A study comparing black male students from two-parent upper middle class families in the black bourgeois bastion of Prince George’s Co to white male students from poor families in West Virginia showed that the black male students had lower scores, higher drop-out rates and higher crime rates than the poorer white males.

It’s all about aspirations.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to be Black in America and have the baggage of the public safety net and everyone telling me I am owed something. How could you overcome that?

There was a mention in "The Bell Curve" as well, that blacks in the upper 10% of income had lower SAT scores than whites in the bottom 10%.

Can't fight nature. They say (on average) white men can't jump. While that's true, it's also true that (on average) black men can't think. And in an era that prizes thinking skills rather than a strong sword arm, it's clear which group has the advantage.

Can you find some URLs identifying this study. You have just called attention to one of the societal elephants that officially can never be seen; the incredibly toxic culture of much of black America regardless of economic status. Spend some time around black undergraduate college students to see just how demoralized, vicious and criminal their attitudes are even if they are not out in the streets gang banging. Jim Crow has been eliminated along with de jure racism and segregation. How has what were called Negroes when I was in high school become such a wrecked and depraved lot of people? This is not a racist rant but a genuine query. I am a Southerner and in my not terribly long lifetime have witnessed black people decline into being a truly lost and abandoned group almost devoid of humanity and any spiritual values. How has this happened?
