It's either the ''Jews'' the ''white man'' the ''illuminati'' or ''aliens'' depending on who you ask. The reality is it's manipulative individuals with power and wealth. A good percentage of which are psychopaths in nature and they do not care about anyone but themselves let alone racial groups, nationalities, religion etc. They may pretend to represent a said tribe, but they couldn't care less as long as it acquires them more power and wealth.
All this tribalism solves nothing but simply diverts the attention away from reality. All you guys are doing here is being emotional and not trying to understand the picture.
This is why humanity as a majority remains exploited by a few in largely what we call capitalism, you'd rather indulge in tribalism whether it be race, religion, nationality, political affiliation etc than understand human nature applied to economics.
If Jews are your problem, what is expressing your superiority above blacks solving here? See what I mean?
You mentioned and agreed with you about biggest world pyschopaths on this earth , as you listed them in order, you hit all right keys! Babababaaaa

Haitian beauty, Sarodj Bertin, crowned "Queen Hispano-Americana(QueenLatin America)

http://glamlifeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/20...

This annual beauty pageant, which began in 1991 as Reina Sudamericana (South American Queen), is based in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. Up to 2003 the participants were restricted to the 10 countries in South America; in 2004 participants from Panama and Costa Rica in Central America were invited; and in 2006 participants from Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico & Spain joined. In 2007 Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras were added, and the name changed to Reina Hispanoamericana. The pageant is organized by Promociones Gloria, based in Bolivia. More than 15 contestants participate every year.

Venezuela has the most number of crowns in this pageant, a total of six crowns followed by Brazil with five crowns. Last year, the very own representative of Curacao, Evalina van Putten honored the fresh new Caribbean country with the first international crown of the South American soil.

True. But, this is changing.

Blacks who have ancestral roots from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations, & from Africa have very much been encouraged to seek separate classification. DIFFERENT from African American.

Blacks who have ancestral roots from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations, & from Africa have not received the separate classification yet. But, in due time, they will.

Once this happens, this will even FURTHER fracture & fragment the African American "community" even more.

Somewhat true. Primarily incorrect.

In regards to "somewhat true".---------

Non-Hispanic Whites who have radical Right wing views like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), Aryan Nations & skinheads do think that way.

Most non-Hispanic Whites do NOT think that way.

Most non-Hispanic Whites prefer foreign born blacks (Afro-Latinos, blacks from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations, & from Africa). OVER African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

True. This cannot be changed. This is REALITY

A person cannot just live within the environment of their four walls, ceiling & floor. A person HAS to venture outside of their room.

A person HAS to deal with others from many different backgrounds.

So, what others think DOES matter.

black man1.---------

You said "Do you know that the Spanish were the first who had slaves".---------

It is close between the Spanish & the Dutch.

You asked "Also, tell me why are black Americans richer than all those foreign born blacks that you have named?".---------

The descendants of black American slaves are richer than foreign born blacks is because of this.--------- The descendants of black American slaves have ancestral roots in this land which goes back over 400 years.

Mid 1966.---------

This was when some sizeable numbers of foreign born blacks came to the United States.

Primarily after 1985.

Trouble, you directed your above post to Darline. She did not respond back. I will address it.

Your 6 points above.--------- You are right on the mark. But, there is much more involved.

What you stated above is specifically for African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves). Because at the CORE of the United States group dynamics, racial dynamics, & racial politics is the African American (Descendants of black American slaves) & White-American divide.

Foreign born blacks (Afro-Latinos, blacks from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations, & from Africa) have escape hatches in regards to race.

Afro-Latinos, when it is time for them to classify according to race with the federal government, how do they classify? As Hispanic.

White-Hispanics, Mestizo-Hispanics & Afro-Latinos collectively are being given "Honorary White Status" in the United States.

Blacks who have ancestral roots from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations, & from Africa are being given "Pseudo Honorary White Status" in this nation.

<quoted text>These establishments are not racially motivated, they're motivated by acquiring capital. Why do you think non-white immigration into these countries have been relaxed? In order to gain cheap labour thus cheaper products to compete with the developing world and to create a higher demand for jobs thus the ability to keep wages low. They'll strive for this even if it means drastically changing the racial demographics of the country
__________

Your 8 points above.--------- You are right on the mark.

But, race MATTERS. Race has always mattered. It always will.

Examples.---------

1965. United States.---------

When the Immigration and Nationality Act was crafted by Democrat & Republican Representatives & Senators. Passed. Signed into law by then president Democrat Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ).

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 VERY much had racial overtones to it.

The Immigration and Nationality Act was crafted & passed in 1965. 1965 was a year which was at the height of the 1960s African American Civil Rights Movement.

The Immigration and Nationality Act was passed to bring foreign born immigrants of color into this nation. So that foreign born immigrants of color could fill jobs IN PLACE OF African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

That this would create tension, conflict & strife in the African American (Descendants of black American slaves) neighborhoods. That this would create tension, conflict & strife in African American families.

That this would take A LOT of momentum out of the 1960s African American Civil Rights Movement. Which it did.

That, over time, that foreign born immigrants of color ((primarily Hispanics (Afro-Latinos included) would totally usurp, undercut, phase out, & displace African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) in the United States.

Making most African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) a PERMANENT underclass in this nation. This is just for starts.

Race MATTERS. Race has always mattered. Race will always matter.

really and truly they should have their own classifications: we are true Americans. They will be given the same stimatized status we have in this country. Watch and see.

However that doesn't stop people from being racially stigmatized WITHIN the USA; and people from other countries seem to know that as well, though still regarding Americans as Americans.
By the way, I'm found once (and trying to find it again) a study which indicated that while IR relations and marriages between American Blacks and whites have increased, the INTRARACIAL marriages and relations between American born Blacks and Blacks from other countries have actually increased even more. Very interesting if true. I wonder why it's not talked about as much.

Probably because it is a savant fabrication, or they are all klutzes like you, with an attention span of an omelet, and forget where they put the article...ask one of your socks...

sad to say but AAs are an assimilated people. We have become what have been accustomed to being around. Beyond sad. The only way i see that we can over come this is to embrace and study our American history then we will be able to embrace our heritage and autonomy as a specific group of people with our own struggle, accomplishments, heritage, culture, history, etc... I dont want to become these other people through marriage, assimilation and etc. our contribution to this world is way to great to allow ourselves to disappear..
