I can't tell you about my bloodline either. The idea is to gather on here whatever you may have learned from books or the internet about the African origins of the people in your culture. Aren't you the least bit curious? Where are you from? Or your parents?

It would seem so    . Such a shame. Anyway, I'll keep listing what I find about different countries. *Sigh* Not in the mood for Kimye threads right now...

FYI, this doesn't apply to black americans alone. Most west-Indians have somewhat dissociated themselves from the continent as well after some 400 years. The point is to get a sense of where your ancestors came from, country by country.
I'm still interested in knowing where the blacks from the U.S., Brazil, Jamaica or Mexico come from. But that's just me. I like knowledge.
It would also help to see what we all have in common instead of what divides us.

Not really curious, since the answer is pretty clear. I'm a negro descended from slaves who were I'm sure mixed with all sorts of things.

I guess origins just really don't mean much to me.

The whole point of the exercise for me was to figure out what ethnicities are on BHM and if I can learn from them regarding my ancestors. But I guess some people just don't give a fucc.

Anyways, Any Igbos, Yorubas or Susus in here? If so, let me know.

fascinating! Thank you! I already recognize a few tribes from what you posted!

Every country posted so far seems to have in common Kongo and Sierra Leone and Benin, from what I can see at a glance
