I'm Caucasian and I don't think that blacks are doing any less than other races, mostly it's economical and political situations that keeps them back, even blacks living in the US and other developed countries are often being discriminated against resulting in less chances for them to be successful in business, but the stereotype of blacks and Hispanics in the US is not always the case.

thanks for your view because most others just think we are lazy and never try. Let me tell you i'm one who have tried but have not been able to succeed in every effort yet but i'm still trying and wouldn't stop until i accomplish what i want. Do you know statistically how many businesses are owned by black in the US ? why are we so discriminated against? What kind of discussions do you have(other races) in your homes about us..can you tell me..maybe if we hear the opinions of how others about us it may help us to see our weaknesses that we can't see with our own eyes and work on them. Help anyone!
