why is there always destitute poverty, crime, disease, starvation in black populated areas? you look at any city in the world, theyre like a plague for some reason. look at all of human history, they need help by the powers that be at the time. theyre like children or pets that you need to help in order for them to survive. kinda makes sense when you look at how they behave.

it also makes sense they try to get away from their african blood, look at their stats on intermarriage. they are ashamed of their subsaharan west coast of africa blood lol. well i dont blame them. i actually pity and agree they should be helped. go ahead and go to europe or china, or any other place superior than africa in every sense of the word. everyone feels sorry for ya and pity you. just realize and know that. its a sad truth.

hey kat that racism bit is so sad. thats the only excuse you people have. oh if we go here or there or that place is there racism? lol. you pathetic weaklings. just go to africa then. there are plenty of hotels and bars and clubs and monuments and ruins in africa lol. you sad, sad race. stop bitching "how do they feel about african americans in europe? asia? australia? You seem to not understand the fact that you are a very immature people. who wants you in their country? nobody does. youre a drain on the economy, society in general, you are lucky people feel sorry for you. havent you noticed that nobody wants you in their land? get a clue. the only reason you survive is because people just plain want to help you. you are pitiful. you are a drag. you did not complete the evolutionary scale.

Hi Dutteyeh…..

Maybe next time you can "hook up" with my son.
I know you indicated in another post that you that you didn’t have an enjoyable time in Toronto…perhaps you didn’t have the opportunity to sample some of the many activities Toronto has to offer.

http://www.caravan-o…
http://www.warner-en…
http://www.nowtoront…

I have attached some URL’s…Perhaps it’s something that would interest you….Perhaps not. I love Toronto and am seldom bored.
I am heavily involved in community work and do fundraising for Cancer, Kids help Phone line, Sickle Cell, AIDs etc. I also enjoy
partying…even at my age..(40 something)

I recently signed on again to do a 60K walk for Breast Cancer..

kat234 likes all lands but her own. It is pretty obvious what is happening here. She wants to go ANYWHERE but africa. They want to get away from their blood, there is nothing impressive about it. They have not advanced the world in any way or form at all, if anything they hold it back. Poverty-stricken, diseased, walking bags of STDs, lazy, immature people. She doesnt like africa like the rest of her brethren. How can you blame her? She doesnt want to take one step into africa because she knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is there to be enjoyed. Except plenty of wildlife =)
kat234 you pitiful fool, I guarantee you 99.9% of all people that defend you in this forum and in the world are non-black and plain feel sorry for your kind. Even the Jewish people (whove been through a lot for a couple thousand years) help you out tremendously. (they own hollywood). Makes you think why black people get away with all these white devil jokes? You sad fucks. The saddest thing of all is you losers keep bringing up the past. As if only black people have been slaves in all of history. Just admit the truth and ill cut you some slack. Otherwise I will educate you some more. Self righteous prick ashamed of your own race. Go down to southern Italy and watch little kids throw rocks at you and call you "merda", you sad loser.

luisfc1972….

You have certainly missed your calling…
I can’t help but chuckle at your responses….
It never ceases to amaze me that you continue to assume my motives or how I think. I am not "American" or "African". I am Canadian…born in Montreal…now living in Toronto.
I have lived in..Ottawa..Barbados..South America..Washington DC…
I have travelled extensively throughout North America, Central America and South America. I have visited most of the islands in the West Indies…I plan on visiting Western Europe in 2005…South Africa in 2006…Thailand in 2007. Travelling is simply in my blood. My dad is in his eighties and is still travelling. He has visited every continent with the exception of Antartica…

I eagerly await your next reponse so that I can have my "smile practice" for the day.

**PS I share your responses with the rest of my office and they are in complete "awe"… Does your "black buddy" you travelled to Europe with, find you equally amusing?????? Kindly respond. BTW I never believed that Hannibal or Cleopatra were black.

Your post from May 7th reads…

"well i am mexican but one thing that kind of made me chuckle. Hannibal and Cleopatra were not black. just wanted to clear that up. anyhow i travelled europe with a black buddy of mine and neither of us had any problems. like someone posted before, you might get some stares or some rudeness, but dont blame "race" for it. people are very curious in europe from what i noticed."

i wonder how many "friends" of yours helped you out with that response, and how many hours it took you? my problem with you is what i said before. do not try to africanize italy. do not make it look like africans have anything to do with italy and her accomplishments with the arts, war, cuisine, philosophy, political thought, etc. etc. i have italian heritage, my last name is napoles, as well as spanish, hernandez, straight from spain is my great great grandfather. it pisses me off when black people claim sicily and italy have been influenced by africans. dont give people that nonsense. you know how little "the peasants" care about history and you take advantage of it. poisoning them with your shit, they dont know any better. that is my problem with you and your kind. i know your motives "agenda" believe me. as far as my "black buddy" is concerned, he knows how stupid black people can be. he follows the school of realism as i do. by the way his name is Kwame, you self proclaimed i am smarter and wiser than everyone is Cunt.

Temper..Temper…. You should really do something about this.

I realize that it would take you hours to locate a post that you created. It actually took me less than a minute to locate it since it was on this very discussion thread. I am quite self sufficient by the way and did not need the assistance of my friends to respond.

I encourage everyone to look at how long it took Luisfc 1972 to respond to my earlier comment. He started at about midnight….and three hours later he completed it.

Game…Point…Match!!!!!!!!

I eagerly wait with baited breath for your next response….

If this had been me stirring up a ruckus on this forum, folks would have been screaming at the moderators to have me banned and shuttled off to BoogeymanLand. So where’s the moderator now? how come you aren’t telling these folks to take this to the PUB? Perhaps the moderator is Luisfc or Kat? Whatever!
So much for fairness on this site.

I have to say I am intriqued by these posts. I will have to disagree with some of the posts. I am black from America. I choose not to use African American because I am not. I have a mixture of Native American African American and Caucasian. I think it is a joke that black Americans even use the term African American because when you are outside of America your considered an American. Do we call blacks from holland African Dutch? And before I get bashed here I have lived in greece for a year and I will tell you that it was a revolutionary experience in my life. I had no idea how racist America was until I landed in Greece. As a black man from America in most european nations you will be treated with way more respect than ever received in your own land. And why do I say my own land it is because contrary to popular belief in America if you are born in a country your a citizen of that country. My parents were actually worried about me when I lived in Greece. But I informed them that I’d rather live in Greece than live in Texas. I lived in Texas for two years and it is so racist and segregated it is just a shame, blacks in one neighborhood mexicans in their own neighborhood and white in theirs. It is just a joke. And people actually believe America is a intergrated nation which I think is just sad we have a long way to go. I grew up in Ohio and went to a perdominatly white high school. Kids at this school would try to set me up with the only black girl in the school why? I guess since we were both black we must have everything in commen. Did any of these kids try to set me up with anyone else of any other color, not on your life. But I had a precursor to my trip to greece. We had two spansh exchange students who were girls in my school. And I now look back and wonder why they would always look at me and chatter amoungst themselves in spanish. One day one even gave me a kiss on the cheek. Now after having lived in Greece I know that these girls liked me or found me attractive because I’m black and have kinky hair. Yea kinky hair you know the hair that in America is considered bad hair. I now know that kinky hair is just a texture of hair that the women I encountered in europe loved. Now that is very different from the black american experience. I had a couple Greeks try to set me up with greek women. And I never met any type of resistance if I would speak to any women that was not my nationality. Hell in the U.S.A a black person is ridiculed if they date outside of anyone that is not black. How stupid are we not all Americans? Not in this case you have to date someone who is black. So in a nutshell the ignorance of our nation will stand out if you live in any european nation for a number of months. These are just some of the experiences I have had and I could tell of hundreds more that were just so positive. I always knew being black was special but it was cemented when I had experience after experience in other countries.

The term "African-American" refers specifically to Americans who trace their ancestry predominantly to Africans who were forced into slavery and brought to the United States between the 16th and 19th centuries. A unique ethnic group and culture (and dialect) emerged, but there was no proper name for this demographic of people. "African-American" is a term that emerged in the later half of the 20th century as an acceptable name. "White" Americans have a similar issue; they’re an ethnic group without a proper name. "White" is often used, however incorrectly (it’s often used to refer only to the Anglo majority, when in fact "white" is anyone of European descent which includes many Hispanic-Americans as well as according to the US Census people of Northern African and Middle Eastern descent). "Caucasian" was an artificial term created to replace "White." "Anglo-American" is much more fitting, if you ask me. It would pertain to the country’s European-descended, English speaking, and Anglocized majority (this would include an "Italian-American" or "German-American" who speaks no Italian/German, and his mother tongue is English). The US is in my opinion a country that’s still trying to find itself after 4 centuries….now more than ever. The country itself has a bizarre name, if you think about it "United States of America" is a description of the country’s federal system and the continent where it’s located. It’s not a name like "Canada" or "Mexico." "America" is often used in place of "USA," but for people in Latin America, "America" refers to the landmass that stretches from the Canadian Arctic to Argentina and Chile, not solely the USA. The USA’s main ethnic groups also have trouble describing themselves.

No, a Black Dutch person is not called African-Dutch. And "Black" could be anyone of sub-Saharan African descent whether they live in the USA, Kenya, Jamaica, Cuba, Brazil, or Europe. Many African immigrants in the US (someone born and raised in Nigeria, for example) do not consider themselves "African-Americans," because they do not come from that culture.

I have not read all the responses to this topic but I have to point out the gross ignorance of luisfc1972. Not only is he ignorant and spiteful but clearly a bigot with his comment of ‘he knows how stupid black people can be’. I have nothing else to say but luisfc1972 you are truly a jackass. I hope other italians or spanish or what the hell ever hybrid you claim to be, are not as stupid as yourself.

Russ- I entirely disagree with your surmise that european travel is of low priority for this group. Race has absolutely nothing to do with travel preferences as much as economic situations and geographical locations. First of all, I am black will be traveling to italy, germany and Prague this year and I have many black friends who have done the same. However, because I used to live in the caribbean before I never considered European travel a priority.

Although I too thought it an odd question about being comfortable, it is not as silly as it seems as many persons of non-black descent would not understand. I live in the middle east in a small country north of Iran where black persons are an oddity, to the point of asking you to take your picture on the street- so don’t think it a stupid question. Having, that would be more predominant in the third world countries that do not receive a lot of tourism or expatriate travel.
