Are Caribbean People Right When They Say That Americans Are Lazy?

  • The Boldest Man On The 'Net LanceScurv takes to the streets of Orlando Florida to ask a question that has been long circulating as a statement in the Black community between those who are of Caribbean descent and of American lineage. Are Caribbean People Right When they say Americans are LAZY?
    Many who have migrated to the shores of the United States of America have shared these same thoughts when striving to improve the quality of their life through hard work.
    While many who were born and raised in America will never know how much of a fight it can be sometimes to even make it through the grueling immigration process to finally get here, the general feeling is that most do not understand how many opportunities are here and take for granted the things here that are so freely given away.
    So when
    you have a naturalized individual who arrives here to America with all of the enthusiasm to achieve a new life with absolutely no limits, you also may have an individual who appears to them to not have enough fire in their belly and is content to sit back and take the easy route for the most part. The worst of which will settle for doing nothing with their lives as they settle for what they can get from a small welfare check.
    So now with the difference in mentalities diametrically opposed to one another, the friction between them will erupt on jobs, churches and many places where there is a regular contact which will place a wedge between them as the American born person will feel that this foreigner is trying to make all of the money and take all of the jobs while that so called "foreigner" will think the least of them for not taking their lives into their own hands as they complain their day away.
    This for many years specifically has been an issue between those Blacks who have migrated from the various islands of the Caribbean and those who classify themselves as African American. Now, if the truth be told, if you were to survey many people who broadly fall into these two categories you will probably receive many different responses because you also have those African Americans like myself who have parents or a parent of Caribbean descent but were born here yet understand both mindsets and mentalities.
    Granted, being born in the Caribbean does not mean that one possesses an overwhelming zeal to succeed because the fact of the matter is that many ambitious immigrants from the islands will tell you of the multitudes of lazy people that they left behind "back home."
    When you see the first people in a family who has crossed the shores to claim America as their home, you are viewing the most ambitious of their clan because it takes so much fire in the belly to make such a drastic change and go through the culture shock that be crippling to say the least. After that first wave of enthused immigrants arrive it is then that the riff raff will follow after a way has been made initially by those who were more disciplined and responsible.
    So when you see the ever growing Caribbean communities thrive shortly after the first have come, shortly afterward you will see the crime there grow to nuisance proportions because of that no good lazy drunk Uncle or that fast club hopping irresponsible Sister who got a free pass to come here because of the hard work and sweat of her sibling.
    On the other hand you have hard working ambitious African Americans who would sincerely be insulted at the hint of their being classified as a lazy person. Yes, we have challenges here in the African American community when it comes to crime, unemployment, drugs, incarceration and climbing illiteracy rates, but we still have an overwhelming amount of law abiding, deceit, ambitious stellar pillars of society and fine examples of what a model citizen should be.
    So I've said ALL of this to ask you one thing, how much credibility or validity does the show topic's title have?
    Is there any truth to it?
    Should we be asking it in the first place?
    Is focusing on it really a distraction to divide us ultimately?
    Or should we dialogue on these perceptions and do away with these negative stigmas right away so that they don't linger on and cause major problems down the road for a unified community that will suffer together under racism as we are all one nation in the human family?
    Tune in no matter WHO you are and let us bring these perceptions to a head and deal with the raw truth!

    So no one in New York get welfare? Y'all even get it twice a month and there are a lot of carribean people in New york.....lets not go there. This is the era to attack AA and we are on to these mothafuckas. Foreign black people be the first to wonder why we don't fight for immigration anymore because it's a stab in the back for us, that's why.

    Its ironic to me that Caribbean ppl would dare to open their mouth to say we are lazy, when the only reason they were allowed to come here; is because of the work my ancestors put in.
    Furthermore you are being chosen for cheap labor not skilled labor; and are given our opportunities, over us. You are just a tool of white supremacy. Not harder working, not smarter. Just a tool being used to keep Uppity American Negroes in their place.
    I thank you for sharing what you deem to be true, however. I just hope you can take my honest historically based truth as well. Shalam

    White Americans are very lazy. In the old days the rode horses and drink lemonade. Today, they will like about
    credentials just to sit at a desk and let the people of color who do the manual work.

    Caribbean men mostly stick with children when it comes to raising. Caribbean people will work two three jobs. I have
    Three employers right now and this American man wanted me to buy for his children instead off working and purchasing things for his teenaged son and young adult son.

    I think some of y'all are lazy cuz all black people that's not AS do is compare themselves to AA.

  • Dayshawn Alexander

    Something to consider: there are classes in the Caribbean as well. The West Indians that immigrated here are the ones that have some resources and education. There vast majority of black people in the states are not impoverished. You are comparing the educated Caribbeans with resources to the lower classes of African Americans.
    Just something to consider.

    I'm Caribbean and that's all I heard growing up when I came to America. Then I learned about the systematic oppression African Americans had to face and the psychological effects that linger on today. I had to check myself because I felt that way. My husband is American and works harder than me so I'm glad I learned from my mistake. Laziness is a worldwide issue so we need to stop the stereotypes.

If you want to say Black Americans just say it. I come from a family of hard working people, who worked and had government assistance to supplement what they were missing from their income

This video just keeps black North Americans and Caribbean blacks divided because I bet there are some black Americans in the comment section that are buying into this bullshit and i bet they be saying these Caribbean people are jealous of us these Caribbean people wish they were like us black Americans it's all a bunch of bullshit. This is why black people can't get anywhere Good we too busy fighting each other stabbing each other in the backs and that's nothing but pure Negative Toxic Bullshit.

    Native black Americans built the land of the so-called free for free and have never been compensated, they have also been sabotaged every step of the way. Black America is traumatised by abuse, they are not lazy. Black Jamaicans and black Americans have the same DNA haplogroup, we are lost due to lack of knowledge.

    Look, you live in America, situations, will grind some people to powder, wear down their very spirits. How many of you were here struggling for civil rights, during the struggle? They say, " puss and dog don't have the same luck ", meaning some whites dislike the local blacks so much, they won't give them a chance. Yes, and careless statements like this make black Americans fight against you, for things like this. I have encountered a lot of hate from them in the employment process, no doubt it's things like this that create that level of animosity. So now they start calling for your asses to be deported, and you say you have bad luck. When you go to people's country, it behoove you to show some bloody respect. Some people have issues more than you can ever thought of dealing with. These people being beaten down for so long until, they're thrown into chaos. Give you brother and sister encouragement and a hand up, and not beat them down. There are times certain individuals come and try to put a bug in your ears, so you could have a bloated ego, and fight among ourselves, and be distracted from our primary objectives. The wellbeing of the black commonwealth is our primary objective, starting with ourselves, our families and neighbours. So people, check yourselves, bury that pomposity and that arrogance in the ground where it belong. There are some people who want other people to love work, only for the purpose of making them rich, not to benefit the worker at all, this discourage people, when they can't pay their bills. Wasn't that what they tell the slaves, when they refuse to work.
    Stop beating up on your people, do you, if you don't have a good word to say, keep your bloody mouth / trap shut.

    NOT 1 TIME ANY OF THESE WHITE EUROPEAN GROUPS HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED BY BLACK AMERICANS TO GI BACK HOME TO IRELAND ON THE CAULIFLOWER BOAT 🚢
