Since that's true for most people a lenient immigration and naturalization policy would have done the same thing.

Yes, things are like that in Africa thanks to white people messing up governments and making countries with no regard for what people live there, you jackass. And there are successful black people from Africa, ya know.

He has a point. Africa and India were economically better off under colonial rule.

"where are the most successful black ppl now?"

Two words: Barack Obama

Or three, Barack Hussein Obama, as you people are so fond of calling him.

Or what about Oprah? Or Robert L. Johnson?

... can we still count Micheal Jackson?

Very, very incorrect. Even nations that have replaced reletively benign rulers for brutal tyrants, like in Zimbabwe have had their live expectancy rates explode, like in Zimbabwe. When the British left the country in the 60s, the expectancy was around 25. In 1988 it was in the 60s, and even now it is still 10 years higher than during colonislism.

And this is a state which did not have to endure one of the catastrophes of colonialism, like in German East Africa and the Hottentots, or in Congo, Algeria, or other places.

In India, one merely has to look at the number of dead of starvation during British rule to see how terrible it was.

Africa's situation is the resultant of a mixture of widespread ethnic hatred (note Rwanda, Sudan, Mauretania) and postcolonial backlash in which the people who replaced the colonials were just as bad or worse (Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Congo/Kinshasa, Angola). The colonials, both European and Arab, mangled existing social structures and left nothing but the wreckage behind, allowing the most deranged and sociopathic people to grab power in their departure rather than arrange a sensible power-transfer framework in each country.

It has absolutely nothing to do with race and everything to do with the fact that there was nothing keeping the assholes in their place when the colonials left. We're lucky that not all of Africa is like Somalia.
