Right, but the problem is that it is often the immediate assumption that a black person comes from the ghetto, and one has to do a lot to get past that assumption. White people on the other hand start off with a blank slate as it were. Save for having no teeth, and overalls with no shirt, a white person doesn't have to do much to prove that they're not "trash". It's just assumed that they aren't, until something else shows it.

Whenever I start thinking about all the damage that’s been done to America by the social engineering Socialists, I have to remind myself that some of my best friends are left-wingers. That doesn’t do much for my blood pressure, but at least it serves to remind me that they’re not all as self-righteous as George Soros, as fatuous as Michael Moore, as smarmy as Jimmy Carter, as shrill as Nancy Pelosi, as hypocritical as John Murtha, Ted Kennedy and Robert C. Byrd, or as deceptive as Barack Obama, the fellow with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate who has managed to convince millions of people who should know better that he’s a card-carrying centrist.
The whole question of race is a dicey one. Pity the poor fool who wades into those troubled waters. Well, here goes. If a black person tells the truth -- namely, that in 2007, 99% of black problems are self-inflicted -- he is, like Bill Cosby and Thomas Sowell, dismissed as an Uncle Tom. If a white person tells the truth -- namely, that with a 70% illegitimacy rate, no amount of government hand-outs will do anything but provide the cancer victim with a very expensive band-aid -- he’s condemned as a racist.
When blacks say they wish to have a dialogue with whites, it only means that they want a forum at which to bash whites, while their victims provide a Greek chorus of mea culpas, provide the coffee and Danish, and drop a little something in the collection plate on their way out.
There is such a thing as white prejudice. No doubt about it. But it has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with character, culture and values. What blacks refuse to acknowledge is that whites are intolerant of crime and the creeps who commit it, be they black thugs or white trash. The latter are those lowlifes who form Aryan gangs; tattoo themselves with skulls and swastikas; and produce, distribute and use methamphetamines. I don’t know a single white person who isn’t ashamed to be of the same race as these vicious cretins.
But if a person such as Bill Cosby says he’s ashamed of the promiscuity, drug use and illiteracy, that plague the black underclass, he’s called names. The real shame should be that millions of black kids are fatherless; that their taste in music is for anything that’s crude, lewd and loud; that their role models are too often basketball players who make more babies than baskets; whose language skills are embarrassingly abysmal; and that, although most of the street punks are peddling drugs for roughly the minimum wage, they regard it as a worthier, more manly pursuit than working at a 7/11 or, God forbid, going to church, school or a library.
When we finally stop patronizing loafers, louts and criminals, stop encouraging people who were born 120 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, 20 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, to pretend that their sloth and ignorance are the fault of whites, only then will blacks come one step closer to having that colorblind society they claim they want.

My qualms mainly come in when governments purposely introduce factors into the black population meant to destroy it. The best example is crack coc aine.
Focus upon the crucial question: What motive prompted the Contras to undersell the preexisting coc aine distribution inside the United States, by dumping "crack coc aine" into those urban ghetto areas where relatively little, or no coc aine trafficking existed earlier? When the Boland Amendment cut the Contras off from a continued U. S. government subsidy, Bush, his national security adviser Don Gregg, and their lackey Ollie North, turned to certain foreign governments, and to private contributions, to replace U. S. government dollars. Criminal sources of contributions were not excluded. Key to the Contras ' role as a crack force, were certain business-like arrangements with representatives ofthe Colombia coc aine cartels. The Contras received an inventory of coc aine. Therefore, that coc aine must be dumped outside those U. S. domestic markets already supplied by the Colombia cartels' established distribution networks. A new, previously undeveloped market for coc aine must be opened up, a new market into which the Contra coc aine inventory could be dumped at quick-sale prices. Hence, the evidence exhumed by the San Jose Mercury News. Hence, in those ghettoes, many are dead, and many African-American and Hispanic-American convicts are still doing kingpin George Bush's time in Federal and state prisons today.

Ken Barnes says the effect of these generations-old stereotypes can be seen most starkly in the disproportionately poor educational results of black boys when compared with other groups.
"There is an expectation of failure for black children in schools," he says. "And it comes down to how they are historically perceived by the school system.
"Society's continuing image of black men affects the way teachers address the children. But this is a vicious circle. If you continually tell a child that it is naughty then it will act that way."
