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.
See that is your point of view she proudly declared she is African ...what is wrong with that ...Im African and I dont sew my own clothes ....here we go again it all comes back to Mental Slavery and persecution complex !!!
You guys need to let go of the pain of the past and embrace all kinds of people ...the bitterness of AFAMS turns people of every other race off !
