Because tough love for the black community has proven to be a no-go and people get frustrated and give up on it. Bill Cosby was absolutely ostracized by black leaders for suggesting that black kids "pull up their pants and act like a man instead of like a punk". If you suggest anything other than "patting them on the head and handing them a check", you are branded as insensitive and a racist...end of story. At this point, people don't know how to reverse 50-60 years of the welfare-state mindset.
