I'm not saying whitey is the cause of the current inequalities, but the sentiment of "THIS IS 'MERICA, PULL YER SELF UP BY YER BOOT STRAPS' kind of misses the point. There's a lot of segregation and inequality that still exists in this country, and the cause of it is complex. Institutional discrimination definitely played a part.
