Did we lose our "African" culture? Depends. If you mean do we have the same customs, dress, and language, then yes we have lost that. But we do have our own culture. It is a culture that is emulated all over the entire world. You would be hard pressed to find a spot on this planet where our music, style of clothes and our slang is not represented. The African American culture is an extremely influential force on just about every person of color (whites too, but I don't really care). We just don't realize our own worth because of too many naysayers.

We're different than Africans. A native African is different than an African American. The native Africans may still contain it's own culture (depending what country he/she is from). It reminds me of how black Americans are different from other ethnic groups too. Other ethnic groups speak in their native language (Arabic/Chinese/etc.) and listen to music from their homeland, I'm just saying the "American" part of our ethnicity is very important. It's like we're American first, then were African.
