Bee's opinion! Equal opportunity has not arrived for all America. For centuries, America's rich, free White males purposely excluded all others groups. As time passed, other groups were provided some opportunity at the will and wave of the wand of America's rich, free White males. The wand of opportunity for Black Americans has been slow and next to none in its wave.

When America use laziness as cause for Blacks in poverty, America shows lack of knowledge of America's history. The rich free White male purchased Africans for economic reasons. The Slave industry was founded or should I say the slave industry was born, and the workers were chattel. Blacks were bought and sold to work, breeded like cattle to work, beat to submit and work more, and killed at the wave of the wand with no protection under the US laws.

Employment Opportunity for Blacks was solely at the will of the rich White male until the early 1960's. Even today poverty stats suspiciously reeks of racial discrimination. Highest rates of poverty in 2012 US, 35% Black; 34% Hispanic; 12% Asian, 9% White;  A lot of poverty is contributed to slave wages.

2010 census data show racial demographics for US is 64% White; 16% Hispanic; 12% Black; 5% Asian; 1% American Indian and Alaska Native 2% two or more races. When I hear equal opportunity is racial entitlement, I can only think the speaker feels the rich free White male had the right idea when Black males were 3/4 human and Black women and children were disposable flesh.
