They are women of two worlds: they know Africa and also understand the West. Most of these women wanted a way out of the sorrow and the lack of opportunities in Kenya, Guinea, Botswana, Liberia, and Eritrea and elsewhere.Why do African men go home to marry the “unknowns” instead of marrying the proven and the reliable here in the US? Once, he was the man who moved mountains and parted the heavens so it rained. The modern times have not been exactly good to him because of the multiplying effects of globalization and modernity. In Nigeria, Cameroon, Mali, Madagascar and Mauritania, it is about running away from the fetid and stifling conditions that stunts dreams and kill optimism. Therefore, when presented with the opportunity to hop, they pack and run!
In the US at least, one could petition for his future wife by way of the Fiancé Visa provision or through outright marriage which could take upward of twenty months. But why do African men go though this tortuous and circuitous immigration process?

This is not a post telling you to date an African man over an African-American man. It is about giving our motherland brothers a chance.For some, the idea of dating an African man conjures up a lot of myths and fears like the image of the over-controlling man.These types of parties, whether big or small, are taking place all over the US.
