    [QUOTE=Hard Truth;1062918273]The reason that conservative blacks are considered Uncle Toms or traitors by some people is that they ally themselves with the Republican party, which advocate positions that most people consider harmful to minorities and the poor, and contains many racists. Example: many libertarian-conservatives advocate for eliminating the elements of the 1964 Civil rights Act which prohibit private businesses from discriminating in employment and customer service. There is also the fact that many conservatives are self righteous tools with the "I did it, anyone can mentality" I described previously who tell poor people and minorities that they just need to try harder.[/


    When you a kid who has no job or a min wage job because they didn't finish high school because they had 3 kids that they couldn't support then yeah it's their own damn fault. When you have a kid who has good grades but is in a crappy inner city school and the govt takes away vouchers that would let him go to a better school then I agree it's not their fault. Problem is most young poor minorities fault into the first group.

    : It will be interesting to see how Obamacare fits into this. I can't see it improving the things you have pointed out in your post, although some may have insurance now where they didn't have it before. Time will tell.

    Good evening, AP. Good to see you again!

    Good evening pg. Many who have "paid" for their insurance through the exchanges (some estimates are up to 90%) previously had health insurance. For many new to enroll, the disincentives to achieve individual prosperity have just increased...

    I think that is a legitimate concern that should be addressed. Unfortunately much of what I hear from some conservatives is stereotypical claims about lazy, crack smoking welfare moms with ten children. That type of talk benefits no one except for those who feel a need to feel superior to other people so they can ignore the problems that others face.

    Maybe all would be better served if those ten children of the crack smoking mom were removed from the home rather than providing increased benefits based on the amount of children born. We began a war on poverty in the sixties and it's been lost. It might be time to try another approach...
