Dekiruman saidIf there's one thing I've learned, it's that being black is way more fun in virtually every other country. Even extremely xenophobic societies like japan don't really treat you differently. You'll get discriminated against maybe for being American, but racial identity is not going to be nearly as much of a factor in 90% of the rest of the world for you as it will be in the US.
That's very true. In Europe, you are often better off being a black American than a white American because of the association of white American culture with extreme political points of view (including very racist ones), patriotism, anti-Europeanism, and far more pro-international war, which in the general European viewpoint are extremist right, like how the KKK is comparable to neo-Nazi-ism.
Edit: also, they are highly fascinated with black American musical culture (jazz, blues, soul, disco, funk, hiphop) and kind of look at black American's as an exotic representative of that fascinating culture.
