There are a number of blacks who have succeeded in today's America. What that should tell anyone with a brain, is that if one (or more) can become successful, then the opportunities are available for more to do the same. tWhat you seem to be saying is that blacks are unable to take advantage of the opportunities available to them because of past racism. Are you serious? If so, please explain how Asian and African immigrants can come here without speaking the language and within a short period of time become successful? Dr. Williams has demonstrated many times how the black community has suffered because of government subsidizing and rewarding poor behavior through taxpayer largess.
