    Sure, but the rates a very different.

    Or, maybe the government can't solve all of the problems of society after all.

    I said, these are all variables that will raise and lower your likelihood of such success. So a combination of very little money but access to good education and having highly supportive parent/s can, in my mind, actually be more important than a combination of lots of money and zero emotional support. Now, let's take away emotional support, money and a good education opportunity and....well, sorry, but I wouldn't bet any money on that kid. You have to consider all the variables. You can't pin it down to just one (or even two). And just for the record, the brains god gave you (DNA) is absolutely going to be one of those variables.

    Especially the ones who voted for Obama because they decided him being President meant they wouldn't have to worry about paying for the gas or mortgages anymore.

    One of the reasons I picked Dale Evans was because she probably became pregnant at age 14 and nearly had a child out of wedlock. Guess who hired her for her motion picture debut?

    One other early star had a child out of wedlock too, she was also a white person, and she was hired by the same studios, her name escapes me now because I deleted her information from my bookmarks a while back.

    So this problem isn't only a black thing, whites are affected by it too.
    True. However, it's hard to deny that the problem has become a lot worse in recent decades, and that African Americans tend to have the most serious issues with it.



    This trend has resulted in some rather nasty economic and social consequences for the black community as a whole over the course of the last few decades.

    Perhaps she had an intimate relationship with the President, or maybe she was thinking of another Obama. Or maybe she was speaking about Smiling Joe.

    Black culture does great at keeping their own people down and explaining who is to blame for it.
    I don't see why people with powers of analysis like this can't take the extra step and reach true objectivity.

    Yeah, blacks have a culture like that, but it exists because mainstream American society spent a full century post-slavery blocking the participation of blacks (as well as Irish, Poles, Jews, Catholics, etc) from atop state government and at the grassroots with terrorist groups like the Ku Klux Klan. Human beings acquire a set of morals and habits as they respond to life challenges, values that they pass down to their children; the values blacks were taught to pass down to their children was that asserting yourself and trying to be equal got you lit on fire hanging from a tree with your dick cut off.

    Black veterans returning from service in the World Wars got that because they dared wear their uniforms coming off the boats. It sort of leaves an impression that take a few generations to go away, which was the entire point and why the Klu Klux Klan existed in the first place, to leave such an impression on blacks.

    Truth be told, relations between blacks and white could be very cordial, and even friendly; as long as the black observed the proper rituals of respect and adhered to the invisible boundaries of power, existing in the economic, political, and cultural margins of American society.

    Black culture is a creation of the Klu Klux Klan, mainstream American society at the grassroots level during the 1860-1960s, and political leaders like Jesse Helm; it was created "precisely" so blacks would be this way for generations to come.

    If you have any familiarity with Greek history, you would know the Spartans enlisted similar practices against their Helot population.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
