thank you for sharing your thoughts but this community is not strictly about West African cuisine. It's about West African cuisine and cuisine in the Americas influenced by it. Southern Black American cuisine is certainly influenced by West African styles of cooking and has morphed into a very distinct cuisine of its own.
As has Caribbean and Afro-Latin cuisine. As for your "advice" as you put it, no need to be so defensive. This community is about sharing information and people learning from it. Bottom line there's absolutely no connection between East and North African foods and styles of cooking with that of the West.
Keep in mind that Africa is a continent not a country. The North, South, East, West and Central parts of it are diversely as different as the people and cultures who inhabit those regions. I would love for you to continue participating in the community but if the parameters of the community don't work for you, I understand and say be well. Make it a GREAT day!!!
