Getting everyone a college education worked out well. Now you have people with 4 year degrees working at Target, while paying off tens of thousands of dollars in student loans. What we really need is for everyone to get a PhD, so they can work at Target while paying off hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans.
When they all have state-funded PhD's will we stop profiling black men in the street and shuffling them off to prison.
For 99.9% of people I'll stick with the once trailer trash, always trailer trash thing. Black population is there in higher proportion because firstly there are people who stereotype and stack the deck against them, and secondly because there were 100s of years of selection for people who could survive our wonderful slave institution. Those traits don't help in modern society.
Educate people, help people, feed them, whatever poison you prefer. You'll still end up with a percentage of the population in the same boat. You can't make someone less fit for society any better, you can only hope to pick a few diamonds out of the rough.
Was that controversial enough? If not I can go back and sprinkle more in.
