    Why do people make certain choices? There is a path of experiences and circumstances OUTSIDE OF THEIR CONTROL that influences their decision-making process. I didn't choose to be born into a middle class family or be put into a private elementary school or to have supportive parents or to have the countless other experiences (some of which I probably don't even know impacted me) that enabled me to make positive choices as an adult. That is the path I'm talking about. When you break a person's position in life down to mere "choice" you ignore that path and end up living in an alternate reality.
    So... we should excuse and give handouts to folks because their parents ****ed up?

    I was born into a lower class family of which my father tried to start a business, didn't understand taxes as he was only an 8th grade graduate... got into trouble with the IRS. Began trafficking drugs in order to pay that off. My mother died when I was 9, so I was raised by a drug dealer. But hey, I turned out alright.

    When you become a teenager and start to branch out in the world, what your parents do or don't do for you doesn't mean jack ****.
    Someone can make it on their own, and like I said before.... you don't have to get rich. Just get a decent job, support a family, and be happy.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    If its not bringing anything into the debate then wtf is the point?

    Does it negate what I said?

    Do you think my message was for the rich?
    No. Common sense would tell someone such a thing.
    Thus... wtf does it matter what success a child of a rich person is handed?

    You know, this conversation might actually be more effective if people weren't looking for an out... that is... looking for a pointless mundane thing to bring up to say "GOTCHA! HAHA!" instead of staying on ****nig topic.

    Now, his and your retarded antics aside... lets get back to discussing the chance of success to those who have to earn it.

    Meanwhile, the Asians, who have one of the highest median income in the nation, just work hard, grow rich, keep their families intact and laugh at us all the way to the bank. You don't hear them bitching, but damned if they don't retire rich with a bunch of smart grand kids. The secret? Study hard, go to school, and don't spend like a drunken sailor, or your DAD beats your ass.

    If you're a grown adult working for peanuts, there's a reason, and guess what. It's not anyone elses fault. I, nor anyone else, owes you a damn thing.

    When people are debating and they say something false to make their point, they get corrected because it means their point is wrong. LOL.

    Does it negate what I said?
    LOL, yes. That's what a correction does.

    So how does this negate that experiences influence choice?

    Learn the difference between excuse and explanation, then get back to me.

    I was born into a lower class family of which my father tried to start a business, didn't understand taxes as he was only an 8th grade graduate... got into trouble with the IRS. Began trafficking drugs in order to pay that off. My mother died when I was 9, so I was raised by a drug dealer. But hey, I turned out alright.

    That's really amazing. How does this negate that experience influences choice?

    All well and good, but you are ignoring the fact that blacks are still discriminated against in 2011. Is that an excuse for them not to try to get ahead? Of course not. Does that mean that we should ignore the problem. Of course not.

    Yeah! That's it! We're all racists.

    The only thing that Libbos care about as far as black unemployment is concerned, is they hope it doesn't get too low, then there won't be any victims to defend from the big bad racists.

    True enough, but failure is--for the most part--earned the old fashion way.
