I read many things on this site that I find to be offensive on a regular basis and I don't wish or intend to be part of that. My thoughts are positive but someone will feel as though they are being attacked or insulted.

Perhaps I can say that from my own experience Germans go well with other Germans, Scandinavians, Turks, and Africans or black Americans. Just think of it being like astrology and signs that work well together and others not so much.

Gotcha. I was just curious as to what angle you were coming from.

I do know that in the days of Jim Crow and its policy of racial separation that many black performers had to go over to Europe to be appreciated. I believe that Germany was one of the favored destinations.

Thank you. I think Europe has been way ahead of America in terms of race relations but little by little America starts to heal the wounds. Germany and most of it's people are sensitive to this given "our" history. It seems to me that Germans feel quite comfortable around black folks...I wish I could articulate my thoughts better but I think you have the idea.

Unfortunately, Ron Ron's girl just didn't happen to be the best looking. I am just glad there they are happy together [no reported marital problem at least].

Dirk's fiance is a trailer trash looking former stripper/current scam artist. Thank god that his advisors were looking out for him (and his money).

Huge difference between American black women and black women straight from Africa. Those men and women don't seem to have the pitfalls that African Americans do (unemployment/lack of desire to work, poor/non-esistant education, crime, broken families, obesity, etc.)

Nothing quite like an ignorant person displaying their stupidity and calling out other people for things that they themselves are guilty of.

Why don't you take your "non-esistant", brainless self to another forum where your retarded views are more readily accepted.

All you can do is attack a typo because you know the content is true. I didn't realize we were in English class Ms. Wilson. Bottomline is many Europeans marry Africans. It is common practice. Africans are nothing like black Americans. It would be foolish to think so. You couldn't have two more opposite cultures if you tried. They don't look up to 2pac or Scarface in the Sudan, catch my drift?

Somewhat controversial claim by American standards, but mostly true.

No, I "attacked" you because you're blatantly stupid. When stupid people try to discuss things that they have no knowledge of, they generally sound just like you.

Its obvious that you have absolutely not a clue about either black American culture or African culture. I've lived in both places and while there are differences, the situation cannot be painted with a broad brush like you're attempting to do, in your "I saw it on TV so it must be true" style. You and Ms. Teen South Carolina have a lot in common.

Just quit while you're behind and STFU about things you know nothing about.

That's what you have to say in order to preserve your self and your state of mind. One day, you will grow up and open your mind. You are in the Caribbean, wtf do you know? I'm on the South Side of the Chi. Want to try again?

I'm laughing so hard at your dumb @ss that tears are rolling down my face.

So, I'm the one that has to "grow up and open my mind." I'm a world traveler, you dipstick. I've lived all over the globe and have a long and intimate knowledge of all types of cultures. I'll bet that you've never been out of the "South Side of the Chi."

Seriously, just STFU, or you can keep on trying and I'll keep on laughing.

I'm more black than you just from growing up on the south side and my skin is white. Emoticons and laughter...that is all you are good for. I'm still waiting for you to add something valuable to the thread. Answer this one question if you have any balls:

Are people from Africa different than people raised in America?
