My Observation:
As an African (Kenyan) in America, I sometimes am amazed by what seems to me the stagnation of the African American.

Many seem not to have gotten past the fact that their ancestors were slaves and in fact many still hold slavery against the Anglo's who in this country.

As they moan and groan and pretty much do nothing, immigrants from other nations, Africa included, come into this country and amass untold wealth, riches and education.

I for one believe that for their own healing to begin, African Americans have to move on into the 21st century. What happened in the past happened in the past. It shouldn't be forgotten nor should it be used as an excuse for not progressing. I firmly believe that dwelling in the past only prevents them from moving forward.

What are your thoughts?
