You are so full of it.

Here you are talking about "the black failed race" as is it is something terrible you are ashamed of yet you have the same tribalist mentality that keeps many blacks down.

The media does not promote black businesses but AAs are involved in business.

"Among states, New York had 204,032 Black-owned businesses and accounted for slightly more than 10 percent of the nation's Black-owned businesses. It was followed by Georgia, with 183,874 Black-owned businesses (9.6 percent) and Florida, with 181,437 (9.4 percent). Among counties, Cook, Ill.(the location of Chicago) had the most Black-owned businesses with 83,733. Los Angeles followed with 59,680 and Kings, N.Y.(Brooklyn) with 52,705 businesses. For cities, New York had the most (154,929) followed by Chicago (58,631), Houston (33,062) and Detroit (32,490)."

While places like New York and Central/South Florida have a lot of black immigrants, Georgia, Los Angelos, Chicago, Houston and Detroit are AA dominated.

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?

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.

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.

You guys need to stop trying to make an issue where there is none.
How many times must I say that I like Caribbeans people. I give them their credit for creating rap music but I would not say they created the whole hip hop culture that now dominates american youths. And one of my favorite rappers is the notorious big.

Yeah but if we wait on Africans then we will be waiting forever. Unless you are saying that any groups of blacks can help by going to Africa to try and stabilize the place.

no one gets bent outta shape over aa/caribbean marriage or any other type of afro-diaspora coupling, on the EC. the fact that someone might be caribbean or afro-latino or cape verde or whatever, would hardly ever come up other than as a minor footnote.

That's your opinion, I would rather have a Barack obama than a mitt romney any day. A guy who came from nothing to the highest office in the world. Mitt on the other hand was born with everything he could possibly need in this world. Since most people in the world come from upbringing similar to obama or worst, and when he made he has never forgot where he came from and who he was. So I would have an obama compared to a Romney.

i don't think you've ever been to the EC. according to the 2010 over half of the black population in boston was born in the caribbean. if you include 1st gens, and africans, and illegals, afro-latinos, the non-traditional black population is far larger than the traditional historical aa community.

nyc/metro has by far the largest black population of any metro area in the country. and this is mostly due to immigration. blacks in philly became the majority for the 1st time in the 2010 census, cuz of immigration.

while caribbean immigration has slowed recently, african immigration continues to climb. and the EC is also the preferred destination for afro-latinos.

true most black americans are in the south, but those margins are reduced every year. the growth rate of the black population on the EC is much higher than the south. and it's not all bout size. the educational level is much better, too.

What's wrong with coming from money? Now that you mentio it I know it woud be so beautiful if we had more black families who came from money who were willing to look out for other blacks. You can not be serious.

The ancestry of a person's marriage partner does matter to the persons family. Most people would prefer their son or daughter marry someone of their own ethnic group. You have a lot to learn.
