The Bell CUrve bya Challes Murray was written 20 years ago and Martin Luther King died 50 years ago. So society has had many years to adjust to the differences in IQ among races.  The magazine AEL interviewed Charles Murray in The Bell Curve' 20 years later: A Q&A with Charles Murray. Murray clearly states that people don't want to believe what is statistically true.

Here is some real datat that show that household income is in fact correlated to IQ which
confirms Murray's IQ conclusions

           Median Income by Race         IQ Distribution by Race

The household income data (left) is from Statista
Household income by Year from the US Census )and the curves of IQ (right) are from Charles Murray's book The Bell Curve. I note that the IQ curves used to be part of the Wikipedia page, but the figures have been removed presumably because of political correctness.  

Note that the IQ curves are probability distributions that show the proportion of each population that has a given IQ. They do not say that every black man is stupid  or that every white man is smart.

The general belief is still that society is oppressing the minorities. However, most of the articles I have seen just talk about the black and white differences. People hardly ever observe that the other minority, Asians, are doing extremely well. The fact that Asians are doing so well in US society
show that the US society is meritocratic, and that racism today is not as important as many people think,

I would be a lot happier if the black community would take responsibility for their actions rather than blaming others. I believe that one can only improve if one takes the position that he or she has to learn and change their behavior. For example it makes no sense to me that blacks say that black lives matter when the community kills many more blacks than the police do in trying to restrain the out-of-control violence. I'm sorry to say , but this behavior seems to also show a general lack of intelligence in the black community.

My conclusion is that not much has changed in the last 50 years and that it probably won't change much in the future given the politically correct views in society today.
