Cappucinosmom, I used to teach in Harlem. The area where I worked was predominantly Afr.American but has a quickly growing African population.
Yes- I did notice a lot of ill treatment toward Africans by Afr. Americans, even by students in my school (obviously learning it from their parents). I'm not sure what it stems from, but there's a lot of animosity there. More than once, I had to have the whole "Black Americans come from Africa" teachable moment. I was told by several students that they didn't "know nothing about no Africa". Out of the mouths of babes come the voices of their parents.
I feel like maybe that has more room for misconceptions and tensions just because it is so much more emotionally charged a history.
