When Europe started to interact with Africa 2-3 centuries ago, the white culture promoted the idea that black males are hugely endowed and that it makes them somewhat closer to animals than humans. This was also to prove the inferiority of black people and hypersexualize black male bodies.
But really they were jealous. :3
I feel that if more black men knew the truth behind boasting the whole “I’m black so I’m REALLY PACKIN’” cliche, they might think twice about it…there’s nothing wrong with having a big one…but damn, don’t you know that cliche was created in order to make you look like a freak? no, not the good-in-bed type of freak…just…a freak O_O
Yup. I’m pretty sure the early slavers who sold Africans (especially from the Congo-Zaire region, as a study shows men with the largest penises come from that area), saw this, and became jealous; and like all jealous people tried to turn a positive into a negative. This was probably also a precursor to the infamous “master’s wife and field hand” fetishization of Black men in America.
And the reason I brought up the statistic for Congolese men being reputed to have the biggest dicks in the world, is because a LOT of the traditional Congolese dances are centered on fertility and flirtation (of course, you have dances for healing and general social occasions).
In fact, one dance I learned was actually quite…salacious. The lyrics to the song literally translated to this:
Make sure you move your hips right, to stir your woman’s womb.
Make sure your dick is big enough or you won’t successfully please your woman.
I thought it was hysterical, but the dance is centered on a lot of hip movement and coy courtship steps. There’s also a dance like this in the Fulani tribes of Nigeria, in which the lyrics of a particular dance depict the group singing about a couple that got caught doing the nasty within earshot of the rest of the clan.
My guess is, since a vast majority of slaves were taken from Central and West Africa, white men decided to turn these qualities that Africans themselves held in high esteem, into a sort of mutation that should be viewed as uncivilized and freakish. The jealousy is so obvious too.
So really, Black men have no reason to be ashamed of bragging about this cliche/stereotype, as it was always bragged about, but if they knew the history behind how it has affected their ancestors and their daily life and their descendants, they’d have a care with their bragging.
Does it bother/anger African American people that there is a chance that they will never know where in Africa they are from? Discussion would be nice. I’m Nigerian-American so this has always…
Pretty much what Riley said. I love my Haitian identity. It saddens me that I can only trace my family back about 200 years at most, but at least I have that 200 years and a rich culture to fall back on.
Well, it’s slightly different for me cause the feels are on different sides of the family. Only one of my parents is West Indian, the other is Black American. Both slave-descended/colonized, but my mom has no desire for culture because West Indians were ALLOWED to have their culture and claim it as theirs.
Pops on the other hand…though he might say he has “Louisiana Creole” culture which is a thing if I think about it carefully.
It bothers the hell out of me and if you have seen anything that went on about my name change it brought all of that to light. It’s very painful to consider that not only will I probably never know where I am from African does not want me to begin to identify with any specific country or culture within it because I have no proof of my ancestry beyond being black.

I love when omnivores take jabs at vegan food, this alien food is literally made from everything that is naturally grown on this planet. Veggies, beans, wheat…God yes so outlandish! Way way grosser than eating the inners of a of dead animal! The skin, meat, fat, veins and tendons. De-lish. Yes, we’re at the top of the food chain, that’s why we need tools and slaughterhouses. Do you get hungry when you drive past road kill on the street? If someone offered you a veggie burger or the dead animal you saw on the street, what would you pick? Take down a cow on all fours, then take his/her life with your big bad canine teeth then proceed to eat the cow as is. Humans are cowards, we’re not the top of the food chain.
