So how come when caribbeans and African come to America and do the same things aas are doing and most of the times out achieve them. With the great American media and opportunity anyone who tries is able to succeed.

Not true at all. Hip hop culture was developed by people living in the Bronx who were both AAs and Caribbeans. There is a reason why, among the forefathers of the culture, there is a mix of both.

And this has been shown in so many hip hop documentaries.

Also, even West Coast rappers have love for emcees of Caribbean heritage.

<quoted text>The large majority of "black first" have been African-Americans descended from slaves. What's your point? There isn't a group on earth that has achieved more in the face of greater odds than African-Americans.
Jewish Americans, Asian Americans, Caribbean American have all achieved a lot despite their low population and other obstacles that stand in their way. Most foreigners come having to work, go to school and take care of their entire family, if you don't call that obstacle and plus the language barrier. Even with all that odds, most are able to achieve the American dream that has evaded most aas, so spare me that crap about aa superiority.

comments from some of the posters on this thread is just plain stupid. if aa saw caribbeans or any other non-convensional black american as 'other' there would be no garvey, or farrakhan, or obama.
aa and caribbeans mix on the EC like peanut butter and jam. the idea that there has ever been tension is unheard of. but i'm not gonna say you'd never see some kinda xenophobia in other parts of the country, like the south.
now there has been some isolated incidents between aa and africans. but never between aa and caribbeans. caribbeans melt right into the aa community with ease.
Doesn't surprise me at all. And I'm willing to bet that when there is xenophobia in the EC, it's mostly from new immigrants, not people who lived in the EC most of their lives. That's what it is like in Toronto for the most part.

Don't forget non aa blacks have given black Americans a lot of first.

.First black president non traditional aa
2. First us attorney general non traditional aa
3. First black Joint chief of staff non traditional aa
4.Shirley Chisolm first black woman to serve in congress
5.sidney Poitier first black to make big in hollywood

Non aa blacks have given aas so many first, despite being small in population and recently immigrating to the USA.

Why are African-Americans better athletes than other blacks? Why are African-Americans better singers than other blacks? Why are African-Americans better dancers than other blacks? Why are African-Americans better entertainers than other blacks? Why have African-Americans made more contributions to the fields of science and technology than other blacks? Why have the world's black movers and shakers overwelmingly had a black American bloodline?

And do you think it's fair to catagorize black Americans as equals with other blacks since they've achieved more(far more) under near impossible circumstances?(jim crow, segregation, the slave mentality, lynchings, having a minority status in a racist white society etc.

Non aas don't really care about dancing and singing or rapping. I will get slap if I ever told my parents that I want to be a singer or worst a rapper and that goes for 99.9% of Africans. Shittt u can't even talk about becoming a ytging except for doctors, lawyers, engineers. You can have your great dancers and singers, because we have all seen the prosperity and the upward mobility that those talents have given the aa community. "Not". Jewish people can't sing, dance or jump yet they control almost all those industry and pay aas I would rather take the Jewish root.

They are Americans so try can't do anything for us. I don't consider them Africans, Caribbean or aa, so I don't expect nothing from them.

And may i add some of the most prominent position in the world are held by non aa blacks. With all the aa talents you would think that will be relevant in world politics and economics but nope. If I am correct there are 0.9% of aas on global stage.

I don't even argue about which group of Blacks is better, we are all practically useless. Arguing about which black group is king is like saying which group is king of the garbage heap. We are a failed race ashanti king!

Because people like you who claim to be AA are destroying the great reputation that strong AAs such as MLK have built with your petty tribalist attitudes.
