    Where is a good place to raise Black kids, in your opinion? I am open to moving abroad, especially to Africa. I am tired of how stupid things are in America. We have no solidarity here.

    It is problematic, but no matter where you go or where you live, there will be events, people, and cultural differences that will not be in harmony with what you would choose for yourself or your family. The best place to give your children the best environment that will be most encouraging and positive for their growth is in the controlled environment of your home, no matter where that maybe. What elements that you let into your home or keep out will be the greatest influences on your family. When the tv and other mechanical distractions are off you have, or will have time to interact with them. The books, movies, games, songs, moral values, and spiritual teachings will be your hedge against the influences that they will surely encounter as they interact with people outside of your relm of influence and control. "Bend a tree while it is young and it will grow straight thereafter". You are the parent, and your home is not a democracy, you will listen to your children but the final decissions are left to the adults and not the children. This may take a little time for them to get use to your balance of love and discipline but with consistancy they will get use to accepting your position and will usually fall in line. They learn that your home is a sanctuary of love, discipline and peace. They will also learn that the things done in the streets or world are not acceptable in your home if they are not good and positive. Peace

    A country area on the outskirts of a city.

    You get the best of both.

    Sister, what do you wish to achieve?

    You can raise excellent Africans anywhere in this world. To raise well, you need to inculcate an intelligent consciousness.

    However, if you want to live in Prosperous, Independent African Communities, it's fitting for you to not just change the consciousness of your progeny, but the consciousness of your community wherever you go.

    This you should reflect upon. Think of your former experiences and your influence therein. Then know in yourself how you can make the difference that secures goodness for your adopted community.

    I never said "black kids" are stupid. I think our kids are very intelligent, especially working and befriending them on a regular basis.

    My child got in IEP because the system is unfair. I want to go a place where the system is fair.

    Are you offended at the way I worded my post? Because I was not trying to offend. If I did offend you, tell me where I went wrong so it won't happen again.

    Australia easiest.

    I wouldn't advise Africa as it is of now (too many ongoing conflicts and corruption) unless we are talking of the creole island states like Seychelles in the Indian ocean by Africa or maybe Ghana and Botswana. There an Afro-American with buying power can easily set a business like a small hotel. Seychelles is also a paradise with virtually zero crime rate.

    Still I think you should stay in the US as it is a vast country. Maybe there are better, more progressive states. The thing is never stop fighting for your children and don't let them wolves break you. You'll succeed if you understand the nature of reality; do not seek refuge in religion or superstition. Use your resource carefully. Be brave, sister.

    peace

    No you didn't offend me, but the way it was worded came off a little strange which is why i put the question mark after 'black kids'. It sounded like you were asking someone of another race where 'black kids' should be raised. But, it's the first time i've read one of your post's so maybe i just need to get used to your writing style.

    - like here, i never said you said 'black kids' are stupid. I didn't even come close to acussing you of anything like this, so how or why you felt the need to defend yourself like this is interesting...
