    Wait what? :eek: What do the Africans have to do with this?

    Secondly, this is probably next years new and improved version of the Apple watch. :rolleyes::D

    FYI There are "white" people in Africa. It's a geographical location.

    I think he meant some of Somalian scumbags who rip people off. Could have said it a bit more eloquently but yeah, don't think it was meant as racist.

    We don't even know if it's from Africa do we? It says Central NJ on the f-n page.

    Don't really care. I just don't go around looking for reasons to judge people. Just waiting for a watch;)

    I was going to write the same. There are more whites in S. Africa then any other race so if someone thinks someone is being racist by writing "Africians", who is really racist?! Wammo

    I love how the one in the background apparently has a "slide to unlock" thing as well.

    1. Hey genius, the picture with the guy wearing the watch I'm sure is a pic they took from the Internet to go along with the post.

    2. It is well known craigslist and Facebook are feeding grounds for Nigerian scam artists. It's no different from tax fraud and Haitaian Americans.

    3. I May not be African, but I'm Black. I'm not being racist. Maybe stereotypical, but not racist..........

    You being black has nothing to do with whether this could be considered racist/inappropriate. I'm African American/Black and that doesn't give you, me or anyone a free pass to make crazy ass comments.

    Yo, chill,

    The comment maybe could have been specified a bit more, but nonetheless, my comment is more than likely correct. The guy called me a racist. I was pointing out I too was black so his opinion of me was a little off. Stereotypical I admit my comment was but my reason for suggesting an African was the culprit behind the bogus craigslist post is well justified since Nigerians have a HUUUUGE reputation for scamming people via craigslist and eBay.


    All I said was those Africans (Nigerians are in fact African) are ruthless. I didn't call them dark monkey scumbag thieves. Now that would have been wrong. Get a grip.

    That's exactly what I thought too. People are too quick to attack

    Fun fact:

    Africa is to Africans as America is to Americans.
