A Major Problem Facing Black America

Apparently, some folks at Alas, a Blog have discovered one of the biggest problems facing black America: too many black men are not blaming white people for their problems.

I particularly enjoyed this comment (#4):

In one sense, I actually feel that “accepting personal responsibility” (as the Republicans put it) rather than acknowledging the influence of prejudice is taking the easy way out. If you acknowledge that prejudice exists, you might have to do something about it. It’s easier to just accept that you’re going to have to work harder to succeed, especially when the possibility of success IS really open to those who are particularly bright, hard working, lucky, etc, than to try to change the system to make it fair.

Yes, blaming other people, as long as they are white men, for of your problems is what shows true character.

That is all.
