Er... I don't think his grandparents were from Africa... or America, for that matter.

(the Swiss have never known African Americans-- only Africans. Proud, educated, strong people like us are both threatening and something they can't understand)
Are you really telling us that the "only Africans" are uneducated, weak people compared to you "African Americans"???

Re: Am I the only African American around Zurich???

So you lived here for 6+ years and couldn't manage to find any African/Americans or anyone who would understand your unique experiences??? Strange.

At least the Swiss guys tried

Perhaps they're not all as bad as first expected.

Going going gone.. And "offline!"

Good luck finding anyone to spend time with you
...but hard luck on anyone they find, methinks!


Now where's that "Ignore" button again?

Re: Am I the only African American around Zurich???

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall righty then, that was fun. For the sake of the OP (I'm referring to KNM, not the thread starter), I'm closing this thread so that she can take a few minutes to decide whether she wants to start over again. We'd all welcome a new thread from her in which she expresses her desire to meet up with other African-Americans in Switzerland ... just maybe without the attitude.

Maybe there are one or two EFers who haven't read the preceding yet and may be inclined to help.

Let's hope.
