There are many stupid questions "How did you get here" is not one of them. Generally it implies a question of purpouse rather than actual physical transportation. Example the why might be because of educational pursuits. The how could be an enabling exchange program a relative, a buisness venture ect. almost nobody cares about your mode of transportation.

Also please excuse all the Idiots thinking africa is just full of huts that is the shit rhetoric we are being fed by various orgs leaching off of charity.

Not to put to fine a fuckin' point on it, but the gulf of Mexico hasn't got shit for waves, and the Atlantic coast, at least in Georgia, has NOTHING for them, so it's not like it's an invalid question... I mean, she surfs. It is one of her interests. Could she, a surfer, could have possibly meant that she wanted to know if South Africa has waves that are worth a transcontinental flight to do a thing she has at least a mild interest in?

First of all I feel the need to apologize for America's ignorance as one of the very FEW Americans who has ever lived outside of America or cares for international issues and events. I must also apologize for how stupid Californians are compared to even the rest of America. I lived there for a year, and will never go back do to the ignorance. Please be careful when you go to California, so you don't catch a new Oriental disease called "O-Son-a-Bitch-I-Stupid". Thank you

You would think I pulled out a stack of hundreds. It's just got more than one colour?

I'm originally from the Middle East, but grew up in US. I'm pretty good at geography, and am informed about a good portion of the world since 'my area' is always on the news, so I try to learn a lot about other countries and stuff anyways...if I wasn't middle eastern I'm sad to say that I wouldn't know 99% of the things I know about this kind of stuff. Our education system sucks and I would have the knowledge of that blonde on the beach.

One day in high school, a girl was adamant that there were no buildings in Africa. Like no buildings at all, no "proper houses", no towers, and so on. Only mud huts.
It didn't matter to her that I was black myself, or that I had been in Cameroon several times. She just wouldn't understand.

This reminds me of the one time I went to Capetown for a couple of days. I come from Germany where every person crossing the street without the traffic light being gree is pretty much a bad person and if you do this in front of children you just are the Antichrist.
So in Capetown it was just like Trevor said and we managed to adapt within a hour or so.But the we were on huge crossing and a school class with a teacher was waiting for the green light and everyone really everyone was just crossing including us. The teacher,teaching the chdren how to behave right in traffic, looked me in the eye while I was crossing and I had the feeling in her eyes I had a 666 written on my forehead.

I can proudly state that, as a European, I have been to Africa. Once (It was South Africa). But it does make one more sensitive to the differences throughout Africa and that "Africa" is not a country.

For people that have been meaning to understand the "shower joke", it was basically to ridicule the current South African president(Jacob Zuma). He was once charged with a rape case by supposedly a female whom it was later discovered he was in a relationship with. There were suspicions about her being HIV positive and so in his defence (president) stated that "he had taken a shower".

Everyone confused about the shower joke: Jacob Zuma was charged with rape in 2005 (found not guilty; the accuser was granted asylum by the Netherlands). During the trial, Zuma said he knew the accuser was HIV positive, so he took a shower to decrease the risk of contracting HIV. That statement generated a lot of extra controversy on top of the controversy from the rape charge itself because taking a shower doesn't do anything to prevent HIV transmission.

Few years before his presidency, South African president Jacob Zuma was facing rape charges. It so happened that the woman pressing charges was also HIV positive. So during an interview, Zuma was ask if about this and his reply was a confident "I TOOK A SHOWER AFTERWARDS", like that would wash away the infection. Classic guy, he's our Trump.

Trever has shown his enormous ignorance. "unnecessary surfer movements". A joke is a cleaver way to point out the truth. There is no truth to "unnecessary movements". Just ignorance there.

Pacific Islander is such a broad term. What specifically? Hawaiians are pacific Islanders so they're not wrong. So what exactly? Fijian, Samoan?

As a Filipino, what really grinds my gears are Filipinos (mostly American-Filipinos who've never visited the country) who claim they're Pacific islanders. No Filipino who actually lives in the Philippines would claim that.

He told the Africans in South Africa that after they have unprotected sex all you need to do is take a shower and it will wash the aids away, this was so they could increase the population of blacks in South Africa to vote for the ANC, they wanted to be sure that the whites wouldn't out vote them.

Blacks in non city areas of south africa don't shower often enough, like once a week, that's just how they are and have been. AIDS is also a disease common in blacks in South Africa. So Jacob Zuma, south african president, once tried to link aids to showers in order to get blacks to take better care of their hygiene. He said aids wouldn't be such a big problem if people took shower more often. It came out terribly and became a joke on the president himself in popular culture.

Traumglanz well a lot of countries in Europe at least have some neighbour countries. Which languages you learn + English always. But the English speaking world is pretty lazy, scince everyone can speak English... I think a lot of people in Europe also know French or/and German. Depends which country you live in and what countries it borders. I would personally recommend one Germanic language, one latin language and one slavic language as a base as a kid, from there on you can easily pick up almost any other European language as an adult. As many languages in the same linguistic group share enough similarities to easily learn them if you know one of them well.

I understand the resentment but I think it's kind of ridiculous that someone can fail to understand that if no one had taught them a language in the first place, they wouldn't be able to be speaking it right now to talk to me and the other people here.
Btw, I get that stereotyping is a serious issue, and there's a lot of it. Everyone lumps countries together. But it's worth considering that we all do it, even though we don't always notice we're doing it - you both seem to think I'm from the USA, and I'm Canadian. Different culture, much more multicultural, more knowledge about different countries. That just came to mind, so I thought I might as well point it out :)

I scrutinized through every word you've written in order not be annoying to him but he still didn't get it. I bet he's angry of the bad situation in his country and that Americans are underestimating their qualifications. so he acted his anger out this way. I know this because I, myself, am from a third world country, Iraq, and can understand, though not agree, his feelings. when smart hardworking people see many lazy stupid folks in america, they see this situation as unfair, so they become angry. but he has no right to do this because he's not even smart. he's dump as fuck! lol. I'm trying to piss him off. I know I wrote alot but I thought you need this clarification. thanks

Based on the commenter's non-English same, I thought it was fairly likely that English was their second language. I was trying to be helpful - I even stated that I hoped it was helpful and not annoying.
I used to study French, and I know that if I said something wrong in French, I'd want someone to correct me so I wouldn't repeat the mistake.
With your 'You yank piece of shit,' you're being worse than patronizing, yourself. You seem to think you're superior to all Americans - so much so, that you both assumed that I was trying to be patronizing, and assumed that I was American. Which I'm not.

Cars are easier to have than cities :) Having brick houses indicates wealth far more than having cars.
A lot of charities show images of people in huts, in villages without electricity or running water. I understand why they do that - to raise money for the people who actually live in those conditions - but I think it's the main reason some people think African civilization is just a bunch of straw huts. Those ads should start mentioning the fraction of people per country who actually live in those conditions.

I have a theory why so many Americans look dumb. It's maybe because they teach them at schools to always have their own opinions about everything and they have an extrovertic culture. So for them it's kind of a virtue if you're active and say something all the time, engage in something and express your opinions even if all of that is completely stupid. And there are very stupid people outside of the US but they're more likely to be quiet and not have opinions about everything (you can't really know everything anyway) because they don't want to look stupid while Americans just don't care.

We sound just like the rest of the country with the exception of the few idiots that believed the hype and started talking that way.

Shell Master Tortwag
Shell Master Tortwag - 3 years ago
+Varoon I think you missed one of the things I mentioned. First off, I've lived France all my life (putting aside occasionally traveling left and right), I was born there, so I got to see enough and remember enough to know - like you - what I'm talking about. Paris is where I was born and I frequently came back to it during every year's holidays, so there too, I know what I saw and heard.

Second, unlike most black people that are in France, my origins and culture don't come from the DOM-TOM. They come from Angola. This is why I mentioned that I faced Racism from both sides: because some black people didn't acknowledge me as "one of them" because my customs are different, and some white people didn't either for the obvious reason that I'm black. To put this in perspective, it's like you're a black person from the DOM-TOM moving to South Africa. Black people there may or may not act xenophobic with you for the simple reason that, obviously, your customs are not the same.

So you see, what I meant was pretty simple too. But again, it's not all of the people who are like this - and i mean heck, it was worst 30 years ago, so I can't complain too much.

Of course you're surprised. You're like the 10th person this year telling me you're surprised this year. Mais sérieusement, mec, t'as raison d'être surpris, mais moi je n'ai pas de raison d'exagérer. C'est ma vie. En fait, c'est la vie en général. Je suis pas le seul dans mon cas.

+Rimu N I wouldn't say "huge" but you are right

To put things into perspective, there are 11% afro-americans while blacks make up like 5% of the whole french population, citizens plus residents.

But that's still sufficient for people not to be surprised by a french speaking black because well many come from former french colonies like Côte d'Ivoire or Cameroune

+Varoon "Aren't you over-exaggerating?" I'm sorry but this is the LAST thing a person who's been through racism wants to hear. You probably heard it too, so you know what I mean.
Anyway, I wish I was.
Point is, there's something you don't seem to realize. The Black people you're talking about are French-speaking ones from overseas. I, on the other hand, come from a family that mostly speaks Portuguese (because they were born in Angola), so my culture is vastly different from theirs, even if I'm French too. In fact, go around the country and ask French people if they know what is and where is Angola. Most of them won't know, but they will know where and what Martinique and Congo are. Because, again, it's part of their French culture, while Angola was colonized by Portugal.
I've faced racism from both sides: a few (so not all of them, because France is still an awesome country) white people who didn't want anything to do with me 'cause I'm black, and black people who told me I was "too white" to suit them because of the way I spoke.

If you've faced racism too, which you apparently have, then you should know that someone talking about their lives and asking if they're "exaggerating" can be quite offensive. Please be careful: I'm cool with it 'cause I'm used to it, but France isn't the same everywhere. We both know that.

+Shell Master Tortwag I live in France and aren't you over-exaggerating? There are many black french people especially from the overseas department so noone is surprised to hear a well spoken black french.

I've actually faced racism from some blacks who said my origins (Indian) didn't suit them.

+Rimu The funniest thing about this is that I've lived the exact same things... But in France. And I'm French myself. But because I'm dark-skinned and therefore labelled as "African" (I've only been to my country of origins for two years and 3 weeks), I got the EXACT SAME qustions or ignorant remarks, such as how my French or English were so good, and what was my origin, which of course would explain my apparently "superior intellect" or "superior English" or "superior French". While all I did was reading, watching cartoons and movies, or like, play video games.
Coming across the exact same questions from Americans (though that was mostly online, I haven't been there myself yet) didn't even surprise me. Oh, except the part where they refused to believe that I was Black AND French. But seriously, it's just ignorants or people who don't travel much in general. I've had even some good friends who totally forgot that I was French, despite me hanging out with them.

+Rimu N I'm Kenyan too, and I literally had someone ask me how I got here (Australia) and I was fed up with those kinds of questions, so I told them that I had a special connection with all animals, so lions and elephants and rhinos carried me to the ocean and then killer whales and dolphins swam with me to the shore and then kangaroos and dingoes carried me the rest of the way. They asked me whether it was just me and I was like: "No, it's just the way things are in Africa, like we're all connected in the Circle of Life, so we all live together in peace and harmony". They asked where I got my clothes and I told them that ants had made them for me (never mind the fact that the clothes were clearly NOT even close to looking like plant matter). They believed it all, and I was able to hold it together, until they asked how my English was so good. I said the air hostesses on the plane taught me and they were so amazed...
I thought that was the end of it, but it turns out they went and told all their friends so I was asked to repeat the story over and over. I changed it each time, exaggerating more and more, and they STILL believed me (so did their friends). Finally, one of their friends was like: "Wait, didn't you say you were brought here by animals? So then how does an air hostess teach you English on a plane???"
That person hated me for the rest of our (unfortunate) encounters with one another but I honestly didn't care. I try to surround myself with people who think for themselves. If you're gonna sit there and let me drag you in circles that you buy into just because of stereotypes......BYE FELICIA!

Another thing I'm tired of constantly hearing:
"Is your hair real?"
"Can I touch it?"
"Is that your actual hair?"
"(after I went to school with natural hair one day and had extensions in by the next day) OMG, your hair grows so fast! I wish I had hair like that!"

Oh they even ask you how you came to America, like they think we came by ship. I once told someone I swam here and they were like "Really?" Another one is they think we live in the middle of the maasai mara and live a topless lifestyle in huts roaming free with animals. They think we have lions in our gardens and shit like that. I remember when I had only been here for two weeks and people kept asking my sister and I how our English was so good. We were so confused until we figured out they thought we learned English in America in the mere two weeks we had been there...They wanted to put us in ESL like the education was so superior. Pssh, aced regular English and ended up in honors classes. In college, actually helped people write literature papers...

If that was the one stupid question, I'd agree that there's a possibility she's just just bad at social interaction. But after two or three mind-numbing questions, there's no doubt that she actually does think these are legitimate questions.
Cruxador - 4 years ago
The latter, as I said from the beginning. As you're demonstrating, some people are quite bad at conversation and need all the help they can get. "are there waves in Africa" gives him the opportunity to talk about what the waves are like. Of course the short answer is "yes" but it's not supposed to just be a yes or no question unless he wants to blow her off.

Are you saying she was trying to learn? Or trying to let him say something smart?
Because whatever reason she said those things for, she was highlighting her own ignorance. If she thinks 'Are there waves in Africa' is a legitimate question that will give him the opportunity to say something, she really is uninformed.
As for 'Have you ever had AIDS?' from what he was saying, she believed him when he said you can get AIDS and recover. And she wasn't trying to learn about something general, if she was asking if he personally had it.

I guess each individual case is different, there are 1,4 million people of my "tribe" in whole world (which is approximately three times fewer than Welsh people), yet most of us speak our native language as the first one, but, of course, since we are so few, most of us speak at least 2-3 languages, as there is no way only one would be enough, unless someone lives in a rural area. History shows, language will not die out, if people speak it at home among themselves, then it doesn't matter if it's official or on contrary - suppressed by the state, which has happened in my country while it was under some empires.

Please don't go on about how respectful americans are abroad. I went to the Dominican Republic, and went on a boat ride. It was supposed to be a family-friendly thing, but most of the passengers were americans, and they were incredibly drunk. Once we were off the boat, they were grinding against each other in public, and one fell over and couldn't get up...
I understand not all Americans act that way, but Americans are certainly NOT the role model for respectful behavior abroad. For many Americans, there's a strong sense of pride, but for quite a few, the strongest sense is one of entitlement.

Americans are way more respectful than brits abroad, because as another guy said, they believe people are proud, and they show deep respect. I don't know welsh that much (I hook up with a girl once, just the accent was particular), but english tend to criticize a lot and (less than the french of course, but far from Irish, the most friendly), and the drinking and the "overweight" ladies.. damn, americans behave a lot better in that respect than brits (excluding northern Irish) . 

To be honest, I think you "oxford englishmen" exported to US show a sophisticated profile that most brits don't fulfill at all. There is a gloomy lack of hope, social resentment and all comes out with the alcohol (a great deal of violence in not absent either).

African actually is a lanuage, spoken in South Africa and a sister language of Dutch. However if someone isnt from South Africa its weird to ask. However did you also introduce yourself as being from Africa? As I could hardly imagine somebody from Eritrea would get that question. As it should be overall well known that its North east Africa. My topographical knowledge might sometimes be lacking when it comes to Africa, I'll be honest, but at least when I hear a countries name I can place it reasonably well, as not on the complete opposite of the fucking continent.

But then again, ignorant people live everywhere, America doesnt have a patent on them :p

Language in general is quite complicated. I've recently started reading on ancient languages, Semitic and Latin languages, to see the similarities and differences. We can't just come up with some stupid concept to unify a group of languages when even if you put these people in a room they won't be able to speak/understand each other fluently. No there is no such thing as African, European, Asian or American language. An Igbo man won't be able to converse with Dinka man, A Japanese man won't be able to converse with a Chinese man who speaks mandarin etc.

Few Americans have asked me if New Zealand is a real country, and while I was in LA I was told several times that I speak good English. 'Murica.

Well in America people often say they’re from a city or town or state and if you’re foreign we usually expect you to say the continent you’re from we almost never hear about New Zealand, the only thing I know about New Zealand is Flight of the Conchords. Most Americans forget everything they learn in geography, if it isn’t in the USA, we usually don’t care unless it’s Europe or the Caribbean.

+LylaN93 I'm saying that New Zealand is a conspiracy, or an "inside job". The implication here is that New Zealand isn't real, and that it is a conspiracy. Why would someone doubt you when you said you come from New Zealand is my question. And in response to such oddity, I exaggerate the question and make it a declaration. It's also a barb against conspiracy theorists who take certainty from a lack of knowledge and export their looniness onto others. Does that make sense?

No cunt, you lie. Have you heard anyone dying from heat waves in Africa ? It happens in Europe and America all the time. I guess you didn't even know that Australia is the world driest habitable continent.

When I first came to the US, and someone would ask me how I got here, I would go into a LOOONG explaination of how i started with a dingy, then a Elephant ride, and I would use the names of cities I would think the person might have heard about.

+Guillermo Sulvale That's a risk you take, though most decent people know whether what they believe is a stereotype. You may have to prove yourself to not be an idiot, though.

+DeepBlue That is bullshit. "How'd you get here" is just an American idiom for "why'd you come to the US" or "what's your story". They are most likely just genuinely interested in your story. That's not to say there aren't any racists, because there are, but you can't make that assumption based on a single question.

As far as the Republican debates go, they are pandering to the most extreme right-wing, nationalist 20% of Americans that actually vote in the Republican primaries. Once the general election starts, they'll all drop the racist rhetoric because they know they have to speak to the normal Americans that won't put up with that shit.

IF you are still in the USA, just listen to the Republican debates. All of them (directly or indirectly) keep hinting that most colored (latino, mid eastern, south Asians, etc)  are illegals & should be sent back .... even though one of the candidates (Bobby Jindal) is a colored fellow, born of immigrant south Asian parents.

( I am presuming you are non-white).... in USA, when they ask this question to a (non black / non native) colored person, they usually are "politely" trying to find out if you are legally or illegally there in the USA.
Most white Americans assume that most colored people in USA have entered illegally (and the rest as refugees).
