What are you quoting? I don't doubt that there are many factors involved, but the report I linked to is entirely about the issue I described.

Maybe they are all Princes. I had a college professor from Nigeria and guess what -- he actually was a Prince.

Perhaps Nigeria doesn't have a history of rap music and killing each other over drugs.

Do you realize that many Black Americans are descendants of Nigerian ethnic groups?

Ask yourself what is the difference between those Nigerian descendants and the recent Nigerians? What happened? How come they don’t have the same culture?

It’s not that difficult.

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.
Get out of here with that nonsense. As the first generation born here, it is the American historical experience that was toxic to American blacks . American blacks didn’t ask for not create that. That was imposed. And if it wasn’t for their culture and their striving for opportunities, the rest of us recent people of color wouldn’t be here.

Not true-

Look at the refugees from Vietnam. Some were urban dwellers, but many came from stone age villages.

Bullcrap- every failure needs any excuse. Successful people have no use for excuses.

As long as black America seeks to blame and rationalize failure, they are doomed. Those that realize they are individual human beings, not a part of the collective "black Americans", they can throw off their chains and get on with life.

Every individual is capable of living a productive, fruitful life unless you convince yourself otherwise. In America, blacks have so many advantages that others do not have, such as racial scholarships, quotas, affirmative action, preferential government contracts, ect...... The playing field has been more than leveled with all these advantages that poor whites do not have.

Time to stop making excuses and look forward, not backward. The past is gone.

Refugees are different from the typical immigrant.

I doubt there actually are any stone age villages in Vietnam. Civilization is very old in the part of the world. They've been farming rice there for 4000 years and using iron tools for more than 2000.
