Yeah, it's about time we stop telling blacks that they are not smart enough to compete with whites.

I wanna caution that while your post rang true, it is not the experience of most even in rundown communities, but it is enough to be noticeable,low expectation breathe low self esteem. but I can't say it enough that Black immigrant families from the Caribbean and Africa especially Nigerians are among the most highly educated group in the country.I think Nigerians out paced all others, significantly old line African American females is all so very well represented but the big problem is the old line African American males ,so the landscape is jumbled, this it's clearly not an admittance problem with the Universities it's a community problem that have to be address from the inside out.
Ben Carson is running for president. How many young people would vote for him? He's too conservative and yet he didn't become famous for athletic skills, he was the first to successfully separate conjoined twins. That is more impressive than a Dennis Rodman who could do nothing more than lose money on drinking and gambling and running around with a wedding dress.
But you hear it every day, they want to become the next LeBron James and not another Ben Carson. I will vote for Ben Carson.
