    Laziness, lack of work ethic, unskilled status, and a lack of education are the sources of poverty. I don't give a damn what color you are.

    Blacks just seem more prone to blame external forces, such as "the man".
    Everybody blames "the man". Why is one group's "blaming the man" valid, while another's is not or seen as a "detrimental excuse"?

    This forum is fill to the brim with people "blaming the man" for their lot in life.

    Oh, no, no, no... I am not proposing to stagnate! Who could do such a thing?

    I propose an explanation as to why the media and the education system is "dumbing down" Americans. I have heard complaints about it and thus propose the explanation that the purpose to "dumb down" may be equalization of intelligences.

    How convenient.

    How is a difference in "the man" relevant?

    Re: The Source of Black Poverty

    I also think racism has a lot to do with black poverty. Anti-white racism to be specific. The American left constantly forwards the idea that it is OK or even desirable to be racist against whites. The result being that many black youth have a hard time obtaining gainful employment because they have a bad attitude regarding many potential employers. Employers catch on to the hate vibe and don't want anything to do with someone who hates them. I know I've never hired a guy who was sending a hate vibe towards me beneath their painted on smile.

    Would it matter to you?

    It mattered enough for you to make the claim on my post. Now you're doubtful that your answer would matter to me.

    For future reference, keep that in mind.

    Well you blew it off out of hand in your reply, could any answer sway you? I think it does matter who they think "the Man " is. Some think the man is "whites" and some think the man is "the government". That makes a difference.

    Why (If it was possible.) would anyone want to try to equalize intelligence?

    How would this help humanity?

    Explain that to us if you can.

    Re: The Source of Black Poverty

    Soon it wont matter because all of us will be poor.
    With the extinction of the middle class on the horizon and the Right's quest to take from the poor and give to the 1%, it wont be long before all of us are clumped together at the bottom with the 1% owning it all.
    Our infrastructure will begin to fail in less than 20 years but we can't build a bridge because some billionaire needs some welfare, somewhere.
