Sorry on_ne_sait_jamais. It's not a societal problem, its a cultural problem. You think that society is holding you back when in reality it is really your culture holding you back. Look to asians who migrate here with less money, no jobs, and virtually no careers. Asians have a much stronger culture deeply rooted in the value of family and education.
I will quote a fairly successful black man -- you may have heard of him. "Too many fathers are M.I.A, too many fathers are AWOL, missing from too many lives and too many homes,” Mr. Obama said, to a chorus of approving murmurs from the audience. “They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.”
In your some 450 posts, you never acknowledge that it may in fact be partially the fault of the black culture/society that they are unsuccessful or at least not as advanced. As they say in AA, acceptance of the problem is the first key to success and if you're only going to pick and choose some sources of the problems and not acknowledge all the major contributors, you'll never advance.
Society gives you plenty of breaks (AA. specific scholarships, URM status -- good lord can this be annoying, AA for jobs/college). Now seize the carp.
P.S. I used AA in three different contexts, see if you can find them all!
