Well, when the blacks arrived in the Americas, they didn’t really have a choice in how they lead their lives. And after that they already had an established (and continuously reinforced, by both internal and outside forces) culture, from which it’s hard to escape. The same is true with our Gypsies and even with us Bulgarians – our culture and mentality is still recovering from the Ottoman and communist yokes. Of course, the change really has to come from within the group, but the problem of that victimhood culture is that it’s sapped most of its people of the energy to do it, so it would take time and the concerted effort of the individuals within the group to eventually make the change. You know, kinda like how a person suffering from depression would find it extremely hard to get out of it on his own.
