I lived in Japan for some years and honestly say, if you know the language spoken/written, have a degree and some experience, it could be a great place to live, but likewise in America, but at higher level you'll have do as the romans, but do as the japanese do, but it's not bad if you are introverted and can do a tiny portion of small talk, then it's quite easy.

but I have my reasons for liking where I am and those same reasons may be why someone would hate to be where I am

flying is the safest form of travel Samone ... take some ZZzQUIL, put on your favorite Carl Thomas record ..and wake up after landing ...Clap

London yes! but like anywhere else you have whites that are feeling the "squeeze" & some push back.
The good thing about  London is , it's huge and you likely be able to find your niche.
You will be exposed to many Africans and variations of everyone.
I would strongly recommend leaving the US mixed mentality at home.
You don't know who you're talking to half the time.

If the weather gets to be too much, hit up southern England, Spain, Italy. 
Florida, as well if you just need some USA & sun or want to celebrate the 4th or Labor Day,
it's relatively inexpensive.Smile

IMO race isn't the determining factor, it's economics.

Coming from African parents this is hard to answer. First generation Americans have heard everything about how the grass is greener in our respective countries but yet our parents brought us here.My parents never went a day without talking about going back to Libeia so I don't know. I am interested in others opinions.

I agree with this. I can't put words in other peoples mouth, but if I had a choice between DMV and anywhere else, I think I fare pretty well here. Again this is all I know personally so I'm biassed.

I disagree with this.  Japanese people don't necessarily work "hard."  They like to do things the most difficult fukking way, possible, causing them to work more than they have to.  Also, if their boss is sitting there looking at p0rn, you need to stay there, too, until he leaves.   The other reason why Japanese work long hours is due to the endless meetings they have, so the actual "work hours" where they are actually producing something is on the low side.

I am a teacher, so I get all kinds of holidays off.  My regular working schedule is Monday to Friday from 8:20AM-5PM, but by choice, I come in at 7:45AM and leave at 6PM most days and I come in almost every Saturday. 

For me, Japan has been far better to me than America has.  I don't run into stupid comments half as much as I would in the US.  I am paid much more here than I would be in the US and I have not really faced a whole lot of discrimination because of the color of my skin.  When I do, it's usually white foreigners who dish it out, not the Japanese.

When I calculate " best place to be black" I consider the amount of blacks around me as well.

I need that culture .

So even if I were financially better off in....Norway that still wouldn't be the best place bc my culture wouldn't have a large enough imprint.

But I wouldn't say Haiti either bc even though it's filled with blacks their just isn't enough room for growth.
