Black society used as pawns by those seeking to control

Editor, the Advocate:
The question today is what has caused a sizable part of the black society to lag in education, linger in poverty and exhibit diminished social mores? On the plus side, a segment of the black society has escaped poverty and overcome other social obstructions in achieving success in a wide range of professions/careers, including the election of a black president.
According to the 2015 IRS 1040 tax booklet, 65 percent of the national budget was spent on social welfare/programs. Additionally, one must consider expenditures by local and state governments. The result has been a failure in solving most poverty/racial problems and by many accounts has worsened the same. Many blacks are still mired in poverty and blame racial discrimination, an unfair justice system, lack of jobs and police brutality as the main reasons for their status quo.
So what are the real reasons black people develop a negative mindset which destroys their initiative to escape poverty and become socially pro-active?
First, providing an endless stream of welfare/benefits is counterproductive to the goal of ending poverty as core problems are not being addressed.
Secondly, there are radical racist groups, radical socialist politicians/groups, race baiters, etc., who use the black society as pawns to further their agendas, gain power and enrich themselves. This cadre of race disrupters use lies/misinformation and numerous other nefarious methods to keep racial unrest at a high level, resulting in an element of negativity in the mindset of blacks.
Lastly, what is the solution to the plight of the black society? I believe the solution must start with restoring the family structure and instilling social stability. The core ingredient to this solution is the children because if parents/others pass on their negative mindsets as a lifestyle, ending poverty will not occur. Money spent regarding these issues should be concentrated on ensuring black children receive a proper education through high school and on to college or a trade/technical school. Racial disrupters must be minimized by convincing the black society they are being used as pawns by those who exist and benefit by keeping them permanently subdued/controlled.
