Why is it that every African immigrant I know has a name like Jonathan, Peter, or Sarah while so many nigs have names like Tamaleo, Maliqua, Shaniqua or some shit that's clearly made up?
colonial influence anglicized the names of a good portion of the southern african population- especially the higher classes who are much more likely to immigrate to the US. Christianity too.
In the 70's there was a rise of a Black/African pride movement, which involved ridding themselves of their white "slave names" like George, William, and Julian; instead we have garbage like Deshawn, Tyrone, and Shquanda.
Because you haven't met any from Nigeria because they are actually doctors, telecommunication specialists, or other high tech stuff.
Most likely you are meeting Africans from a Christian area -- Kenya, example -- and they have Western names. They are here to get blue collar jobs.
You can't compare Africans to African-Americans.
African-Americans don't know their roots and in their ignorance choose those names to feel better connected.
African immigrants understand that in order to assimilate into United States culture, you have to ... have Western names.
Same reason our names are mostly jonathan, peter, or sarah. Because they are christian you dumb fucking retard.
I think I'm going to blow my brains out, I just want to read about dead muslims and shit. Fucking all these retarded nigger liberals get out of my /pol/
AFRICANS ARE JUST AS BAD AS AFRICAN AMERICANS
QUIT FUCKING PRETENDING OTHERWISE
IT'S ABOUT RACE, NOT CULTURE.
Christian africans get traditional christian names, its typical of a newly christened native population, alot of samis i know for example have lots of names like lukas, peter, noa , adam benjamin and im pretty sure jonathan has christian roots as well.
Leagues better than mussies but stil blacks
The point of the thread is american black culture. Keyword here "american". So again you have reinforced my point that everything american is fucking retarded.
