Q: You know what I find crazy, all the really american black people or akatas are so proud to be black, but the minute someone says they're african or even more specific west african we become the butt of jokes and laughed at and just not taken seriously and even worse you got people like Michael Blackson who put down there culture to fit in.

“I moved here from Jamaica when I was six, and my accent was so bad that I had to spend two years in ESL classes before anyone could understand me. I remember feeling very frustrated. I was surrounded by people with really thick accents who were trying to tell me that I needed to get rid of my accent.”
