There are historical factors which have caused blacks to be repressed throughout US history, whether people want to admit it or not (slavery, Jim Crow, etc) but to me, one of the most damning and little known practices is called 'redlining'. Blacks were categorically denied home/ business loans for multiple generations, real-estate companies would also steer whites and blacks to seperate neighborhoods. Not just the South either. It was California, Midwest, the Northern states, everywhere. Couple that with the 'forced bussing' in school districts creating even more 'white flight'.

^^^Agree 1000%^^^ It absolutely starts in the home! It starts with males being real fathers, women teaching thier daughters to respect themselves and not be in such a hurry to get knocked up by losers and deadbeats. The drugs and poverty almost always follow suit. The church helps but it cannot make a man from a boy, only a dad can do that. Also, the way America's public school system is set up is dispicable and disgusting. Inner city publoc schools dont have the financial resources and stable home life that suburban schools have. But once again, that ultimately falls on the people OF those neighborhoods to change for the better. The gov't can never do that for you.

Good points Hetuck. However sometimes it seems like white guys wielding deadly weapons are "talked down" to comply while black guys arent given even a chance to comply. Some cops are just biased into believing that black suspects are somehow more 'dangerous'.
