Now that I read it, I see what you mean ChocLot. My comment about the poor neighborhood was not intended to be racial. It's the poverty that I fear, not the people. Anyone of any color living under those conditions will almost certainly face more challenges than I ever have. People in poverty are like 100-yard dash contestants who must begin 20 yards behind the starting line. The "rules" may be exactly the same for everyone, but if you're not starting from the same place, it's not a fair race. Too many black folks still are not starting from the same place.

As I observe the black underclass in my community, I often think, don't you want more out of life than just hangin in da hood, slingin drugs, etc. I don't get why the improvment has been so slow, it was what was wanted when the civil rights movment started, but has been slow to proceed to a point of equality, opportunity is there, but many choose to keep on playing the victim. Funny, but the ones who chose not to improve their situation and continue to play victim and blame white society for all of their problems, are their own worst enemy and too blind to see it. I fear it will be several generations before things change or self destruct.
Sorry for the rant, but since you brought up ''the plight of blacks'' I thought I'd add my 2 cents.
Lets see 1600-1970 Discrimination on an upprecedented level. In the workforce, education and segregation and home ownership.

Most citys segregated its citizens WITH LAWS, they prevented blacks from buying or renting in certain areas. The equal opportunity act, fair housing act all came from this. ALL IN 1980!

This is level? less than 1 generation ago things were equal. You have generation upon generation who have never known equality at all, but somehow you expect them to just ............take advantage of oppurtunities? Like what? minority grants to college? LOL. The supreme court did away with affirmative action grants in 2000~! Since whites like you said it wasnt fair.

Any grant or funds we get comes from OUR OWN PEOPLE. Not yours. Let me discriminate against you, not give you a means to support yourself, throw you all in the same hood and than tell you its equal and everythings fair and well do for yourself. HAHA.

Like I said, the equal housing act, voting rights act, banking laws, etc etc...........all these things are 1 to 2 generations removed from this current generation of blacks. This generation of blacks has done and uplifted themselves in every manner.

They are way more likely now to have kids out marriage, go to college, finish college, and not live in poverty than they were 20 years ago when racism existed in the courts,schools,banking and housing sectors.
