Have Black Americans become their own worst enemy?

Asked by: JonathanDJ
  • I agree with this

    Society, especially the black portion, focuses around past racism and assumes that they are still the victim of intense bigotry. This causes paranoia, inferiority complexes, laziness, etc. Due to the past, people are very careful not to look down upon negroes. I think that the black people who are poor criminals tend to produce children that become the same, because they are uneducated morally and scholastically.

  • All this nonsense started under that racist Wilson

    He started the whole credit system (materialistic) to keep blacks under a system of materialism. It's a system that has destroyed the black community to its core. Credit card debt is a big problem in many black neighborhoods. Back before the credit system, all races were responsible with money. The credit system has created many ghettos towards blacks. And I don't single them out. The food stamp program was done to keep Hispanics and other immigrant groups dumb and dependent.

  • Aggressive Rights Groups.

    People like Martin Luther sought equally for all people peacefully. Black rights groups today are far from peaceful. Groups like the NAACP are aggressive, seeking supremacy above equally. The group will even sue people for using Free Speech because it's "offensive to black people."

    Groups like them have no regards for the rights of any other race, especially white people. The problem is that black people blindly stick by these groups religiously, allowing the group's evils to define Black people. The aggressive disregard for other race's rights, and the excessive over-sensitive nature their groups and many of them have adopted has set up Black Relations back almost a century.

  • Blacks ARE Their Own Worst Enemy!

    This is my own take of the partial reasoning of blacks as their own worst enemy. From the things I've observed AND reseached, is because of blacks have ALWAYS hated, despised, and even were jealous of other blacks in Africa BEFORE slavery. So after blacks were relocated to other parts of the world, they were put into segregated neighborhoods that restricted them both opportunites, and resources that other races were given, which then fueled even more anger. So since blacks cannot, and/or will not rebel against whites in anyway, shape, or form, that just adds fuel to the flames, and therefore blacks direct their amped anger and, hatred towards other blacks.

  • Excuses, blame, more excuses

    You can blame the lack of money/lack of male role models/discrimination until you're blue in the face.

    But the truth is that blacks have embraced a victim mentality from the racial hucksters (you know their names) that stand to profit from it.

    Making excuses like "poverty" and "bad schools" or blaming slavery/Jim Crow are just convenient tools to ignore the real problem: black unwillingness to change themselves for the better.

  • Black Power Is Real But Has Yet to Reach Full Potential

    Blacks have become their own worst enemy because more than asserting their own abilities for progress they waste energy trying to convince others, namely, white people, that black lives are just as valuable as white lives, that black brains are just as capable as white brains. Black people have seemingly bought into the sort of thinking which suggests that white culture and standards are things to aspire to and that they themselves are lesser than and so much work hard to prove that they are equals. The reality is that black men and women have nothing to prove to the world insofar as their value, the quality of their culture or their equality with all other humans is concerned.
    Blacks are their own worst enemy also for the fact that in spite of the constant injustices perpetrated against them, they for the most part tend to take the most passive approach at gaining justice. A perfect example is the BlackLivesMatter so-called movement. It's hashtag activsim, and passive protest. It only reaffirms that racism exists, that blacks are brutalized and at its worst comes off as a death fetish in which pictures and videos of battered and slain black men and women are plastered across the web. It, however, does nothing to change the horrible condition in which they continue to live. They march, they play dead, they forgive, such as in the case of the Charleston, S.C. Slaughter of of 9 black men and women by a white man. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing but that does not mean that people should forego exacting punishment or repercussions. If you were to ask any other group how they would respond to such incidents, they would do so vengefully and likely violently if it were evident that the written law and political process failed to provide the justice they sought. But blacks, continue on marching, playing dead and forgiving and then getting relaxed again until the next incident takes place and then says, "Look, see, racism, they did it again."
    Blacks have become their own worst enemy because it seems they never think for once to do what the great Malcolm X encouraged, "Form gunclubs." That is a start. The idea that it would do more harm than good is unfounded but the fact that blacks are targets for policemen and their lives seem worthless is not and if you're going to get killed or brutalized anyone it would seem intelligent to at least attempt to give yourself a chance.
    Black people are their own worst enemy also because they don't seem to be investing much energy into gaining financial literacy. This is not to say that blacks are the only ones who can be stupid with money but it is to say that there are not many groups in a similar position as American blacks who are so fortunate but so unlucky at the same time. When blacks arm themselves and get their money together, there is no stopping them.

  • Poverty is to blame

    Blacks are a victim of poverty. When you are poor and uneducated, you are likely to do drugs, be physically violent, go to jail, die early, and drop out of school. This trend is observed across all races at equal rates.

    If you want to end the dire straights of Blacks in America, fight poverty.

  • No. Definitely not.

    Look, the problems aren't that one race is better or worse. It's a problem of money. Black people when they were freed from slavery, or when they escaped earlier or whatever, were discriminated against. They got worse educations and houses, and for mutual protection they moved into urban communities, and the only places they could afford were the cheapest, same with almost all of them, and because of that, their schools got little funding, and even after the end of the civil rights movement, their education was terribly funded, because the community itself was poor. So because they started poor, and only could live in poor areas, they remained poor.

  • No,black americans have not become their own worst enemy.

    No,black americans have not become their own worst enemy.Black americans are simply reacting to how they have always been treated and they expect to be treated badly no matter how much they achieve.This may explain that they may seem unmotivated at times when they don't seem to be doing their best.
