First off there are many Africans that are rightfully angry about the way African countries are portrayed. It is not as bad as it was back in the 80's & 90's when Africa was simply on television for food programs, poverty and HIV cases. Actually African countries rarely make television in the United States unless it is about war or a coup.

Now with the social media being so popular, you'd have to be living under a rock to not know that Africa isn't the way people think it is. It is not a huge pile of dirt with naked people living in mud huts. Even though there are many unpaved roads and people living in very complex designed mud hutts for their coolness and easy building times.

Africans also have some of the worst ideas about other countries, fueled by others telling them some of the dumbest shit as well.

Even a Google search of several so-called "scholarly articles" are calling the Black Africans people with the lowest IQ's on earth. I've often read some of these articles and the one factor missing is that not all people on the African continent have access to education. Not to mention that many use the British educational system, that hasn't in some of their countries been updated in a very long time. Yet given resources the way western countries have Africans excel.

I'm really starting to think that less Black Americans should go to Africa at this point. Because its making me very concerned about their behavior and so many Africans think all Black Americans are exactly the same person, as if we all share one brain cell or something. Which is likened to the misinformation that many have about them. 

Frankly the hatred dumped on both communities is very annoying, also I would like to note that so many Africans are aligned with the rhetoric of racist white Americans. I think I outlined that very well in the last thing I wrote about the many Trump supporting Black Africans.

There are so many social media platforms to mock Americans and call us the dumbest people in the world, I've also written about this several times. However it would be cold-hearted or called racist if someone created an account to post all the moronic things other countries say about the United States of America. 

Any way, Meek Mill went to Ghana and he used his Philly street slang, Ghanians insulted him so badly, calling him and Black Americans stupid with many other comments, you can read about that here. 

Meek has once again posted some dumb shit on his Twitter account, South Africans are pissed off and going in on him and I don't blame them at all.

SA Tweeps Drag US Rapper Meek Mill for Asking Ignorant Music Question: “Don’t Disrespect Us”

Meek Mill wondered how South Africans access international music and got tweeps worked up with his question The rapper topped trending topics on Twitter/X as South Africans gathered to drag and educate him People enlightened Meek that South Africa is not a backward country like the western media portrays.

"Do a lot of people play my music in South Africa? I remember having on big show there a few years back. How do yall listen to our music in South Africa? On what platform or in Nigeria?"

However, the rapper's question sparked a hilarious uproar on Twitter, with local tweeps showing their trademark wit.

@AdvoBarryRoux asked: "Who are you?" @AjeboDanny mentioned: "The music you did with Davido where did you think the streams came from Oponu? That’s why Nicki Minaj left you."

@Bidal4Life posted: "Nigerians and South Africans uniting for this huge meal."

@_ShaunKeyz commented: "The same way yall listen to amapiano in your country, it’s the same way we listen to your trash songs man. Don’t try to revive your dead career by disrespecting us."

@SciTheComedist tweeted: "Lol you want to come yet you're insulting and looking down on us. Anyways we play your music on a tree."

@ncoook_ commented: "Lol bro thinks Africa is a wasteland, we use Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube. Grow up meek."

@NOCOFFE5 added: "Don't disrespect us you'll end up like Burna Boy. South Africa don't forget."

Also I would like to note Briefly, this South African media outlet, they wrote an entire article about Drake and couldn't understand that Drake is a Canadian citizen. They called him Black American several times and when some South Africans tried to explain he's Canadian they didn't seem to understand. Its like every Black person in the Americas is a Black American.

This is like claiming everyone living in Brazil that is Black is also a Black American, instead of an Afro-Brazillian. Again though this is because they are taught that there is a continent named "America" but still to not understand that there are 57 countries in the Americas is sort of stupid to this author.

I'm a Black American and frankly I'm tired of Africans insulting us, the same way that they're tired of being insulted, but at least Africans are still in their own homelands. Where as Black Americans don't really have anything that belong to us, not even the culture that they claim we don't have. 

Here is another time when a few Africans claimed Black Americans were criminals and on drugs, they even used the "Black on Black crime" bullshit.
