Michael Blackson is plain out not funny. Africans who put down Africans just to be funny piss me off and i know so many people who are famous for that. The amount of times I got laughed at for being african is too many it’s sad

Idk if this is normal african parents behavior but my friends say i should get child protective services involved. But i dont wanna be THAT child you know? My family would never even speak to me... im scared, its a lose lose situation

Yooooo noooooo. That’s not okay. My parents be getting on my nerves and I get on theirs but the furthest they’ve gone is a slap. A knife and all that is too far.
At that point it’s abuse. Get help from a cousin or an aunt or uncle you trust. Ask them what to do first. If nothing helps or it gets worst child protective service needs to be involved. If you’re around 18 you need to work hard get some money get scholarship to a university somewhere just try hard to get out of the house fast. If you’re like around 16 or under man get help cause one day it’ll all get worst. Mental verbal and physical abuse. I’m so sorry you’re going through this

Like I said, that is just 1 example. I cud give you more but that would be an essay. What I’m basically trying to say is if your African parents treat you bad, it really is no laughing matter. It’s pretty serious and at some point 1 should stand up for themselves and not take that abuse anymore. sry about topic, just rly wanted to make that pt.

You’re right but I feel like you’re misinterpreting it. When I say you’re never too old to get beaten at an African house I mean hit like the back of your head. I’m not talking about abusive beating nothing like that. There’s a difference. But I get you and it’s true

I gotchu
