I think this quote of yours is where I will focus my response, Michael Kent.

The problem is rooted in inner-city thug culture, which is largely (though nto entirely) black phenomenon. This is the culture that says that anyone who works to succeed in school and lift themselves out of poverty in the ways countless numbers of Americans have “isn’t black enough”, a traitor to their race. This is the culture that glorifies money and violence and misogyny and racism and criminality. This is the culture that considers a prison term a rite of passage.

White people cannot fix this culture. Only black people can.
