But congrats on this brother, you're so lucky to be African and intelligent that is the difference between AA women and African women. One chooses outside and the other chooses the inside.

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

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." This has almost nothing to do with Enin, who is obviously a remarkable young man, and everything to do with how America perceives and portrays black Americans and African immigrants. 

RELATED: Arizona Lawmakers Can't Spell the Name of the Abortion Drug They Banned

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. "Africans who come to the U.S. are statistically more successful than African Americans and they think 'if I could do it, why not them?'" she wrote

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."

D.C. High Schooler Accepted Into Five Ivy League Schools


For many high school seniors, sending out college applications is one of the most stressful events of the year, but for one D.C. student, getting in was easy, and now it's time to decide where to go.

Seventeen-year-old Avery Coffey is a student at Benjamin Banneker High School, a four-sport student athlete and the recipient of five ivy league school acceptance letters.

With an acceptance roster that includes Harvard, Yale, Brown, University of Pennsylvania and Princeton, the southeast D.C. native has the world at his fingertips.

"I think Harvard has a slight edge, but I'm still trying to decide," he said.

Raised by a single mother in one of the poorest wards in the District, Coffey did not have an easy road to success, but against the odds, he has managed to accomplish a feat few else will.

In addition to the ivies, Coffey has also been offered full rides at George Washington University and Howard University.

When asked the secret to his striking success, the academic wunderkind says, "If you come here and you know exactly what you want to do and have the determination to do the work, you will be successful here."
