On one hand, all communities are affected by their history. This is why black neighborhoods experience poverty and poor public education at a higher rate than white neighborhoods. So perhaps those communities need some external support to get them to a point where just giving the most qualified person the job would be an equitable playing field.
If you fix the poverty and wealth gap problem in this country you will fix the largest part of racism. Most racism in this country is essentially indirect socio-economic discrimination. If you gave single mothers money to stay home and give the appropriate attention to their kids, that would do WAYYY more for the black community than any legislation having to do with race will.
