I am white and my background is Welch, Irish and German. I do not display artifacts from these countries throughout my home. Nor do I wear kilts and dress that are worn in these countries. I interpret people that dress or decorate their homes ‘African’ as people who are prejudice and have race issues. When I try to analyze why I take it this way, I can only conclude that my life experience with people who surround theirselves in African themes and clothing are angry at white people, because media shows this usually attached to a racial issue. Even putting the race issue aside, it puzzles many whites why people do this when they don’t decorate with their heritage.
