I was always into are and music, never really into sports, but I was not bad on the court, but it was not my focus. A lot of young people, not just AA's, focus on sports like crazy. I believe a few of those atheletes have college degrees as well.

One of my nephews is in college on a scholarship, he plays football, the other one wants to go to the art institute. Hes a great dancer, and he is a great artist as well. I can draw, sing (never use it), and I love history. I was always good at science, but I hate it. I think if people put their minds to it, we all have a gift that can enrich the world, and I believe people are made to do certain things in this world. Everybody cant be everything. If I was a gifted athelet, I would use it to my advantage. I went to school twice, and Im still not satisfied with my career, but Im locked down at a job I dont care for. My next focus is what I always wanted to do, which is music, but Im not quitting my day job over it.

My co-worker got his transfer to another department, but they kept trying to write him up for no reason at all for months! He got his transfer. Hes a very nice guy.
Employers don't write people up for no reason. All they ask is that the person actually do the work they're being paid to do. Is that too much to ask?

They do things like that to immigrants here. They do it to keep them locked in a certain department. Write ups are hard to shake here at my job. He is a great worker.

That's a lie! Ive heard some women being written up because they were Sexually harassed by a Mgr or Senior Manager. As well as some women are not promoted for the same reasons!

As far as Africans they work their ass's office like the East Indians do as well as they get married and take care of their families.

African American men in many cases are "marginal or lazy" mainly focus on trying to sex women. Black males perfer to be players than to strive to accoomplish anything!

I know a few who work hard but many of the black males in the company are very marginal do the minimum!

MACEO your a FOOL! LMAO

Some immigrants do well; some don't. I've also seen White males go up and down on the jobs and don't survive working for certain White males.

Sometimes its not racism! Things happen to White, Black, Asian, and women!

Sir,
Knowing that you're an Afro European yourself, i feel say extremely odd that you have such a negative opinion on your own family roots...
We can examine your arguments with serenity.
Impact of the Roman empire : yes but the Roman empire died during the IVth and it's impact on the Indian and Chinese world or on the Amerindians was null, zero. Only a tiny fringe of Africa was concerned too.
So is it so different from the vast African empires of that region in the end ?
As for the impact of the Arabs, the British and may I add (i see the jingoism ... and Mr Cameron's opt out from Europe ...) the French AND the Spaniards - if you think that Spanish language is conquering all the Americas apart from Brazil and Canada : yes you're right on that.
Now you can ask yourself if this "impact" has always been a good thing and for the best ? Obviously the answer is "no". The shame of slavery, slave trade, oppression, destructions, mass killings cannot be forgotten : in this accountant book, you have 2 columns, a positive and a negative.
At least none of the Western-Central African states had such a negative column.
For the rest it's a question of historical opportunity at one moment. The Chinese looked at Europeans as ridiculous Barbarians during the early Middle Ages but they were conquered and dominated by the same white Barbarians in the XIXth. The Khmer empire had an incredibly rich artistic production and a sophisticated system of irrigation and a complex administrative organization far more advanced than the Europeans at the same time though ultimately it crumbled down to the point that Khmers themselves have forgotten their own history when French explorers discovered the ruins of Angkor. During centuries the Austrian empire dominated Central Europe and after 1918, it vanished.
Are the West and Central Africans unable to drive the modern economy ? Not at all. Have they shown any specific inability whether in the Diaspora (Europe and Northern America) or in their countries ? Not at all.
Many Europeans are impressed by the "take off" of Africa at large and this includes Western and Central Africa.
The aging E.U., entrapped in pettiness (Cameron, Merkel, the Danes the Poles etc.), fighting over a budget of 1% of GDP, extra rich and unable to protect herself from the US financial crisis and China, unable except the French (!) to have a foreign policy, too often deaf and blind may create for herself a bleak future.
If the Africans at large are taking the best of us and carefully avoid the numerous weaknesses of the E.U. BUT creating their own model(s), their future could be much more promising than ours.
Don't judge too quickly on the past, consider the potential for the future.
i would refrain on what we call in French debates "essentialisme" : to imprison a category or a whole population is a definite role for ever.

I just ordered a films called "Five Hundred Years Later", which concerns the situation of Black people the world over. I saw it once some time ago.
Perhaps after viewing it again I will start a thread on the situaion of the BLACK WORLD(S), and both the American and European diasporas.

The chances of a Black woman finding a “Good” Black man are extremely slim, according to a study by Best Black Dating Sites.
The study claims that only about 2% of Black men fulfill the criteria of being a good, qualified partner.

The criteria was primarily based on data compiled on whether the eligible Black men were heterosexual, good-looking, successful, or childless.

What do you think about their findings?

Sir,

LOL you had me a good smile on this one.

i'm sure not tribal with most of my white fellows :-)

As for Hebrew Israelites, it's a question of God's Chosen People so it's open to various interpretations and there is nothing irrational to claim for a group to be this Chosen People.
Naturally others can contest your claim and atheists or people who do not go by the Scriptures at all can also reject the very idea of a Chosen People.

Someone ignorantly trashed in a post sir Ashanti king - though i do not condone his negative vision of American Blacks - saying some nonsense about his language : English is the teaching language in Ghana and the major local language is not "Zulu" (!!!) but the noble Twi.
Those who are quick to nit pick posters on minor mistakes in English should be exemplary themselves and be able to master to a T several foreign languages and at least one African language for ex.
That's something i try to learn and believe me it's terribly hard ... So i'm always AMAZED by the linguistic skills of many Africans - even with mistakes - who feel necessary to learn our white colonial Western languages (English, French, Portuguese, some have the German). In addition with sometimes 2 or 3 local languages.
i never saw any reason for cheap mockery in that.

Well I am an Atheist so I do not even acknowledge the whole ''chosen people'' nonsense.

One shouldn't take that characters among other ''African American'' vs central-west African arguments on here serious as a mere 400 years ago most of their ancestors were in the same place living the same way. If anything it's amusing to read especially when one side is calling the other tribal.

I believe me growing up around nobody of the same backgrounds as me and removed from their cultures yet still had a good life helped me to not be a tribal person.

@ attai1

Also in London or my part almost every black descent person I know myself included are made up of more than one background then a significant amount are already mixed race

eg some I can think of are:
North Sudanese/South African/West African
Jamaican/Dominican/St Kitts
Congolese/Ghanaian
Jamaican/English
Ghanaian/English
Jamaican/Pakistani
Nigerian/Jamaican
Jamaican/Ugandan
Guyanese/Irish
Nigerian/Brazilian

I believe the next generation it will be even more from the children I've seen being born in recent years eg:

North Sudanese/South African/West African/Ghanaian/English/Irish

North Sudanese/South African/West African/Turkish

Jamaican/English/Sierra Leonne/Congolese

Jamaican/Dominican/St Kitts/English

Jamaican/Pakistani/Maltese/Fil ipino

I must say the ones of Jamaican descent are mixing all over the place.

In all I believe London must hold the least tribal blacks in the world, well my generation.

Is it the same in Paris?
