Booty dancing in Africa is intertwined with a culture of lifelong marriages, and is not performed in panties or thongs.
Unlike booty dancing in america, the execution and movements of these dances are not vulgar. There are certain limitations to the degree in which "sexy dancing" is carried as to not become whorish, but what you see in america is a no-holds-barred approach that diviates away from traditional African dances (note that some Africans themselves have diviated from traditional dress and dance as a result of western influence), and the cultural practices associated with them, into the realm of vulgarity.
To point out the absence of marital association with these dances, along with the corrupted & perverted nature of them in contrast to the traditional clothing and execution of the dances, is not a form of seeing black women through the eyes of white men. If African american women adopt the dress, dance modifications, and marital culture associated with booty dancing in Africa I will GLADLY promote it, because this would lead to more fathers being in the lives of children, increse our value for marriage, and would strengthen the black family / community. The act of honoring the dancing ALONE in the context of this society is unacceptable in my book.
Mapouka, also known under the name of "Macouka", is a traditionaldancefrom the south-east of the Ivory Coast in the area of Dabou, sometimes carried out during religious ceremonies.
This dance has daring choreography that can be very sexually suggestive. The dances mostly involve women shaking their buttocks (erotic) sideways vigorously, facing away from their audience. In the years 1980, artists of the Ivory Coast tried without much success to popularize it. One of the most well known groups is Tueuses de Mapouka.
In 1998, the government of the Ivory Coast decided to prohibit its performance in public. It is, paradoxically, following this prohibition that the dance now enjoys a very fast-growing global following, especially in the sub-Saharan countries and western nations with large Francophone communities
