You must admit though that the premise of thinking you are always the victim yet failing to put up representative numbers is a problem for any subgroup that identifies themselves as such.
Hmm, so you mean to say that African Americans (I can safety assume you are talking about Black Americans), don't put up the same test scores, income levels, employment numbers, etc. as Asian people and yet continue to complain about being a victim. You feel that something is amiss about that yes? I'll just say that your ignorance of African American society is GLARINGLY obvious. You are making statements from a complete outsider's perspective. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, but you fail to realize many important aspects as to why you don't see these "representative numbers" (at least not here in America).
Well, first of all, a vast majority of the problems stem from the society black children are raised in. This has a direct correlation to the income level of the childrens parents. Their parents cannot afford to live in the afluent neighborhoods that many Caucasian and Asian families riside in. In lower income societies, there tends to be more crime, lower funded education, and far fewer opportunities for increasing one's wealth.
"They [asians] are becoming the master race due to education. ( which is why i date them)Poor,rich, middle class, language rich or poor, they are doing the time and risking the loan money. UnSurprisingly they are not represented as frequently in prison."
That statement is atrocious first and foremost. Black people, more specifically black men, are inducted into criminal activities far earlier than most other ethnicity (save for Mexican Americans.. a different topic completely). This is once again due to where they are raised and the opportunities that society has to offer. So what you may want to say at this point is "Well there are many people that start from nothing and work towards having it all." I'll be the first to tell you that black parents want nothing more than their children to succeed. But when you are raised in a society that offers little to accomplish, it is VERY easy to fall into the trap of using crime as a means to an end. And THAT is why you see many more black men in prison than other ethnicities.
Saying that one should go out and fight the odds and make something of themselves is easier said than done. Believe me there are plenty of Black people truly making strides in this world. But for the vast majority, they live in an indifferent and unforgiving society. America still views Black society with a slight air of negativity and a more or less condescending attitude.
So I guess I should end this by saying that what I have just relayed to you is COMPLETELY of my own opinion based on what I've seen and experienced.
