    Ignorance and lack of education and empathy, lack of values and morals, victimhood mentality, and poverty.

    Exactly! They're not other human beings, they're the enemy. And that goes for both extremes. All one needs to do to witness first hand what black culture has become, is simply walk into a Chucke Cheese on a Saturday afternoon, or tune into that Hillbilly reality show, and there are your extreme examples of what's wrong with our society.

    It's not just black people you know, although African Americans and other minorities are more likely to be stricken by poverty.

    I won't deny that there are some problems in the African American community though.

    Fighting the dropout rate for African-American youth | KALW

    In 2011, about 82 percent of San Francisco’s students graduated from high school. Ten percent dropped out. Break it down by ethnic group and the numbers change in uncomfortable ways. For example, just 62.3 percent of the city’s African-American students graduated, and nearly 20 percent dropped out. The numbers for Latino students are similar. Kids need education and support, but resources are increasingly scarce. Often in these cases, in cities like San Francisco, nonprofits step in. Resources for those organizations are limited, too, but it helps to be able to show pretty much constant success.

    This year, San Francisco’s Omega Boys Club celebrates its 25th anniversary. It has spent that quarter century helping local boys and girls get out of bad neighborhoods and into different mindsets.

    The idea came to mind back in 1982, when Joe Marshall was teaching at Woodrow Wilson High School on the Southeast side of San Francisco. He thought he was pretty good at it, and by academic measures, he was. Then he realized that in a school serving low-income families, that wasn’t enough.

    “They were getting A’s in math and F’s in life – and it’s tough to get a kid an A in math at 13 and go to his funeral at 19,” says Marshall.

    Marshall said that he heard horror stories about his students.

    “Many were ending up on drugs, in jail or pregnant,” says Marshall. “The worst thing to do was have to go to a funeral of a former student who was killed in a drug or gang-related incident.”

    Marshall started to reflect on his own path. He’d grown up in St. Louis and then South Central L.A. As a young black man, he saw less than half of his African-American peers graduating from high school within four years.

    There is no value what so ever assigned to Character, humility, selflesness, integrity, intelligence or education in general.

    Its the lowest common denominator of human existence.

    Be as evil as you want, sefish as you want, stupid as you want and then expect the rest of society to provide for you because you have a entitlment mentallity.

    This kid feels zero remorse for the life of that baby. And niether do his effed-up family Who are already protesting his innocence

A young black kid is shot by a security guard months ago and it goes to the White House!!!
    I don't know what news you watch, but it's all over the news. Headline News, CNN, NBC Nightly News, etc.

    Re: Police arrest 2 teens in georgia baby's killing

    I tell you, I am getting pretty tired of hearing people blame violence on poverty. I was extremely poor when I grew up. Severe poverty my entire childhood. I grew up normally. I didn't use the fact that I didn't have clothes or cable or a phone to go out and blow away a baby. People need to take responsibility for the fact that they are just greedy, and nothing more. People in the projects have their basic needs covered. They have food, water, electricity and a roof over their head. Is that not enough? Well, I'm sorry. Get off your ass and get a job like most people who have more.

    I don't think of it like that. I think of it like victim-hood mentality is pervasive in the African American culture, in large part due to slavery. Although that was a LONG time ago, African Americans DO have to put up with bigotry and racism at times (although that is less of a problem today and becoming less and less of a problem all the time as we are educated society for the most part). This is where the "entitlement" mentality comes from IMO.

    I will not deny that perhaps African Americans and other minorities might have a MORE difficult time in life, but people like the Reverend Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson just permeate this victim mentality in a pervasive manner are NOT helping their communities at all.

    That is all true, but when you have a group of people who feel and are convinced by others who are highly respectful members of their community that they are victims and need to "fight back" stuff like this is what happens IMO, along with things like home invasions, thievery, etc.

    Hey dude, I know this. Apart from some rare examples, whenever a black family makes it out of the hood and moves to the primarily white suburbs, guess what? You see a transformation take place. They see, eventually that all those stereotypes about distrust of whites is mostly a myth. They then begin to integrate. The effect is mutually rewarding to both cultures in-that, whites begin to trust and even become friends with neighbors that they wouldn't otherwise normally associate with, and the black family begins to realize that not all whites hate them, in fact, they're mostly indifferent and like most American's, they judge not based on your color, but on your character. The reason blacks from the hood keeps perpetuating the myths is that blacks busing in to white neighborhoods to work at McDonald's or wherever, are met at the checkout terminal with skeptical white customers, and there is this uneasy truce, but both sides know each other is distrustful of the other, and nothing in the transaction makes any of it go away. In short, these brief encounters don't last long enough to have any affect on the cultural divide, and the attitudes continue. Whites bitch about the service from the black kid with the attitude, their clothing choices, they're demeanor, and blacks bitch about the fussy white folks with their attitude and demeanor. Sound familiar?

    The key to all of this is assimilation through integration, but politicians are all too comfortable keeping both sides skeptical of each other, as it benefits both constituencies politically, but not, in the end, as we see now, materially. All one needs to do is look at Canada where the black populations are about the same as in the US, however, unlike the US, Canada, even in the larger cities like T.O. do not have predominately black neighborhoods. Assimilation, for the most part has taken place, and neither culture has had time to foster stereotypes and distrust of the other because there typically isn't any large enough groups of any one particular demographic to help kindle that inevitable outcome.


    That's my take on it anyway. Plus, we all know black kids can learn just fine, we've proven that time and again. So you're right, it's more than just education. It's cultural!
