My co-worker married an African-American and her parents invited her ex Nigerian BF to their engagement party. Talk about awkward.

none african black cultures cant even get along within themselves and yet they expect africans to embrace them once they yell 'uhuru' or some sh*t like that..

its kinda patronising

How is it patronizing to want to know who your ancestors where? Never mind, don't answer. I don't feel like engaging you.

no one said wanting to know where your ancestors come from is a problem, shad already did that by going for his dna test,

assuming that using a couple of catchphrases here and changing dress code there will get people to accept him or her is whats patronising and makes most africans kinda turn up their noses in that ' oh so you know one or two words and sport a dashiki, you african now' manner (eta: this is in a broad sense and not pertaining to shad alone)

its like saying, an african wearing timbaland boots and basketball tops and yelling yo' makes him AA

it doesnt work like that.
