The only thing the USA owes black people and other minorities is to treat them as equal human beings.
Do you think it is possible that by lowering the bar for blacks, by keeping expectations down because of "what they have gone thru as a race"
No one is lowering the bar for blacks. Talking about history and current institutionalized racism is lowering the bar? Black people have the only
history that whites get offended by if mentioned or talked about.
by making access to welfare and all the other government programs and here is the most important one
The requirement to be on welfare is income level, not race. Black poverty is directly linked to events of the past, like redlining or the CIA
smuggling crack coc aine into the ghettos. I mean a million things I could name. Yeah, black people can escape it, but they have less of the
probability to due to institutionalized discrimination.
Redlining is the practice of denying, or increasing the cost of services such as banking, insurance, access to jobs, access to health care,
or even supermarkets to residents in particular, often racially determined
Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles by investigative reporter Bill Dedman showed that banks would often lend to lower-income whites but not to
middle- or upper-income blacks. T
A survey of two districts of similar incomes, one being largely white and the other largely black, found that branches in the black community offered
largely subprime loans and almost no prime loans. Studies found out that high-income blacks were almost twice as likely to end up with subprime
home-purchase mortgages as low-income whites. Loan officers were also apparently aware that what they were doing was exploitative, as they referred to
blacks as “mud people” and to subprime lending as “ghetto loans
In December 2007, a class action lawsuit was brought against student loan lending giant Sallie Mae in the United States District Court for the
District of Connecticut, alleging that Sallie Mae discriminated against African American and Hispanic private student loan applicants
however you will never admit that those programs actually hurt the black race
I don't think they hurt any race. Do you think welfare is hurting white single moms? There are some people that abuse them, and others that REALLY
need them. I'd rather have food stamps than malnutrition in the USA.
It will always be because the White man hold you back.
All I ever hear on ATS is that the elites, corporations, democrats, republicans, are holding our whole country back. When black people talk about
white people, they mean the power structure, the elites, not individual white people.
