    To answer your title question, it ain't rocket science

    1) invest in education for all Americans
    2) provide economic opportunity for all Americans
    3) make every effort to get the most talented minorities into positions of power and influence to provide mentors, role models and generate the informal social network effects that reinforce access to power.

    And it seem pretty clear
    4) put all cops under civilian control and have a zero tolerance for brutality.  Lifetime national bans on those involved and those who provide cover.  (It wasn't popular, but we ought to look at requiring something more from cops.  Perhaps college degrees, or perhaps better community service out of uniform or something.).

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
