    Unless you're black. Then, your lack of success is due to the fact that you didn't reach out and take success the way the Irish did years ago (though for some reason, the youth today seem unable to do the same----but that's not their fault)
    The African American community has higher drop out rates, higher crime rates, higher incarceration rates, higher illegitimacy rates, higher STD rates, higher murder rates, higher death rates, higher obesity rates, and higher abortion rates than any other group in the modern United States.

    And you wonder why they are lagging behind?

    No one is imposing these things upon them. African Americans choose to do these things of their own accord, and they pay the price for them.

    But only for young people. Older people have no problems finding jobs. All they have to do is reach out and grab one. They make it happen!!
    Older people have jobs already, and where they do not, they have all-important "work experience."

    This counts for quite a bit.

    Besides, no one is saying that young people should stop looking for jobs. I'm simply pointing out the fact that our economy happens to be a train wreck at the moment due to the after-effects of the 2008 recession.

    This is something that happened to us, not something we brought upon ourselves.

    Yes, we have already determined that the problems of black people are entirely of their own making, but the problems of young people are entirely caused by something else.

    So now you've given up on your blather about how culture and the media influence youth?

    Yeah, it's so unfair for employers to value experience. It's almost like they're deliberately oppressing young people. That never happens to black people

    Besides, no one is saying that young people should stop looking for jobs. I'm simply pointing out the fact that our economy happens to be a train wreck at the moment due to the after-effects of the 2008 recession.

    Unlike the gravy train that blacks have experience in this nations history. What's happening to blacks is entirely of their own doing. The white youth are blameless.

    Huh?
    I was referring to this statement:
    Blacks themselves. They encourage scapegoatism and "blaming whitey".................

    Black culture does great at keeping their own people down and explaining who is to blame for it.
    You categorize "blacks" as behaving (ref quote)

    This implies that all blacks behave the same way

    Yet you state that you know blacks that behave otherwise

    How can you make a blanket statement about the behavior of an entire race of people then make a statement about people from that race that don't behave that way.

    If 5 minutes of searching shows your claim of "education" is BS, then it is up to you to show any of the rest as being true.

    GL with that.

    Did you not argue in a recent thread that modern young people were actually much better behaved on average than past generations?

    What then, would you argue they have done which makes them in any way "responsible" for their current predicament?

    So now you've given up on your blather about how culture and the media influence youth?
    To the contrary, culture and media play major roles. Black culture and media are worse than most, as a matter of fact.

    If you had been paying attention at all, you would realize that this very culture is actually the primary thing about "Black America" that I have been arguing needs to change if African Americans are to get ahead.

    However, culture can ultimately only influence behavior, not dictate it. Anyone who wishes to rise above it, can.

    Yeah, it's so unfair for employers to value experience.
    Did I ever say such a thing?

    I don't believe I did.

    Actually I have a number of academic journals clearly revealing that the drugs laws were specifically made to target minorities such as blacks, Mexicans and Chinese. I would be more than happy to send them over to you.

    Just the names would suffice. I've researched academic journals plenty. I'd love to look up some information. Thanks.
