    Here I'll show you:

    African Americans in the Twentieth Century | Economic History Services

    According to the Census, ninety percent of African Americans still lived in the Southern US in 1900 -- roughly the same percentage as lived in the South in 1870. Three-quarters of black households were located in rural places. Only about one-fifth of African American household heads owned their own homes (less than half the percentage among whites). About half of black men and about thirty-five percent of black women who reported an occupation to the Census said that they worked as a farmer or a farm laborer, as opposed to about one-third of white men and about eight percent of white women. Outside of farm work, African American men and women were greatly concentrated in unskilled labor and service jobs. Most black children had not attended school in the year before the Census, and white children were much more likely to have attended. So a typical African American family at the start of the twentieth century lived and worked on a farm in the South, did not own its home, and was unlikely to have its children in school.

    ....

    By 1990 (the most recent Census for which such statistics are available at the time of this writing), the economic conditions of African Americans had changed dramatically (see Tables 1 and 2). They had become much less concentrated in the South, in rural places, and in farming jobs and had entered better blue-collar jobs and the white-collar sector. They were nearly twice as likely to own their own homes at the end of the century as in 1900, and their rates of school attendance at all ages had risen sharply.

    .....

    It is undeniable that the economic fortunes of African Americans changed dramatically during the twentieth century. African Americans moved from tremendous concentration in Southern agriculture to much greater diversity in residence and occupation. Over the period in which income can be measured, there are large increases in black incomes in both relative and absolute terms. Schooling differentials between blacks and whites fell sharply, as well. When one looks beyond the starting and ending points, though, more complex realities present themselves. The progress that we observe grew out of periods of tremendous social upheaval, particularly during the world wars. It was shaped in part by conflict between black workers and white workers, and it coincided with growing residential segregation. It was not continuous and gradual. Rather, it was punctuated by periods of rapid gain and periods of stagnation. The rapid gains are attributable to actions on the part of black workers (especially migration), broad economic forces (especially tight labor markets and narrowing of the general wage distribution), and specific antidiscrimination policy initiatives (such as the Fair Employment Practice Committee in the 1940s and Title VII and contract compliance policy in the 1960s). Finally, we should note that this century of progress ended with considerable gaps remaining between African Americans and white Americans in terms of income, unemployment, wealth, and life expectancy.
    It's fun to watch you debate history and lose. But please tell us how things were better for blacks before us big bad librulz made them poor. I dare you to. I challenge you to bring more to the table than Glenn Beck talking points and stupidity.

    here is now increasing agreement that these policies had positive effects on labor market outcomes for black workers at least through the mid-1970s. Several pieces of evidence point to this conclusion. First, the timing is right. Many indicators of employment and wage gains show marked improvement beginning in 1965, soon after the implementation of these policies. Second, job and wage gains for black workers in the 1960s were, for the first time, concentrated in the South. Enforcement of anti-discrimination policy was targeted on the South in this era. It is also worth noting that rates of black migration out of the South dropped substantially after 1965, perhaps reflecting a sense of greater opportunity there due to these policies. Finally, these gains for black workers occurred simultaneously in many industries and many places, under a variety of labor market conditions. Whatever generated these improvements had to come into effect broadly at one point in time. Federal antidiscrimination policy fits this description.

    Do you know why two white progressives and one white socialist created the NAACP? It was because they believed that black folks were too stupid to make it, without the help of white do-gooders.
    What two white progressives and one white socialist? These are the founders of the NAACP Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Archibald Grimk, Henry Moscowitz, Mary White Ovington, Oswald Garrison Villard, William English Walling (the last son of a former slave-holding family) and Florence Kelley. Will you quit making **** up? 3 white people did not create the NAACP and all this talk of black people being too stupid to make it is nothing more than one more talking point but I welcome you to substantiate it with some evidence?

    I'm guessing you've never heard of the, "too prouds", the black Americans that were too proud to take government welfare. good thing for the Liberals that their numbers were stamped out. Just think of all those votes that wouldn't be cast for the Liberal Democrats.
    Making more **** up I see. For once in your life attempt to have a debate where you actually provide proof for anything you're saying?

    Brace yourself - Obama will go down as the worst thing that has happened to the black race since slavery, simply because he will be regarded as the worst President ever....worst than Jimmy Carter

His predecessor had held his seat since 1944 and had the dubious honor of being the first person removed from his seat by Congress. His predecessor? Adam Clayton Powell Jr. The runner up to Rangel yesterday? Adam Clayton Powell IV.

    There's no doubt in my mind that had Powell won, he would have spend the next 25 years winning reelection by 40 point margins and becoming just as corrupt as his father or Rangel.
    Thanks for that, Right, as I can see now the reason. How can this problem be fixed, IYO?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Unbelievable! The amount of corruption and crime in Washington that so many people complain about and yet the voters of New York still nominate this guy. I know, I know - he's not been proven guilty of anything yet, but come on. The evidence is overwhelming and he's bound to be kicked out.
    Maybe because there's less crime and corruption in DC than in Harlem.

    The funniest bit of all this is Bill Impeached Clinton did a robocall on Rangel's behalf.

    For the life of me I don't understand the logic behind it, but love it.
