Saying America is the worst place for blacks is a stretch .

I say this in everyone of these threads were ppl throw out outrageous superlatives.
Yeah ...you feel some type if way.


Percentage of blacks in ____ makes this hard.

If best means social impact, financially better off, and representation in government then we can find the answers to that.

I'm looking for some comparisons and the percentage of blacks in the other places throws everything off.

It's obviously an opinion thread....if we were looking at some fact sheet then obviously this would be different, but why are u expecting pp to come with graphs, data and stats when it's based on opinion?? Some ppl don't feel they have a strong enough opinion because they haven't been to enough places, some ppl feel opposite. What about that don't you understand?

@ the bolded, yea that's why I find you super annoying in these threads

shiit like that annoys me about you so yea I told you to shut up and gave you your "context"...happy?
 i'm just sayin, calling a place "the worst" is a diss. LOL  

however, you make sense though and that's what i meant earlier by devil i know. for me, america is great by default because i've not directly experienced anything else that's been better or worse. obviously, someone in another country would/could have a different pov of the us based on (in)direct experience.

it be like that.  *shrug*

America is not the worst though. In reality most of you guys have not really experienced bad and I think that Black Americans and Black Canadians have it pretty good in spite of race relations.

Belive me I know....

It isn't that but think it if you must.

I just get the feeling that saying America is the easiest answer in these type of threads.
I think its bc of Americas visibility not necessarily bc it's the worst.

Just bc this is subjective doesn't mean I can't think you're being unreasonable

We are all talking here.

It's ok......

lol but it's my opinion

when i read all the threads here on bhm about whatever unjust thing is happening to black ppl every week, that's how i feel...it's so sad to me
I don't live there but I feel it as deeply as if i did so thats why my statement was so grandiose like that

I've read threads that have me thinking like how do they do it? How do u live in America as a black person and not be scared? I don't know that feeling

Canada isnt perfect by any means but I mean we don't have the same level of violence and ppl don't get away with it as freely as they do in the States, u know what I mean? Maybe guns have to do with it but it's just so sad to me
