This is inaccurate.Africans have the highest educational attainment.

Did i mention that the Atlanta blacks I've run into are very friendly.

They are not like the Snoop Dogg Dr. Dre gangster blacks with big guns when I think of the blacks that live in LA or NYC.

I hope I don't get called out or shot at for making this observation since I moved here.


I know you meant well ,but....um no.LOL
Its like if I had said something like "oh those Koreans are communist that murder their own people and have nukes."Obviously there is a difference between countries but still the same people.People are the same everywhere.You have different classes even between the same race.

No, it isn't. I'm not referring to immigrants. I am referring to racial groups in the United States. African immigrants are black, so technically they are subsumed into that category. But if you are comparing only immigrant groups, then yes, Africans would have the edge over Asians.

You may be right but why would they group Africans born in America with black Americans but not do the same for Asians born in America?The cultures are totally different.

In Canada its no difference:

In Canada, similar trends can be seen where both foreign-born and Canadian-born blacks have graduation rates that exceed those of other Canadians. Black immigrants have a higher standard of educational achievement, on average, than the overall Canadian population.

Loved this article that depicts how Duluth (Gwinnett Medical Center) is adapting and embracing Korean culture:

Gwinnett | GMC-Duluth making things more comfortable for Korean patients

Offering translators, Korean television, and Korean food. If ever I have to be in the hospital, I'm going with the Korean food---I'm sure it's 100 times better than the standard American!

Not only would it probably be better, but Kimchi has some magically curing powers. One of my neighbors gave me some homemade stuff last year when I had the flu and I felt better within a day. True story.

You're right! Kimchi is considered to be a very healthy food. Good for you for being open to trying it---most everyone I know would never even consider trying it.

Aries4118... what are you doing???

You can't be going around on city data and promoting Johns Creek, Suwanee, and Duluth to all the Asians living in other cities. I still yet to buy several more real estate investment properties in JC and Suwanee before all these Asians from midwest, east coast, and california swarm in here like bees bidding up our real estate prices.

Shhhh! .. let those other asians promote Dallas and Houston, but we must keep Atlanta a secret.
