Members of minority groups that blame their frustrations on racism are deluded and unthinking. There is no evidence to support the view that racism and discrimination keeps people down. In fact, throughout history, people who have experienced the most profound discrimination have often been more successful than their persecutors. The explanation for poor performance among minority group members is not to be found in discrimination / racism.
