African-Americans Disgust Obama, Boost Hillary Clinton, Poll Finds

In the United States, racism has been merely historically defined and accepted only by certain individuals and groups as a distinct and complete separation between whites and blacks, with the belief that all white people are intrinsically superior to all blacks, anywhere, but the real and always has been hidden racial separation can now be intrinsically seen, felt and observed among black Americans towards black Africans in America.

U.S. Senator Barack Hussein Obama, the only African American male in the U.S. senate, who when he ran for and won the seat in the U.S. senate in November 2004, he was seen by many African Americans as the glory black-knight with the shining rescuing armor, a dream in the making, and a breakthrough in the United States politics.

Not only that he has become the most caring, charming, and distinctive black representative in the U.S. Senate for the state of Illinois, but as the first and only black male in the U.S. senate, he was seen by many as the true representative of all the black people in the U.S. senate.

However, because Obama was born to a black Kenyan father and to an American mother, who’s white, as a candidate for the 2008 U.S. presidential election, most African Americans do not really perceive him as being black enough, not because his mother is white but simply because his father is an African, born and raised in Africa, or the jungle as most refer to it.

The racial separation between black Americans and black Africans in America can be clearly and visibly observed, felt and experienced anywhere in most areas in America, where most black Americans seem to honestly reject the notion of completely associating with black Africans in America in terms of having personal relationships such as marriages, dating, and business partnerships.

It’s just as hard finding a black African male dating or married to an African American woman, as it’s rare finding an African American woman, dating or married to a black African man. But you’ll find most African men and women dating or married to white men or women in America, one example as that of Barack’s father.

If going to most historical black colleges in the US, you can clearly observe a great social separation between black American students and black African students. They only mostly socialize in classes and cafeterias, but they rarely talk to each other. You would find black African students sitting on one side and black American students playing or sitting on the other side either in Cafeterias or during many social events. While at most integrated colleges, most black African students rather associate and mingle with white students instead of black American students.

One can easily conclude that Africans are the one who isolate themselves and try to separate themselves away from black Americans, but most black Africans get tired of being labeled and mocked at and making fun of such as, as an African whether you sleep under a tree back in Africa, or have seen and chased lions and tigers, or have an electricity and phones in Africa, et cetera.

Most African Americans don’t even know the difference whether Africa is a continent or a country, and most of them still think that Africa is a country; they don’t know that Africa is just a continent composed of many different independent countries such as Egypt, Morocco and South Africa, etc.

Also, it’s just funny how some news media make a distinction when reporting about something that might has happened in Africa. They rather say South Africa, Morocco or Egypt when reporting something that has happened in those countries and would simply refer to other countries in Africa as Africa instead of mentioning the individual countries’ names such as Namibia, Tanzania, Malawi, etc.

In the movie, Coming to America (1988), starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, which depicts two young men from Africa who travel to America for Prince Akeem of Zamunda, accompanied by his friend Semmi, to look for the love of his life. In that movie, one can see the true stereotype of how most black Americans really treat Africans, even today.

Although Barack Obama is an American by birth, many black Americans still perceive him as not a complete African American enough, thus most black Americans rather support Hillary Clinton. And this is not based on Barack’s campaign platform or belief or experience, issues, etc., but mostly because of his national origin, being a half black African and white American, and not a fully blooded African American per se. So, in the case of African Americans supporting more of Hillary Clinton instead of Barack Obama, it is not by mistakes but just an old trend and true stereotype of how most black Americans do not cling to Africans.

But the tribalism and racism among Africans is not something new. It’s an old practice that dates back even before the age of slavery and or African occupation by white people. For hundreds of years, Africans have been waging war against each other, kings versus kings, tribes against tribes, and nations against other nations, bloody killing each other in hundreds and millions. And this is still going on in many different countries in Africa today, such as in Darfur, Sudan, Congo, etc.

Racism among black people does not merely begin with white people or the slavery, but has been going on for centuries and it is still growing strong. The only difference is that the world outside Africa doesn’t really care nor has really honestly ever cared to help end the misery and put a stop to what’s happening in Africa when coming to violence and civil wars.

Many countries in Africa have gained independence over 40 or 60 years ago from their colonizers. And no matter how rich the African continent is, in terms of mining, agricultural and wildlife, Africans are still dead-suffering, simply because of their ignorance to put aside their tribal and racial differences and work together for the sake of making their life better, healthier, happier and productive.

As for this nasty and filthy separation between black Americans and black Africans in America, this just goes way back to how Africans used to live and still live among each other today, no matter where they are, they fight each other, kill each other, and hurt each other. And at front of it all; it’s humanity crisis, the loud cry of parentless, poor, and AIDS stricken children in Africa is heard throughout the nights, every night, but sadly, no one is listen to any of them. The world does not care.

As in America, you’ll find black gangs and drug dealers, selling each other stupid and deadly poisons such as cracks, cocaine, etc., in almost every city in America, prisons and in many different institutions, where black fights against each other. No wonder there’re beer houses and gun shops in almost every corner of every black suburb in America, just so they can destroy and kill each other for good, just as it always has been, in Africa.

So it’s true that you can take an African out of Africa, but you cannot take Africa out of an African, even here in America. And before you shake your head in disgust, there’s still and will always be Africa in all of us.

The question is; how far can this go on, and when is enough is enough?

  1. Does make you wonder how the black community can be so adamant about social equality and yet be so polarized over Obama simply because he’s “not black enough.”

  2. I agree that a decision on who to vote as our next President should not be based on race or gender. However, I fear that another misleading CNN poll is throwing off where the true support is. I don’t give CNN with it’s financial backing of Hillary any merit for honestly representing poll data.

  3. This is exactly how some Black-Americans perceive Africans, that they are somehow better. Black people in this country are the most ignorant people on the planet. How can you hate another black person simply because you’re not from the same country. Hello! Did anyone forget about slavery, where do you think you came from? As an African I’ve been told to, “go back to my country”. As messed up as our continent is, at least I have a country to go back to I can call my own and know thats where I came from. Just because you were born here, doesn’t make you better…

  4. Dear Simon, I accidently stumble on this article and it beggars belief that you could assert such upper non-objective non-sense based on nothing but subjective observation. Racism exist in all corners of the world including intra-racial racism in closed-knitted communities and this is not akin only to black people. The real problem with black people is that we excel in ignorance stereotyping everything and anything. This is not a general rule notion but the prevalence of such behavioural aspect is widespread. To address the problem of black people adancement in the world, one need to develop a better understanding of human interaction by simply making introspective examination of oneself. African-Americans and African have one chief thing in common: they are patently BLACK. Cultural differences don’t make them less or more humane. As individuals, we need to fight against IGNORANCE rather than stereotyping PREJUDICE.

  5. Oh GIVE ME a break am an African and I for one believe this is another plot to divide people. Can we please for once transcend the race issue and look at the issues at hands. I have not been polled and my african american friends havent as well so please go somewhere else with your divisive politics. just sad.

  6. Like Mamadou Ly, I stumbled onto this article while searching for answers to why African Americans reportedly support Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama. Your assertions about a gulf between Africans on the continent and African Americans is mind numbingly inaccurate. It may be true that many African Americans never come in contact with Africans who come here from the various countries in Africa or other parts of the diaspora, but where contact is made I have personally seen many positive relationships develop. I have lived in Africa and have friends and relatives who have married and have had very close friendships. As you say there is Africa in all of us, but it is not at all as negative as you put it. For many years African Americans were very actively supporting the liberation movements on the continent and many participate in organizations that aid and assist African people.

    I too have heard someone say that Barack is not an African American but an African. That puzzled me, but I realized how uninformed the person was. There has seemingly been a reluctance to embrace Obama by some people because he was not a civil rights militant or did not grow up in the civil rights moverment. Neverthless, his popularity is growing.

  7. To the author: you said; “But the racism among Africans is not something new. It’s an old practice that dates back even before the age of slavery and or African occupation by white people. For hundreds of years, Africans have been waging war against each other, kings versus kings, tribes against tribes, and nations against other nations, bloody killing each other in hundreds and millions. And this is still going on in many different countries in Africa today, such as in Darfur, Sudan, Congo, etc.”

    Where did you get this Non-sense from?

    This is the most grotesque, stupid, vile lie I’ve ever read about African people! Please go back and read your history books properly! At least the version of Black authors! You’ve got a lot to learn man!

    You prove how easy it is to misinform, mislead and divide-SOME Black people of your kind-at this day of age!

    That being said, if there is a divide between African-american and African, where does it stem from? You mentioned IGNORANCE and I agree with you but looks like you are ignorant too!

  8. I’m gonna reply to this two parts:

    1-“But the racism among Africans is not something new. It’s an old practice that dates back even before the age of slavery and or African occupation by white people. For hundreds of years, Africans have been waging war against each other, kings versus kings, tribes against tribes, and nations against other nations, bloody killing each other in hundreds and millions. And this is still going on in many different countries in Africa today, such as in Darfur, Sudan, Congo, etc.”

    I think the author of this text has some think wrong in his brain. How can you directly make a statement that if Africans are fighting against each other, its for racial reasons. Will you also say that when France is fighting against Italy it’s also for racial reasons? What happening today in Spain with ETA will also be considered as racial fight? And what about Ireland?
    I think most of the time, when some one has to a statement when it’s link to black people, all the logical reasons are always pushed back and new rules are set. The statement that guy has made is really how western and white people are educated.
    I suggest you first to try to understand the meaning of “racism”. I also suggest you to learn more about what happening in Darfur, Sudan, and Congo, as well as the Rwanda genocide in 1994.

    2-“Many countries in Africa have gained independence over 40 or 60 years ago from their colonizers. And no matter how rich the African continent is, in terms of mining, agricultural and wildlife, Africans are still dead-suffering, simply because of their ignorance to put aside their tribal and racial differences and work together for the sake of making their life better, healthier, happier and productive”

    The author is also making here wrong statements. What will you say in Irak? The author is talking based on stereotypes. And he is a kind of racist white people who always try to push black people to fight against each other.

  9. Ladies and gentlemen and friends;

    The good thing is that more and more people are realizing this posting.

    But, it would be nice to read and analyze this entire posting first, before posting your own comment. And if you read more, you may even learn that the author of this posting is also black and born in Africa.

    So as an author of this article, I appreciate all your comments, but please read the entire article first, before you type to post your comments.

  10. Do you ever discuss Islam on this blog? Given people of African decent are converting to Islam at a frightening level, maybe you should.

    Please see my latest article on slavery which may enlighten you on the true slave master…Mohammad.

    Don’t be fooled into converting.

  11. “One can easily conclude that Africans are the one who isolate themselves and try to separate themselves away from black Americans, but most black Africans get tired of being labeled and mocked at and making fun of such as, as an African whether you sleep under a tree back in Africa, or have seen and chased lions and tigers, or have an electricity and phones in Africa, et cetera.

    Most African Americans don’t even know the difference whether Africa is a continent or a country, and most of them still think that Africa is a country; they don’t know that Africa is just a continent composed of many different independent countries such as Egypt, Morocco and South Africa, etc.”

    What makes the author believe that only black Americans have these misconceptions and ask these stupid questions? Also, are you sure it isn’t going both ways? I’ve noticed a lot of Africans have their own prejudices against black Americans (Somalis deriding black Americans as “Congoids” being one example). It is sad that black Americans and Africans haven’t got along as much as they should, but the singling out of black Americans for scolding is fundamentally unfair.
