I saw this article last week in a Tampa Bay periodical when a coworker (white) pointed it out to me. When I saw the student's name, I immediately inquired if he was an immigrant or a child of an immigrant. They appear to study and work earnestly to succeed at whatever they do. Of course, as I suspected Kwasi was a child of an immigrant.


I see this quite often where either immigrants or their offspring seemed to to perform well in American society...maybe they aren't expecting " society to do more" to help them succeed.


I'd be curious to any credible research that compares the educational success rates of Africans to African-Americans. I recall in college, the African students performed very well and it did not go unnoticed by the predominantly white student body. There was this unspoken question as to why the black Americans students didn't stand out academically?

I find it sad the study didn't reference black women or girls at all. I HATE to admit it but I never noticed how male-centric studies on blacks were until I visited this blog and black women empowerment sites. Again, I find this revelation troubling.

I love this recollection of Brenda's teen years. It reminds me so much of my teen years when all my celebrity crushes were on white men.
