Because Nigerians are a super race. They do better than White Americans and Asians in America when it comes to educational attainment.

That's besides the point. Nigerians are as black as you can get. Yet, racism does not prevent them from succeeding as a whole. Which does not mean that some individuals will not be victims of racism :

Because "racism" in the United States is mostly a bunch of baloney. Not just Nigerians, but millions of minorities from all over the world are able to come to the United States and succeed economically, often beyond their wildest dreams.

Most people who complain about racism in America have never lived in a foreign country and experienced the racism there. They would be in for a rude awakening if they did that.

This seems to be comparing apples to oranges.


These posts reinforce the differences.

From everything I've read Nigerian-Americans are generally #1 in education/income, and Asian Americans are #2.

To buttress OP's point, it is little-noted that Asians were the MOST discriminated-against group in 19th century America. The existence of blacks was grudgingly tolerated, but there were serious efforts to completely banish Asians. And blacks got citizenship with the 14th Amendment in 1868. Asians were generally denied citizenship until well into the 20th century.

Racism is not a problem anymore. Ghetto culture is the problem and you're an idiot if you don't realize that. Nigerians must be laughing when they see ghetto American blacks.

In my experience black Africans have little regard for African Americans. There's no "brotherhood" by sharing the same skin color.

It's not just Nigerians, it's everyone.

Census Bureau data showed Haitians and Jamaicans were superior to American Blacks.

If you break down the Haitians and Jamaicans by demographic groups, like age, gender and educational level, some Haitian and Jamaican groups actually did better than Whites of the same group.

All African groups do better than American Blacks.

American Black culture is just totally toxic, and that's why they lag behind everyone.

Eventually, Hispanics will become the majority ethnic group and Asians will out-number American Blacks, but both of those groups will hold all the power and wealth, while American Blacks have none, because American Black culture is so toxic.

All those so-called "Black community leaders" haven't done squat, except enrich themselves.

How, exactly, is that "obtuse"? Nigerians have a far more difficult time here in that they are not familiar with American culture and norms. In spite of that, the vast majority do very well-because, while not having experience with American culture-the ones coming here are from a culture that values education, hard work responsibility and family. Culture matters. Personal choices matter. Work ethic matters. Race? Not so much. No different than people born in this nation. Those that chose to work hard, finish high school, learn some sort of skill, generally do well. THose that can't even manage to finish high school, get involved in crime or drugs and refuse to work-generally don't. Your melatonin level doesn't determine success, the culture you embrace and the choices you make do. In case you haven't noticed, most American black people actually are doing quite well.
