It's easy for the white guy to say "it's 2013, we need to not worry about skin color!"

Because, again, he was far less likely to be born into poverty. His friends were less likely to be born into poverty. He was more likely to finish high school and get a degree.

And who is bringing up reparations? Again: strawman.

And African American's aren't capable of finishing high school? C'mon dude, skin color doesn't determine effort.

Are you ready?
This is what it looks like when I bash my head repeatedly on a keyboard because I realize I'm dealing with someone that has zero clue.

Interestingly, seems like some of the bangs hit too many keys at once for any to register.

I don't even know how to spell it out in a way you can understand. Why do you think black kids are far, far, far less likely to graduate high school. I'd love to hear you explain this one. Either it's something in society, or it's something genetic.
Of course you'll say it isn't genetic, but then why shouldn't society try to fix what's a clear failing on its part?

I absolutely love that you're saying 12 year old kids need to be personally responsible. Asshat. Seriously, you're an asshat for saying that. It's stupid libertarian utopian bullshit. Have you ever even been to an impoverished inner city school? I will buy you a plane ticket and hotel room in Paterson, NJ if you're willing to spend a week teaching an after school computer program to the kids. I guarantee it totally changes your point of view. I used to be an asshat veering towards idiotic libertarian viewpoints, too. Fuck, man, I worked my ass off for what I have.

Then I grew up and realized how goddamn privileged I was to even have the doors open that I fought my way through.

I lived in a shit hole neighborhood in VA Beach for 3 years, trust me, I've seen it all, and still believe that if anyone of those folks wanted a better life, they could make it happen.

I don't care if it's a 12 year old or a 40 year old, if you want to have success in life you have to work for it. Success doesn't give a shit what skin color you are.

I get it, its a hell of a lot harder for a black kid from a shitty neighborhood to not get caught up in all the negative influences around them, but acting like they're owed something, isn't something I agree with. Life's fucking hard, wear a god damn helmet.
