    I know it does not fit your narrative. But that is by far the largest problem.
    Ergo, we're ... not allowed to talk about cops killing black people? Why is "well, blacks kill each other more!" the default fallback argument?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    You can talk about whatever you want. If you cared about blacks you would solve the greatest problem first. Given that you don't by all means loot the liquor stores while chanting that black lives matter (not at all).

    What's the greatest problem? Schools? Police brutality? A general air of racism from the establishment?

    No that's the load, and quite racist.

    Whites in poverty in the city have the exact same problems you realize, their is just less of us. Allot more whites love where their are decent schools, and therefore it is much easier to pull yourself out.

    Welfare keeps people from starving barely. Sometimes it doesn't even doesn't even do that. This con line about how it hurts people and causes them tonne dependant needs to stop... It's just more racist and classiest bs.

    "Black Lives Matter". Or do they only matter under some criteria more than others?

    No all life matters. Blacks killing one another is a reaction to poverty and drug prohibition. If you got rid of prohibition their would be no illicit trade in drugs, hence ending allot of crime and shootings.

    Blacks are trapped (as all poor people are, especially those in the inner city) in a cycle of poverty. It is very hard to break this cycle because the public educational institutions continually are getting cut (usually by cons) and this makes it very hard to escape, although the most motivated do.

    The cycle started with slavery and Jim crow laws. When those laws ended their was very little done to end the effects of the laws, and thus many are still dealing with racisms ramifications.
