Is there an inherent dysfunction, even pathology in the Black American community which


accounts for the negative attitude of passivity & dependency which is prevalent in many Black American communities? Will Black Americans arise out of their psychosocial morass? As a middle class Black American, I feel that many Black Americans have regressed instead of progressed. There is such a negativity in many Black American communities-the passivity & dependency instead of being accountable & believing in constructive behavior. The theme now is rescue me, I'm poor & oppressed-how SAD INDEED!
