Africans are not stuck up they just find it hard to communicate to blacks in america who hate that their roots are from africa! when they are in america they think they are african americans. Its the black who were born here who separate them from us!
the problem i find with the blacks here is most are lazy...how do i come from africa and take advantage of the opportunities...but yur black ass has lived in america and aint doing a thing....cmon dogg.... then yo punk ass have the nerve to blame it on racism.......police profiling me...get out of here
i always thought about 'african americans" using this ..a story if you will............say there was a door to a party and that door is guarded by 2 diesel bodybuilding dudes...the african american comes to the venue looking in and thinking.."hey can i get in ?"..they tell him "no"....he then gets agitated...and fights the bodybuilders...they beat him up mercilessly , broken bones and all but somehow he manages to knock out the two bodybuilders...so now he's a few feet away from the door..the gates is wide open but his bones are all broken, he's on the floor crawling..
just at that moment..an african(really any other non white immigrant) comes to the party hearing loud music...the african american is on the floor all bloody and broken crying, complaining about his hard struggle..the door is wide open since the guards are now dead..so the african is looking at the african american wondering why he's complaining so much..after all the door is open..why doesnt he just walk in like the african is doing now...without understanding that the reason the african is able to walk in and out the door and grab a drink and dance is because the afro american suffered the bruises and broken bones...
get what im getting at? it may not be a perfect thing....but afro americans as a group have been victimized for generations..inorder to open up collective black opportunities...families upon families broken up, folks imprisoned...drug ridden....and now these opportunities that they fought for are now open to all ....but the damage that they've suffered all through these years doesnt just end in a generation.....you cant come from a lineage of broken generations, lost opportunities due to legal barriers and then all of a sudden be straight in what 40 years???? thats not even ONE generation
Africans and other immigrant are often lucky because 1.. most african immigrants dont come from the poor class..they come from middle and upper middle class of african society..from a stable family unit...so ofcourse they have more drive than the average african american....But i guarantee if you go to africa they got bums and hoodlums just like in america..it just so happens that the ones that leave are the most driven...they seek opportunity by design so they are going to excel..
its never fair to compare an immigrant to a native in a land..
thats like an african american going to africa..the mere fact that they're going to africa states that they have drive...are they gonna be "lazy" as you put it? no...they will excel...now imagine those african americans now sitting back telling the native africans that they are lazy..after all they made it and the native africans are not doing so well..
