As I said, black men are 46 times more likely to face prison time than white men for the same crime. Cons have a 90% recidivism rate in the US, whereas people who lucked out, that is, we're not sentenced, only have a 10% chance at facing prison time in the future. Black youth are then raised by single mothers. They start out at the bottom of the pecking order and are placed in a ridiculously materialistic society. It's nice to say that someone can work their way to the top, but there is only so much space at the top. Most black men are facing a life smiling behind a McDs counter, or behind bars.
I was part of the bussing system and went to an all black elementary school. This was 1990 or so and the people with pagers were doctors, and my classmates. They would walk straight out of class to sell the shit that their parents put in their hands. Should I blame the parents who have strikes against their name for not changing their ways? If there were solid opportunities at a relatively comparable existence if they were to change their ways, then perhaps I would. But the US thrives on inequality, they promote it and they know full well the result. And they are happy with it. The OP should try to crack down on inequality in the US, and the inequality that the US ushers in around the world and stop acting like one race or group of people is any different from the rest.
Is censoring me or locking this thread the answer?
Yes of course I believe "the system" has never been fair to the poor. And of course I really believe the cops like to target blacks or minorities and not only treat them unfairly, they love to beat them up, taze them and get them into the system.
Yet Obama has yet to do ONE THING to change this. Maybe because Obama is really for the rich. And ive never been attacked
or threatened by a poor white person.
Here is another post to the same forum, and he is black.
WHAT A JOKE. As a former teacher, here is the real problem. The African-American community does not value an education!!! They abuse government social services while continuing their illegal activities in drugs, pimping and other things. Wealthy white liberals and other clueless ones continue to pump out ridiculous program after program, instead of making public K-12 education a commodity, and not a right, aka freebie. Stop making education mandatory, and these people may finally start paying attention in school. There is no reason for them to do any work there. There are no consequences. If they have a reason to be in school, basically motivation to stay, they will do their work and behave. For the ones that don't want to be there, let them leave and find something else to do with their lives. Some will come back, some may make their way without school, many may be lost. That's life. That's the way it should be.
No one in life appreciates anything that's free. Liberals need to understand that. Removing child labor laws will eliminate much of the ridiculous youth gang problem to boot. If these kids can work a job, WHICH THEY CAN'T DO NOW, how many will prefer to stay away from the gangs? I'm betting quite a few would. The liberals need to get real.
Maybe others can give their experiences here other than just a smart ass remark like 2 dimes, yet I doubt it.
