Actually it’s the other way around, Aimahn. To immigrate and to afford travel across the world to the united states, most likely you would have to be both educated and middle class. And very motivated to begin with. And with a goal in mind. It’s unfair to compare newly transported immigrants with those who’ve lived here and lived under certain depressed conditions. My parents were immigrants once and brought me here as a young child. They were once very arrogant about the things they achieved over “just plain ole black folks” but got over it quickly once they had a chance to settle in and observe. I don’t know how long you’ve been here, but it’s naive to think (your) education somehow transcends (other people’s) racism.
