Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
He's being funny on purpose, I suspect.

Your answer makes the point that the difference between the situation in US is  a just a tiny little bit different to that in Europe. But still people insist on comparing the situation of African-Americans with much smaller populations of recent immigrants.

Which isn't to say the situation in Europe isn't wrong in many ways (as it still is in the US), it's just not useful to make glib, illiterate comparisons between the two situations.
