Shouldn’t Black immigrants, many of whom come from an elite group in their home countries, be made to mark “other” on job and university admissions applications, as opposed to African-American?…
The Cable went out in Yvette Carnell's area. The show was complete but she didnt get to go to the callers...
This woman is a white supremacist in black face
You ARE the limit of BLACK solidarity...shame on you for dividing black ppl
Smfh...immigrant...you sound like a white supremacist. They don't care about anything like that. We all black!!!
She hates her own black people...but that's what lesbians do
Why would any person leave a continent full of natural resources like diamonds, oil and gold to come to America to steal from the DOS? Why wouldn't such a person STAY or GO HOME and develop your own riches? Maybe Africans are like most immigrants who always come to rip off the dos and get their white card. Perhaps they're our enemies, or this is a divide and conquer tactic used by the white dominators? It seems as if the dos have NO friends/allies.
Yvette, life is a participatory event. African students are participating. Participation includes being competitive. No other human being shall hand you anything. If they do, it will only be crumbs, eggs and cheese like the welfare system. Let's teach others to participate, not complain on the sidelines.
Some of these comments from someone suggests the issue with Yvette is that she is lightskin. So, anything Yvette says is met with unsubstantiated pushback.
Excellently explained. This is something rarely discussed. It's important for immigrants of color to understand. If you don't understand it, then reverse it. If someone entered your homeland and began to benefit to your detriment, how would you react?
So much of this goes over my head :( everyone hates us so it's no wonder that we don't even like each other
Straight fire. But breathe Yvette......
This is sad and divisive. White people work hard to divide us. Unfortunately we sometimes do the work for them.
#3 Yvette... u may be experiencing DOS interference from 'them' the people who watch you, who watch me, who watch anyone who is effective at influencing large groups of people, especially DOS. You aren't paranoid, watch Eric Snowden videos. He warned us about this years ago but we didn't pay much attention and left him hanging... I paid attention though and make adjustments to my online routines when I can to counteract the problems I experience. As I am outside of America I have more control. If you can figure it out, try to get a backup internet service provider you can switch to, preferably a prepaid provider (I use one called Expresso) that you connect directly with a usb key. Good luck and my Allah keep you and your family safe. Don't let these people think you are insane or paranoid because you aren't. They probably come in your house too and put in surveillance equipment. You may notice small things out of place - they are playing with your mind. Do a marathon of Eric Snowden interviews or listen to audio books on this subject, pay attention and make adjustments.
Never ever ever would an African American have the right nor stand and exist to go into Africa and judge a slight grain of sand! Ever!
#2: I'm really glad you said what you said the way you said it. All of it. I am a Black American living in Africa (Senegal almost 20 yrs) and I am a witness to what goes on with college recruiters here. They go after Africans with money... they ain't trying to have a conversation with black American immigrants about no scholarships but THEY GOT THOSE SLOTS & SCHOLARSHIPS MEANT FOR BLACK AMERICANS when they went to school in the US! It's not fair and it's not right. They need to be forced check 'other' on the box and submit applications with some type of certificate of nationality so they don't get passed along to the 'minority' section. They ain't a minority in their country, right? wth? On the flip side (don't get mad at me Yvette! lol!) BLACK AMERICANS need to stop being so scary about coming to developed countries (Liberia is NOT a place I would go personally nor would I tell anyone else to go there! lol! That's not an example of 'Africa' and going there or any other African country without seeing Senegal first gives people a false perception. Senegal has a high standard of living but gets overlooked because it's (a) French speaking and (b) Muslim majority). Anyway, Senegal has a very good educational system and you can get a degree here in less time with less money and you don't have to speak French to do it. There are many bilingual schools that have access to jobs in development and a bazillion other international positions that Black Americans are shut out of because no one shares that info with us. They share it with Africans tho. How many Africans work for the UN worldwide vs how many Black Americans work there worldwide? It pales in comparison and it's shameful since US tax payers are footing the majority of their salaries.
And colorism is still strong in the U.S. against women within the African American community, because colorism is patriarchal! Do you think we haven’t heard the terms ‘redbone’, ‘yellowbone’, and ‘good hair’ right out of African American men’s mouths? Do you think we haven’t heard black men compare dark skinned black women to animals and say that dark skinned black women take punches better? Why are you trying to minimize the severity of colorism for black women? Furthermore, colorism is worldwide or why would black women in the Caribbean and Africa bleach their skin?!? Why would there be language that praises light skinned black women in the U.S., in the Caribbean, and in Africa?!? Are you crazy? You are a light skinned woman in the black community and you want to diminish the seriousness of colorism in the African American community? Do you ever wonder about the fact that the colorism that specifically benefits light-skinned black women is global and that’s why other black people have such a visceral reaction to you talking about who is or is not “black”? Are you crazy? Do you know what gaslighting is?
#1 it makes no sense to me to have 4 sets of African Americans:DOSlaves native born blacks that go back 5/6 generationsWhite Immigrants from South Africa (yes! along with automatic citizenship - google it)Egyptians, Tunisians, Moroccans and other Arabs from Africa that are born to immigrantsBlack Africans born in the US with African immigrant parentsIt's time to go back to being Black Americans, press for our rights and let the AA thing be SPECIFIC to American Africans. The waters are muddied and the statistics are skewed and they will continue to be until we get a distinct identity.
I'm not interested in any data sources. These statistical analysis are often biased and have hidden agendas. This one perhaps, to further keep us divided among ourselves. Most researchers enter into studies with their own agenda and set off to prove whatever it is they want you to believe. And knowing how well White Supremacy $$ has infiltrated education, media, why in hell would anyone look to find an unbiased article published in favor of, or supporting unity among black immigrants and blk Americans?! This mess is all based on propaganda, keeping us divided so we won't collectively grow as a ppl! Everything you see on the news, the media, the Universities conducting these studies, all are deeply infiltrated and influenced with white Supremacy. Don't take any of this foolishness seriously, learn to do your OWN research! They control the media, the Universities, the information! You only SEE what they want you to see, you only HEAR what they want you to hear! Their goal, Divide and Conquer!!
No they should mark "african". Mixed people should be made to mark other though
A New York Times article from year 2012. Interesting, Germany can payout reparation money to (albeit, tiny and insignificant) money to Jews that lived in "ghettos," or that is to say European style Jim Crow "racial" segregation, but the USA even even richest GDP nation on the whole of planet earth, can't pay a dime to even living ethnic Black-American Baby Boomers or Korean War era blacks that lived in Jim Crow segregated USA?
Linked source and excerpts:
“*For 60th Year, Germany Honors Duty to Pay Holocaust VictimsBy MELISSA EDDYNOV. 17, 2012 *”
‘“Here we started 60 years ago, when the German government was on its knees economically, and yet you made this commitment,” Mr. Eizenstat said Thursday at the event. “And here we are 60 years later at a time when you are bearing the burdens of Europe and a generation never even born during the war continues to fulfill its obligation.”’“Last year, for survivors of ghettos, the amount of time spent there to qualify for compensation was reduced to 12 months from 18 months. As of Nov. 1, the program was opened to survivors living in countries previously under Soviet influence, making an estimated 80,000 more people eligible for one-time payments of $3,250. Starting next year, eligibility will extend to anyone who can prove that they hid from the Nazis for at least six months.”
Yvette you are outstanding!
