In fact, a great improvement in their educational status may be a net loss to democrats, as a good number of well-educated, and more intellectual blacks seem to be inclined toward voting for republicans.
    We have debated the topic of vouchers extensively previously. I am against vouchers because they will make the current problems and inequalities worse.

    I tell you what. I bet I know more about math that you will ever know. I learned math from black teachers. My mother was one of the best teachers in the state where I'm from. Schools were dying to get her to come and teach in her area. No one could touch her in her field of expertise. I don't want to hear that crap about they need white teachers. It's total BS.

And another fact, that I know is the truth because my father was in school administration. When they started integrating schools in the south, they took the good blacks teachers from the black schools and sent them to the white schools. They took the sorry white teachers from the white schools and sent them to the black schools. That is a fact. I know because both my mother and father and their friends were very, very pissed off about it.
    I imagine they don't have to make much effort to take the good black teachers and send them to white schools, many probably can not resist getting paid more to work with less challenging students in a better equipped and maintained school.

    Do you stay up at night thinking of these questions? Hope not.

    I am not aware that the black race is growing faster than any other race. But the black race does have a significant problem with 70% of births being born to single mothers. Now that is a problem. For a single mother more times than not ends up on the government dole. Once you get someone on the government dole they become addicted to free money. It's free to them through benefits but it sure as heck ain't free to the taxapayers that have to pick up the tab. The party that promises more freebies is the one that secures the vote of those receiving such benefits.

    Well times have changed, and that was the very segregated south at that time. My point was that there are good black teachers and the notion that person was putting forward that blacks need white teachers was absurd.

    I'm always asking questions. That's just the way I am. My understanding is that the black population is growing at a faster rate than the white population. Do you have some data that disputes that?

    It's people like you who are softly pro-genocide. Only you market it as a good thing. like it's a soft drink. Drink Geno Cider. It's good for you!

    Not to mention that if that happens, we're all going to be a bunch of disease-ridden runts because most people of mixed racial groups inherit the disease susceptibility of both races. Not exactly good for the species.

    Changing demographics will mean more power for blacks, hispanics and asians. How that will effect actual policy is harder to predict. As people settle into this country and/or change their level of prosperity and amount of political power their priorities and political views change.

    Like I stated earlier I have not seen any data that claims the black population is growing faster. If that is your claim, maybe you should produce the data. But I do have the data that shows that 70% of all black babies born in this country where many are not being provided for by their fathers but by their Uncle Sam.

    Why do you refuse to address the 70% birth rate to single moms? Is that because of racism too?
