As a historically marginalized group, blacks are always looking for better economic opportunity. We want to have better access to jobs, and lower unemployment. Black people fondly remember the growth of the black middle class under the 1st Clinton administration, and significant drop in black unemployment (despite what Michelle Alexander says, this wasn’t due to mass incarceration. I could go on, but that’s a topic for another day.). Under Clinton, black people prospered economically, and those are economic times that we’d like to return to.
Well first let me say that a complex and enlightened society (such as ours, allegedly) allows people (especially professors) to bring up social problems without having to pose readymade solutions for a perfect alternative that fit together perfectly like machine-cut IKEA furniture. To demand that everyone who presents a highly complex multi-layered problem automatically have an easy, tweetable solution is unfair and absurd. Your demand for a solution actually has more to do with your desire to avoid the problem than your curiosity (because you’re also just itching to tell me all the reasons my solution won’t work, aren’t you?).
