Everyday racism: Your stories
African Americans Against Africans and Vice-Versa! Cultures Against Cultures!
I am African American and I am married to an Nigerian Lagocian for 8 years with 3 children. He came in my life when my oldest son now 15 years old from a previous marriage when he was 3 years old going on 4 years of age. My entire family disowned me because I am married to him. My mother and my sister used to tell my husband to go back to Africa. All of my friends I had are gone too. Everywhere we go there is a lot of hatred from a lot Black Americans and there is a very negative vibe withing them. Some of these Black Americans that don't know us will have the odasity to tell my husband to go back to Africa. Our reply will be to that such-a-person is "How can you say such a thing when you are a decendent of Africa you are just born here in America." I worked with people that clearly stated how they do not like Africans and that they come over here taking all of the jobs etc. My response was I am married to an African man, and is expecting a baby with him too ha ha ha. All of this is just foolishness among us humans. Racism is not just among blacks and whites. It is in all nationalities and different cultures among all humankind. I pray for God Almighty to put an end to all of this madness . I do not see any colors with any humans. We all are going to be judged the same way before the King of All Creation God Almighty. He does not care what color, religion, or culture you are. Just put your trust in the Lord and Pray for those without understanding of Faith and humankind, and just ignore such persons and keep moving forward like I did. Peace!
Servant & Believer of God Almighty
