    That's not what he said...

    And how many of those social pathologies are their fault?

    First of all I never said anything about race. That was you. I had friends die from drug use including crack cocaine. Many of my childhood friends were caught up in the crack epidemic in the Detroit area. Many of them are no longer with us. And guess what, they were caucasian as if that matters. People from all walks of life have issues with drugs and crack babies come in all races.

    it's pathetic that an officer of the court goes out of his way to demonstrate ownership of such backward, racially biased views

    most are the fault of the individual or their parents. They sure aren't the fault of those who are usually taxed and tasked to pay for the errors.

    dropping out of school before gaining a diploma is almost always the fault of the person
    doing drugs is almost always the fault of the person
    getting knocked up before getting married or fathering children with women one is not married to is almost always the fault of the individual

    and if you don't engage in those three destructive activities, your chance of being impoverished is less than one in twenty

    I never said you made an overtly racist comment -- few racists do. But I stated that IMO, your comment was racist because when you said crack babies you meant black babies. That's my opinion. Reading between the lines.

    You can call foul all you want. Your snide tone was pretty revealing. Just like the Badmutha, you see Detroit as one big black ghetto. And, in your mind, it's their fault they can't read because they're lazy and shiftless...

    Here's the point, here's what you should say: It's not hard to teach a crack baby to ready because, with proper medical care, they're as capable as any child of learning to read.

    I had friends die from drug use including crack cocaine. Many of my childhood friends were caught up in the crack epidemic in the Detroit area. Many of them are no longer with us. And guess what, they were caucasian as if that matters. Drugs effect all of us and crack babies came in all races.


    Nice, you do that well...

    Please do not put words in my mouth. When I said crack babies I meant just that crack babies. Race never even entered my mind. You are the one who thought of African Americans when I used the term crack babies. Why is that hazelnut?

    So both the child (the individual) and parent are at fault??

    Well, only a complete idiot would blame a child for not learning to read...or anything. So, the innocent child grows up not learning to read, and as an adult they have children and don't push education or reading on them... is it there fault?

    They sure aren't the fault of those who are usually taxed and tasked to pay for the errors.
    --yawn... it's getting boring, T.

    dropping out of school before gaining a diploma is almost always the fault of the person
    Why is it always the fault -- in every single instance? Are you really that naive??



    doing drugs is almost always the fault of the person
    9 year old, 10 year old... 11, 12, 13... 18? All of them are guilty.

    getting knocked up before getting married or fathering children with women one is not married to is almost always the fault of the individual
    Incest, rape, statutory rape victims... all guilty as charged in the court of Turtle...

    and if you don't engage in those three destructive activities, your chance of being impoverished is less than one in twenty
    "Engage" in those behaviors. Dad's in jail, mom works two jobs... and you want every kid to dig down and find the Ayn Rand character within...

    IMO -- you are that naive...

    Re: Report: Nearly Half Of Detroiters Canít Read

    I never said I blamed the child, I blamed its parents

    and why does the left excuse destructive pathologies? is it because they need lots of people who have issues to be pawns of their party?
