Africa is Africa.
Other. They wouldn't exist today. Many black Americans are descended from multiple African tribes/nationalities and even some European,native American and other descent. If black people were not brought here to American their ancestors would have continued mixing with their own tribes and or possibly been killed off. their descendants would be completely different people today. The people of African descent whose ancestors immigrated on their own to this country would be completely different people today because would not have had the gene-pool of the black Americans whose ancestors were brought here as slaves to mix with.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

Yes and a foolish claim is a foolish claim.Africa is Africa.
The obvious conclusion is that they would be doing just as well as anybody else if it wasn't for the method by which their ancestors arrived.
Also probably true is that slavery is the only route that could have brought black people to the US. I mean, during the period of the slave trade, is there even one example of black emigration from Africa? Why would they have wanted to go to the US? And why would the US have accepted them?
He who knows the least obeys the best.
So youre saying there's a genetic and physiological reason that some Black people struggle and its directly connected to Slavery ?
Riculous and arbitrary narratives that are based on convincing people that they're perennial victims based on nothing but some idiots opinion have far more to do with the struggles that some Black Americans go through than " Slavery " does.
But back to African Americans, how many will take a one way ticket to Africa?
And people act like blacks were the only people that were ever slaves. The Romans had slaves and are we better for the Roman Empire existing? I would say certainly. Maybe one of your ancestors was a Roman slave. Black people are not the only ones that have been slaves.
But anyway, I suggest that America offer all black 'hands up dont shoot' protesters a one way ticket to Africa. But would Africa really want these complainers? Imagine what they will expect from African governments and society.
Imagine if you were an actual African living in Africa and you saw African Americans on tv complaining about living in America. That would disgust them you would imagine.
