What do you think the main cause of the current black-white economic disparity is?
a lot of reactionaries say it's patronizing to black people for the left to say black people can't become as prosperous as white people on their own. Well it's not that we don't think that black people can't "pull themselves up by their own bootstraps", it's that we realize that the government gave out a lot more bootstraps to pull themselves up by to white people (i. e. homestead and federal housing act) than black people. So for white people to say that black people should lift themselves up by their own bootstraps like they did is just pretentiousness.

*But, but, but my ancestors came here from Europe and didn't get squat from the government but they still lived the American dream.
-And there were people born into slavery who became millionaires but we're talking about the systemic problem, not why individuals don't succeed.

*But, but but Asian Americans faced discrimination but they're more successful than white people because they overcame it.
-They overcame the racist immigration quotas that only allowed the most well to do families to move here (i. e. there's a sampling bias).
