The original post was of a little girl dancing… I found some of the remarks to be without merit and stated so.

This little girl is an accomplished performer.
Contrary to popular belief Africans on the Continent dont spend all day in traditional clothing… matter of fact she looks like any little girl around the way, no matter what country they are in.
It is disheartening to realize that not many even know what African Dance consists of, that they speak of it in terms of it being something foreign to their nature yet most claim to be of African descent.
Folks it is more than time to get in touch with your roots and explore the various cultures and customs of African societies.
Africa has to be more than “that place they brought out Ancestors from”
Visit, Read, Watch Videos.. most of all LEARN CULTURAL ACCEPTANCE…
One of the major problems with travelers is that they think they’re country is the norm, when you get back to Africa (so Ive been told and have observed (videos) that there is NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN… we are simply recalling movements that our Ancestors placed in our DNA.
I was blessed to be sent to Jamaica to go to school.. otherwise I would think they were strange as well.
