Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

hmm, after three hundred years one should think that the blacks of America would be finally "intergrated". It took quite a while ...

I have to admit that I just wonder why you compare apples and oranges. I think the Muslim youth that is involved in burning cars and throwing stones in France are third generation immigrants at the most. Am I wrong in that assumption?

Blacks were never immigrants to the US, they were slaves. Aside from newly immigrating blacks from the carribean and the very new and few immigrants from African countries today, I would say there are no black immigrants in the US to which you could compare the immigrant population in France. You think I am wrong?

There are a moderate number of immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean: about 60,000 and 80,000 per year.

Since when do they immigrate from Africa in the past in these numbers.? I was aware about immigration from the Caribbeans in those numbers and also since a long time, but wouldn't have thought that 60,000 Africans came yearly to the US during the last fifty years.

They do. Mostly it's educated people from Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, and a few other sub-Saharan places. It's on one of the government labor statistics pages but I can't find it right now...
