To start let me clarify the title. Too many citizens of this country and media outlets continue to push the narrative that African Americans (AA) are at fault for how they live. Essentially the majority of what I hear is AA basically choose to live in crime, In poverty, In neighborhoods fueled by drugs, To be criminals, It's their fault they're poor, And the lack of upward mobility is just because of laziness. The whole "pull yourself by your bootstraps" logic. However, The simple fact is everything about that is wrong.

There is one part that at the end of the day there is some choice based solely on free will. That does not take into account the entirety of wrongs throughout the history of this country to put them in that situation. AA do not deserve the salt in the wound to be humiliated by telling them it's only their fault while this country refuses to acknowledge it's involvement in forcing AA into crime, Drugs, Poverty, And the incredible struggle to overcome it.
