What a defeatist attitude that only serves to keep blacks towards the lower rung of society.....
Bottom line in Pride, community, and Family are the differences when it comes to black vs asian communities. Yes, this is a generalization but a true one.
this story is repeated time and time again...ironically adjacent to African American's...San Francisco in the mid to late 70's was where Vietnamese refugees ended up, and their children are now Cal, Stanford and Santa Clara grads far and away out performing their impoverished counterparts. In fact, now in San Francisco, the neighborhoods that were once predominantly black families are now 30 something dual income non-married whites, non-black, non-hispanic. I shudder to think what happened to the African American community there, but if the aggressive family planning campaigns that I was a witness to during those times had anything to do with it, It is an absolute tragedy and I suspect a direct result of progressive social policy.
