There are no successful black nations

Nigeria, the most populous black nation on Earth, is on the brink of collapse. The machineries that make a nation exist, let alone succeed, have all eroded. A culture of incompetence, endemic corruption, dignified ineptitude, and, chief among all, destructive selfishness and greed has played a major role in its unraveling. The same, sadly, can be said for most other African nations. States like Zimbabwe, Cameroon, and Equatorial Guinea are farcical democracies ruled by men who exclusively cater to their interests and those of their clipped circles. Thus, it is no surprise that in the absence of any healthy black nation – in the midst of chaos, senseless wars, corrupted religiosity, violence, and economic collapse – African and Caribbean people leave home en masse. They beg on the streets of Greece, prostitute in the red-light zones of the Netherlands, and make up 40% of the migrants flocking to Europe. Be assured, the indignity will continue. Black activists across the world have adopted a culture of verbal tyranny in which they shut down any effort to reason or criticize blacks or black-majority nations by labeling such attempts as “racism” or “hate speech.” Thus, one can be certain that any suggestions that the black race may indeed need to do something to remedy their situation will not be aired — not by the terrified people of other races. And anyone within the black race who makes such a suggestion will be deemed weak and pandering or a sellout. Thus, no one will talk about the painful fact that most African and Caribbean nations have either failed or are about to collapse.

Other than rule by a white minority, the best government for an African nation is no government, or rather, a patchwork of tribal statelets like Somalia. At least then you get to be ruled by a tyrant of your own tribe. Since its official government collapsed in 1990, Somalia has, by most measures of development, become one of the best countries in Africa, though still pretty horrific by Western standards.

All people without exception divide the world into "us" and "them". This identity must be reciprocal, for if "us" to you means "all people" or "all life on Earth", you will not survive long in the real world (cf. Pippa Bacca, Tim Treadwell). There is little or nothing government can do to create a sense of "us" -- it has to exist organically.

Are you speaking of an African, Muslim, Latino, Asian nation or the USA ?

At the beginning, the post is about Nigeria but most of that nation's major problems are being experienced by other African countries.
