Why do you think black immigrants from the West Indies and Africa earn more than their African American counterparts? Kids of black immigrants are also more likly to go and finish college than kids who have parents of American lineage.

***sigh***Well C-D has gone almost a week without a new "Why Black" thread. Do you have a credible link to a article that everyone can reference?

Would the fact that African immigrants have higher educational attainment rates than the white population? In fact have higher educational attainment rates than Asian immigrants have anything to do with it?

You know when you get to pick first and choose from 1st round draft choices you shouldn't be surprised when they have better skills than the walk ons.


African Immigrants in the United States have the highest rate of education. The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, No. 26 (Winter, 1999-2000), pp. 60-61doi:10.2307/2999156

Can we move on to the next "Why do blacks etc, etc, etc" thread?

I would say that said immigrants don't subscribe to the notion that excelling in school is "acting white".
