    Black culture does great at keeping their own people down and explaining who is to blame for it.
    I would agree with that but it wasn't a choice. I think that they've been misled by both black leadership and the Democrats who have a vested interest in keeping them poor as a voting block. Black leadership has really pushed the failed black culture and continues to do so. People like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have done more to harm blacks in America than any other source.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Individuals are to blame for their problems today.

    The notion that blacks are to blame is ludicrous, unless there is something inherently wrong with black people. Just as its ludicrous to think that Democrats are to blame because they support assistance to people suffering from poverty.

    But no time to spend solving that problem.

    Solving this problem will require a lot of people to get off of their backsides and actually do something.

    I don't expect to see that happen anytime soon.
    "We" can't fix it. They only people who can attempt to fix it, or at least get the situation on the right track, are those who have lived it. No matter the studying, psychological research or anything else, the only people who truly understand it are those who have dealt with it from inside.

    We can commiserate, sympathize, and believe we are empathizing, but getting some of the black people out of the rut they are in can only come from within.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    IMO, seeking a simple answer to a complex question is the most foolish of choices

    So I went with "Other"

    Prior to the introduction of crack, blacks were on track to equal whites in pay, housing, education and a whole host of other issues. Crack basically stopped that and they lost ground.
    The rise of single motherhood as the default African American family model undoubtedly played a large role in this as well.

    Pointing fingers isn't the solution.

    Every American needs to do whatever they can to help solve this problem.

    If everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.

    Any negative-thinking person who refuses to help any Black American with any problem isn't part of the solution, they're part of the problem.

    The correct answer is "all of the above." You can point to individual things each of these groups have done wrong, but at the end of the day, the break-down of communication within culture is what is stalemating black equality.
    Explain something the GOP has done which causes problems for blacks. Be specific please.

    I didn't want to pass the buck. Just because they talk the loudest and stand on the tallest boxes, doesn't make them "leaders". They're snake oil salesmen. They can talk, but blacks don't have to listen, nor do they have to lend credence to those words.
