g. Chinese Jamaicans) (Out of Many, One People), so a what you have assumed is just well... steriotypical...
    I'm sorry, I just cant see what there is to be jealous of. Jamaicans are very prideful and the reason why some may have issues against Africans is because of the assumptions and racist comments against Jamaicans some people make. And funnily enough, all the horrible comments about Jamaicans/ Carribeans I've heard have come from Africans.
    Plus, your reasons for jealousy seem so shallow.

    The thing is that black people are usually from different constituent countries, so having those stereotypes can be very annoying and oversimlifying. It's like saying all white people are obsessed with garlic, saying "zut alor" and wear stripy t-shirts. And I'm sure people would pull me up on that. I don't blame people for their ignorance, but c'mon!

    Twerking is customary to the carnival cultures from some caribbean islands and the Americans commercialised it. That's where it came from. There is no "Black" culture. People in places like Sudan are not twerkers.
    It's a stereotype. To question her about it is not 'racist' whatsoever. Besides read the post. I said Western 'black' culture. I.e. Black people living in the Western world (Europe, UK and USA).
    Twerking is common amongst black people in the West.

    It's a caribbean thing actually. It's bigger in the caribbean and US because there are more over there. You'll find there are a lot more Africans over here in the UK and their culture is nothing like caribbean dance culture. There is a massive difference between the culture of American Africans, British Africans and British Afro Carribeans.

    The racism is the expectation that OP has a certain behaviour because she happens to have a skin tone, not the sheer mention of twerking. It doesnt pay respect to the culltural identity of her actual country of heritage which implicitly suggests that all afro countries are the same and don't deserve differentiation.

    You would correct me if I defined English culture with Hillbilly or Greek culture and just shrugged my shoulders and thought ..whatever - broadly the same colour.

    It's like expecting white people not to dance or to be surprised if they have a big **** or something. It's just culturally dumb and over simplifying without going into the bogged down specifics of the demographics between different western populations of african descent.

    It suggests that we are homogenous peoples with one culture and it really is very annoying. Black is not a culture.

    In the UK this is what I have observed.

    Jamaicans are the original black immigrants in the UK
    there have been others. but Jamaicans have over shadowed them.

    Africans Don't get on with Jamaicans for a few reasons.
    1. Jamaicans culture (food, dance, music, dress, dialog) is admired. whereas nobody really cares too much for Egusi and Fufu. I dont think Africa has contributed much musically since Fela Kuti. and africas big. fashion-wise africa has been looked to for its history and tradition. not its forward thinking creativity. Only recently has african fashion started to become more interesting and only recently has azonto picked up. but azonto has gone almost as quickly as it arrived and is now boring as "popular" music. although ghanaians seem quite happy to dance to azonto... ALL DAY AND NIGHT. also azonto whilst cool dancing on stage isnt really cool in clubs when you're going to dance with a girl with you just poking in each others direction. its like the dance equivalent of being friend zoned.

    2. Jamaicans are working class. Africans are middle class. So whereas Jamaicans are proud of doing an honest days work hard labour. Africans have a very snobbish attitude and often laugh at the poor. the UK has quite a working class tradition so when jamaicans were blending in working on construction sites with the white workers and then having a drink up after. Africans have not done this. africans will go out and not want anyone to touch them and look down their noses at everybody. working class people let go because they work hard and play hard. middle class people are too busy trying to get one up on everyone and being holier than thou. So africans are jealous of jamaicas coolness and street cred. but jamaicans don't like africans snobbery and are resent of their success.

    3. Afro-Asiatics aka East Africans. nobody knows how to class them, not even themselves. are they arabs? are they asian? are they black? are they african? basically nobody parties with them. why? because they're muslim. and muslims are not fun people. nobody wants to go to a "muslim party" and nobody invites muslims round because they're too much of a pain to cater for. they even call themselves east african. when they no very well that they are different to most kenyans, ugandans, tanzanians and mozambicans. so why do they call themselves east africans? perhaps its to blend in with other africans? perhaps its to illustrate they are superior and that the black africans who live in east africa are migrants of some sort? anyway people don't get on with afro-asiatics because they are fake. they are fake because in an ideal world they would NEVER call themselves black. they are very proud of having arab blood and given the opportunity would rather marry someone from yemen than kenya. the only reason they say they are black in the uk is because they would have no social life otherwise. arabs and south asians won't accept them because they are too black. so they "settle" for black people. so they want to try and get the street cred of black people and have allies of some sort. so its "yea yea im black of course im black" to their face. but "no i dont class my self as black" at home.
    as for being jealous of the hair? black women don't get to see you're hair because you have it covered because you're muslims and where scarves and hijabs. so you youself are only really appreciating you're hair. also jamaicans are used to seeing black people with asian admixture such as coolies. so its nothing new. however yes there is major issues with black women psychologically and their sense of beauty, being accepted in a western context and being fashionable. and lots of black girls will not admit they are ashamed of their natural hair or embarrassed that they've never been taught how to look after their hair to the point where they think its harder. or they decide that their own hair as an individual is special and cannot be dealt with naturally with out major effort. its just poor parenting and education or people lieing to themselves. protective hair style... 24/7 365 days a year? yea... sure you're proud of you're natural hair. like they don't do weave that makes you're hair look afro? or even curly? but yea somali's n eritreans n djbouti n all those types not many people even see you're hair to no about it so don't get gassed.
