Do Blacks Need More Help to Succeed at Life?


So this morning I’m watching TV and I see a black woman lamenting that black financial consultants at Morgan Stanley were not given enough help and mentoring to succeed in the firm.

Isn’t that amazing? College-educated. Hired into a traditionally white male occupation. In a formerly white male company. But it is not enough.

Black financial consultants need more help in order to be successful.

Really? Are we going to have the argument that equal opportunity is not enough and that, for some unknown reason, blacks must have more help to enjoy equal outcomes?

Sheesh. In competition there are winners and losers. Perhaps she lost because people gave up on her. Perhaps her skill set is not good enough to be top tier. Even white people competing with white people lose. Join the club of hundreds of thousands of white people who fail to make top tier. It happens every day.

Now I see NetFlix is shifting $100 million to black-owned banks to support black communities.

And billionaire Robert Smith proposes all big companies donate 2% of their annual profits to black-owned businesses. “Dear Mr. Smith, perhaps black-owned businesses should make money the old-fashioned way….”

Native Americans in the US must be pissed at the largesse that is handed out to blacks in America. I’m wondering if they should protest and seek equal outcomes for Native Americans in the same manner as Black Americans have received. Native Americans were kicked off their lands and subjugated for more years than black Americans. But who is getting all the attention?

Is this madness ever going to end?
