    You hit it on point.. If you ever work in a place where it is predominantly black.. just keep to yourself because they would do anything to seek favor among white people.. especially AFAM women.. And yes I said it.. I rather have a White Female as a boss than a Black woman because they take out their frustrations on you as a person.. and I can prove that time and time to come....

    Case in point, a colleague of mine had a job with one of the Big 4 companies.. she is happily married and has 2 kids.. she went on a cruise and put her pix on her desk.. the AFAM boss came one day and told her to take it down because it is distracting.. meanwhile in the AFAMs office, there are pix of she and numerous dogs cats and i think friends.. She was like NO.. Everyone has thier personal pix on their desk.. needless to say the AFAM started doing some crazy stuff.. when we did some under g research, we found she was divorced and that was the second time she was getting a divorce.. I am not against AFAM.. so please let no one misconstrue anything.. just that I rather work for a White person face to face.. do my projects and bail with no sentiments, no slave this and slave that ... and its just about the d a m n job!

    Worked for a respectable hospital in Balitimore once and I honestly felt sorry for my boss. A black man who managed a helpdesk full of black employees. He was afraid of them and could never speak up...therefore, they walked all over him. Mind you, he is also a black American. He always had me doing favors for him...u might say, I became the boss indirectly...but the cut to it was that when it came down for him to do his job, he turn his nonsense on me instead as to him I was piece of cake. I respected him but he took me for granted while the other Americans like himself treated him like dirt. The damn office was so noisy and I still to this day, do not know how I manage to last that long over there. If you want to see plain ignorance in broad daylight, work with AFAMS who have no degrees (and have no intention of obtaining one) but happen to know that you have a degee and you are from another country, a black. woe onto you!

    Yup you are right.. I worked for the DC Govt on contract.. it was full of AFAM women who had been there for a number of years.. no degrees etc.. they were noisy and then this woman had the nerve to walk up to my desk and tell me that my perfume was disturbing her... I ignored her at first.. then the next day she called my project manager and said that my skirt was too short.. and if you know me, I dont EVER wear skirts and that was the middle of winter.. and then the final blow was when I was leaving early one day and she came and was asking me where I was going.. I let it all out on her.. she started crying..which even made me more irritated because I was thinking as her mouth was running, she should have the strength to support it.. needless to say I only stayed there for about 6 months and bailed

    Why are some Africans disrespectful to African Americans when someone is complimenting a piece of clothing they may be wearing, or asking questions about Africa, Nigeria etc.?

    It goes both ways.

    Yeah, but then again they also weren't divided systematically either. If you want to understand why many African Americans think the way they do then read the Willie Lynch letter. That's a real eye opener.

    My eyes are open as well as my mind. I have worked with people of all nationalities and races, cultures etc. asked why AA's have a hard time in America and I was just telling you some of the reasons etc. That's something we have to teach our children to beat. That was one powerful strategy used on slaves

    @ highlighted. So if if goes both ways in this case, then why is it so difficult for you to understand that both the white and black race have racist people among them and it is not only the white race?:1087:

    Well i've had that experience. So apparently African's don't disrespect someone for giving a compliment, but African Americans. Please. Like I said it goes both ways. Gave a compliment to an African women about clothes she was wearing when my mother and I were at church. We asked her where she got it, and she replied "Honey I made it myself I'm African" Now that sounds like nothing on a messageboard etc. but if you would have heard the woman she made it sound as if black Americans don't sew their own clothes. Now anyone else would have just said I made the outfit etc. instead of trying to hit you over the head with it.
