The government has done a TON to try to get more education to disenfranchised minorities but the problem is that oftentimes the family simply does not do their part in it.
"Provide education" is always the easy answer, but it presupposes that the government hasn't tried to do exactly that. They most certainly have and at some point, the black community has to take ownership of the fact that they have very frequently pissed those opportunities away.
You're being too impatient. Remember where this country was just two generations ago.
I think those government initiatives toward the education of minorities are working. Things are improving and will continue to do so as long as they are in place.
Things don't change over night. Let this play out, man. It IS working.
