This is an interesting piece dealing with important questions about race, but it is riddled with fundamental spelling and grammatical errors. Please make corrections.

You have made a fair effort to explain why Black Americans are not as well-off on average as the descendents of other groups that were subject to discrimination. The question is why more progress was not made, especially after slavery, segregation, and discrimination were made illegal.

Here are a few questions you may want to consider:

  • To explore the impact of systemic racial bias, you should examine why Blacks from Africa and Caribbean countries have immigrated to America.
  • The big rise in Black out-of- wedlock births not take place till the 1970’s. This does not square with your conjecture that modern breakdown in the nuclear family is a direct consequence of attacks on family structure during slavery.
  • How effective were the Civil Rights laws and Affirmative Action measures?
  • What about the progress being made? There is a large and growing Black Middle Class. There was a significant reduction in Black poverty and unemployment under Trump until the virus hit.
  • What has been the impact of drugs, illegal immigration and various trade deals on the Black community in America?

Final question: Your conclusion is that differences in outcomes are rooted in cultural memes, not current systemic racism, right?
