When people talk about the 'privilege' AfAm have over Black Africans, I assume they're talking about the Global North-South situation. While AfAm are disenfranchised and oppressed in the USA, in the context of the rest of the world you ARE 'American'. And that MEANS something, whether you want to acknowledge it or not. It's why Black Pan-African solidarity needs to be a nuanced POLITICAL conversation and process rather than an assumption that we all GET IT bc we're Black.
