Do you think if black people haven’t achieved the American Dream in the last 50 years, it’s their own fault?

Yes, people from other countries have moved here and are thriving and that was without the untold billions of dollars of hand outs that the African American community receives or all the affirmative action African Americans benefit from, all guaranteed by law. What has history or slavery to do with the appallingly low rate of high school graduation in the African American community, or the ridiculously high rates of single parents, or the sky high crime rates, nothing. Slavery is the go to excuse for all the failings in the African American community and sadly as long as the Democrat party is willing to conspire with the African American community that they are perpetual victims nothing will change because there is too much money and too many votes involved in "trying" to elevate the African American community. More than 50 years ago Malcolm X said African Americans were chumps for allowing themselves to be used by the Democrat party https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BYVv4LY_KQ

Well, since there is no other race in the United States with more programs and funds purposefully directed at them than blacks. They have lower standards in schools, affirmative action, ruthless repression of racism by American society on their side, even so, they still can't cut it.
And the solution to the problem is always racism, even while other minorities continue to leave them in the dust. There is also a segment of white population brainwashed with white guilt who will continue to support them and the excuses they keep, safely from the suburbs of course.
So buckle up people, this road won't end any time soon and it isn't getting any smoother. It will always be racism, forever, because if that doesn't explain their underachieving and failing in life, only the truth does, and nobody has the penis & nut sack to acknowledge that.

To a large extent, yes. But the impact of slavery and ongoing prejudice can't be minimized
