She's Zimbabwean, which is in Southern Africa. There is very little evidence that Southern African tribes particularly those in the inlands were involved in the slave trade directly

And lastly, slavery is taught in passing. No need to be taught slavery for many other reasons in that part of the world.

I can see why AAs are mad but not every African tribe was involved in the trade.

Dude is just sour and misinformed for many reasons..

Being a typical obnoxious American with his all Africans are from the same place attitude

I know one thing, it was disrespectful to come over here and after making a living off America thanks to slaves and their ancestors blazing the path to diss the hell out of us during black history month. He asked her a yes or no question. If she wanted to go deeper she could have come up with something more intelligent and respectful than "The world doesn't revolve around America you know." Um, bytch I see you still found your way here and you ain't goin back! Let an American go to Africa and disrespect their people and the civilization and see if we get a pass.

Like I always say, if Africa was so damn hot they wouldn't be here. Gtf!

Nobody said she or her countrymen were at fault. But you don't dismiss your own like that in their own country they slaved and died for. If it weren't for slavery in America, she wouldn't be where she is today. I'm pretty sure I'm not descended from Southern Africans but I still address my people with more respect than that.

Picture them asking me if I learned about apartheid and saying some dumb shyt like the world doesn't revolve around South Africa you know. Censored

I had a feeling that this conversation would veer left.

Do y'all learn about the African tribes pre-colonialism , colonialism and post colonial Africa? 

We learn a bit about slavery and then move on to Colonialism and African Independence. I remember being taught about Haiti and Toussaint Louverture, We didn't discuss the civil rights era.

Tmz always makes blacks look bad. Didn't they ask djimon how he felt about all of the slave roles out there for blacks these days?
