Re: Re: The racial divide: what needs to change?
I would agree with the notion that American's are motivated by varying degrees of greed. I do however, wonder why some demographics (read race if you must) put material to the exclusion of their fellow man. Our prisons are filled with people from a certain demographic. I do sincerely believe that their race is a coincidence. I think the reason is the spike in young parents under 19 during the mid to late 80's. A lack of wisdom would undoubtedly be passed down to the next generation. The whole "Forget you, I got to get mine's" mentality that I witness in this age group points me in this direction. This, is, also, of course, the MTV hip hop generation. So I think the racial divide is not really a racial divide, just a lack of good parenting/supervision during a certain time period. The people born during this period are now old enough to show us what they've learned.
