Oblivious White

Kristof has written an excellent series on race relations in the United States 1, 2, 3 and 4. Two points.

There is a white underclass (this is also an edit0rial by Kristof) which suffers many of the same problems as the black underclass. It may also be true that someone from the white underclass has more opportunity for social mobility.

However, social mobility hasn’t changed all that much in the United States, but it really depends on a number of positive factors that aren’t available in all communities.
