    Our African-Diaspora brothers and sisters who come to America are doing far better than our native-born brothers and sisters. They are mastering the Language, getting accepted to the top Universities, and African Immigrants, in particular, have the highest Degree acquisition rate in entire US population.

    Lower Poverty Rates

    Unfortunately, they are less likely to own a home

    In the end, there is much our native-born community can learn from the brothers and sisters that are immigrating here from Africa and the Diaspora.

    I see only 4 colors of the spectrum as far as my take on society, it's ills, it's progression and our place in the grand scheme of things beneficial to us and us only.

    1. Green a/k/a curency
    2. Black a/k/a African, Black a/k/a African-American, Black a/k/a Caribbean
    3. People of color who are neither Black or White irregardless of what the United States Census Bureau states.
    4. White a/k/a Caucasian
    5. Reserved for future analysis to prove the existence of ALF's

    The only graph I saw that was surprising was the home ownership. I guess that can be explained by what the immigrants goals are. Are they here for just the education/opportunities or are they intending on staying in the US permanently?

    African immigrants are more educated than most — including people born in U.S.

    While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the "diversity visa program" aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated that people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

    This artical is not race specific. It does not say African Immigrants are more educated than Blacks.

    There is a lot all Americans can learn from Africa.

    The article is specific concerning Blacks who are immigrants and their achievements. It shows that as a percentage of their population, African immigrants have more degrees than any other immigrant group in the US. They also are outdoing the US population overall and our native Black population.

    You wish. If you were pure black, you would be cheering their accomplishments, not trying to down play them.
