    Did you read my post. I asked what is your scientific background? How much statistics have you studied? Are you qualified to interpret scientific research?

    You may have posted some information from an article, but what I have found on here is that people post stuff, and then they really don't have the qualifications to even start to examine the data in a scientific way. They have these white supremacist tendencies that makes them start posting statistics on disease that was supposed to be about discussing black political power. But if you really start to ask them deeper, scientific questions about what they have posted, then they have nothing of value to say.

    Re: Will Changing Voter Demographics Mean Increased Political Power For Blacks?

    I think right now is about as influential as can be expected. I personally don't think it matters as long as efforts are not made to make it just a little tougher for blacks not to vote in hopes that just enough won't bother and stay home on election day. A better America should benefit everyone regardless of race.

    On the issue of voter inclusion, as laws are relaxed with respect to recreational/medicinal drug use, people who lost their right to vote because of crimes related to marijuana should have their civil rights restored. In fact, I don't recall seeing anything in the constitution that says American citizens should permanently lose their civil rights if they're ever convicted of a crime of any type. I do however support voluntarily revoking US citizenship and permanently exiling hardened criminals from America, provided a host country is willing to take them in and the victims do not object lieu of reduced prison terms. It'll save the tax-payers a ton of money, get dangers to society to voluntarily leave forever, create new economic sectors for impoverished third world countries by an influx of monetary gifts of stronger US dollar from American relatives and new tourism industries from Americans who travel to visit their exiled relatives in the third world. Ultimately we'd see a more America-friendly developing world as American culture including interest in American sports, entertainment and money is exported (see Australia). I'm saying people who do not renounce the US citizenship might have a constitutional claim to vote still even behind bars and especially after their sentences have been served.

    That all said I think the biggest game-changer in political demographics will be the Hispanic vote, not the black vote. IMHO the GOP has gone out of its way to communicate we consider Hispanics to be a problem. Because the other option is the Democrats their eventual support for the democrats will add more strength to the party for whom most black currently vote, so in a round about way I guess.

Women, black and being single mothers represent a huge voting block for the Democrat party. With the rate of out of wedlock births at 70%, it is this voting block that is growing. If you can't see that to be relative, so be it.
    The rate is 40% for whites, when I last checked. That is very high. If you want to discuss why there is a rise in out of wedlock births among all races post a thread and discuss it.

    But, to give you a chance, what is it specifically about this statistic and how it relates to political power for blacks that you want to point out? Is there a relationship between children born out of wedlock and political power? Is a white child born out of wedlock more likely to have less political power than a white child that is not? I don't know what your point is.

    I don't agree with you, while that is helpful, that will not solve this problem. The world is high tech now. For example, could you teach your child the simple algebraic technique of completing the square? Is it reasonable to expect that parents will know how to do this?

    .

    Says one whose original posting began with " SUPPOSEDLY the black population is growing at a faster rate than whites".


    Can we say "total hypocrisy" kiddies?

    the truth of the matter if we are to talk demographics is that it is not the African American segment of the population that has grown rapidly in recent years, but the Latino and Asian.

    Could I teach my child that? Yes. Is it reasonable to expect all parents to? No, but it is reasonable to expect parents to be present, work with the teachers and school system, and push for their children to excel. From what I can see, it is more a home environment problem than a school problem. All thd good schools in the world can't make up for a dysfunctional home environment.

    So because you are unable to process the information from the links I provided and have a discussion based on the merits of the argument, you're attacking me and trying to have a conversation with me just so.

    ...

    Look Midsteel. Are you capable to have a discussion based on the facts? i posted 2 sources that aren't that hard to understand. sciencedaily and a page from an NGO who works to help people with sickle cell disease and other diseases. These are both sources that are easy for everyone to understand, hence, why I didn't post info from medical papers. If they prove too hard for you, I'm sure I can dig up a wikipedia article even though I abhor using them but over there it's really for everyone to understand the basic stuff.

    If you're going to doubt what I said or question my understanding, do it based on the comments I made not in asking for me to present to you my diploma. Unless you're offering me a job, then I'll show you my diploma but I already have one and I'm quite satisfied.

    The reason I made the comments about diseases is, if you read the conversation I had, was in reply to Kal who posted something about how will races be in the future. If you wish to participate in this discussion, go and read the history of the discussion, don't drop in because I'm not going to have the same discussions over and over just for your benefit especially since I answered most questions on this issue.

    So make it easy, post the medical journals that support your hypothesis?...

    Genocide of who????...that word is often thrown around by people who aren't very bright and usually are crowing about some perceived superiority.
    Not saying that you are one of those nutbags so please let's see the scientific proof you have so that it can be discussed?

    You're another one of them aren't you. One of those people who pops in, leaves a comment tainted by the stench of underinformation and ignorance and doesn't bother to read the full of the conversation.

    If you backtrack, just a bit, it literally takes you 10s, you will find this post, which I make over and over again because it's a good post with sources and information that completely reinforces what I say.

    Info - What is sickle cell disease?

    Sickle cell disease is extremely common in Africa and generally speaking people of african descend carry it more so than any other racial group and mixed race babies between any race and an african-descent parent are incredibly likely to get it since again, it's an inherited blood disease, not something you gain, but something you're born with.

    And there are a host of other diseases that are more prevalent in every racial group. Whites. Asians. etc. A child of a mixed race breed is likely (not 100% but likely, as in, odds aren't in his favor) to inherit to worst genetic or other disorders from both worlds. So that's why if we'll all be mixed race, we'll all be succeptible to all the genetic disorders known to man. And that is how species go extinct.


    --------
    Mixed breed dogs isn't the same as humans. Purebreeds are bread for a specific purpose. Like those dogs that are good at the races. Mix them with another breed and you dumb down their prowess to be that good at the racing thing which is what they're bred to do. You may be making them better in order stuff but that's not what they're there for. They're there to race. It's why it doesn't apply to humans.
    And if you go to that comment and see where that comment is from you can see why i talked about dogs there. Click on that little blue >> after my name in the comment to take u back to the comment original position and then backtrack and follow the conversation. I'm not going to repeat everything I say just for your benefit. Either wallow in ignorance or read and become enlightened. If your next reply to me is not well informed and based on the merits of the argument I posted and to counter the sources I posted, I'm not going to engage in the discussion further. You're #4 so far in this topic who are complete luddites.
