Example of denial of black agency: "blacks shouldn't be expected to be doing any better than they are."
"Blacks shouldn't be expected to have a higher high school graduation rate than they do."
"Blacks shouldn't be expected to avoid committing crimes at such a high rate."
"Because...US WHITES have acted towards them in such a way to dictate their behavior and mindset"
I'm talking about the acceptance of the "dictation" part. Removal of agency.
examples of institutional denial of agency: life long housing projects, affirmative action, life-long government financial assistance.
All of these are generalities, obviously, but it is the mindset cultured by the prevalence and acceptance of such ideas and programs that seems to deny agency.
