I don’t believe what they call racism today is what one normally understands as racism.
The segment of society represented by the blacks have changed from the past. I have worked with, played with and enjoyed being with, a number of blacks in my lifetime. They were good, honest, hard working, family oriented people - and still are.
But as a community they have changed as evidenced by the latest published data that 72% of black births are to unwed mothers, that the prisons are heavily disproportionately filled with blacks, not because of racism but because they disproportionately commit crimes, and on and on.
It is the black community that needs to make a change.

(AfganistaMr Obama said the goal was to "disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-hereQaeda" and its allies.)
All of the institutions that used to serve the black community have been eroded over time and replaced by government programs. Those government programs promise a path out of poverty, but the reality is those programs perpetuate a cycle of poverty, condition people to not work, build a culture of dependency. The same thing was done with native americans. The difference is the motivation behind the system. The current welfare culture has been constructed to build a majority voting block that derives its subsistence straight from the government. Between the Bush tax cuts , EIC credit and expanded giveaways under Obama, the democrats are succeeding.
While some people think they are immune to this, a downside to human nature is the willingness to accept a free lunch.
