    That's what africans do to qualify?

    It's an insult to Africans, and humanity's intelligence in general, that you cannot perceive the difference between someone who has lived in Africa for a couple generations and someone with African heritage in their culture.
    Sigh, we all have African culture. It's an insult to humanity to assume that which developed after leaving Africa is more important than that which developed before leaving Africa.

    All the white South Africans I've ever known (spent quite a bit of time with one in Europe) have been the same thing as Europeans culturally. I knew a 3rd generation white Zimbabwean and - guess what... you'd never know by meeting him. Not the slightest difference between him and the Euros. A couple generations in Africa does not make one African.
    and I suppose all the White Americans you've met are exactly like all the white Europeans you've met...

    What kind of Euro moves to Africa and adopts African culture?! None. Get a ****ing clue.
    Exactly which African culture is African culture?

    Compared to Africans, yes! This is what you fail to understand - ancestry is not a couple generations deep. Having spent time with white South Africans and a white Zimbabwean, I can assure you they had no African traditions or culture. They were aware of such things, but had not adopted them.

    Show me a white guy in sub-Sahara with a bone in his nose and a painted face worshiping a tree and practicing magic and then, perhaps, your side of the argument will have the slightest bit of evidence.

    Exactly which African culture is African culture?
    The culture that did not come from Europeans.

    Sigh, we all have African culture.
    This debate has become too stupid for me. I draw the line at nihilism.

    Good day.

    Damn, you would have to go and qualify it by stipulating sub Saharan Africa.

    and right when I was about to invite you to come along with me to the next country fair here in Eugene, too!

    I've seen a lot in New York, when they occupied Wall-street.

    Don't worry, according to some morons, we all have African culture. We're all Africans!

    Stupid arguments, devoid of knowledge regarding Africa and sociology. That kind of BS is for children.

    As someone with a PhD(c) in Ecology and Sociology, having spent years in Africa, I can assure you that those arguments are an embarrassment for any learned person.

    Personally, I don't give a ****.

    There is only one race...the human race.

    Deciding a person's 'race' based on the melanin content of their skin is ignorant in the extremis, IMO.

    That's real strange because I find your arguments far more suited to children .. "bone in his nose." Talk about a childish argument?

    Irrespective of whatever degree you may or may not have, or where you may or may not have lived, you are entitled to your perspectives .. I have no desire to change anything you choose to believe.

    It is that simple.
