You're not looking at the cause of poverty here, just blaming it. You're also not mentioning a culture of hatred against getting educated, where people are so distrustful of the system that anyone wanting to better themselves to escape are culturally shamed (uncle tom, race traitor) into remaining ignorant. Where people care more about Queen B and Jay Z than math and science.
The worst part, are the real racists who EXCUSE bad behavior as if it is part of the racial makeup of blacks.
I am not dismissing the racism in the country, it exists. But using that as an excuse so that you do not even have to try is the real racism. I actually believe black people can be so much better than liberal democrats and the Race Pimps Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are suggesting they can. After all, Ben Carson, Oprah, and Barack Obama are proof that blacks CAN succeed, and that America isn't as racist as some suggest.
