Mestizos in US South: Higher Employment, Income than Blacks

If white racism against blacks in 2006 explains lower black average employment and income, how are mestizo immigrants also beating blacks in these areas? Are whites only "racist" against blacks? Or do blacks simply need to get their stuff together?

Blacks simply need to get their act together.

They need to stress education, education, education.

Yes, and how about stressing not committing violence and property crimes against each other in low income neighborhoods? How many of the problems in these neighborhoods derive 100% from poor personal choices, such as the choice to not study, or the choice to burgle your neighbor's house?

Education is nothing if the parents don't stress it upon their children. When the parent acts just a bad as the child, who's the adult in the household? The test scores among black students in inner city schools are dismal at best. It has nothing to do with the child or even the teacher. It comes down to the parent and the enviroment in which that child is raise. No wonder Africans and other minority groups that come here excel far beyond blacks born here.

Many Africans have a very low opinion of "African-Americans," for this very reason.
