Will there be a MORE WIDENING, even PERMANENT chasm between educated, affluent Blacks who have
even more unprecedented educational, housing, & career opportunities & successes & less educated, poor Blacks who feel that they are racially discriminated against, having lesser/no educational, housing, & job opportunities? Do you believe that poorer Blacks are using the issue of racism as a subterfuge for negative behaviors caused by their immediate environment in addition to their negative attitude towards achievement?
I think some are. Not all, but many blacks want to blame the white man for their problems. The liberals have taken this concept and ran with it. They've helped instill in blacks that white people are to blame on purpose. They enable it. I think the successful ones are the ones who won't stand for that.
There is a widening "marriage gap" between college educated and those with less than a college education.
If you have only a high school degree (or less), odds are your kids are illegitimate, more than half. For blacks, the rate is 80%.
If you have a four year degree or higher, 90% of kids are born in wedlock.
So yes, the breakdown of marriage in the lower classes does exacerbate poverty, especially blacks.
