Default Re: Does this reinforce a stereotype?

yes, and they also love rice and peas obviously...

african americans are americans decended from africans.

black people don't just get called african everywhere else.

black people in france are called french citizens, not african citizens. to be a citizen of africa (you may have guessed this) you'd actually have to live in africa, or have been born in africa, or be tied to africa, or have claimed citizenship in one of the coutries inside of the african continent -not just be black.

I am black and love fried chicken. So cannot comment.

I also love rice and peas and the name Shaniqua.

But I don't love watermelon and call anyone 'massa'. Possibly because I'm biracial.

My guess is that photo was just taken in a predominantly black neighbourhood.
