    Blacks themselves. They encourage scapegoatism and "blaming whitey". If you're a success doing something besides ballin, slingin, or rappin, you're a sellout. If you speak coherently, you're "talking white". If you're black and support responsibility amongst your own, you're an Uncle Tom.

    Black culture does great at keeping their own people down and explaining who is to blame for it.

    I would elaborate on that by asserting it is Black Leadership and Black Cultural Icons that perpetuate these problems within the community. Leadership is responsible for scapegoatism (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton are big in that area) and of course there are numerous examples of bad examples set by Black Icons. If every small black child grew up admiring Herman Cain and yes even President Obama (As much as I disagree with his politics I think he is a good man and a good role model for young african americans.) I think Black America would be far better served.

    It's easier to listen to guys like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton tell you that someone else is to blame for your lot in life than it is to hear intelligent, responsible, successful black Americans talk about the hard work and sacrifice involved in their achievements. That isn't just black Americans; everyone today perpetuates the entitlement mentality.

    Correct answer is not on the list. Crack.

    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.

    Whatever negative trends that occur within the black community, within America, are a product of American society. They don't exist apart from American culture, they are part of it.

    I blame those who, (Like the person who started this thread.), have lots of time to waste talking about a problem.

    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.
