GDP wise we make more than any other black tribe. we're not like our Brazilian cousins, we fought very hard for what we have, our faces are every where, meanwhile Brazilian, Cuban blacks that are still denied access into facilities.<quoted text>
Specifically African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).
Granted, foreign born blacks (Afro-Latinos, blacks from the Anglophone, French / Creole speaking Caribbean black nations & from Africa) come from nations which are not as economically advanced as what the United States (US) is.
But, when foreign born blacks come to this nation, they can (They do) function & survive on their own.
Foreign born blacks are able to function & survive on their own because they are VERY much different than African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Foreign born blacks have goals, drive, desire, ambition, commitment & dedication.
Foreign born blacks value & cherish work ethic, family values, morals, decency, education, law & order.
All traits & attributes which most African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves) lack.

We have better opportunities because we live in the super power, you can focus on our ratchet but dare not focus on your brightest because our brightest hands down have the group on lock. From NASA head director to CEO of AMEX to Head Astrophysicists (big up Neil Degrassi), IBM head director to Astronauts, Famous Stock Brokers, Entertainers, first heart surgeon to a self made billionaire woman, not that "oh I found metal on the ground" rich.
If you were to gather up statistics on 'first to....' these last 100 years, I'm certain we're in the 98 percentile. While colonialism was at the tail end, we were already marching for our basic 50 yrs prior. we just had a head start.
I'm not saying Africans aren't doing their thing, a lot come here, then go back home and make a great living, but respect who paved the way.
