A friend of mine recently told me some things interesting about the African guys studying in our local varsities. With all the hidden prejudices he said that an African guy will only be your friend (applies only to guys) if:
- He wants your money. - In my experience the few Africans I talked to seemed to have a strong affinity to money. My friends also talk about how some African guys are so interested in borrowing money.
- He wants to know your girlfriends (not in the passionate sense). - It's a fact that some African cultures are offensively misogynistic.
- You are African. - What do you expect when the idiom "birds of a feather flock together" almost always holds true (at least not for me).
- He wants your backside (another friend added in a "racist" manner)
