Because Prez, if you suggest culture change, automatically out comes the "you're racist!" card. Want to know the reason blacks have such a hard time being productive? It's simple, the majority have no sense of a family unit or a structured environment, women popping out kids with multiple fathers, often no father figures, drug abuse, etc.

Your making the uncomfortable mistake of equating "poor" with "black". I lived in a depressed area in cetral Pennsylvania where 46% of people living there were on public assistance of some kind. And every last one of them was white - virtually the entire community of some 12000 people was white. Poverty knows no race. It would be folly to pretend that poverty doesn't affect a large portion of the African American community, but it is not the black culture in my opinion that leads to poverty; otherwise 100% of blacks would be poor. Poverty is a culture unto itself, wherein the attitude is defeatist acceptance that there is no way out and personal dignity is slowly stripped away.

"Prez, I get called racist every time I say that, to fix poverty, we need to fix black people!"

Yes, that's racist.
Black people aren't even the majority of poor people, it's just that black people are... no I'm stopping this. Fuck this conversation. This is another rabbit hole. I don't wan to discuss how racist it is to think that the problem is the people and not the society (what, is it a genetic thing?) I want to discuss taxation.
