    Many of my friends are WA and some are EA, yet i have noticed that most WA (for example Nigerians) never consider EA, black (somali) and EA argue they are. What is this divide between the 2?

    I have mates that are from both ends. Culturally, there are major differences in how they act. My EA friends are Muslims, while the WA friends are from different religious groups.

    As for being black, i don't know where that come from. My mates are all considered black, but within our friendship group, they are identified as Kenyan, Nigerian, Ghanaian, Somali and Senegalese.

    I think they are all black though.
