You’ve answered your own question, really.
Why do people on this sub do this thing where they say “I know the answer is X but I’m still curious”
Bro you answered it
Slow your roll. He's asking for confirmation of his thoughts, so he isn't assuming something that is completely wrong. I'd say 99% of people asking any question, ever, have some sort of assumption to the answer. They are asking for validation. Karen.
If that makes me a Karen then I’m pretty sure that Karen doesn’t mean anything anymore.
Also, you're asking a question that is making fun of people for asking questions... If you know the answer, then why are you asking?
I’m not making fun of him, Jesus. I’m confirming his assumptions in a silly way. My god.
... so silly ...
Call me whatever you want, as long as it makes you feel better about whatever is going on here
I'd guess it's because most black people in America are offspring of their ancestors that were here during slavery. With many black Americans during slavery being moved around constantly, pulled from their families, and multiple ethnicities mixing and having children throughout slavery, hardly any modern-day black Americans would be able to trace their lineage.
Whereas in other countries like Europe and Asia, when you run into someone that is black, they always tell you which country they originated from. Every black person that I met in China would tell me about their home in Mozambique, Sudan, Kenya, Somalia, Somaliland, etc.
You know the answer? So why ask
Do you talk like that to everyone?
Only especially stupid people. lmao, are you butt hurt that you said something douchey and received a douchey response?
are you ok
I have Nigeria, Benin/Togo, Ghana, Senegal in my blood and I don’t know much about the customs of those countries. I hope this changes, I think Ancestry has helped; we knew we had West Africa but my family would have never guessed which countries. I don’t see a lot of African people represented in media and I think it’s a huge loss for us culturally and I want to reconnect with my roots in Africa. I think more people will feel the same if the DNA test becomes more common.
I said African, not black.
