Black-Americans have been systematically converted into the "shudras" of America. Success/ambition/work-ethic/et c are individual-level-dependent only in an ideal world. For the most part, it is built over generations. Exceptions to this rule exist, again, at the individual level. If we're talking about a whole community, it's generally gradual.
If you look into Black-American history, there were several sincere efforts in the post-slavery era to build a successful industrious black community, similar to other successful minorities such as Jews, Asians, etc. But the savagery with which white-Americans of the past would strike down successful upwardly-mobile black communities probably had a more serious impact on the black psyche and belief in the US as being the land of opportunity as advertised. It's gotten to the point that today, as Malcontent is saying, white people are avidly sincere about helping uplift black people but black America doesn't trust them and the damage is so severe that these open handouts are too little too late.
Too little too late? Black people can steal scholarships away from white people even when they have much lower SAT scores. The most sought after person for good colleges are black people with at least minimally acceptable SAT scores. And tey even o out an look for these people but they cant find enough because the AA community still puts no real value in education and you are teased and called white if you do well in school. Such a tragedy, but there's little that white people can do about an attitude like this. Fire chiefs, police officers....you name it. The unfair special advantage list goes on and on in almost every type of job or industry.

Let's suppose that white people gave poor black communities a ton of money. I think they would only misspend it, but even if they didn't, what happens next is when everyone suddenly has money in the hood, they suddenly have much more that they can steal from each other, and then there's more fighting and killing. What do you think already happens with drug dealers who have all sorts of money? Money isn't suddenly going to transform attitudes like this where ignorance, lack of character and a negative attitude is the only thing they have been taught. White people have no idea what to do short of wasting their money. It has to start with the parents. They need to raise their kids to value education rather than telling them that's a white thing. The kid who really tries needs to not be teased and bullied out of envy. And the parents need to grab their ignorant bully kids by the scruff of the neck and slap them around. But sadly, the parents are often just as ignorant or even more ignorant than their kids. That's usually where their kids learn these ignorant ideas from. So unfortunately, this may never get solved for quite some time, if ever. Hopefully, seeing a great example like Obama being black, intelligent, very well spoken and in the most powerful position on earth might start to help a lot. Sorry, but they need to know that ghetto language need not apply.

Young blk girls are the ones bringing blk children into the world if the majority culture continually tells them thru the media that they're worthless...

Most are fatherless anyway so they'll lay up with the first man who gives them attention...then the cycle repeats itself....

Blacks are patriotic Americans, love their cities, states, country...

So instead of trying to break blk women down where young blk women have such low morale....

They should be able to look at positive media images of themselves just like white, latina, Asian, Indian girls/women.

The media does absolutely no such thing. In fact, if anything, the media has improperly glorified ghetto behavior, which encourages black people to stick with it and glorify it themselves. The media is far too afraid of being looked at as politically incorrect. So the problem is the exact opposite of what you think. Basically, for the most part, black people haven't said that they don't need the ghetto behavior anymore, which was created by black people because of socio economic disadvantages. Instead of dumping it now that they can become more educated and make more money, they not only keep it, they glorify it. And then, the media helps make this ignorant behavior popular. So instead of stepping up and leaving this behavior behind, they glorify at and now they are dragging white kids down with them rather than stepping up. And impressionable white kids buy all of this hook line and sinker because of the media and because all they want to do is to be rebellious and different than their parents, as a lot of kids want to do when they are young and foolish.

If MLK were alive, he would wonder how such a good idea can go so radically wrong like this. If he believed in treating people by their character, not the color of their skin, he himself would be treating many black people with the disrespect they rightfully deserve.

Big cities like Detroit, NYC, and even Chicago are filled with super rich blacks that are not entertainers which we never hear about. It seems like the media is trying to convince us that the only rich blacks are in Atlanta.

Trust me if MLK were still alive today then he would not be as glorified as he is since he lost his life so early. And he probably would have dumped Coretta for a WW alienating BW.

You know what's ironic? white people are almost forced to live with black people. They can't control who moves in and they are often forced to live next to people that they would clearly prefer not to live next to. It was shoved down their throats by well meaning intellectuals who think they know more than everybody else and that they should socially "engineer" things, which we now have discovered, is usually a bad idea that's prone to failure. You can't socially engineer through false invented means, what people think about others. They aren't going to listen to the clearly invented dressed up things they are told they should think, they are going to observe what is right in front of them, which still isn't very good.

So the white people who spoke up were portrayed as villains by the white media themselves who are part of the invented, false social engineering team, rather than fairly being portrayed as people concerned about their neighborhood. so let's look at what happens when the shoe is on the other foot. The Hispanics started to move into black neighborhoods and the first thing black people did was scream about it and ask why they have no choice about who and what their neighborhood is. So now, you would think they would start to realize what a thorn in the side they were when they were forced upon white neighborhoods, but instead, here comes the selective memory that allows them to not even think about this. Didn't you hear? Poor people are allowed to have skewed and selective memories rather than complete fair one. Why? Because they are poor. Make sense? Of course not, it's utter nonsense, and all condoned by the well meaning but naive social engineering team.

Black people feel the same frustration as white people when they see hispanics refuse to learn the English language and instead try to make Spanish a second language so that whites and blacks will need to learn Spanish now, rather than hispanics learning English. But I hope they realize that they themselves refuse to learn the English language. Even though their speech might sound a little bit like English, I don't think it is. And this is where the idea of teaching Ebonics as a second language came into play. Actually, it wasn't even proposed as a second language for black people, it was proposed as a FIRST language for black people. So why would black people tell others that they themselves just can't learn the English language properly and therefore need Ebonics? That's what it tells everybody, and Jesse Jackson said this very same thing when he found out about this initiative and strongly protested against it. He was spot on.

So hispanics have definitely served at least one important role. They showed black people the mirror

Yes it is and that is why we must start our own media to show the world what we are all about. Bravo has a new show called Married to medicine which was kind of embarrassing to me. Half the black women sounded like hood rats though they were both educated.

I'm not going to read all of those links. Too long. You're just getting emotional and throwing up on me with anything and everything you can think of. But let me ask you, do any of these links refer to things that are going on right now or within the last 10 years?? All I see is the false and politically correct media afraid to say any truth that might offend people. So, if we can discuss what is going on now, rather than the past, we can have a much more constructive and specific discussion.

As far as black children being sent to white homes, they are sent to affluent, responsible black parents first, as this is the preference. You seem to forget that black people work for these organizations as well. But they cant find enough black parents to meet the standards of a responsible parent that can care for the child the right way, so as a secondary option they send them to white families.

You say they can find enough, but you don't substantiate that claim with any verifiable, credible figures, you are just making up whatever you need the truth to be.

Are you suggesting, for example, that a crack baby with a crack addicted mother and no present father, should remain with the mother? Why would a truly caring mother put her own hurt feelings and pride above the welfare of their child?

Does the mother demand the right to pass on the ignorance and sorry state she has, that caused her crack addiction in the first place, to the child? Is that what you are suggesting?
