"Also take note--many Africans are jealous of your AA worship of American Indians (as I confessed that I was). If we can see, which we can, that you are obviously a Yoruba-Fulani-Denkinyira...then it infuriates us that you do not mention it, but talk incessantly about "Cherokees, etc." "
I don't think it's jealousy, it is legitimate, especially when they are culturally African American(I hope it is clear from my posts, having the blood is not enough, but cultural embrace and politics matter, at least to me, so that i know what team you on). I also shutter when i hear black Americans (african Americans)parade their Native American blood; I have no problem with acknowledging your bloodline, but when its done to de-valorize your Africanity, it is problematic.
