Well… there were indeed serious race issues at the beginning of the 1900s - I don’t think anyone disputes that. I think that at one time the civil rights movement had its place, but that purpose has run its course.
I’m guessing you’re not from this country. I have personally lived in many countries and I find that often people who live abroad have a somewhat distorted view of what’s really going on here in American (as, admittedly, many Americans have of what’s going on abroad).
I don’t disagree that education could be a possible factor, but we have bent over backwards to make sure that blacks and minorities get the same education opportunities as whites. This reached its pinnacle during the 60s when poor black kids were bussed to white schools in the name of “segregation”. There are still vestiges of those programs today - here in Oklahoma we have what we call “magnet” schools that are not bound to any geographical location. They actually do quite well because kids have to apply to get in and they are pretty careful about keeping a good demographic mix.
But… the reason the blacks hold the whites in disdain (please understand, this is a generalization and does not in any way represent all blacks’ attitudes towards whites) is because they have built a culture of blame and resistance to personal responsibility. Kids who grow up in ghettos are constantly told by their parents (who were told by THEIR parents) that “the man” (aka “cracka”) is out to get them. This lie is perpetuated by the race baiters such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, et al who are actually local if not national heroes to the blacks.
Do some research on black liberation theology (what Obama’s former pastor preaches), the New Black Panther movement and stuff like that. If you look at their beliefs they are all predicated upon the premise that the white man has exploited and oppressed them and that they are owed some sort of recompense for that. Fact is, there is so much opportunity here in America that blacks, minorities, and whites have absolutely no excuse to wallow in self pity.
