I guess this wasn’t a literal thing but if so.. I know plenty white fe/males with/out degrees and they do this.No matter how much you educate a man of colour he/she will still have finger in the nose.
It’s about upbringing & hygiene ie quality of parenting which has little to nothing to do with education, race, culture, wealth and/or class (albeit this is traditionally where parentage or the responsibility of class like community fixes this).
When it comes to ethics and morality, it again is very dependent on the community and environment you brought up in. In some cases, religion and community is used to fix short comings as an ideal.. but I don’t believe it’s exclusively to such groups as I’ve seen all manner of immoral acts committed by “religious” folk.
So what’s my point?
The failures we see is due to the societal constructs of morality failing on a individual level and poor governance weakening ethics in institutions. The long and the short.. pathetic parenting is in part, to blame too.
So is race really a contributing factor? No. The problem is those in leadership positions decided to weaken governance which has run rampant. Who society fell apart is its own problem to be frank.
Personally I blame those that make exceptions.. it’s ok to break the law because others are doing so. It’s ok to ignore traffic offenses because u didn’t elect the governing party.. it’s ok to not pay eTolls because u dispute the system despite all laws and legal recourse running to conclusion.. and then before u know it, it’s ok to kill someone because “they” do wrong or are the cause of society falling apart? It’s a slippery slope!
