Now, there are a far greater number of white people in the US than black with no heritable wealth, owing to the greater number of whites if nothing else. They remain out of the spotlight, though, as they are predominately rural...and white. Low college attendance rates among blacks, today, is more a factor of low expectation than of financial ability to attend. It is statistically far easier for minority persons to receive aid to attend college in today's America than it is for whites.
I spent a couple years of highschool at Suitland Senior High School (outskirts of DC). If that experience was the only basis for how I viewed African Americans, I would be a solid racist. Luckily, I grew up going to DOD schools and knew that the thug culture was not representative of African Americans. When I got there, I recognized someone I went to school with in the Phillipines. I knew his dad and I knew his dad would kick his ass if he did poorly in school. He caught hell from the gangster morons for associating with me. But it was far worse when he would raise his hand in class.
Personally, I don't think it's a dem problem or a republican problem. The primary problem is a cultural issue. Until both sides address it, it will never be fixed. I hate to say that I truly believe some of what I stated in an earlier post. That there are many that benefit by keeping the status quo as a voter base.

Government dependency is horrible for the individual and the community, so is collectivism - that crap breeds nothing more than a gang mentality...
Be a libertarian..... Consult the constitution before you have a personal opinion on an issue. The constitution and Bill of Rights only has ONE correct answer - oh, and the best part is that our founding documents never lie.
