Full Answer

Those who say ?yes,? like writer Walter M. Kimbrough of the Los Angeles Times, argue that black communities have not seen significant enough economic progress since the end of the civil rights movement. They argue that black communities face challenges other communities do not face, such as a lack of access to quality education and over-incarceration. Those who say ?no? argue that an individual?s success does not obligate him or her to a specific community. These individuals often advocate for a colorblind society based primarily on helping those in need, regardless of their ethnicity.
