There are a lot more factors going on than "Black people just suckz lol!"
    All American ethnic groups have had to deal with those changes, racism or no. Pretty much all of them have done so more successfully than African Americans since the 1970s.

    I'm not saying that this is the case because African Americans are in any sense "inferior." However, they would certainly appear to widely embrace some cultural practices and beliefs which are counter-productive to the goal of moving the African American community forward on an economic and social basis.

    They were making gains at a far greater rate than they are today.

    Those gains have largely stalled now, and have been stalled for some time. Given the fact that basically everything else is better for African Americans than it was in the past, something else must be at play.

    I'll tell you what, my 2 girlfriends who had babies intentionally without being married, are both better mothers than some of my friends who have husbands. And their kids? Great young people.

    Not having a father in your life doesn't mean you're doomed.

    Glad to see you've found a meaningful way to spend your days - I'm sure those who rant on street corners would appreciate your special brand of engagement - good luck with that.

    Then explain how that relates to CJ's claim that black people are electing the wrong people to send to DC?

    Or did you just jump into the middle of something without realizing the context which would have clued you in to the facetiousness of what was said?

    Lets set the ground rules, you are arguing that racism ABSOLUTELY does not exist in the US.

    You tell what is your definition of racism.

    If what many say is true, the crack epidemic was caused by the CIA.

    Well since it appears that you appreciate it just as much as they do, maybe someday I can arrange a meetup for you

    In most cases, it is. If 50% of married couples can't even stay together these days, the odds of some "live in" boyfriend sticking around for the longhaul are basically nil.

    All I see you saying is that "it must be true"

    But, in case you didn't notice, you just pointed out that the converse of what I said is also true (ie "being born to a wed mother does not mean the child has a father in their life") The fact that the father was wed to mother at the time the child was born says nothing about whether or not the father is involved in the child's life.

    Perhaps spending time with ranting street people has caused their delusion to rub off on you. There's absolutely nothing in my comments here or anywhere else that would indicate I appreciate anything you post.
