.. to be black ... In your opinion ... ?

I'll leave it vague 

*Black=Umbrella term that represents those with direct African Lineage

*America = United States Of America

how could anyone answer that without living in multiple countries for an extended period.  i dont even think you can answer that about regions or states of the US unless youve actually lived in them.  hell i cant even answer that about my state because ive only lived in three of the counties and 2 states.

this.. pretty much. 

i was thinking like, 'interesting topic…' 
but then i thought like, 'i can't comment.. cus I've only lived in 1.. I've visited others but i can't really judge from a few weeks in a diff place.. 
its hard to answer. 

but there are a few ppl on here who have lived in diff countries that can comment.. 

-sits-

actually we live in a world where current affairs are at our fingertips you dont have to have lived in certain places to form an opinion on them

bloggers give you up to the minute updates and unless you have only just obtained broadband you can use that to form an opinion albeit second hand but enough to start a conversation on

disagree...

I'm sure you can name places that you WOULD NOT want to live because being black is probably not the best place to be black in.

an Atheist would probably not want to live in Indonesia 
a Muslim probably isn't feeling to fondly of FRANCE

granted those are religious examples but I'm just trying to paint the picture.

when you flip the example upside down...I know where I don't want to live...right?.... but is living where I'm at currently(on a macro scale) the best possible place for me as a black person?

The US is the best place in my personal opinion. We had the civil rights movement, the black is beautiful era, we have a strong black sub culture that others around the world try to immulate. We have Oprah Winfrey and a black President. I've done some traveling and can say Latin America is a very interesting place for black people. In Brazil black people are the majority and aren't even represented on tv or any other media outlet, they are the majority but are like invisible people. I felt as if black people truly felt they were inferior and don't fight hard enough for equal rights. In London the black people are fighting to make sure they have mixed race kids smh. I won't even go in to the Dominican Republic and how they openly hate themselves and deny they are black to anyone who will listen smh. Anyways, just my two cents.

same as above. I can't compare b/c i've only ever lived in the US. And I don't really think that anyone can objectively answer that.

do you mean in terms of race relations? quality of life?
