    Again, a bad law is a bad law A.K.A. a contributing factor (cause) to the racial wealth gap.
    It sounds like you think blacks should just be able to up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-B-A-Start their way through life. Don't give them a level playing field, because they're gonna F up. It's a given that blacks will F up without help, right? Without freebies, they're all doomed to minimum wage and no college.

    Da hell you talking bout

    All races, most notably blacks, were better off BEFORE welfare, minimum wage and Jersey Shore. This is not about a level playing field, but good intentions. Freebies are bad. Stop helping

    [QUOTE=Gipper;1061514736]Whooooooooooooooa...wrong Friedman.

    Scratch that comment then. You see a thread about economics, you see Friedman, you skip the chase and go to the conclusion.

    Everything else I stand by though. It's still blaming everything but race when you should blame race.[/QUOTE]
    We should blame race how exactly?

    Saying that minimum wage and drugs are more of a black issue than a white issue is probably more racist than anything you were trying to defend. Congratulations on that.
    They are more of an issue in that they hurt the smaller in size black community. So you are absolutely wrong or misunderstood his point.

    We as a people don't "need" to be given anything. We as a people "need" to take responsibility for ourselves. Stop sucking of the government tit, get an education and become a contributing member of society rather than a hindrance.

    The only people who can fix or uplift the back community are blacks. The government can't do it. In fact they have failed us at every turn. They are buisy telling us we can't succeed on an equal playing field. I say frack you to that.

    The wealth gap in America is due in part to the fact that many minorities believe they are up against the wall a very young ages and carry it through their adult life. "Why try" is the motto to many who believe raises and promotions are simply not coming their way no matter their effort. If you are an adult american and not aware of this then your head is in the sand.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
