Your editorial (July 28), "U.S. Wealth; Not a Class Act," is logic that completely reverses cause and effect.
The point you miss is that it is precisely the old solutions to the inequity of the black/white economic well-being that have aggravated this problem.
The old solutions called for demeaning handouts and charity for the able-bodied that robbed them of spirit and led them to believe they were inferior.
If you tell a person that the only way he qualifies for a job is through a quota or affirmative action when it is used as a front for quotas he will begin to believe he is not equal to those who improve themselves through merit.
