In my little town in the Rockies a family fleeing the political/religious violence in Chad has settled. They are as you say, sweet.

The US seems evil to some Americans.

It's heaven to people who have lived their day-to-day lives with real evil.

Generally speaking, the immigrants I've met are far more appreciative of American culture and society than are US citizens.
Thanks from Hollywood

Nigeria is a federal republic and has no king. At one time they did have traditional rulers that was more like tribal chiefs rather than kings. Nigeria is just part of what was once British Nigeria that had 521 different tribes and languages.

Nigeria is referred to a the Giant of Africa, third largest population and 20th largest economy in the world.

Most African immigrants that I know do not look too highly upon legacy African-Americans in general. Lack of respect for society and blaming others for their current misfortunes are reasons that I've heard. English speaking Africans generally know a fair amount of US history and speak better English than many native-born Americans. They tend to disdain Ebonics. From my experiences anyway.

I have friends from Tanzania. Absolutely lovely people. Educated, hard working and LOVE this country.

I have said for years we need a government program. EVERY CHILD, rich, poor and of every race WILL sometime between their 18th and 21st birthday spend 3 full months, 90 full days in some third world country. ONLY their first and last nights will be spent in a hotel. The rest of the time they will be in some small village in the middle of nowhere. Africa, Central or South America. Some place where they don't have, running water, electricity, 42 kinds of soup or 15 kinds of cereal at the grocery store, or maybe not even a grocery store. No TV. No cell phones. No access to fast foods or any other kind of restaurant. Le them all spent 3 months sleeping in a grass hut, digging a well, or building a pipeline to the well or building a school. Hell even teaching at a school.

I think they'd all come back with a greater appreciation of what we have. Living out side the country certainly changed my points of view !!
Thanks from imaginethat and Camelot
