Why do you even care!!! They are successful in America, my goodness. That is all that matters. We are in the United States of America. You making excuses trying to downplay their success is an example of a person who is jealous and envious. That is basically what haters do, you're doing the same thing. Dont hate, appreciate.

I conclude that you are trolling and this will be my last post to you. You are comparing immigrants to the local population i.e., Africans or Nigerians on average do better than the local black population. I did the same. I compared immigrants in Africa or Nigeria that do better than the local African population. If you think the less fortunate locals should show accountability because they can't measure up to the more fortunate then the same applies to the local populations everywhere in comparison to the immigrant population. Africa would be no differently. Their local population must show some accountability for not measuring up to the more fortunate immigrants. I already told you that immigrants on average tend to do better than the local population. You are comparing the more fortunate of immigrants to the less fortunate local population. Apples and Oranges or Apples to Rotten Apples. No African-American is jealous of any immigrant. Maybe you wish it was that way. African-Americans have their own success in the U.S. and abroad.

Not necessarily so, these women (just to name a few) are very beautiful and nowhere near the bottom of the scrap heap...

I'm not comparing anything, you're the one who is doing all the comparing. And I say this again, WHO CARES. Im not trolling just speaking the truth. The op made a post that she thinks Africans look down upon her and made an ignorant statement about African men and women. I just called her out and told her it's the opposite. You are really jealous of them. That's it. You're trying to downplay African success by saying historically immigrants do better than the native locals. Its a cop-out, excuse, defense mechanism or whatever.

I wish AA come to an agreement to start immigrating en masse to other people's country just so we can set up our community and still be Americans, wave our flag, disrespect the native culture as useless and ghetto, talk badly about the less fortunate, side with the enemy, etc.. They wouldn't like that. I'm serious. I'm going to start a movement to get AA to start immigrating and form a nation (community) outside the US. Let's see all the negativity people will have to say then.
LMAO you think like me...funny ish.

Why are you so focused on the bad about Nigerian people rather than the good? That tells me you are consumed with jealousy and hate. I have a degree in psychology and no person who is comfortable with themselves and other people would want to defame another person. Like high school, the popular girl has all the attention, however you know some of the skeletons in her closet and you are just trying to find the right time to reveal them to the world in order to satisfy your ego. African American woman like you are jealous of African success. That is the bottom line.
SMH. youre from california or somewhere in the west arent you?

Maybe its because youre from Jersey...could you elaborate.

LOL Obama didn't even live near or have any meaningful association with Blacks until he was an adult. That's far from the average experience of most Black Americans. Sorry what ever tenous roots he has to Black people he obtained through Africa and his marriage to Michelle.

He is African as his father is Kenyan. Stop attempting to strip Obama of ties to his country of descent. He claims his Kenyan family, and they claim him.

Exactly what actions do you consider "stinky attitude" ? Why do you assume that a whole category of people "hate" you? I mean who the heck are you anyway? I think you have convinced yourself of a stereotype and your running with it.
