I am Proud to be an African American

Postby caburiye1 » Sat Jul 21, 2012 6:36 pm

Guys,

I have been an African American now for 2 years and I am loving it. I am learning to sing the Spangle banner. It is previledge to Come from another Country and become a citizen just like an american born. No one can claim to be more american than Me. It is my country too. I can vote, I can contest to be the governor of minnesota and even the became a congressman. I can eve go on TV and call the President a full and an Idiot. If I go to Djibouti and ask for citizenship, I would not get it or I will be considered second class citizen. God bless the United States of America.

I know Somalis in europe would be surprised but No one is more american than others. Cadaan cannot claim to be more americans than anyone because they are not from here either. Just the same way I happen to come from Somalia, they came from Denmark or Germany or Russia. We are all americans and have equal rights.

American is the land of the brave and the house of the Free. If I go to hargeisa and have a fight with someone, I would be asked to go back to my land" south Somalia". If I have a fight with someone In Minnesota, No one can even mention where I originally come from because it is non of no one's business. They would only ask, Sir, I can I see your MN ID?

You are a Somali American...

African American is used mostly to refer to colonial slave stock Americans.

Mama Africaaaa :heart: Somali's are not African American that term doesn't apply to you if you know where in Africa you are from. African American are the black people who do not know what country they come from due to slavery. But nonetheless we are Africans :clap:

African-American is term for black africans who are mixed with white slave masters and sometimes native americans. They have their own culture/dialect and a troubled past. Somalis are definitely not African-American.

Maybe you don't understand the american social classification.

We have

a) European americans ( caucasian whites)
2) Hispanic americans( espanyol)
3) African American's
4) Native Americans

There is nothing like Ugandan Americans or Djiboutian american or Nigerian america. If you are of african decent and you become american, then you are African American Just like me. I was an african 2yrs ago and I am now African american.

The American Classification system is warped and misleading. It clumps so many different ethnicities together. For the love of god a Yemeni Arab and a Afghans are in the same category as Swedish people! If you base all your understanding of race on the american social classification system then your knowledge of the subject is very limited.
