West Africans and Bantu are normally considered separate by Language family, Niger-Congo A and B come to mind. A lot of Brazilian slaves were Bantu, being from Angola, the Congo, and Mozambique.

said, African Americans and Africans normally find themselves divided into their own communities based on nationality( usually Kenyan, Nigerians, and Ghanaians) rather than partaking in the African American supermajority. Africans view AAs as wasting the opportunities America offers and push their childern extremely hard to succeed, being more similar to Asians in their parenting than AAs. I remember a Kenyan friend of mine telling me about his disappointment in finding a pretty girl he got along with but dating her would be taboo since she's from a different Kenyan tribe. African Americans usually dislike Africans due to the way they suck up to authority or are completely indifferent. Most of the dislike exhibited by Africans are from first generation Africans, second generation tend to favor AAs more but are still pushed to excel by there parents.
