Boloney. I was around in 1975 and there were plenty of blacks working and getting the same education that they are today. The point is there is no excuse why anybody cannot make it in the US today. I've yet to meet or read of a successful excuse maker. There is no such thing.
Back in the early 70's where I grew up, a landlord didn't rent to a single black woman with two children. She took him to court for discrimination and he was ordered by the court to provide free rent to the woman for one year.
Blacks were not as shut out as you think. Blacks were in the mostly white school I attended. Blacks were able to purchase homes and rent where they wanted. It's been illegal to discriminate against blacks for employment since the Civil Rights Act of 1965.
Donald Sterling paid record settlements for not renting to blacks and other minorities.Guess what year that was? 2010. Racism in housing and employment is illegal but enforcement is lax. Discrimination is still very much a part of our culture , not only for blacks but also Latinos, Asians, Jews, Gays ,Muslims etc..

Redlining
Report on Redlining (cover), 1975
Redlining is the practice of arbitrarily denying or limiting financial services to specific neighborhoods, generally because its residents are people of color or are poor. While discriminatory practices existed in the banking and insurance industries well before the 1930s, the New Deal's Home Owners' Loan Corporation (HOLC) instituted a redlining policy by developing color-coded maps of American cities that used racial criteria to categorize lending and insurance risks. New, affluent, racially homogeneous housing areas received green lines while black and poor white neighborhoods were often circumscribed by red lines denoting their undesirability. Banks and insurers soon adopted the HOLC's maps and practices to guide lending and underwriting decisions. Further, the Federal Housing Administration, created in 1934, also used the HOLC's methods to assess locations for federally insured new housing construction.
Like other forms of discrimination, redlining had pernicious and damaging effects. Without bank loans and insurance, redlined areas lacked the capital essential for investment and redevelopment. As a result, after World War II, suburban areas received preference for residential investment at the expense of poor and minority neighborhoods in cities like Chicago. The relative lack of investment in new housing, rehabilitation, and home improvement contributed significantly to the decline of older urban neighborhoods and compounded Chicago's decline in relation to its suburbs.
Redlining's negative effects remained largely unrecognized by policymakers until the mid-1960s. Banking practices were the first to receive congressional scrutiny. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 prohibited housing discrimination and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act of 1975 required the release of data on bank lending. Unsatisfied by the practical results of these laws, community activists in Chicago spearheaded further reform, leading the nation in identifying and addressing the redlining issue. In the early 1970s, the Citizens Action Program, a crossracial group of community leaders from the South Side, developed a strategy of “greenlining” by asking residents to deposit savings only in banks that pledged to reinvest funds in urban communities. Chicago organizers were also instrumental in lobbying Congress to pass the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA), which required banks to lend in areas from which they accepted deposits. The law had limited effect until the National Training and Information Center in Chicago, led by Gale Cincotta, put public pressure on Chicago banks to lend to distressed neighborhoods. Cincotta's group successfully negotiated $173 million in CRA agreements from three major downtown banks in 1984, settlements that served as models for other cities.
The extent of progress in ending redlining in the insurance industry remains an ongoing debate. In 1968, the President's National Advisory Panel on Insurance in Riot-Affected Areas found that insurance underwriting manuals explicitly instructed agents to use racial data in determining risk. While states passed laws prohibiting insurance redlining, federal legislation has never directly addressed the issue. Court cases, however, have forced change in both the banking and insurance industries. In the 1990s, prominent banks and insurance firms have settled several major lawsuits, agreeing to change their business practices to remove discriminatory policies and procedures.

Oh what excitement in your part of town.....seeing how many blacks get jacked by the po po..........
Yeah we do have our excitement here RV. It wasn't like that fifteen or more years ago. My police scanner was so quiet that I sometimes forgot to turn it off before I went to bed at night.

Thanks to the blacks moving in, I really got my moneys worth out of that old scanner I bought. I mean, there are some good things about blacks moving into your area. For one, it increases home and auto alarm sales. That stimulates the economy. Blacks increase the need for more police and Paramedics. That too creates jobs. When big things happen, the news crews from Cleveland run out here to cover the story. That keeps those people working too. Auto thefts create the need for more people to buy cars. A real job creator there. And lets' not forget all those lawyers and court personnel needed to process all the criminal cases in our area. Oh!, and I almost forgot, all the private security needed at our remaining open stores to catch shoplifters.

So you see RV, it's not like I can't appreciate all the things blacks are responsible for such as job creation for whites here in my suburb.

You're the one with the permanent stain, AnalButter, and Bil Cosby is a billionaire.
He has nothing in common with inner city kids.
AnalDiver Bill Cosby grew up in the inner city in a single parent home raised by his mother without his father so these liberal inner city kids have no excuses for failure which Bill Cosby has proven and we all know your permanent stain is found on your brain.

Bill Cosby

Cosby, the oldest of four boys, grew up in Philadelphia's Germantown neighborhood. At first, the Cosbys were able to get by, financially, but the family's money began to slip when Cosby's father, William Cosby Sr., began drinking heavily. After his father enlisted in the U.S. Navy, Cosby became like a parent to his brothers. Cosby's mother, Anna, worked cleaning houses. He and his family ended up living in the Richard Allen Homes, a low-income housing project in his neighborhood. At the age of 8, Cosby suffered a great loss when his brother James, the second oldest of the boys, died.

With money very tight for his family, Cosby started shining shoes to help out when he was 9 years old. He also later found a job at a supermarket. Despite their hardships, Cosby's mother stressed the value of education and learning. She often read to Bill and his brothers, including the works by Mark Twain. A gifted storyteller himself, Cosby learned early on that humor could be a way to make friends and to get what he wanted. Cosby excelled at making things up. As one of his teachers once noted, "William should become either a lawyer or an actor because he lies so well.''
