On Blackness

Good stuff from Juan non-Volokh over at The Volokh Conspiracy:
Apparently African and Caribbean immigrants remain insufficiently aware of the "color line" which prevents them from succeeding in America.

Of course there is another explanation: African and Caribbean immigrants experience greater rates of educational, professional, and economic success than native-born blacks. African-born blacks are among the most successful immigrant groups in the United States in terms of education and per-capita income. With more success, perhaps these immigrant groups have less to blame on "white America" – or in another panelist’s phrase, "white supremacy." Alternatively, perhaps the refusal of immigrant groups to embrace victim status explains part of their success.
