Its not my job to tell you what it is. You are the one suggesting it is racism, You explain how it is racism. Don't just say, ... "it has to be". That is how the news media makes everyone think there is racism in everything. They find some statistics that look negatively on blacks and then say "There might be racism in <blank> and then everyone says, "Those RACIST ****ERS!" You are one of those reactionists that suck that **** up from the mainstream media as if it were accurate information.There are other variables, ie where people live, their socio-economic factors, but these other variables have been impacted by racism as well. If you can think of some variable that explains the discrepencies between the demographics of the races, other than race, please, I am begging you, tell me what it is.
There is a difference between Fredrick Douglass, a free man, and slaves. Blacks now are free. Duh. This is too easy.Are you suggesting that if ANY Black men succeed that there is no oppression of Black men?
We aren't an oppressive nation. We have people who lack the desire to suceed. Or they measure their success in different ways.My answer is that there are many extremely smart, talented and driven Black people in this country who manage to succeed in spite of the many obstacles they face. Also, Black culture and community, all things considered has done a fairly good job of providing strategies for success in an oppressive nation.
Don't ask me. I have a desire to succeed. I can't explain the reason for the cultural differences between whites and blacks, why blacks are so attracted to gangs and crime at much higher rates than whites are.So why is it then that so many Blacks, as you have it, lack the "motivation to succeed, holding true to family values", etc? Please offer an answer without appealing to race or racism. Why does the "some people have it, some people don't" thing also have huge statistical discrepencies based on race? I'm dying to know.
