Episode 5: You called me African what?
"You're black, but you ain't BLACK black."
Like many African kids in the US, Stoop host Hana Baba was ridiculed for being from Africa. She was called names like "African booty scratcher." And the name-calling came only from the black kids.
What is behind this black disconnect and where did it come from? The Stoop explores this with a young Sudanese American and her African American friends.
