But, NEGROLOGICAL, do you realize you assigned that behavior to "Black Americans" generally... As in MOST of us, if not ALL of us. What's problematic, IMO, is that the sentiment seems so is symptomatic. Which is part of the reason for my thread on Accumulated Knowledge.
The funny thing about all this, these supposed critiques, is how they have ignored what was plain to see in the article. ALL ASIANS AREN'T LIKE THAT... and those who are AMERICANIZED are, demonstrably, less so. But never an opportunity missed due to this weird drive to "critique" and justify it no matter what.
N-Logical, you jumped right in with the stereotyping and since you could attest to one person who fit the stereotype, you felt justified in using it to effectively berate Black People. That's what you communicated whether you intended it our not.
FYI, stereotypes work both ways. You can discredit and you can also give too much credit or overstate things, as you did.
you missed the entire point. are you disagreeing that black people (as a whole) would be better off if there was a profound attachment to community as my indian example? and why? i'd like you to be more specific...
