To Blacks out there, what are the factors besides racism which lead to Black Americans
being the most socioeconomically disenfranchised & powerless group as opposed to Black Caribbeans & Black Africans who are more socioeconomically successful? What is in Black Americans' social conditioning which lead to their powerlessness?(Disclaimer: I am a Black female of both American/Caribbean heritage)
Besides Racism ??? When Slavery ended Racism began . There was at one time a Black Wall street in Oklahoma Racism and hate set the Black socioeconomically success on fire. Racism in America made the Negro with no name and no history the only such people on the planet after slavery ended. These Negros were consider sub-human with no rights until the civil rights movement of the 1950's and 60's, These people you asked about had 30 years until the Reagan Presidency to wake up and take advantage of any affirmative action before the door is slam shut again. Negros had about 30 years to catch up with those who never ever experience American style slavery for 300 years and then American style racism for the last 100 years. Negro are a lost people but it ain't their fault .

I know this is going to be controversial, but I'm deeply concerned about racism in this country. There seems to be many more shootings of unarmed black men by white police in the last few months. This latest shooting in Ferguson Missouri has me wondering, are these pent-up tensions...

Why is saying #AllLivesMatter considered racist?I see this everywhere: on Twitter, on forums, and on the news. I am asking this out of pure curiosity and confusion, because I don't see anything racist about the statement/hashtag.
