I donít understand if whites are such racists and oppressors why are Nigerians succeeding and surpassing other ethic groups including whites in America .

My theory is that people who immigrate legally are already pre-screened if you will for qualities that predict success: better educations, willingness to follow guidelines and regulations, and the patience and sacrifice required to do things "the right way."

Legal immigrants are generally more successful than the native-born for these reasons.

... because education visas have long been one of the main ways people are able to immigrate from African countries to America. The fact that a relatively high percentage of Nigerians in America have advanced degrees is merely an artifact of U.S. immigration policy, and says little or nothing about American society as a whole, or the intelligence of the average Nigerian.

Nigerians are very goal-oriented hard-working people with STRONG family values. Many of them are devout Christians. Here in Texas it’s very common to see Nigerian couples where the husband works in petroleum engineering and the wife in nursing; two common fields of education for Nigerians. Nigerian nurses by the way are the bomb. They are GREAT in nursing.

Shhh you are not supposed to point this kind of stuff out OP because it goes against the Leftist narrative..



Here is another, if America is so racist and violent with guns and crime then why do we have approx. 100,000 brown people flocking to our border each month?



Could it be that America isn't as bad as the Left makes it out to be?

It is not about left or right, you need to read the first few replies to the OP. But my sense is your ideological blinders will prevent you from seeing reality.

Well, crime is much higher in most Latin American countries than in the US and it is much much higher in El Salvador, Honduras, etc.

As my third grade teacher used to say, "Let's put our thinking caps on today."

You are asking for a lot.

I am not a leftist but other than a few far left wing nuts your characterization of the left seems very ideologically driven.

Don't play the Democrat game op, they just use that tactic to keep people in line.

"They'll put you back in chains" Biden claimed, and do people really believe that? It's all a game to keep people believing that Dems will save them.
