    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.


    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.
    wtf. this made me LOL. who the hell told you somalis don't class themselves as black when at home? stop making such silly generalisations. somalis may look a little different to other black people but we're African, black and proud

    white people don't no or care half the time.
    if you're a particularly araby looking somalian they just guess you're arab.
    if you're more black looking or have darker skin they just think you're black.

    they don't care enough to know the difference.

    again arabs don't think you are arab. they see you as lower caste arab wannabes.

    but then somalis use the same attitude to actual black people. aka the ones you call bantu. which is a stupid term that they use to refer to anyone whos "proper black"

    Since you mentioned 'ask me anything':

    1) What are your thoughts on Medieval English history? Specifically the Norman invasion?

    2) What's the funniest joke you know?

    3) How many red items can you see in front of you?

    4) Do you ever wish you were born as a animal, such as a small goat or a kangaroo over a human?

    5) Do you consider yourself adventurous?
    I don't really know alot about English history its just that I'm not a history person

    Ermm got loads of funny ones

    I don't really wish i was born as an animal
