I'm not a fan of either mentally. The bootstraps or the "woe is us." Neither is useful.

I personally don't believe that current systemic racism is the problem. There are too many black people (many foreign) succeeding in spite of it. A significant amount are doing better than the average White American. The problem are the people who are entrenched in an endless viscous cycle from the systemic racism of the past couple hundred years. They are the ones that don't have the tools or the foundation to progress. Its very sad.

Foreign "blacks" are not the same blacks this article is talking about. Everyone knows that Africans who are fob fare much better than the blacks who have been here. 

What significant amount of black people are doing better than the average white American? Confused
The average white American with only a high school diploma/GED has better chance of getting and keeping a job than a black person with a college degree? Factor in how much easier it is for a white person to get secure a housing loan, car loan, and any other white privilege loan or hand out...and I'm just not sure how much better the significant amount is doing.

Please don't allow the token blacks and the 5% African-American corporate workers to represent the whole. Because overall, racism continues to have far-reaching effects on ALL blacks (especially those who were born here).

What if you don't make any money or enough money to begin with 
- because you are paid less or not hired at all for simply being black because the employer buys into stereotypes (like yours)
- corps and businesses are pressured to move out of inner cities or not supported by the city administration specifically to reduce chances of gainful employment
- the inner city community is then gentrified, and you're moved to a location with no jobs in the area

I could go on and on... RACISM is systemic and institutionalized and backed by the govt on all levels and the majority

Designed so that the majority can't "make" it and only a few can creep out... like the lottery

BOOTSTRAPS are a myth until the playing field is leveled 





I am neither racist, nor am I stereotyping.

I said if you make enough money ......

I did not mention any specific Race. I also said all cultures have a percentage of people who get ahead....

Again, no Race was singled out.   My statement was very neutral.

the article is about black people and we are a black board not sure who else you'd be talking about in this thread 

And just because thousands of people win the lottery doesn't mean that the lottery is a means of financial success for millions

The article showcases that the majority hold a severe bias at black's expense and people can still deny that racism exists?
