I’d argue that 90% of the problems being experienced right now by blacks in America are due to black poverty, some 5% are due to black culture and another 5% or so are due to actual white racism. If we fix the poverty problem, in other words, the rest will be a comparatively minuscule issue that will quickly take care of itself.

In my view, you can peel that onion back one more layer and lay the blame on the crappy conditions we allow to persist in the public schools found in low-income neighborhoods.

Fix THAT, as some serious progress might be made.
