This interesting article should be required reading for everyone that thinks minorities are stuck in poverty due to social injustice. They are actually being held in poverty by a mindset being drilled into them by self-proclaimed “civil rights leaders” that insists they need ongoing assistance from government in order to succeed.

And this is easily provable by decades of data. Wake up, politicians. And wake up, voters. -Jeff
