Curious why that particular group is pushing for this. Not saying its a bad thing but i could see this being used to get rid of affirmative action and other programs on the grounds that "see, look black immigrants can do it why can't they"
Asians and Africans look at education as the end all be all. My dad damn near killed me for going to summer school because I was rebellious. shyt ain't no joke. You better achieve or you are a fukking failure and you don't want to be a fukking failure.

??? Because Nigeria is in deep decay? :mjlol:

What the hell do you mean? Most people who “well to do” In their countries still migrate because of the power of USD

nikkas be doctors in Sudan, and come here and drive taxis. Don’t play dumb
Most people who are well do only come to America in the summer as a vacation. Ain't no rich or wealthy Nigerian man or woman is moving to America full time. Too many rules, white supremacy, and they get to live like kings. Security is an issue but they are used of that. They would choose so many others places before America. London caters to them more than America does.

This is because they’re more likely to be middle class and elites, relative to most people in their country who couldn’t dream to emigrate. It costs an incredible amount of money to move from Nigeria to the US and become a citizen. Way more than let’s say a Mexican or something.

That whole “poor African came here with nothing” is a myth used on prestigious college applications. Most of these Nigerians come from families of upper class professions like doctors, professors, political families etc.

It’s an open secret, just like checking a box on an application to call yourself African American while speaking down on us like dogs at the dinner table.
Man, you dusty nikkas make anything up to make your dumbasses feel better.

This is a lie but keep telling it. 72% of Nigerian immigrants are college graduates before they come to
America
Don't know if that's true, but I'm not sure why you think only elites can go to college inside Nigeria. That is not the case and it has never been the case. Before he came to the US, my dad paid his way through the University of Lagos by working as a security guard in a bank.

Nigerians who immigrate to the US, UK and Canada are usually lower middle class to upper middle class. Elite Nigerians might come here for school, but they usually don't live in the west long term because they don't have any reason to. Life in Nigeria is good for them, and probably better than it'd be in the US.

Well to do doesn’t mean rich or wealthy. Well to do means well to do. Weirdos

Sha, let them think what they want. Until they can provide data, it’s just palaver.

Man, you dusty nikkas make anything up to make your dumbasses feel better.

Findings from this study affirm the influence of social class—or structural circumstances produced by hyper-selective immigration—on the educational outcomes of Nigerian immigrant-origin students. Raised by college-educated parents, some of whom also received post-graduate training, students internalized college education as essential. Beyond serving as role models, parents also intentionally wielded their human and financial capital to provide their children with the quality of education and experiences needed to be competitive for admission to highly-ranked colleges and universities. Outside of their immediate families, students were exposed to youth and adults in their local Nigerian immigrant communities who also helped to set the academic standard to which they were held. Ultimately, students’ predispositions toward college attendance and elite colleges and universities influenced their exploration, application, and matriculation decisions.


The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) recently released the “2019 Poverty and Inequality in Nigeria” report, which highlights that 40 percent of the total population, or almost 83 million people, live below the country’s poverty line of 137,430 naira ($381.75) per year.

Black is Black with regards to anti-Black discrimination in the USA.....but even back when Marcus Garvey was pushing Black Nationalism and Carter G Woodson published his best known book, Jamaicans and other Black immigrants were more driven to open up businesses and were more likely to own them.

And maybe the explanation is slavery where Black Americans were only able to just survive for centuries and then forced segregation which deprived them of the ability to thrive the way they could have in an all Black country.

Also when you come from a country where you're in charge your mindset is completely different. Because it doesn't even occur to you that you can't be in charge. So when you move to a new country it's just expected that you'll dominate. For native Blacks though that's never happened so their outlook is completely different.
I have to disagree. Blackness is a construct that was created to justify the racial caste system that slavery established. Before slavery, while there was obvious recognition of differences, race wasn’t as paramount a trait in the classification of groups. People of African descent lived freely in Europe and the American colonies. It was only when the aristocracy sought a method of dividing the people and marginalizing what would become the enslaved that “black” and “white” as systemic identities took hold.

I don’t consider non-ADOS as “black” in the traditional sense - nor does the system.

The California Reparations Committee is responsible for this push to examine these issues in terms of lineage.

Alot of former ADOS Chapter members have been working with the Committee and encouraging them to keep the focus on lineage.

Big up to Chris Lodgson, Friday Jones, Chad and all the rest of the Reparations activists and the real ones on the Committee.

@KingADOS Why is it that nikkas like you can't read. You said most come with college degrees, that's clearly NOT true even by you post. This is why mods always ban you, because you stupid as shyt. No where is it true that these people come to America with a degree. They usually get it in America.

Nigeria is a shythole, that's been confirmed
