    It's a very true unique experience. From out foundation of how we came to America, and how were were treated in the country that we BUILT and MADE the richest and most powerful on Earth. The most amazing feature though it how we created our on subculture in this country which became GLOBALLY admired and recycled!

    Everything that we do have done and still do is imitated all over the world. The way we sing, the music we invented, the way we dress, the way we talk, the way we wear our clothes, our earth etc....We are the best athletes on earth, we have over 2,000 inventions, our historical civil rights leaders etc.

    This small sample video just shows how much SWAG we have.....

    We gave black people all around the world a "FACE and a "VOICE"



    African American culture is simply Iconic!!

    AA's certainly have influenced global culture but I wouldn't say it is the most copied. For one thing, most of African american culture is influenced by Europeans anyway

    This thread just goes to shows how hopeless blacks really are. If blacks truley were iconic people, they would not feel the need to brag about it. Europeans and other successful races such the Japanese never brag because they know just how good they are and that is on display. Many races and countries respect these people for their technological advances and civilizations.

    Blacks on the other hand have NEVER established a civilized world. Just look at Africa. Its the best they can do. The only things blacks excel in are music and sport, which you do not need intellectuals for. Beyond that, they fail. Just look at Detroit. Everywhere blacks go; crime and poverty follows behind them.

    So stop trying to lift your race, they're pathetic and have don't anything for anyone. Most races don't respect blacks anyway. If you go to Asia and parts of Europe or even south Africa and south America, they're looked upon as second class citizens and treated like the monkeys that are.
    LOL now what Black man stole your girlfriend!


    This is a positive thread so I won't address these comments anymore, back to the regularly schedule thread!

    You a LIE! Our culture is 100% original that's why it's always recycled by other cultures. We never get the credit for it because White American and especially White British have always stolen black American culture . What culture is more imitated than AA?

    There is zero European influence in AA culture, wearing wigs and fake nails was not to imitate europeans but to be accepted by the majority white people in America. The ideals of european beauty were literally beaten in black peple in this country by force not choice.

    I dare you go to Atlanta, Charlotte, New Orleans, Houston, Memphis, Brooklyn, IngleWood, Chicago, etc and say that African American culture was influenced by Europeans.... lmao!

    Do you think white people made singing like this up?

    Actually that sort of music is very influenced by jewish entertainers like Burt Bacharach. It uses European instruments and time signatures. Do they sing like that in Africa? Don't think so

    So I assume any black musician who uses any type of electronic music as an influence is culturally appropriating too?

    But the use of the electric guitar in music was invented by African Americans! LOL

    Elmore James (January 27, 1918 – May 24, 1963) was an American blues guitarist, singer, songwriter and band leader.[1] He was known as King of the Slide Guitar but he was also noted for his use of loud amplification and his stirring voice.



    AA invented just about everything in modern American music, we just never got credit for it.

    Actually it wasn't. It was a white man named Gage Brewer. The guitars themselves were pioneered by the likes of Gibson, Rickenbacker and Fender (all white).

    Also I said electronic not electric
