I don't think you could identify any of these so-called "nations" as being particularly influenced by it, although possibly a few are rather *less* influenced by African-Americans' culture.

I think you're missing the point.

If African-Americans as a group aren't at least one of the nations of North America, then the whole concept behind 11 nations is bunk.

The problem isn't that African-American culture doesn't dominate any one of those regions. It's that this shows that if there are different nations in North America, they're not regional.
