I'll tell you my point as quick as possible
This is what you post
This is the article in full context
Very selective and protected, almost dismissive on influences.
If were to say Jamaica influenced American BBQ, I'd get killed here. But there it is, in your article.
So in your limited mind every Black American got on a boat and went down to Jamaica to learn how to barbque?
So basically your crazy ass is saying that African Americans did not bring that cooking style with them from Africa and that there is no connection the Hausa slaves? But aren't you being dismissive of Hausa slaves that brought that cooking style with them to Jamaica?
So here I am acknowledging a possible contribution by Africans to African American cuisine, but your dumb ass is saying that I am not acknowledging the influence other Black people contributions to African American cuisine.
