Yup epitome, My campus is filled with chidi's and Okwu's. Some who haven't been to Nigeria at all. JB's are the minority here especially for stem.

at my school they called themselves "regula blacks" which is funny bc blacks in the US tend to be more mixed than nigerians or haitians lol...

Lol. I think it has a lot to do with culture, because at my school we have a certain culture where everyone either acts pg or Baltimore. So we all share that culture. But when the time comes, they'll bring out their african or Caribbean culture. So they have their american culture and something else added on. But JBs have only their american culture.

Like when you ask people where their from, they'll say I'm from pg but I'm originally from camaroon. They'll say both. But when I say I'm from moco I get an.. "Oh.." Because People are expecting me to say Nigeria or Dominican republic or something. Also because no one fuccs with moco.. But I digress :(

Well, when I'm asked, I say I'm Nigerian-American. It depends on who's asking. I could also say I'm Nigerian. But during conversation if more is asked, I say I was born and raised here. I'm from PG too. But I only say that to people outside PG (e.g. Bmore folks) and I just say my state for everyone else and KIM. Having dual cultures is complicated if you wantit to be.

Glad you said
Till the cops come knocking then you're just described as African American

It still fits ..

But yeah I worded it that way intentionally ..
