hmmmm.... i think the "some" you may be referring to are those on the fence (read...weak mindedOuch) or what i typically see as "sheltered" unquestionables.  meaning THEY themselves aren't really unquestionable by nature...
 
it's complex i admit...but i guess since i lived it and experienced it first hand...it seems natural to me...

Pretty much

Ridiculous

Black American. African. African American. 1st generation African American. Does it really matter?

Labels aside, can we just take a min to appreciate another positive representation and achievement of a minority.

And great thread.

I'm not surprised when I read stories like this - we have many talented and educated individuals in our community; they just don't get fair representation in the media.

Congrats to him! 

If you are referring to the poster asking where he is from, I think it is because of his name that she asked. If you have a non American sounding name people are quick to ask/guess where you are from. If not then carry on.

I saw him on the news a few weeks ago. That is awesome- its been great to hear/see multiple stories of young black men excelling to the existent that " the others" can't deem their success as an exception.

They stated fifty times he is African American and his name is 'Tunde. It is a documented fact other ethnicities besides African Americans excel higher. It is what it is. Y'all be tryna censor people. Get a life.
