That's what I realized after posting. I'm drawing back.

That's pretty common for many children of immigrants, not only in America, but Canada, UK, any where in the world.

yeah.

I find, in my opinion of course, Africans and other people of black descent are proud to have kids who don't speak the mother tongue.

You find 1st gem offspring of the above with seemingly no knowledge or pride of their culture, but their Asian or Indian counterparts who may be 3 gens deep are so culturally aware with command of their native tongues like they just stepped off the boat

It amuses me.

Was there a period of time where you felt alone bc of the differing cultures or did you connect more with the culture from your parents countries?

My father was american & my mother was Jamaican. I was raised more Americanized. I lived in JA for a year or so when I was little and if my father didn't break fool, I would've probably lived my whole life there...Because of that incident, I guess I gravitated towards american customs because my Dad & I were very close...but when I went to my mom's side of the family...Shocked culture shock like a mug!! Nothing but Jamican food, which I wasn't used to eating & an extremely strict upbringing...


Would you date a man from that country? I have mixed feelings, not really sure. Although there are many great qualities Jamaican men have, there are far more stereotypical things that I've run across I'd prefer not to have in a relationship.

I'm saying this bc for the majority of my life I considered myself non American even though I was born and raised here until I spend a long period of time in my parents country. Now I'm like 'hellz no I'm American'.
