I have never in life liked Michael Blackson, I really can't stand the sight of his face, let alone his goofy ass voice. He made his start telling the worst jokes, with his buffoon African accent. His accent alone which solidified the place in many peoples minds that Africans are some of the dumbest people alive. 

He didn't seem to care about carrying Africa in a better light, now all you see on social media are posts that always claim, "the Africa they don't want you to see!"

This coonin' behavior is getting way too old and too annoying, this is happening more and more often especially on social media. I'm frankly tired of it, I've lost so much in life for defending Africa, Africans, my lovers and friends, while so many continue to coon themselves for money and fame!

"Cooning" is a derogatory term used to criticize or insult individuals, particularly those from marginalized racial or ethnic groups, who are perceived as acting in a way that reinforces negative stereotypes about their own group or panders to a dominant or prejudiced audience.

This is saddest when its being done by Black people for financial gain, it is very annoying.

Black Americans are very quick to call out this cooning behavior, however I have rarely seen this in the African community. As a matter of fact just 2 days ago a Nigerian woman called me a racist because I told her I would never date a Non-Black or Non-African man in my life.

She sent me several Facebook comments, insulting me with the racist taunts and she thinks that someone not dating a white person is truly a hateful, racist person. As a matter of fact she sent me comments for more than 24 hours.

This Rango Tenge Tenge who is on TikTok with over 3.5 million followers, he is not only on TikTok, he is on YouTube, Instagram and several social media platforms. When you look at the comments from racists white people you can't help but get angry, they don't seem to think anything he's posting is fake. 

This platform just helps them reinforce their stereotypes of the stupid Africans, living in poverty stricken countries. Another thing you can't help but notice the social media platforms are not removing their racist comments.

This behavior is the same for many Africans who seem to hate Black Americans so much. Living in Ghana I've heard so many Ghanians speak about the Black American community as violent and thugish.

As if Ghanians are any better behaved, living in Ghana was eye opening to how horrible the lack of humanity that there is within the Ghanian culture.

I watched a now deleted video of almost 100 Ghanians filming 3 people who were shot, another stabbed while they died on the ground. No one tried to render care, or comfort, just a hundred people filming with their cellphones out.

Twice this year, (2024) there have been incidents where Ghanians lynched Ghanians that they accused of doing things such as petty theft from a closed shop. Men were caught on video beating the man to death, the police never tried to catch anyone in the group of men either.

Then there is always the excuse of Africans being "colonized" when are people going to stop making the excuses for Africans behavior?

There are thousands of comments on his social media posts like the ones above, the comments are so terrible. I will never understand why people will belittle themselves, then get angry when people do this on social media.
