32824, Are any of you from Africa (not by descent)?

I can remember as a teen wearing african paraphanalia... not knowing anything about it, because I thought it was "afrocentric". As an adult, I have absolutely no interest in it now. I find African culture to be rich and enlightening, but it isn't something I identify with 100%... mainly because I only know american culture... just like 99% of black folk. The funny thing about it is, there are a zillion different cultures/ethnicities in Africa, how do you choose the one you want? How far do you trace your lineage to find where you truly come from? Or do you accept your american culture and move on?
