Once again, the crack head nubian olmecs masquerading as "warriors of social justice" want to claim everything under the sun except fatherhood and personal responsibility.

"Federal data confirms that 73 percent of African-American births in 2010 were out of wedlock. Estimates for the percentage of African-American children growing up in single-parent households are slightly lower, at 67 percent."

Haiti is just not African enough, so it was denied membership to the African Union: “Haiti Is One of Us; It’s Just Not African Enough”: The African Union Denies Haiti Membership - Urban Intellectuals

IMHO Haiti is the most African like country in the Americas, so if they are not allowed to become full members of the AU, and are relegated to an observer status, that sends a clear message to the rest of us in the diaspora.

I think they mean "African-like" is still not African...That would be like the United States trying to join the EU because it is
"European-like".

Fair comparison although I'm not so sure Haiti would have been denied if it had something to offer and if it was a wealthy, powerful African-like country.

Haiti is as poor as some African countries, they would not be bringing anything to the table.

More case studies in "basketcaseism," a prime example of "terminal can't get it together for any reasons one can think of..."

It has already been suggested that had Brazil been interested they wouldn't have been denied. Africa has enough basket case nations. They don't want another one.

Not true in NYC. No one goes, not even African and Caribbean people. These events are usually poorly promoted, and often not in media which focuses on the various black populations.


The music events, which are better promoted, are well attended by the various black populations. In fact the best attended event of the Celebrate Brooklyn used to be the annual African concert. But now they fragment it, so it has less appeal. In addition the music of the Sahel region is less interesting to most blacks than those from areas like Nigeria, and especially Congo.n The latter being more upbeat. I am seeing more of Mali, and less of Nigeria/Congo. I suspect the organizers pick the music which they like.
