    Met a few myself. Grew up that way as well. I know the blind spots well. I got lucky and found someone who could see what I could not.

    I'd like to know what problems the pollster believes African Americans are having before answering the question. Speaking strictly for me and mine, those in my household are doing quite fine, thank you.

    The more precise descriptor would refer to the "Failure" of the black culture in an America where there previously was opportunity for everyone, including blacks.

    At this point, while black rage continues to receive most of the media attention and blacks remain a solid staple of Democrat victimhood and dependency, Mexicans have replaced blacks as the primary focus of vote solicitation for Democrats.

    This Democrat shift in focus to Mexicans does not bode well for any hope of a black cultural improvement in the future. Neither does it bode well for the eventual future of the Mexicans as they will have to be forever maintained in victim and dependency status in order to keep them as solid Democrat voters.
    What "previous" opportunities are you referring to when speaking of Blacks in American?

    Are you speaking of the butler? The maid? The shoeshine boy? The chauffer? The landscaper? The gardener? The custodian? The swing band musician? The Pullman Porter? Or are you referring to the doctor, the surgeon, the lawyer, the bank executive, the small business owner, the hedge fund manager, the CEO, the chemist, the physicist, the engineer or any other professional "opportuniy" Whites dominated prior to and since the Civil Rights era because they had access to the highest quality education and job placement that subsequently followed. Surely you referring to those opportunities - all things being equal, right?

    Whenever I see post/polls like this one laced with such vagueness I immediately think "entrapment". The intent isn't to answer a specific question and then as "why". Rather, the purpose is to point fingers, get everyone arguing for or against their own point of view instead of asking the one true question that matters here: "Why ask such non-sense in the first place?"

    Yes, there are problems within African American communities all across the country just as there are problems within Whites communities, Latinos communities and every other community of every other racial group across the country. Yet, instead of the pollster first identifying a specific problem and then asking how can they or WE solve it, he asks a question purposely designed to point fingers and further segregate.

    If you really believe that "this land is my land, this land your land...this land belongs to you and me" you'd never entertain polls of such vagueness designed to fracture rather than elicit solutions to a specific problem. So, to the pollster: Identify a specific "problem" then I'll consider providing what I believe is a viable solution. Until then, I call "troll".

    Black culture does great at keeping their own people down and explaining who is to blame for it.
    Excellent point. My vote was for the DNC, but they're merely the shepherds.

    The progressive Democrat Party has successfully transformed 95% of Black America into a culture of perpetual victim-hood_

    Progressives consider non-whites to be more useful and loyal when the women are barefoot and pregnant, the men are unemployed and angry, and both are dependent on Big Government_

    Regardless of whether they believe it or not; it does appear to be their political strategy in securing minority support_

    but only because that bull is a constant theme on right wing rant radio, and the progressives are tuned in to public broadcasting.
