>>88131237>To be fair selling drugs s pretty profitable with low risk of getting caught, doing it tends to mess people up.
That's my entire point. People of other races won't(ok some will but not to the degree of black people) sell drugs when they're poor because even if they're in a bad spot they know its wrong, and it hurts them and the people around them.
The breakdown of family in the black community seems to have left a void when it comes to passing on basic morality.>Why'd you shoot that cashier>He ain't my kin what do I care?>Why do you sell drugs>why not?
Honestly I don't think any of the black communities problems are racial, but they are cultural. I can tell a black person's upbringing just by talking to them. I can tell which one came from a family unit and which one came from a single mother/broken family.
If you really want to "break the cycle" then you need to start back from the ground up. Put actual working schools in heavy black areas.
Populate them with exceptional teachers.
And then start enforcing attendance, hardcore. Like to the point where being sick is the only excuse to miss. Send SROs to people's houses when students are absent for more than a day or two.
Carry this on through highschool. Focus on teaching these kids social skills and morality as well as practical skills, provide tutors to those who are struggling, forgive those who act out while still expecting them to attend(Expellment would not be a punishment the school system could enact).
And then keep this intensive schooling up for more than a single generation of kids.
I think if you did that, regardless of everything else, the situation in black communities would begin to improve.
People need to see that a lack of education is the root cause of every problem related to race in America today.
