I am asking the forum to distinguish.

This is the quote that inspired the thread:

Digg, you, as a Canadian, really have no frame of reference in discussing African-AMERICANS.

many slaves fled to Canada rather than northern states because of the Fugitive Slave Act following the Dred Scott decision.... so that's a similarity i guess...

Different cultures and regional upbringings?

The same difference between white people from new york and white people from LA?

The only difference i believe there is between African Americans and African Canadian iz that some if not most AC came from Africa and chose to settle in a new land unlike the AA who were brought to America against their own will. But if this form of events have anything to do with the way an AA and AC thinks i dunno cuz what i see out here is young AC trying to be more like the AA.

they're black




the difference is, black people in america invented their own slang...black people in canada, being that they are canadians nonetheless, use american slang originated by black people in america and try to justify using it because they are black...but no, your are CANADIANS, use CANADIAN words and slang or make up your own so white canadians can start using it to sound cool



also, i don't get why black people are called "african-americans"...most aren't even from africa..their ancestors from like 500 years ago were..you, your parents and your grandparents are from savannah, GA, not from fuckin africa...you wouldn't call a white american "british-american" unless they immigrated directly from england right? maybe second-generation-born-to-immigrant people can call themselves african-american or whatever-american but after that, youre american, bitch...with african ancestors...or cambodian ancestors...or whatever
