How does the government and society help the Black community deal with all of its problems? What does the Black community need to do to deal with crime, drugs, single-parent homes, unemployment, low education? I think several things need to happen: #1. Convince Blacks that onl THEY can truly solve their problems. No government or white handouts can do the job for them. #2. Blacks must make snitching on criminals, part of their culture. Crime will terrorize their community as long as "don't snitch" is a mantra of their culture. #3. Middle-class, wealthy Blacks, and their non-Black allies must pool financial and intellectual resources together to create literacy, math, and job-training programs. #4. Same as above, but to create large industries in the Black community to employ people. Factories, companies, industries, in Black communities. #5. Create tax and other financial incentives for couples to stay together and raise their families. Make raising their children, as a strong element of black society, part of their culture. Pop music & other black icons will have to play a major roll in this. Those who refuse to comply should be shunned or worse. you do the above, and in 30 years things will be better.
