    You actually have the Chutz to question Republican positions after seeing what is going on in Baltimore?
    Baltimore has been a Democrat monopoly for decades . How have all those things you mentioned above worked out?

    Not well. The good news is, I am not a democrat.



    You see, here in america, we have the freedom of choice, though most don't recognize it as such, sorta like yourself. You only see two paths, while I see many other roads, many less traveled.


    So, yeah. I question republicrat positions because they are completely illogical, in some cases. That doesn't mean my only other option then is to side with demublicans. There's other parties, other political beliefs, yo.

    And amazingly, I managed NOT to father any children with any of my partners till AFTER I got married, years later, when I was 29.
    What many fail to note, including Top Cat, is that young men in black communities, particularly in poor black communities, look up to professional athletes as their role models for success and getting out of poverty. When looking at a list of the top 10 professional athletes with the most illegitimate children with multiple women, guess how many aren't black?

    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    And this brings us back to parenting, and the points that Gothamas rasied. Fact is, he's right.

    The entire culture that has the "black community" ensnared is the problem. It's all gotta be torn down, get a light shown onto it for exactly what it is, and abandoned.

    I remember reading a biography about Tupac, a musician who's music is still relevant today, lyrically and melodically. He was way ahead of his time. And I remember a quote from Lawrence Fishburne. He didn't like Tupac. When asked why, it went something like this..."Because he wasted his life. Put him in any given room, and he was likely THE smartest person in that room. Period. And yet he let it go to waste in order to fulfill some image." Or something like that.


    Tupac was a perfectly healthy, honest to god genius. And he's dead now. Yet Hawkings, also a genius, but anything BUT healthy, lives on.


    Why?




    Culture.

    Try again.



    A) That's really not a mark in their favor. It would simply go to show why proper parenting (which the black community lacks, at the moment) is so important.

    B) It's almost a cultural expectation at this point. There's no real "thinking" or "planning" involved. It's simply the "circle of life" for many lower income minority groups in the modern United States.

    Have sex, have a baby, get paid for it. Have sex, realize you don't want a baby (or already have more than you want), have an abortion.

    After all, most of them have basically been brought up believing that they'll never do any better than that anyway.
    It's important not to conflate "unwed" with "single."

    It is possible that some or all of her kids were indeed born when she was married (if she was married). I don't know her particular situation, but I think it's a mistake to make a knee-jerk broad assumption that all her kids were born out of wedlock.

    That being said, that is possible as well, and I have known some women who have done this myself. I knew one woman who had 6 kids (coincidence to this scenario) with 6 different men, none of which she had ever been married. And no, she was not black.

    Basically a complete overhaul of black culture itself from the ground up at this point. It's not just an issue of men being uncommitted. Women don't even really expect them to be anymore.

    There's no real incentive to prevent pregnancies out of wedlock either, as many low income minority women basically regard children (and the Welfare payments that follow) as being their meal ticket.
    Solution, cut the meal ticket. They will be forced to reform themselves if they wish to survive. Otherwise they go the way of the dodo bird.

    Probably true, yet this thread is discussing a single individual not a statistic.

    I saw that live. It was priceless because at first you weren't necessarily sure what the hell was happening, but you felt like that was a Mom giving her son what he needed.
