    No it's not. It is a direct result of the "welfare state" and handouts. You keep giving people free stuff, why should they work for it? Or even try to climb out of the mess.

    Keep making excuses, and it will never change.

    PS The war on drugs is the biggest single contributor to the destruction of the black family unit and society as a whole. Young black men see drug dealers and gang banger's making easy money. Why should they go to school or work hard? They are to young to see it will end in one of two ways; In prison or death.

    I'm not making excuses...I'm just stating the facts of the situation.

    You are cutting out most of my post so you can ignore the evidence. Then replying to a snip-it of what I typed.

    Yes, you are being dishonest and making excuses for failure, period.

    I'm very sorry, but I am expressing my views. Views that disagree with yours are NOT inherently trolling & lies.

    No I'm not being insensitive, I'm displaying compassion for the relentless beating that poor dead horse is taking.
    Hey, thanks for missing the point.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You do realize that the people who actually went through most of that crap are no longer alive? Unless someone is old they didn't go through segregation or told they couldn't vote or know what real racial discrimination is.

    As for the crappy schools blame the teacher Unions. Because when bad teachers can't be fired they are shuffled into poor schools.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Segregation ended for the most part in the early 1980s.

    As much as ethnic diversity may enrich the cultural atmosphere of a college or university, race should NEVER take precedence over talent or socioeconomic advantage in admissions criteria.

    Would anyone serious argue that it is not wholly unjust for a welfare class white student, with grades and SATs on par with that of an upper middle class black student, to be passed over in favor of admitting the black student because of his race?
