    Of course there was discrimination against the Irish, for example, and that is an admission of bias against Blacks.

    I apply it to everyone. If we summarily executed absolutely everyone, rich or poor, black or white, young or old, who is convicted of dealing in any illicit substance, you'd stop the flow of drugs immediately. No exceptions, kill 'em all.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Meaning, you can't do it, as expected. Typical liberal.

    Gee - if they have any problems, do you think maybe it might have something to do with the people they keep sending to the party in Washington DC?
    Yes, it's the black people who keep deciding to elect the wrong people. If only they did a better job of voting, all their problems would be solved.

    Glad to see you agree.

    Most of them don't vote, which certainly is a contributing factor. You can't elect the "right" people if you don't bother to try.

    Yes, actually, it does. I have witnessed it myself, as I grew up in a solid middle class family, but I hung around with the poor kids. It is one aspect of the cycle of poverty that I have pointed out to people over the years, in all communities. Poor people, in general, treat their own like they are getting too 'high brow' if they try to improve themselves. It is very discouraging for a teen to experience that sort of emotional beat down. I was lucky, and was surrounded by a different kind of family (though far from perfect, for sure). I appreciate that fact almost every day.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Mitt Romney would have fixed racism. Thanks, Obama.

    Am I reading you wrong or did you just say that black people were doing fine before 1950?
