Africans continue to tread on the backs of Black Americans, while trying to dress, act, talk, walk and use our music. It's been annoying when they turn around and try to proclaim we have no culture.

This ignorance and hatred shows that Africans will continue to attack the cousins that they willingly sold off into slavery. The hatred is not needed, if only they took this energy and worked on their own home land and continent. Imagine that, imagine the things that they could do with their energy if they focused on their own homeland.

After Africans selling off Africans now their grandchildren and great-grandchildren are attacking the offspring of those sold off. Yet they don't say insulting things about Haitians, Jamaicans or Brazilians, it's alway just the Black living in America. I am a Black American that has lived in 2 African countries and catch HELL because my skin is light.

Instead in what is now becoming typical fashion the hatred must go on someone. So when they're not hyper focused on killing homosexuals, some have to lash out and say cruel, wicked things about millions of people.

Most Africans have no idea about the culture of Black Americans, not the foods we eat, especially the ones that came about because of 400 years of enslavement, thanks to them. Trading trinkets with the British was worth selling off humans.

The sad part is what did selling off humans gain the African continent? The continent that now seems to be in a constant struggle. With millions of people still living in towns and villages like it's the year 1600.

Because of lack of development and funding by their own governments. Governments that seem to hate them, so they hate others.

Burna Boy Denies Saying ‘Black Americans Have No Culture’ In Complex Interview

Afrobeats star Burna Boy did a sit-down interview with Complex, posted on YouTube on Wednesday (Aug. 23), and claimed blogs misquoted him following the “Black culture” clip.

In March 2023, Burna Boy caught much flak after he compared Black Americans to Chinese and Italian Americans in a viral clip, claiming the latter two had close connections to their native homes through family members while African Americans didn’t. He added that African Americans were more than welcome to explore their culture.

So now basically Burna Boy called Black Americans 'AKATA' out loud without using the hateful slur. The fact that he even opened his mouth about African Americans makes no damn sense what so ever. While he just used music from a Black American man. He claims he wants to bridge the gap between Africa and Black Americans, this was not the way. 

Many Black Americans never in life have a dream to go to Africa the more hateful comments like this will continue to force others to want nothing to do with Africa.

When Twitter users told him about his ignorant ass, he didn't even care then he used Malcom X and Louis Farrakhan.

This is no different then the Ghanians that applaud slavery and made their stupidity, hatred and ignorance known. The sad thing is none of these people will pay for their comments, none will lose money but if they had said this about Jewish people or other white people they would have no more career. Also no one is apologizing or seeing their comments as wrong.

Africans and others can always hate on Black Americans and nothing will happen. The world beats on Black Americans and no one cares.

"At the end of the day I'm still gonna do my job. I'm still gonna do what my mission is and my mission is to bring us together, you know I mean?" he said around the15-minute mark. "My mission is a bridge - to build a bridge that can't be broken - a bridge that should have always been there."

The drama began back in March, when activist Chaka Bars asked Burna Boy, "Why is it important that the diaspora come home?"

The I Told Them… artist argued that unlike other American minority groups, African Americans lack ties with their homeland.

Doesn't Burna Boy live in the UK? Maybe he should worry about himself and go back home to Africa.
