I have always felt that the racism is secondary in America to poverty. While it may be true that racism plays a role in poverty, the poverty needs to be fixed first.

Coming from Canada, I suspected the academic requirement to be a police officer in the USA was on the low side. You are the first thinker I have come across to make this statement directly. The various Canadian police forces try to weed out those recruits who have too much of a “power trip” mentality.

I appreciate your criticisms of certain African American leaders. While I can’t verify the criticisms are valid, I will give you the benefit of the doubt for there is a feature in this culture that says if one does not make it in professional sports or the entertainment industry, one is a loser in life. Or maybe to put this in another way, racism is too easily blamed for a lack of success in life. And certain leaders can make a reasonable living saying that.

Job well done. I hope this article gets lots of traction on Medium.
