What, I wonder (sardonically) could it have been?
Several problems have come along that didn't help the Black people much at all. Sure, slavery was finally abolished, but they were still second class citizens until finally the 1960's, with the Civil Rights movement. When the doors finally opened for them, completely unrestricted, the US government had a hand in two issues that wrecked the hell out of the Black neighborhoods. One, was the new war on drugs, where it pretty much gave the police and federal agents free rein to terrorize the poor neighborhoods, and lock many Black men up, which started the ball rolling for single mothers having the raise kids. With the drugs came the gangs and drug dealers, and well, the rest is history.

The other thing that didn't help matters. While affirmative actions was put into law, it didn't help much that major manufactures were already starting to out source jobs to over seas. Most of those manufacturing jobs were located in Black neighborhoods, and that helped keep those neighborhoods going. But once they started to pull out, the neighborhood was left struggling to find work and keep their community afloat. Sadly, back then, most investors weren't too crazy to put businesses up in those neighborhoods, so the newly elected leaders had to find some way to keep things going, and here is when the corruption, crime and drugs start coming. The more crime, drugs, and struggling schools there were, the more the federal dollars came pouring in.

Then let's look at the fields where the Black people seem to soar in. Sports and the entertainment industry. And, it's a sad fact, when Black people start becoming successful, their own home town will not welcome them, mostly due to the fact the politicians are corrupt and make too much money with things being bad instead of good. We also have the fact that the entertainers are being controlled by greedy, psychotic managers and studios who like to keep the entertainers drugged up to keep control of them, and to exploit them because managers and studios believe in the sex sells theory. And sadly, this is what the youth today is being exposed to.

The way they see it, had blacks been free and treated equally over the last 300 years.....blacks would still be poorer, have higher crime rates, have more single parent homes, have lower test scores, etc.....due to our nature being inferior to whites. You cannot change peoples minds who believe this!!!
I don't know anyone who sees "black people" as inferior.

I do know people (myself included) who see personal choices and decisions as inferior.

Let me introduce you to Ralph_N_1962.

Blaming black poverty on single motherhood, high school dropout rate etc is like blaming the symptoms for the disease.

It's not just America where Black people are dysfunctional. Africa is the poorest continent on the planet. Black people in the Caribbean and Latin America are the poorest on their racial ladders. Black people in Europe cause all the same problems as Black people in America.

It's fairly obvious - human beings are not all equal, and we're seeing the outcome.

The fact is the black community has the highest single motherhood rate, and the highest school dropout rate of all races in the United States.

Those are personal choices, not "institutionalized" racism.

Change my mind.
In agreement. Poor parenting aswell. But also the affects of slavery and Jim crow still plagues your rank and file African American. Alot of factors are issues for why poverty still exist in African American communities.

Also one must ask. Why do Africans, afro caribbeans and afro latinos do well over your average African American? Does your legacy of slavery and Jim crow hamper African Americans vs societies that did not have the same level of victimization?

I doubt that either of those two have ever spent much time in "the black community." They've maybe had a few campaign stops with their armed guards in tow, that's probably about it. So why take what they have to say on this subject seriously?

There is nothing to be concerned about, Gillibrand is going to go into the white communities and explain that white kids will never get shot wearing a hoodie because they are white and after that we will all live happily ever after.

What gall this woman has to assume that our police are biased and incompetent.
