“I’m giving a presentation tomorrow on the experience of African American males growing up in America.”
“What’s the thesis?”
“Hundreds of interviews have been conducted, and we’ve found that not only do most African American males fail to acknowledge institutional racism, they mainly tend to blame themselves for their failures. They say things like they didn’t work hard enough, or made too many mistakes. They don’t understand that they weren’t afforded the same opportunities.”
