You do know that black people exist outside of the US right? because I doubt black people in England speak like black people in the US… white people don’t really say “cheers” either, its british people that say it, of all colors
Agreed that British people say cheers but we don’t say candy and if we didn’t we would most like be mocked. Nothing wrong with saying candy but because we normally say sweets or chocolate it sounds wrong.
The whole Halloween as a major festival (and money-spinner for corporations) thing is pretty much an American import anyway. As such, I reckon they are British and are saying candy because of the connotations of getting candy at Halloween.
I think Aussies say cheers also. And Welsh people definitely do. The (boring) plot thickens.
No a black person in Europe wouldn’t say they were African unless they were from Africa. Especially if they were Caribbean, for example. Skin colour differs from ethnicity. Or bollocks as the person above me said.
