A formula for equity: Sharing the wealth and doing our part

The fact that the income of Black immigrants in the US and Canada is higher than that of US-born and Canadian-born Blacks is somewhat puzzling. Is it also because Black immigrants, such as Haitians, try harder in general to make ends meet or are less risk-averse? This would suggest that racialized groups have a responsibility to step up and grab opportunities. It’s about giving the appropriate tools to these groups to ensure their success, and not giving them directly and unconditionally resources for a decent standard of living.
