Poverty – is white supremacy to blame?

To The Editor:

Thanks. America’s minority poor continue to blame their poverty on others. The latest nonsense insists that ‘White Supremacy,’ a belief that non-white groups are seen as inherently inferior, is holding minorities back. But successful white men aren’t very ‘Superior’; what they’ve been able to achieve has been by way of Bourgeois Values, defined as follows: (1) idleness is bad (2) no children before marriage (3) work hard (4) avoid substance abuse and crime (5) practice self-control and delayed gratification. If U.S. minorities lived by these values, there would be no further talk of ‘White Supremacy.’ Rather, Brown/Black men would be ‘Supreme.’
