    Nah, it's just what he takes from their inferences. I get the same takes, too.

    Just so you know, I don't believe any liberal/progressive would ever openly admit such a thing. It's just too ..... truthful.

    This is very poorly stated, and I charge, hugely inaccurate.

    First off, votes = power = greed. So the lust for power is certainly a huge part of why the Dems keep the blacks down.

    But with regard to the second part of your foolish statement, I will assume you meant Republican "greed" as a greed for wealth. The problem is that there is no monetary wealth benefit in a capitalist society by keeping a large segment of it poor and uneducated. Its quite the opposite effect.

    Somebody show me wrong.

It amazes me how poor white people, or rich minorities are often ignored in these types of discussions. There is a big gap between rich and poor schools but making it a race issue isnt going to solve anything.
    If a race-based culture is the problem, as so many statistics overwhelmingly show it to be, then to ignore it, as you suggest, is to continue the stupidity.

I don't know that it's racism per se, but it's not even "Separate but equal," it's separate and un-equal. You can call it any number of things, but it's an awfully big coincidence that there's a lot of minority students that get shafted in education.
    allow me to confirm that Rahm is not black, but he did work for a black president ...

    what we're talking about is institutional racism, but I've stopped trying to explain that on these threads .... on these threads it takes a cross burning or lynching to convince some posters that racism exists ...

    Yeah, I have to agree with the first part. So you've got no argument here.

    The second part, not so much. We've stopped making stuff here, and that can't all be on the government.

    stats show that the problem is culture? Wow ... ya better tell all those sociologists who have devoterd their lives to the study of race and racism and for the most part conclude that the problem is structural ...
