from what i was taught in world history was that everyone came from Africa and spread all around the world....also, i was taught about the transatlantic slave trade. slaves were brought to south america and other Caribbean (hot weather countries) to produce sugar, while others were brought to other countries, such as the united states, and they would work on cotton, tobacco,..plantations. My boyfriend is a black with african textured hair, and i can assume he could be mixed since he is light-skinned, and he denies he has african roots but he's from down south (the same place africans were brought to work on plantations) i know he has irish in his family and native american (because he says so) but the last time i remembered, irish and native american don't have rough kinky african hair (which so many blacks would have if it weren't for perms, etc.) He just looks like every other light skinned black brother to me..why do blacks deny they have african roots?

Why are you being rude ? He asked a question that people calm their lives down. Listen sister [ and I adress , as such , because I'm from Nigeria also] That 's their business. If people want to say that Africans 're not, well, then they are not Africans. you can not force him to say with your mouth , but you know every black person on the planet began in Africa. and you can tell that. [ I guess the truth hurts Bubba ]

I believe that humanity began in Africa , so do not worry about it . His opinion of himself has nothing to do with his life. If he means it came from Mars , and let him walk on his own business. I'm sure you have many good things to do in life to worry about what another person thinks of himself.

He is probably lying about his career , because he is in denial and hates being black . I know a lot of light-skinned blacks who do, but in reality , are only black and light skin . is pathetic . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Do not generalize people because her boyfriend is a self-loathing , insecure black . You're dead wrong . A lot of black people are not so stupid to deny their own roots .. Idk what 's wrong with your boyfriend , but do not think that just because he does , everyone does.

Grow some balls and ask your self , your question is a rather rude if you ask me . You assume that a lot of people when you do not know all the facts , even if his career hinding what matters to you , do you have anything to gain from this knowledge ? Do you even consider the kind of feelings that others put in their assumptions ? Its really bad !
