Your accent.....that's what bothered any african who came to america during puberty or adolescence. imagine being judged the most during a time when you are the most sensitive and vunerable to criticism.. it changes you, either for the worse or the better, depends on the perspective really.

Some become deeply resentful towards their roots and others become angry and even more traditionally rooted, some are a fusion of both and there you have the "westernized african"... Ironically we start thinking sounding american made us more acceptable, some were even worse because we thought even sounding white american made us seem smarter?...heh! but does it really??....they sound like them but we have to master sounding like them and us, so who really is smarter??..., listen to fela's song "gentleman"....reeeeaaally listen to it, for centuries society has tried to extinguish the essence of being african and we africans aren't innocent, we are also culprits, in this song fela mocks these africans who torture themselves trying to be the european man.

I still speak pidgin and on occasion yoruba or igbo, though my mother tongue has been watered down over the years, i speak it proudly now, i still talk loudly, chew my leftover bone when i'm done with the chicken and lick my fingers after eating. The sad truth is... At some point...i wanted to be this... "Gentleman" ....fela spoke of.

Home is home...even if it means walking up a hill for 20 Minutes, dodging motor boys on their motorcycles, saying no to the creepy old man who is always at the corner store trying to pick up females claiming he's going to be in touch with a lot of money soon and waiting in line for 15 minutes for the fresh & hot banana puff puff (beignet banane) 🤣
Home is home! ........
