What are the five biggest problems facing black Americans?

What are the five biggest problems facing black Americans? Where do things like racism and police brutality rank? What about the absence of black fathers? Taleeb Starkes, author of Amazon #1 bestseller "Black Lies Matter", lists the five. They may surprise you. What are the five biggest issues facing blacks in America? Here’s my list. Problem 5.
