Default Is there a successful nation that is predominantly black?

I am surely not informed or intelligent enough to understand the world outside of the United States, but i'm curious because the black race seems to blame the white race for all that's wrong in the world. For all I know, the white race is to blame for most of the problems, but I can't say one way or the other. A lot of people tell me I look Native American, so it's not like i'm white and trying to lean one way or the other.

I typed "Is there a successful black nation" into google and a lot of articles popped up basically saying there is not any successful black nations...

https://foreignpolicy.com/2016/08/09...an-africanism/

https://www.quora.com/Why-arent-ther...s-in-the-world

https://www.reddit.com/r/TrueReddit/...black_nations/

Etc. And that is me literally taking the first three items that pop up.

If it's true that there aren't any predominantly black nations that are successful, why do blacks complain so much about America? According to what's being stated, they can't thrive if it's just them and no outside races setting up successful societies.

If it's true that there aren't any successful black nations, why do you think that is?

how do you define 'successful'? and remember that europe had a dark age that lasted a millenium. a large number of african countries are younger than some ish posters.

but to answer your vague question, nigeria is projected to be a top 3-10 economy in the world by 2050.

there's a reason gyna is investing heavy in africa right now.

nigerians are also the best educated, most financially 'successful' ethnic group in 'murrica.

Although they make up a tiny portion of the U.S. population, a whopping 17 percent of all Nigerians in this country held master's degrees while 4 percent had a doctorate, according to the 2006 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. In addition, 37 percent had bachelor's degrees.

To put those numbers in perspective, 8 percent of the white population in the U.S. had master's degrees, according to the Census survey. And 1 percent held doctorates. About 19 percent of white residents had bachelor's degrees. Asians come closer to the Nigerians with 12 percent holding master's degrees and 3 percent having doctorates.

But overt racism hasn’t stopped Nigerian-Americans from creating jobs, treating patients, teaching students and contributing to local communities in their new home, all while confidently emerging as one of the country’s most succesful immigrant communities, with a median household income of $62,351, compared to $57,617 nationally, as of 2015.

nigeria right now

Funny, though, they give out a sticker at the end of the visit and my daughter wanted Doc McStuffins, but I accidentally called the sticker by the name of our doctor because they are both black.

YES, THERE IS

My personal fav and possibly mankinds greatest conquest in 500+ years with mininmal resourses and life to build from

The Sentinelese people

A tribal group living on a island thousands of miles off the coast off India that haven't had direct formal contact with humans or society for over 300+ years!

Originally a small indigenous hunters/gathers group who tried fleeing the motherland after continual war lords ran them out.

Somehow managed to find there new home on a remote island, so far off the grid that noone in 200 years were able to locate until around expansion of World War 1

How? They killed all who tried settling on their island! They still do and are supported legally to kill on site by multiple neighboring governments. No chance Columbus returning to Spain with spices and returning back guns blazing!

Centuries later and tons of dirty incentuous reproduction, now these people are estimated at a self sufficient community with 300+

One of the greatest wonders of the world because they are unable and protected of being studied.

What we know:

1. They immediatly attack/kill any human outsiders (as rightfully, as a common cold would wipe their town inda
2. Technology past hunting and gather hasn't much evolved, still use bow and arrows to shoot at boats/helicopters. There's footage
3. No traceable form of known communication, all home cooked stuff

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentinelese

Few good 80's docs on it with comedic violence, coconuts being thrown and film director getting bucked by an arrow

They've been trainging for Elon's Mars journey for generations

Like BlackBruh said, it's all about interpreting the word success

Research has shown the value of life born into and accustomed around simple necessities and slower transportation are far more euphoric than the distant 100 mph rush in daily 1st world society

The Sentinelese people, have probably never even felt a dwelling emothing like depression. Most like a quick negative impulse which fades into survival logic thinking, instead of bitch made estrogen thoughts we got from Obama

70's Hippies tried to do it migrating to Pakistan and elsewhere, failing miserably as well and quickly coon'd into opiate fields for unlimited heroin

Gotta be born into the easy life to get the same dopamine release from the basic things

The closer you get to the equator the hotter it gets and usually you see poverty. The nations in the temperate zone are far more successful. That probably has to do with resources but I also think it's hard to be productive in places that are hotter than hell.
