    I strictly wanted to comment on today’s episode pertaining to the lack of knowledge Sira’s roommates had on Africa. I admire how she chose to educate her ignorant, asinine roommates about their African roots. By being an African myself, I’ve learned to not waist my time nor effort in enlightening those who choose to remain ignorant and immature about their ancestral heritage or African culture. I commend her for her grace & elegance; Ashley L. & Shavon truly lacks both characteristics.

    I defintely agree. As a first generation Sierra Leoneon in America, I find it at times fruitless to engage people on Africa especially African Americans when they are defensive. It’s encouraging though to see and hear about more African-Americans wanting to know about their history beyond slavery. I was really taken aback though by college students who should have learned basic geography in grade school who were clueless as to where African countries were located and also not knowing that Africans speak thousands of languages and not a universal one. This is definitely a reflection of their parents…we need to stop the generational perpetuation of ignorance especially within black communities.

    I had a chance to watch the show whilst Sira was defining and extrapolating the African-ness and its beauty. Unfortunately her “black” girlfriends so vainly tried to distance themselves from association to the motherland. What a shame!
    I’m from UK studying medicine in Boston, and the girls behavior just reinforced the notion that many black-born and bred people in the US are not proud of their blackness, and would rather diss Africa. I’m happy to report that it isn’t so in England. Blacks in UK frequent the Motherland for vacations and schools.
    Sira, keep representing. You are a gorgeous dame.

    Man I hate this stupid topic. Of course human life originated in Africa. Does that make everyone african? Hell no! How are africans gonna discredit every other nationality that came after their own. Im proud of my blackness 100%, but understand that I am not African. If I am, then why do African men not see me as “African” when it comes to ME dating their daughters? Why do I get mean looks and stares from african men in Nigeria? Am I not african? Nope. Everyone knows that Africa is a male dominated society. And most know that in America, African men are known as some of the most arrogant, self centered men around! Originally im sure MY ROOTS can be traced back to Africa. My father was born and raised in Haiti, does that make me Hatian-American? Nope!
    Im just American, just like white people who are decendents of French, Irish, Itailian, Greek, Croation, and all the rest. Why dont they get a special catagory? MAYBE YOUR UNHAPPY WITH YOURSELVES, AND WANT TO MAKE AS MANY PEOPLE RELATE TO YOU.

    When you say things like that you disrespect your own heritage and ancestors. The difference between your ancestors and those french and italian guys is that thier ancestors (in most cases) chose to make thr trip to America and thus become “Americans”. Your own ancestors had no such idea or plan in mind when they were forcefully brought here.
