    There may be 'classes' as defined by those who need definitions, but there are no class barriers that I can see.

    One of my employees was crack baby who overcame the addiction which he inherited. He worked up to supervisor then, with my blessing moved on to a better job in a bigger company. Another was a half black man, born in Canada who was raised in suburban Seattle in fine digs, a speed boat to play with whenever he wanted it, his own basketball court. He was a good worker, but would disappear a lot, not show up for weeks...as he succumbed to his crack habit, which he blamed on growing up black in the United States.

    Oh, the first guy was half Cree....

    The point is not to in any way suggest one race is better than another, but that in all of them there are people who can and will rise above the circumstances they were born into and those who blame their circumstances on their failures, a trait of the sitting president.

    But in the end, isn't the point of America, and Canada to give those seeking to rise above the circumstances they were born into a CHANCE top do so?
    Absolutely, and dead on point with what I trying to say in this thread. But, others want to say that there's no chance. That they cannot succeed. that they are all doomed to the cycle of poverty and despair. They even post charts and graphs and give links to studies to try to prove their point. It's truly sad.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    It is well known that blacks, in general, have lower IQs than Whites and Asians.......yet they have been told for a generation that they are just as smart and can perform on the same level........when their real world experiences tell them the opposite. This leads to huge cognitive dissonance........which causes them to lash out against Whites who they perceive, deep down, to be smarter and better looking and more successful

    WIll you ever actually identify this culture you're talking about, or will continue to dodge?

    on edit: You also claimed that anyone who allowed this to happen was accepting it so I asked you what you were doing to not allow it. You dodged that question also.
    I answered your question, just not in a way that allowed you proceed in your normal manner.

    The parents should be held responsible if they were in fact negligible. Demanding that they make a public statement, however, is frankly an unreasonable request.

    I agree with you. I also see that there is a cycle of poverty and despair, and not everyone is able to find the strength or that one leg up to climb out of it, and I feel for them. Please don't consider that any excuse for this crap we just saw in Memphis.

    Stormfront drive-by. Put him on ignore.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    People that makes statements like yours, are the primary reason that those kids never get out of poverty.

    If a kid is continually told that he/she has no chance, that the system is rigged against them, that other races are keeping them down, then that kid begins to believe that there is no hope, and without hope, they give up, and when they give up... they fulfilled the prophecy that you have set for them.

    Again, I don't buy into that. The cycle can be broken. It has been broken by many of all races and ethnicities. Preaching what you are condoning is a major part of why more do not. Stop the cycle - don't perpetuate it.
    because I'm sure those kids pay close attention to statistics and discussions about economic mobility and class distinctions.

    This is the "ExCon response"

    Refuse to answer a question and declare that you have answered the question. But I'll keep asking

    Which specific culture are you referring to?
