This maybe a bit complex for you to understand but Black Americans have a very special history in comparison with other ethnic groups. Our culture is a combination of West African influences (for some of us it's even more specific depending on our families) and other ethnic influences because our culture was taken away from us to cause discord among our ancestors and subservience to their slave owners. Due to this we lost many of our African influences, including our original cuisines, although luckily certain aspects still remain but like many cultures, if you ever decided to pick up a book, have fusion cuisines that may eventually become a food staple to them.
Culture, and the various aspects of it, are very very complex. We learn about this to an extent in school, but maybe you were asleep when your teacher was explaining and shame on you for that.
Reading Various Books and of course Common Sense! Yay!
