It often seems like to be "black" is to choose not to be successful in life. This is depressing and obviously counter-productive to the black community and to race relations in general.
I admit I don't get it and I've tried *very* hard to understand it. Still, I don't buy that my race is the barrier to my understanding. That in itself is a racist statement. People are people. It's what they voluntarily choose to believe that causes the problems.

...I think it’s about decades of brainwashing blacks into thinking they’re owed something for being black. The “Great Society” was put in place for just this reason. This mentality has been passed down from Grandma and would take two generations or more to remove, IF a good conservative congress and president were put into place AND they were able to supercede all the “bad” press. The press is now an enemy to all that is good. Even FOX.
