Economics, trade and everything else move so fast in today's world. Most don't give a shite about colour, ethnicity or religious beliefs. Those that get stuck on the past are missing out on the opportunities of today.

How are we, people le of color, keeping up in this high commercial world? Are we winning or losing? Are we getting a piece of the pie so to speak? Are we still the poorest of the poor as a group? What is causing this stagnancy? Is it a delay in advancement as a result of our past and the way we are treated? Are we just terrible at business?

Maybe if we stop believing in this Higher spirit, that do not exist and start believing, in ourselves, things will be very different.  Just maybe if we stop looking for Hand outs and blaming everybody, but ourselves, we might not be the poorest race on earth.

I get where you are coming from, but that is as much an over generalisation as is its everybody else's fault brigade.

There are Billions of down trodden Asians, who's lives are literally worth nothing.

Vast swathes of Arabs are poor and disenfranchised. Only the oil rich Sheiks and flaunt their wealth in the face of the underprivileged have a good time of it.

Amongst your fellow Americans there are great trailer parks full of white "Trailer Trash" who could be scorned just as much as Ghetto Blacks.

But yes you are right, self determination to overcome poverty traps IS the way to go, and taking the easy way out of poverty by selling drugs to your brother is destroying the youth and societies far more egregiously than the previous sins of the Black Abusers of the past.
