Many blacks hold a resentment towards foreigners who come to the United States and end up becoming far more successful then they have. About twelve years ago, I use to work with a guy who immigrated here from Nigeria. Me and him got into a conversation one day, because this guy use to work 12 hour days constantly. So I asked him why is it that he worked so hard. He told me that he wasn't afraid of hard work. He told me that back in Nigeria, he use to work harder then he did now. He said he came to the United States to better his life. I was amazed at what he told next. In the short period of time he was in the country which was about four years, he managed to buy a Mercedes and own three cabs with people driving for him. All the money he made he sent back home to Nigeria for his family. He had little respect for many blacks who were born here he told me, He told me point blank that he believed that a lot of blacks were complainers and were lazy but wanted everything handed to them, and it was crazy that he was able to come to this country and could barely speak English, yet he was more successful then blacks who were born into the opportunity this country provides. To this day, I've never forgotten what he said. He was right. Many blacks who were born as American citizens waste their lives blaming foreigners and whites for their short comings. I can honestly say that I've never hear of African immigrants in the United States claiming that. It's like I've always said. When you are taught that you are life's victim due to the color of your skin, why would you dare try to elevate yourself in life, what's the point right? Those who black and were never taught that don't have that victimization mindset, so they simply go out and succeed at life
. This video I came across proves that perfectly. This exchanged happened about three years ago, but it's still relevant to this day. A self victimized black woman went into a convenience store and got into a heated arrangement with the owners of the store (who were African). The black lady for some reason didn't want to hear that the owners were from Africa. She was angry that they were in the United States and thought somehow they were stealing opportunities from blacks.
