    So again, it is extremely silly and unrealistic to tell a group with such little capital to be like immigrant groups like East Asians, Indians, Arabs, Irish or Italians who had capital back home

    Black Americans have substantially more wealth on average than Black Africans. So if we wanted to make Black Americans have as much capital as the average folks 'back home' we would have to take wealth away from them.

    He's saying that other groups such as Asians have the benefit of having capital from 'back home' whereas blacks were made poor by slavery. But the fact is that the descendants of slaves in America are wealthier on average than the Africans 'back home'.

    Side by side the gap is noticeable, circa 2012 but the numbers are probably still much the same proportionately-speaking.


    Agreed.

    Like said you arguing just to argue. Read the OP again. I said Africans and some other immigrants like Asians with WEALTH come here which skews the percentage of successful Africans and Asians since they are a small number in the USA compared to AAs. Hispanics like Mexican meanwhile usually do NOT come from a wealthy background. Again do you live in the USA?

    Not at all. Greenwood went into economic decline long before the 'urban renewal' of the 70s, which happened because by that time it was a 'depressed neighbourhood'. It's not complicated or circular.

    Yeah but you were explicitly claiming that american blacks lack capital because of slavery.
