It's not the trauma. It's the systematic deprivation of wealth over generations. Look up "redlining."
The highest value asset most families have is their home. Redlining effectively wiped out massive amounts of wealth for black families, and that's just counting those that could afford it. For most families, the largest proceeds from a parent/grandparent's estate are from the sale of the deceased's home. Wiping out the value of black people's real estate starting in the 40's is just one example of white society purposely crippling black American's ability to accumulate wealth.
To put it in simple terms; If your grandfather had inherited enough money through his own parent/grandfather's passing, through the sale of the parent/grandparent's largest asset (their home), to buy a reliable used car back in his late teens/early twenties through inheritance, he would have had much better job prospects. This ripples throughout generations.
White Americans literally burned down Black Wall Street
because they saw black people amassing wealth and becoming equal in what everyone pretends is a meritocratic system. Of course I don't expect you, a person who has "problems" with antifa, to understand any of this because this would be counter to whatever fantastical reality you have created for yourself in which crime is just a hobby or a cranial predilection for some races.
So yes, there are lots of factors in play. The systematic destruction of black wealth is one of them, and it is more complex than just transactional actions in the market. It is a systematic expression of the inferior mental complex of the degenerate white race. White people will never forgive blacks for what the white people did to them, and the reactionary mindset will continue to push this because reactionary ideology causes its adherents to choose the following things in the following order:
-Systematic oppression and/or genocide of people they have victimized
-Introspection and self-reflection
