This has nothing to do with anything, I just thought it was funny. I was at the zoo one day, and this kid was like, “you know, in Africa, they only have like dogs and cats in their zoos because alligators and lions are like their pets”
So, last week, after getting some box braids, my mom and I went out to eat. (I’m surprised she didn’t tell me there was food at home lol) We’re peacefully eating some chinese food, and then an African man in a white suit, sunglasses and a fedora appears, walks to my mom and is like, “Are you from Ghana or Nigeria?” My mom stares at him for a second, chewing broccoli, and says, “one of those”. Guy: “I suspect Ghana [insert Ghanian tribe here]” My mom: “The other one.” Guy: “Oh I thought so. I saw you and knew you had to be one of the two.” Mom: “Mhmm” *trying to eat* Guy: Did you know Nigerians and their [insert Nigerian tribal word here] were the root of Christianity? *blahblahblah* Mom: Wow. Guy: “You know, the Europeans are trying to take over Africa and it’s resources. They pretend they’re our friends, but they’re just using us! They don’t help us. In Nigeria *politicspoliticspolitics* is horrible *blahblahblah* we need to stand together and *BLAH* And you know in Haiti— Mom: “You know, some people look at me and start speaking Haitian.” Guy: Haitian roots are from Nigeria! I wouldn’t be surprised.. So anyway *Africaaaablahblah* (at this point we just tuned him out and kept eating) Mom: Wow, you seem to know a lot about Africa. Guy: I know, [insert nonsense here] Well, see you then. [says goodbye in Nigerian tribal language] Mom: Okay! *waves*
Once he’s out the door:
Me: …What was the point of that?
Mom: *kiss teeth* Trying to talk to people in the middle of eating…
He totally disregarded my precence, but I ain’t complaining. That general tso’s was delicious.
Why is it that when we Africans try to come together we always gotta break shit down and differentiate from one another ? Seriously if you don't relate to it or whatever can't you atleast get a giggle out of it ? We both know that you know this really does happen to some of us if not you ! I'm Sudanese and I can well & truely relate to most of these ! And in no way is this stereotyping whatsoever ! If want a stereotype here is one: every part of Africa is living in poverty -_-. Now that's a stereotype ! Anyways everyone is entitled to their own opinion and you just read mine :)
Ps don't ever change the name of this blog, otherwise i'll feel left out lol
Oh no dont worry changing this blog was never an option for me! It would be selfish to exclude all other africans. I know people (even non-african) can relate here. I think it’s pretty strange if someone whos african couldn’t relate to at least ONE post here..
