I don't eat cornbread or gravy...so your theory is flawed.

So, you feel that it is unfair to call you a chicken munchin' Jamima?

I like cornbread, but not gravy.

I'm trying to get to South Africa and Zambia, cause we have family friends from there who are actually visiting us now.  Unfortunately there's those two little concerns called time and money...  :(

Not that there is anything wrong with going to Africa, I hear some parts are really nice, but as a Black American person whose ancestors were sold out of Africa by Africans and who has had experiences of being looked down upon and called an Akata by Africans who have immigrated to America recently...why should I as a black person want go to Africa?

Maybe as a humanitarian, a vacationer, or even a historian, but not so much as a black person.

Umm, maybe to learn a little about your ancestral history..as a black person?

Yes, if I were a historian interested in genealogy I would definitely make sure I visited Africa throughout my world travels.  However, I am no historian and even if I were, like most Black-Americans, my ancestoral history is so mixed up that I'd have to travel the entire world to learn about it, and since that's the case there's no reason to necessarily give Africa special status.

I completely disagree, but to each their own...
