As a fellow minority- I will request my brethen to stop blaming whites

I keep seeing these dairies with themes accusing whites for things called a black blogsphere vs being called afrosphere ( god what an assassin thought that diary was) or lack of one's economic situations in the US.
I'm calling my brethren to stop looking for excuses by blaming whites- for our country gives us plenty of opportunities. Rather look introspectively at our culture that permeates laziness and lack of ambition. Yes there is cultural difference in how kids are brought up and exposed to thinking in non white houses.
Look at the 3rd world nations in the world and you will see its run by the minority race. Many such nations are rich in oil and diamonds and resources ( natural). In spite of that such countries are mired in poverty and sloth and self eradication.
FACT: 99.99% of 'developed' countries are run by whites
( understand the meaning of developed vs 'under developed' status before you debate my statement).
Again, 99.99% of wealthy , developed countries are white countries. .01% being oil rich middle east countries and then to they fail in many such countries within the middle east, in spite of the oil resources, because they are caught up in religion = constitution.
Folks, this country has given minorities plenty of opportunities in the modern era and yet we do not blame failures in our cultural upbringing and thinking but rather blame the whites. We throw the " oh because I' not white I got reprimanded or given a hard time".
I may not be able to hail a cab every time in NY city but shit for sure I'm able to get a great job through great education.
But we are caught more in "Not being able to hail a cab", as our excuse/central theme of life in the US. and that's what we pass on to our next generation.
Don't get me wrong there are many valid issues to be angry about. But as we move forward with an African American President, its time to take a good look at us and our actions vs blame whites. I know that Bill Cosby and I are on the same page.
