Most of you have ZERO idea about what it takes to be a black family in the US but you talk as if you have a PhD in "The Black Family Unit". You have no idea how hard it is to obtain credit as a black person. My position allows for me to see the disparities mentioned. I have personally seen blacks with the same financial backgrounds as whites get turned down for loans or lines of credit that their white counterparts have no problem in obtaining. Why does this happen? Your guess is as good as mine but it is a sorry but true fact! The problem with most whites is that even when presented with facts you still believe whatever it is you want to even if it goes against the facts presented. Kinda like religion in that aspect! A very high percentage of blacks are born into poverty or very low-income situations without the support or financial assistance of their white peers parents and grandparents. Blacks do not receive the same education as whites as their schools are no where near as equipped as predominately white school systems. This in turn leads to a lower earning potential when entering the workforce. I think most of you need to really step back and accept these facts as what they are: FACTS. Then we can decide as to how we need to proceed to close this disparity. BTW, blacks do not want to look rich! That was one of the most asinine statements I think I read, among others.

OK here it is in a nutshell...
The reason for blacks being poor and less affluent is because they vote for Democrats who keep them on the political plantation. They join up in worthless organizations such as ACORN, Jessie Jackson, etc. They look for and take government welfare and handouts. And they use a lot of drugs and get women pregnant and refuse to take care of the children they bring into the world. That's why.
Suggestion if you are one of these people. Think for yourself. Work hard for yourself. Take care of family. Get off of drugs. Refuse government handouts. Stay away from scam organizations like ACORN, Jessie Jackson, etc. And please, stop getting on the plantation bus for Democrats, who don't care about you at all.
Whites are not richer because they are white, but because most choose to think for themselves, go for their dreams, and shun con men, and don't vote for commie socialist parties like the Democrat Party. Most are independent minded, want small limited government, and tend to take care of their offspring, even if they are unmarried.
But it's not a white thing, it's a learned thing. Blacks have been trained to stay on the political and social plantation, and choose to play the poor poor victim.
The reason why they call it the American Dream is that you have to be asleep to believe it.
