Printer I can understand some of your points but ?can you see that race wouldn't be a big deal there bc of the homogeneity?

You say the percentage of blacks there is 2.5 percent.

Let's draw some conclusions from that...

They will never get it - never.
 
People have to get away from America to see how the rest of the world lives.
 
Sometimes people ask if I miss The States ... and I can honestly say .. no.

why do you assume that we haven't been away from america..? 
i try not to go along with the group and call you a coon.. but that was side-eye worthy. there are many many ppl on here who have traveled all around. 

anyways, ill reply to you later hairdo.

Percentage wise?

I would consider moving but I would feel inconsequential.
Not a big enough imprint.

Now let blacks make a mass exodus to the Netherlands.

I wonder how them nice white folk would feel then...


I understand the difference in cultures though. Especially when it comes to Americas stupid fear of socialism.

But I think a lot what keeps the Netherlands together is its homogeneity...

A good chunk of that peace is you guys being easy to ignore
 
Wow and you would KNOW this just from what? Reading something or something you head? 
 
I think you are grossly misinformed but I have tried to explain it ..  I am out now too.
 
What a waste.

I've been places other than my beloved negro land

Not for months or years at a time though.

But yes it's a fact that homogeneity has an affect on culture.

You're denying this?

Well, I have tried to explain to you .. but there is more to a country that is older than America than I can document on this thread.
 
The Dutch do not have the SAME history as America .. so why should they have the same percentage of Blacks? Every country is different with their own legacy and problems and guess what? It's not always involving Black people.
 
I really think you try to make Black people the center of a universe around which ... everything else resolves.Confused
 
I am out of this thread too.
 
What a waste.

Lol. I wouldn't want live in a country where there isn't another Black person in a stones throw.

And even if being a Black American is a struggle with racism, I wanna struggle with my people and help them and serve them. Plus, my ancestors built this country. It belongs to me.

Tell me how many blacks outside of US have as much money as Jay z or 50Cent?
How many black women out of the US are as richer as Oprah? 
 

Okay, with respect – because I like you.



Ooooooohhh I got brownie points with Printer!!!!!

About what Printer said, it makes sense: it is not so much about the money, but quality life. Here in the US you can have that, but you need to work really hard, due to some people's misconception of blacks being lazy. I actually think it is possible to have that in most countries in the world, as a black person, if you work hard.

So I don't think there is a best place. Maybe whenever I live in Europe I will have a better answer to this thread. You have to experience it yourself; I have met people who have experienced racism in Paris, while others didn't; so the answer depends of who is speaking.
