What do you mean?

I know a lot of African immigrant groups have high college rates. I was saying I'm assuming they are included in the Black figure. Or no?

Puerto Ricans are not a color or a race, is ethnic like saying american, american have all sort of people.
Puerto Rican are blacks, whites, mixed, native indians.
Some Puerto Ricans are white, blonde, blue eyes.
Others are black.

By groups they only have Hiatian and Trinidad, no other blacks are on the list.

But reading in the intro it states that only groups larger that 65K, are represented. So Cuban and Ukranian are not represented, that means that African immigrants are less then 65K. So the number is so low that is statistically insignificant

Many believe that the poverty was compounded by the Puerto Rican experience with welfare. Arriving as American citizens, Puerto Ricans were entitled to the social services denied to many new immigrants. Among single mothers with young children, who often found welfare more attractive than a low-paying job with no benefits, public assistance kept many from job experience or started a cycle of poverty, sociologists say.
Main reason i think welfare create lazy people(not everybody in welfare are lazy,).

So by 1992, Gangsta Rap had already taken over the Hip Hop culture. The New York/East Coast Hip hop community had to accept these changes. Gagsta rap was way more popular and so they had to adapt to it. Now I always though that the N word, is more associated with the Los Angeles/West coast Hip Hop (Gangsta rap) scene than early New York/East Coast Hip Hop.
Tell me: All of those Gangsta Rap in the East Coast, looke like thugs with NY baseball caps. What type of role models are those for our young population? And have you heard how they demean women? Is that supposed to be music? We already have enough hoods!
