Ha ha!
 
Well I personally think Black Americans have the lead in the diaspora about accepting themselves and embracing their blackness.  IMO, outside of America, especially in Africa and parts of Latin America, self-hatred is the norm.  It's not questioned.  Its just understood European is superior to black in every way imaginable. 
Caribbean people are just as accepting, i've seen some dress in traditional african type clothing i don't see that with american blacks. IA with some latin american countries though.

Sooo much insight from soo many people who've never lived there. Africans have self hate issues just like the rest of the dispora but this underlying theme that AA are somehow more proud to be black because Africans are soo self hating needs to go. Both groups are equally tainted. In Africa I can watch TV and see black people who look like me the majority of the time. That's a rarity here and it's not because dark AAs don't exist. It's becauae the community devalues us more than in the African community. But, in the US I see many more naturals walking around and that's because Africans have a general idea that their hair is ugly.

Same ish different continent.

Splitting hairs, but not what I said. I don't think they actively hold beauty and hair standard from europeans....but they are passively affected by the world holding white women as the standard of beauty...
people dont even acknowledge that is what is happening, which is why you get people with silky weaves, bleached out skins and contacts swearing fo God that they arent coons and love being black...

If the government started a program to sponsor Blacks who wanted to go back to Africa, would u join?


You will get/own 15 acres in the African nation of your choice.

The land would come with a 3 bedroom home and a car.

You get $150,000 (USD) to spend how ever you want and you get an extra $50,000 for every minor you take with you (no more than 3).
Travel expenses covered.

You just cant come back to the US. And if found back in the country you will serve a mandatory life sentence.

You *&%^$#@Ein with it?
