Just curious, where are you from in Africa ALBERT B? Are one of those africans born in the UK who think they are English? LOL!
Ghana.
No, I am not.

If you need me to expand on my comment, I am even hesitant when it comes to hiring British people, depending on the position.

Would I hire a chav? No way. Not even to post mail.

Like I said earlier, in my experience, Eastern Europeans are the best workers.

Most black business owners I know don't because of their experience with black people. You give black people a chance and they let you down by being stereotypes.
Black guys are easily distracted.... Especially by the opposite sex. Young British guys are the same way
Black women are too emotional, angry and just bring unnecessary drama.
African men and women are lazy and cannot be trusted. Especially the central and Eastern Africans. The Muslim Africans, don't even bother... They'll justify their laziness with their religion. This is typical for all Muslims anyway.
A common thing with black people is that they're all talk. Best avoided when it comes to your money and your business. They're never willing to put in more hours and they're unreliable.
The best workers in my experience are the Eastern European migrants. They know how to work and they're dedicated.
Is this just a British thing, or is it the same in the USA?
Definitely not the same in the US. Black business tend to help out their own. And I don't mind going to the edge of town to patronize black owned businesses.

Well, I certainly don't want to know any MIXED RACE business owners, you old mixed race pos.
I can see that your idea of a black business is limited to barbers, hairdressers and (African)groceries. Take into account black restaurants.... But your comment just shows how little you know about black businesses in the uk. Then again, you're in the whiter Manchester.
Anyway, I'm talking about black entrepreneurs who take it to the next step and don't just want to cater to black people (there's not much money in doing that) and offer services that appeals to a larger group. We're a rarer breed than the already rare breed of the common black business owner.
Like the black person who graduates from oxford university, we know that we are very very different from the average black person.
Give us a few names of those black businesses that " take it to the next step" ALBERT B? I hope you not talking about selling pirated nigerian movies at a street corner.

Every Nigerian on this planet has a 'business'.....if you know what I mean. And they are all over, everywhere!!
And worse off in the UK, millions of little stands all over the place, no wonder the natives are leaving London.
Hah wrong.

Those little Nigerian shops are generally confined to areas with large groups of Nigerians, so everywhere is an exaggeration.

But at least youre aware of the fact that Africans (especially west Africans)make up the majority of black owned businesses. Even the Somalis own more businesses in the uk than the caribbeans or mixed race people...

And that's just it... Africans are ambitious while caribbeans are not. They're lazy and would rather steal a bike or live on benefits.

Yeah, maybe you need to learn what a sole trader is.

Let's pretend I am Nigerian...
Why would a Nigerian even get Eastern Europeans to sell Nigerian movies on a street corner? That's no way to attract your target audience.
Smh. Way to show how clueless you are, idiot.

Anyway, I'm not going to reveal to you any of these companies. I'm not even going to mention any of the ones in the USA.
If you believe black owned businesses can only be stalls that sell pirate Nigerian DVDs, then that's on you.

British UK black women are more educated than White's in the Country! I have a GF from the UK she's married to a White man who's 12 younger than her and they live well in ATL, GA!

She had 3 degrees and he owns his own business! She helped him and met him while they were doing tech support. She helped him start his own business!

He worships the ground she walks on and openly praises her for ehr love and support!

Your a LOSER and an embarrassment to the race! Not sure how you thought you were making your Mother proud? LMAO

MACEO

Well when it comes to Black men not only don't they abandon their wives/GF's but their children too. Black women don't deserve anything for taking care of black children alone with no support!

1) Halle Berry Father used her Mother, lived off her, ran to adultery, beat her, kicked his White wife's Ass and abused his daughters! Halle Berry left her father to die on the streets of Ohio in a boarding house.(LMAO

2) Janet Jackson's a Hoe? she's only been with 3 men her entire life and married all 3 of them!!!! she uplifted everybody she's been with! She dates a BM, Jermaine Dupri, supported him, let him manage her career, uplifted him min public. Her reward? Jermaine Dupri got 2 Strippers pregnant in ATL in which one of the stipper got janets number from Jermaine's phone and confronted her and said she will rake Jermaine and her though the coals for money!

Janet immediately left and met and married a Billionaire Wissam and got married and he shows her upmost respect for her!

what about Joe Jackson? He fathered children in adulterous relationships in his wife's face! He was extremely abusive which is why Michael and many of the Jackson klan are just a strange family!
none of them were with Black woman except Jermaine's first marriage to Berry Gordy's daughter for publicity while he had an affair with a poor latino woman.

3) Vanessa Williams wasn't a lesbian she did it to get publicity and lost her title as Beauty Queen and went on to do quite well for herself. Her first husband seemed relatively decent he helped her career after all of the charges which ended in an affair with a white woman. Her second husband Rick Foxx was chasing young white blonds and she left him, he's had a botch career since. He's got White woman pregnant and he's still dating her! Why don't black men get married?

What about Beyonce's Father who got two women pregnant? She doesn't talk to her Father who openly brought prostitutes with the money, hit on the girls in the group? She fired him and doesn't speak to her Father who openly disrespected her and his wife!

What about Jamie Foxx who fathered 3 children by White women and hides it from the media? He's no different than his Father who's dying that never took care of him?

What about Venice and Serena who's father said there's ugly women and that no man will want you. What about Puff Daddy who openly disrespected Kim Cole with Jennifer Lopez? He treated Jennifer and Marc Anthony showering them with lavish gifts and refuse to do for the Mother of his 3 children. As well as Puffy Fathered a baby with a woman the same time Kim Cole conceived twins!

What about you MACEO?

Don't you go around hating on Black women for the last 35 years saying WW are better?

You continue to say White women are far superior than Black women? You'll "Kiss Azz, Brown nose and only do for White women while you hate on Black women and didn't do for your Mother!

The "Submissive Black Slave made the same remarks you did while in the field he also had your same behaviors in 2014!
Like many Black men you "Racially Profile" and discriminate against Black women in every area.

Yet, you've not done a damn thing for the race! Not even Mother or family but you sure made sure your Ex White family.

Yet you call herself a Black man? LMAO

BWE Updated Conference Meet.
Attendence 173 folks (MD/DC/PA/VA)

IMSCOM Speech: Stop supporting Black men that don't support Black women and children!

I was shocked some men appeared at the BWE conference yesterday! There angry because the women are pushing Educated Black women to date/marry out and they're wailing that White men will have the successful Black women if they don't date or marry out they still won't give Black men are chance.

Black women are fearful of Black men high risk behaviors which put them at risk!

The message was to "March on, Look Out for YOU, Education, Education, Education and advancing the race but marrying out and marrying well! Stop sleeping with unproductive Black males who do nothing for the race except trash you in the media while dating/marrying low/Average Non Black women over you! Stop supporting these men who only use Black women when their down and out, need money or a place to lay their heads or some benefits.

Stop supporting your biggest hater which is the Black Man!

Men who love offer reciprocity which transfers into Action! Every race of men do for their women hence uplifting the race except Black males who call Black women out of their names and uplift their oppressors low rate women and refuse to do for their own race.

Form Groups, Network and meet and support each other to elevate yourselves and withdraw support from unproductive black males including family members!

Too many Black women still trying to save their 40 and 50 year old sons, who acted irresponsible and these women are in their 70's. They lose their money, homes and Black men take more than they support their Mothers! You have 50 and 60 year old Black men living off their Mothers which is shameful!

Black men don't love or support anything Black so therefore you should stop supporting Black males who destroy the race and uplift other races!

Black women are on a mission! Your new Mission is to Uplift, marry out, Education, Network and support other Black women and push them to do the same!

Time for supporting Black men who Oppress and destroy you!

When Black women go around telling their daughters to date/marry out and stop dealing with Black males they will listen and do it.

Just like they listened to their Mothers who told them they couldn't depend on Black men to take care of marry, support or uplift the race, they said Black men act irresponsible and destroy the race so you have to take care of yourselves because they don't want you unless they can use you!

See the "Cause and effect of your behaviors"

WRONG

Nigerians men and women are the most educated on the uk.
Followed by other west African groups.

As a group, blacks aren't more educated than whites in the uk, because our numbers are dragged down thanks to the uneducated caribbeans and non west African Africans.

I do to care for tales of people worshipping the ground people walk on or praising people. That's for little girls who are needy.

All over the world too.. Even here in Zimbabwe and South Africa, Nigerians try to degrade the country and say bad things about Zimbabwe but their shops are literally at every corner in down town... It is so annoying with their deep accents and their ridiculous national clothing.... Oh and poor quality goods too, not to mention the drugs and human trafficking incidences.

sadly no.

Blacks in this day and time take little pride in working for their own kind. All want to be equal and thus aren't willing to promote another black person's business without taking more than they give.

Black man hires his own kind and he gets lip service. He gets ripped off. He gets no shows. He gets attitude. He gets someone who thinks he not apart of something bigger.

I always wanted to leave a path of bread crumbs behind me that helped my own achieve their own desires but it's clear as day to me that we are too selfish, too envious and too materialistic to support another black person's hard work.
