WHY DOES EVERYONE ASSUME AFRICANS ARE SMARTER THAN AFRICAN AMERICANS?
Where did this stereotype come from? If this is true then why are the homelands of these so called africans so tarnished and poor? Why don't they take their education and help their people? If they are so educated? Asians are educated and look at their countries and military! Euros are educated and look at their countries and military! So there's this big epidemic of educated africans yet africa has nothing to show for? I know not all of africa is poor but the majority IS!

Which goes to prove that it isn't race that determines academic excellence or lack thereof but culture.

It is because in the West we get most of the creme of the crop of Africa or the brains & elites of Africa.

So while we get the top of Africa in the West.

African Americans are just typical Negroes.

In reality Africa is way more stupid however the Africans who migrate to the West from Africa are typically more Intelligent than African Americans by a lot due to selective migration brain drain.

Look at the numbers of africans who do well in school and now look at black americans
Wrong, wrong, and more wrong. There's plenty of private elite schools in Chicago Illinois. You think there just full of Africans..? No sweetie, mostly AA's. The type of schools you have to be accepted to from high gpa's. Africans aren't better and don't stereotype all AA's. They want a great education as well..

Where is your evidence that the so called "creme of the crop" Africans or the "elites" are the primary ones who come here? I meet Africans all the time, and they don't exhibit any greater patterns of higher intelligence than any one else, yet they still perform better than Americans on average because they are more ambitious.

Most educated and intelligent Africans don't leave Africa at all, and the Middle Class in Africa is increasing exponentially.

Explain why this is.

Equitorial Guinea boasts a higher GDP per capita than any other African country, including the northern ones (Berbers/Arabs) and most Middle eastern countries, as well as some southeastern Asian countries and most Latin American countries.

Why are white racists so intellectually inferior to me?

In reality its the AA's that give off a air of inferiority & feel the need to compare them self's to everyone. The majority of AA's even those with degrees are dumb, unsophisticated & behave as vulgar as those living in the hood. You can look up neighborhood crime statistics for AA areas and its virtually the same whether in the hood or in the suburbs! Another thing immigration to the U.S doesn't require a high intelligence. But leave it up to AA's to find excuses to why they are lagging behind every other culture on many levels! You people need to look internally for answers to these questions & quit projecting on other peoples! It's tacky as can be but its what yall do best.

Aaman, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. The elite? what planet are you from. I'm African, west African. I don't think there's such a thing as elite Africans. There's the rich, middle class, poor,and dirt poor. It's all about education and the education system. Students in America have "rights" that African/Caribbean students can only dream of. Teachers in Developing countries can and will embarrass you for incorrect answers/responses. African Parents will usually side with the teachers. Tests, quizzes and assignments are generally easier in the States. for example, there is no such thing as "multiple choice" in Africa or the Caribbean. This gives students no other choice than to know the material inside out. Education is "a must" in Developing countries, it is the ONLY way to succeed. The opportunity to "get rich quick" doesn't exist. Therefore, the only way to a good/better life is through Education.
