Why are US and Canadian Blacks hated by Africans?

My university has a considerable number of Africans. Ask any of them if we descendants of slaves are "African Americans" and the answer is a resounding NO!!! The African students explain it as we got a jump to the front of the line by serving white people and the poorest most ghetto black person is 100x richer than poor Africans. I pointed out that my ancestors were dragged here kicking and screaming, but they say it does not matter. US and Canadian Black are NOT welcome in Africa because we are white people lovers.
Thanks from Twisted Sister and Kipper

Some of those African students could have had an ancestor that sold other Africans into slavery. Still happening today too, sad to say.

Slavery existed in Africa well before any slaves were brought to the New World.

"Chattel slavery

Chattel slavery is a specific servitude relationship where the slave is treated as the property of the owner. As such, the owner is free to sell, trade, or treat the slave as he would other pieces of property and the children of the slave often are retained as the property of the master. There is evidence of long histories of chattel slavery in the Nile river valley and Northern Africa, but evidence is incomplete about the extent and practices of chattel slavery throughout much of the rest of the continent prior to written records by Muslim or European traders."

"Several nations such as the Ashanti of present-day Ghana and the Yoruba of present-day Nigeria were involved in slave-trading. Groups such as the Imbangala of Angola and the Nyamwezi of Tanzania would serve as intermediaries or roving bands, waging war on African states to capture people for export as slaves. Historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. Henry Louis Gates, the Harvard Chair of African and African American Studies, has stated that "without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred."

White people lovers?

Nope, blacks aren't African Americans. In my mind, i've always considered them simply as "Americans", period.

I've met many Africans and most resent the term "African American." This is because most black Americans have never been to Africa.

What a crock. The source of this information is you?

Nothing more than a racist statement on your part.

I've been to Africa. Also, there were a lot of Ugandans in Iraq when I was there. So, I've really met many Africans.

I regularly check on company cattle in Kwa Zulu....

The world is round...and there lay all our problems. It's simple geometry. Round. Sphere. We've travelled so far in these past tens of thousands of years that we've run into other people. It is guaranteed that this will happen...on a sphere.

Wabi sabi.......
