What are the five biggest problems facing black Americans? Where do things like racism and police brutality rank? What about the absence of black fathers? Taleeb Starkes, author of Amazon #1 bestseller “Black Lies Matter,” lists the five. They may surprise you.

  1. Unquestioning allegiance to so-called progressive policies
  2. Proliferation of baby mamas
  3. Urban terrorism – black-on-black crime.
  4. Lack of diversity
  5. The victim mentality

And as narrator Starkes rightly points out, racism is nowhere to be found on that list. Does racism exist? Certainly. On BOTH sides. But, as Starkes points out again, “There will be no solution to the problems afflicting black America until more blacks recognize that the issues plaguing our community are ultimately self-inflicted.”
