Why the All-Ivy League Story Stirs Up Tensions Between African Immigrants and Black Americans

Arit John, Yahoo! News, April 1, 2014

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants–especially when you describe him as “not a typical African-American kid.” That’s been the reaction to USA Today‘s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation’s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male). At one point the piece reads:

Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. “He’s not a typical African-American kid.”

“Not a typical African-American kid” is being read as an allusion to the lazy black American stereotype. The tension comes from the fact that some African immigrants buy into that stereotype, which gets turned into “Africans don’t like black people.” {snip}

In January, Luvvie Ajayi, a Nigerian-born immigrant, tried to explain “akata,” a word some Nigerians use to refer to black Americans that translates into wild animal. (Note: A lot of Nigerians use akata to mean “ghetto” as well. My mom once told me I was dressed like an akata girl because I wanted to wear sweatpants in public.) She argued in a series of tweets, collected by Clutch, that the reason some Africans believe black Americans should be doing better is because they don’t know about the history of black Americans but see their own success as a reason blacks should excel as well. {snip}

American society holds that same view as well. A 2007 study covered by the Washington Post found that a quarter of black students admitted to elite colleges were African immigrants, though they only represented 13 percent of America’s college-age black population. The study’s authors several theories on why black immigrants do better, including “to white observers black immigrants seem more polite, less hostile, more solicitous and ‘easier to get along with.’ Native blacks are perceived in precisely the opposite fashion.”

    It’s my opinion that even if this guy from Ghana was/is the real deal (which I don’t believe he is for an instant), that doesn’t mean he has all the necessary tools in place to be successful beyond the academic sphere of influence.

    • dmxinc

      Ghana is different than most African nations.

      I know several people from Ghana and they are above average. Something different about that country when compared to the rest of Africa. I don’t know why.

      • Did Ghana get rid of all its criminal idiots by selling them to the Portuguese traders 400 years ago?

        • Bossman

          The Americas got the worst type of Blacks. If any female slave was considered pretty she would not be shipped across the Atlantic.

          • Zimriel

            I’d expect the female slaves who were sold and shipped were “damaged goods”. Pretty and young enough for the Portuguese who bought them, at surface level. “Issues” underneath – perhaps medical in nature, perhaps just avoiding an “honour” killing at home.

        • joesolargenius

          That’s a good point but not totally accurate ,400 years ago the black rulers were still raiding smaller villages and enslaving the women for local use but were shipping the warriors out of the country.
          However in the 1800s King Gezo a Dahomenian in West Africa as it is called now was using the slave trade to cull the undesirables from African Society. Frank Yerby a 1950’s black author included much of that history in his fiction novels based upon plantation life.

      • pcmustgo

        I prefer Africans to american blacks and know Ghana is one of the safest african countries, but I had a horrible experience with a Ghanian african “friend” who flipped out on me racially one day in class, insuating whites were holding blacks like him captive as slaves. Africans and Caribbean Blacks quickly pick up the afrocentric/resent white people /identity politics stuff. And why wouldn’t they? Our whole country revolves around it.

        • pcmustgo

          he did it in a really creepy way too. Came from “out of nowhere”. Talk about unpredictable behavior in Blacks.

          • Tom Mixx

            they’re all the same…

        • The Final Solution

          All of Africa will be treated equally in the second conquest. All equal workhorses under the whip.

        • Einsatzgrenadier

          No, you prefer the upper echelons of the African population to the typical American black. The typical African is just as bad as, if not worse than, the typical American black. American blacks are actually more evolved than Africans because of their European admixture.

          • Fathercoughlin

            Or maybe theyre worse. Ever hear of a couple of dirtbags named Barry Obama & Eric Holder?

        • gemjunior

          “Our whole country revolves around it.”
          It’s the foundational basis of all their lives. “It’s a Black Thing, you wouldn’t understand”…. the mass psychology of an entire race is total self obsession and self absorption and it’s sick. I’ve always thought, even when I was a teen, that they claim everyone hates them but they are at the head of the line – they hate themselves. Then their actions and behaviors are what makes others hate them, though to avoid any responsibility they like to claim it’s about “the color of mah skin”. Hardly.

      • Maybe it’s the Ibo (Igbo) tribe? They’re mostly in Nigeria, and wanted to secede and tried in 1967-1970, the Biafaran War. Maybe a few happen to live in what is now Ghana. They’re probably the only tribe of black Africans worth their salt. If you know of any black African teachers of high level math in Western schools, they are probably Ibo/Igbo.

        • Tarczan

          Yeah! That’s them, the ones with the space program and nuclear power plants.

      • leftists are delusional

        Average IQ is 71 in Ghana.
        – IQ and the Wealth of Nations

        Saying the several people you know from Ghana indicate the average intelligence of the country is equivalent to saying the members of the Chinese national basketball team reflect the average height of Chinese people.

      • jane johnson

        Same experience here. I’ve had them as classmates, and they’re always well-dressed, well-spoken, respectful, and actually seem to be grateful for the opportunity that being in the US affords them.

    • a multiracial individual

      His SAT score is in the 98th percentile OVERALL. He is the real deal.

      • Tom Mixx

        It’s all just a bunch of malarkey until he does something. My money says this is the top of his game – going to school.

      • Tarczan

        No big deal, 2 out of hundred. There are millions like him. Bright, but nothing special.

        • a multiracial individual

          I never said he was unbelievably brilliant (that remains to be seen). However, the top 1-2% of students are capable of handling demanding academic material. Thus he is the “real deal”

          • indoctrination_FAIL

            Doesn’t mean he’s needed here in my country. I would cordially invite him to go do some good where he’s actually needed, like his ancestral homeland.

            America already has its “top 1-2% of students”, to use your words. And we don’t need any more aesthetic pollution.

      • Fathercoughlin

        NO! Its not true. Our media thirst for stories of this type like the commies wanted to describe heroic peasant girls plowing the fields. Aint true. This is fake.

  • Perhaps some native Africans are more successful here because they have not yet been completely convinced by liberal guilt-mongers that YT owes them a living.

    • Puggg

      Or maybe the kind of black African that comes here is different than the type of black African that stays behind in black Africa. A self selection, I think they call it.

      • The Final Solution

        I read that his parents are doctors, so he no doubt comes from the top-tier of African society.

        • Jonathan Vere

          I’ve read they are nurses. All the same, he’s got an excellent SAT score, which we generally regard as an objective measure of intellectual ability.

      • Rhialto

        True, and from a humanitarian viewpoint, intelligent Blacks (3 digit IQ) are the people that Africa needs. How can Africa even participate in 3rd millennium technology, if the most intelligent Blacks emigrate, and leave the normals behind? It’s like giving a retard a prefrontal lobotomy.

    • sbuffalonative

      He’s one out of a billion.

      If his bio is correct, he certainly falls to the extreme right of the bell curve.

      • Jonathan Vere

        I am curious whether the Educational Testing Service has actual figures on black SAT scores. Clearly there aren’t many who score in that range.

      • leftists are delusional

        Just like Yao Ming proves the average Chinese man is 7’6″ tall.

  • sbuffalonative

    The tension comes from the fact that some African immigrants buy into that stereotype, which gets turned into “Africans don’t like black people.”

    The white man’s ‘racist’ stereotype of American blacks has now infected African immigrants.

    • LovelyNordicHeidi

      What’s next? Blacks accusing Whites of racism Whites because of the racism of Nigerians towards American Blacks. Black racism is of course the result of White racism!

      • Pelagian

        I think we just discovered “double secret” racism. Well done!

    • leftists are delusional

      White racism knows no bounds, it can even make Africans racist.

    • Fathercoughlin

      Do you have a job? No? Ha! Gotcha! We “stereotyped” ya to be lazy! We also stereotyped ya to have an ultra high sex drive and to love fried chicken and to watch Maury all day while collecting welfare. You could show some gratitude!

  • Immigrants tend to represent the more capable portion of their populations. American blacks are the descendants of slaves, which means they came from the very bottom of their populations. It’s no wonder the immigrants are more successful.

    • pcmustgo

      Those African immigrants are the top 1% of Africa. Most are the children of African dictators, educated in european and american boarding schools and such.

      • Bossman

        The same goes for Asian immigrants.

    • leftists are delusional

      Exactly.

    • Northerner

      That isn’t entirely accurate. It’s obviously true that American blacks are the descendants of slaves, however, slave owners bought blacks at auction who appeared the biggest and/or strongest so they could work on the fields. It was a form of selection for higher quality blacks, at least physically.

      • jane johnson

        That’s why we have the NBA today, but it’s racist to mention it. Just ask Jimmy the Greek..

      • Yeah, I’m no expert on the slave trade, but my guess is that, generally speaking, slaves aren’t that bright.

  • Is there any group that likes American blacks other than white libtards? Nope, and even the white libtards are faking it to work out their “white guilt.” Messcans don’t like em. Asians don’t like em. Whites don’t like em *wiggers excluded* Jews don’t like em, not really. What’s to like about American blacks? Nuthin’.

    • Tarczan

      I had a darkie tenant tell me that when she left East Cleveland she was moving somewhere where there were no black people. Any honest black will admit they hate living with blacks. That is why the cities are in a perpetual state of chaos.Everyone dislikes blacks, including blacks.

      • Alexandra1973

        My husband’s heard black women say they’re going to start going with White men because their own men are about worthless.

        • baldowl

          If those black women think they’ll be able to find white men to go with them, they’re in for a rude awakening.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Very few white men would whelp kids with a black woman, let alone date them. Appearance aside, their craziness, attitude and tendency for violence would make living around one about as much fun as walking on egg shells 24/7/365.

          • evilsandmich

            I’ve seen that on the odd occasion. On some level I get the (usually ugly) white woman with the smooth talking, ‘a-male’, black dude, as disgusting as it seems (my white women acquaintances would seem to prefer lesbianism, but anyway…). However, the white dude with the black chick? Completely mystifying.

      • evilsandmich

        Yeah we had a black janitor that moved from East Cleveland to Garfield Heights, but then was complaining because the neighborhood in Garfield Heights was going down hill. No duh, I wonder what could have possibly caused that….

  • The Final Solution

    If he was white and had a perfect SAT score he wouldn’t have gotten in to all those schools. Maybe one or two. The diversity factor is what worked for this Zulu – he is like solid gold to those schools since smart and talented blacks are more rare than water on the moon.

  • Africans view blacks in Americans as a second class citizens. Even in Liberia the “American blacks” have been made an outcast group. American blacks only see success in gangs, black sports (basketball and football), and rap.

  • Luca

    “…a Nigerian-born immigrant, tried to explain “akata,” a word some Nigerians use to refer to black Americans that translates into wild animal.”

    I can translate “Akata” accurately for you. In Nigerian it means N-word.

    • Ed

      It’s odd akata is a Nigerian word. The word was used extensively in my Ghanaian household. I took it to mean crazy. That was the context it was used in at least.

    • Tarczan

      If you scroll down there is a picture of the retired navy Seal who was shot in a suburb of Akron. Sounds to me like he is a victim of spontaneous blackness.

  • OhWow

    If you go to black websites they are trumpeting this kid as the next Jesus. What they don’t know is that he was ranked 11th in his class. He wasn’t even close to being valedictorian in his high school and William Floyd is a weak district known for being trashy. I think he still would have gotten into 1 or 2 Ivy schools on merit, but there is zero doubt that the reason he got in all 8 is because he’s black. Seeing a smart black kid is like the holy grail in this liberal era. It’s their ticket to push diversity and say “See?! This proves blacks are just as smart!”.

    I grew up with white kids in high school who had 4.0’s and perfect scores on the SAT graduated valedictorian went to Harvard and it was impressive but we didn’t throw a parade. We knew our students were capable. Tons of white kids did what this black kid did. The fact that a black kid gets all this press for being smart says a LOT if you read between the lines.

    • Alexandra1973

      Yep. Smart Whites, a dime a dozen. Smart black–one in a billion.

    • Martel

      To your last sentence: everybody with any life experience is a race realist, the vast majority denies what they deep down know is true.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    He said immigrants tend to represent the top tier levels of their respective population groups, not that they always do. Latin American mestizos are generally worthless because of the short distance needed to reach the US border. This means that they are significantly less self-selected than other groups, especially for labor market success. Other immigrants, such as those from Africa, have to traverse much larger distances to reach the US, and therefore must be more ambitious and fairly well off in terms of material resources. These are more self-selected, which is why they have higher IQs and earn more than native-born blacks and Hispanics.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    I am reminded of the eighteenth century English philosopher Hume, who said: “In JAMAICA, indeed, they talk of one negroe as a man of parts and learning; but it is likely he is admired for slender accomplishments, like a parrot, who speaks a few words plainly.”

    Who cares about this magical negro and his “slender accomplishments”? The implication of this unwarranted admiration is that whites would love blacks if they excelled academically or really did build the pyramids in ancient Egypt. However, this way of looking at things is fundamentally misguided.

    Even if every black was a potential brain surgeon or nuclear physicist with a genius IQ, no self-respecting white man would want to go anywhere near blacks or have them in any western country. This is because the bottom-line must always be RACE. It’s about pursuing our own fundamental genetic interests as WHITE PEOPLE. This means promoting a kinship-based racialism that ensures white racial survival by discouraging a-racial behavior that leads to maladaptive outcomes, such as massive 3rd world immigration and multiculturalism.

    If whites aren’t willing to put their own racial interests before everything else, we’ve already lost the struggle for survival.

  • Ed

    I guess I have a more intimate experience with the culture clash. My parents are Ghanaian immigrants and they enrolled me at a Catholic school through 6th grade. I did very well there, was well liked among my mostly White peers. Never heard the N-word or heard any cross words directed towards me because of my race. My parents split up before 7th grade and I end up having to transfer to the local public school. Didn’t bother me much I had begun to hang around neighborhood kids who went to public school and got along well with them.

    Well I was in for a rude awakening. The Black American kids at my new school said I spoke “White” and was too dark skinned. This was the first time I realized being Black was a bad thing to some people. The N-word flowed freely and fights were a regular occurrence. The most disturbing thing to me was the utter disrespect shown towards teachers. Little learning took place. If it wasn’t for the fact that my formative years were spent at a real school, Lord knows where I’d be today.

    There is something seriously wrong with Black American culture and the powers that be need to address it. As for me I’ve realized that the key to my family’s long term success in this country is to minimize contact with African-Americans. This saddens me as I know some great ones. Something is seriously wrong with many of them though, your ancestors have created monsters.

    • Jerrybear

      ‘Your ancestors’ as in white people? American blacks are constantly told their plight in life is due to evil white people. This has developed into a chip on the shoulder of most American blacks. In reality, everyone is responsible for themselves. I’d like to think that its just cultural but most African nations resemble the same conditions that are created in majority black cities. Poverty, violence, and chaos.

    • gemjunior

      They were fine up until forced integration. They had their own stores, tailors, hardwares, lawyers, doctors, etc. and community. They deserted them because they wanted to force themselves into the company of whites and buy their products rather than those from the black community to who they weren’t loyal IMO. If whites we really oppressive, blacks would not always want to be in white schools, towns, companies, etc. And yes, their vengeance is to destroy. I certainly do understand how you embrace your good situation of being in a proper school long enough to understand real learning which of course changed your life. Lucky to have such parents. But it can not be blamed on “legacy of slavery” “white oppression” etc. Whites have bent over backward to give a leg u p to African Americans in the form of all the affirmative action programs, school programs, head start, etc. It’s undeniable. If that cost were converted to cash money, I’m sure it would be a large number, seriously.

      • benvad

        No doubt.

        I never had a black teacher in elementary school.
        I had three in junior high school. One was kind of “dull” but she knew it was in her best interest to spend her money in the state in which she worked. Another was my math teacher, she was ahead of the curve.
        Her sister was my English teacher there. Both had essentially had the black bred out of them. I actually liked that English teacher, even though she sent me to the principal’s office one day for a still unknown reason.
        I thought about stopping in one day to see her.
        Couple days later she committed suicide.

        • Pelagian

          Rare for blacks to off themselves. She must have really had “the black bred out of her.”

    • . . . and the powers that be need to address it . . .

      Hilarious! What evidence do you have that that might actually occur?

    • Frank_DeScushin

      Ed, I’ve known several Ghanaian immigrants over the years, and all of them were the antithesis of American blacks. All of the Ghanaian immigrant I’ve known were well dressed, well spoken, and well educated. They demanded the same of their children. From my own personal experience, there is much truth in both what you say and what the article suggests.

      That’s why I take umbrage when the article notes that, “to white observers black immigrants seem more polite, less hostile, more solicitous and easier to get along with. Native blacks are perceived in precisely the opposite fashion.” No, it’s not that African or Caribbean immigrants SEEM more polite, less hostile, more solicitous, and easier to get along with. It’s that they ARE generally more polite, less hostile, and so on. Native blacks are perceived in the opposigviewng fashion because they, more than any other demographic, have members that act in that fashion.

      • Ed

        A couple of things we had civilization in Ghana, well atleast the Ashanti did. Of course it wasn’t fully developed but the reason why so many Ghanaians appear to be polite, upright etc is because our culture demands that of us. It predates European contact. Black Americans don’t have a culture. There’s is one of slavery & deprecation. Whereas I grew up on tales of the Ashanti fighting off the Brits, Black Americans grow up on takes of slavery, oppression and the general feeling they are less than.

        There’s some truth to what you say. American Blacks, heck most Blacks, seem to operate best in highly restrictive environments. I do think slavery dehumanized Blacks, to be reduced to mere chattel has to have an impact on a people. An impact that is transmuted through the generations.

        • evilsandmich

          I do think slavery dehumanized Blacks, to be reduced to mere chattel has to have an impact on a people. An impact that is transmuted through the generations.

          How long is that excuse good for though? I know that Thomas Sowell has written extensively about the fact that blacks were better educated, better behaved, and had a better family structure before the end of mean old Jim Crow and the beginning of Great Society. So did they just dust that old excuse off when poor societal discipline lead to failure?
          Thanks for stickin’ around btw; nice to have some counter-factuals come from someone who isn’t an Internet troll!

      I feel for you Ed. The comments you see directed at yourself is meant for Mr. Anonymous, as you can see he’s too much of a coward to get an identity to show who he really is. No offence to your person.

  • MBlanc46

    It’s not a stereotype. It’s an empirical generalization. Even Ghanaian immigrants can see it’s truth.

    • Martel

      I believe Africans can often be race realist, even humble about differences not in their favour.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Africans seldom, if ever, have the intellectual capacity to be race realist. Like other 3rd world people, they are fiercely tribal. They would take immediate offense to any suggestion of black inferiority. IMO This is just the usual inter-ethnic rivalry between two closely related groups for access to scarce resources.

        • gemjunior

          Believe it or not, in Africa if you asked an African if whites or blacks are smarter he or she would 90% of the time say whites. They take it for granted that whites have better, do better, think better. It’s almost not even questioned. The LIBS are the ones pushing equality on them, and I guess wishful thinking takes over on some of them. But in their hearts they know. I can’t remember the name of the book, but I read about it on here and the author was Gedalia Braun or something similar. Great essays.

        • Martel

          As gemjunior said, I find many Africans who simply observe differences and have little shame in confirming them.I don’t believe you need any impressive intellectual capacity to be a race realist, simply the power to observe, and being free of any ideological inclinations towards denying the truth. I believe in certain African regions both intelligent and average blacks exhibit this behaviour. Naturally, the most intelligent westerners tend to be the opposite, which in itself shows intellectual capacity has little impact on such views.

        • Ed

          You haven’t been around my family, my father will openly cite IQ as the reason an individual or group doesn’t do well. Usually he’s talking about black people.

          You’re right about ethnic strife in Africa but that happens in the West as well. Don’t let this current Pax Europa fool you.

  • bubo

    I used to work with a guy from Ghana. Real personable fellow. He used to tell me of his experiences living in an apartment complex with American black neighbors.

    He would always say, “They are so loud. All of these blacks here do nothing but shout and scream. I cannot understand what they say. It’s not English.”

    He also would ask how they all had babies at such a young age. I told him the government pays them to. He couldn’t believe it.

    He admitted to me that he distrusted them and that they frightened him.

    • WR_the_realist

      Yes, I’ve often noticed that African immigrants often behave better and are more likely to succeed than American blacks, even though they are blacker than American blacks (100% pure African ancestry vs. 80% or so). That goes to show that while genetics plays a role in average racial differences we shouldn’t overlook the importance of culture. American popular culture is poisonous for all races, but has had its worse effects on blacks. And our welfare system rewards dysfunctional behavior in all races, but has had it’s most egregious effects on blacks.

  • Grantland

    Imagine an early IQ test with a cut-off at, say, 110 – or even 100. And Europeans only, of course.

  • Oliver Cromwell

    I work with a real African, i..e one from Africa. Discussing such matters with him he asserts that most real Africans see ‘african-americans’ as an embarrassment and worthy only of contempt.

  • Snazzy Snook

    “Nigerians call American blacks “akata,” or “wild animals.”

    As if they aren’t wild animals themselves .. They’re all the same, just some at times, are more well behaved than the others .. Just piss one of the “Nigerian” negros off and trust me, the head bobbin ,chicken necking, eye rolling, ebonics speaking will come right out of them in a nano second .. They’re ALL the SAME and I want nothing to do with any of them.. I wish the government would stop this B.S forced integration crap and leave us whites alone..

  • Herman

    The problem is children of African immigrants have to act like American blacks to fit in.

      Unfortunate that’s true, nothing like an AA who resents an African whose avoiding them.

  • David Ashton

    There are statistical overlaps in comparing groups designated as races, and these apply to traits other than just “IQ”. I have said before on this site that the CLEVEREST pupil any group that I have ever taught was a black teenager of reputed Nigerian ancestry (though she had a European surname and was not noticeably prognathous), and I have described her extraordinary abilities and good manners; she went on to read physics at Cambridge. But she was a remarkable exception. I still think the right place for such persons is in the constructive leadership of their own racial communities rather than possibly disaffected membership of our own.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Excellent observation. I never thought of that before, but it’s so true.

  • Soon as the majority of American Black see what they procieve as leaders here in the states are making tons of money on there missory, the better off they as a whole will be. There are a small amount of them who do see this, and are good people. but it dose seem that most fall into the world mainly the white man is there proplem. While Government dose not help with too many easy to get on welfair and not enough job training, give them a fish they can eat for a day but to teach them to fish they can eat for life. but they must be willing to go to school and learn skills other than (street skills)
