If Black families were two parent families, and they behaved like White people, they’d have the same wealth, or at least close to it. Unless you’re LeBron James, ‘playin’ baskabaow’ won’t make you well off.
Thank Johnson and his War on Poverty for the destruction of the black family and decades of democrats who have kept them shackled on the democratic plantation convincing them they cannot succeed without white liberals paving the way.
200 years under the horrific institution of slavery in America making white people wealthy and advancing not one inch themselves, yeah, quite the handicap…
A few million people of all races have pulled themselves out of poverty since then. Blacks are just as capable of it as the rest of us if they’ll just do what’s necessary.
The time for using that as an excuse is long past.
Every culture has been through the drug through the shit periods in their histories. You do your best to climb out of the hole and get on with civilized life. No other people were treated worse than the Irish, by the British. So get in line Buckwheat. And I ain’t a bigot or a racist. I see reality for what it is. Life ain’t fair; never was, never will be.
You left off one critical element, "Nobody owes you anything you haven’t earned, get off of your ass, quit whining and make something of yourself.
It only takes one generation working hard and living right to escape poverty.
My paternal grandfather’s family grew up so dirt poor they literally ate dirt, grass, and carrion at times yet every one of the nine kids finished college and six earned graduate and/or post graduate degrees.
They are given more opportunities than most. The fact that so many of them are still broke and stupid is their problem.
Our culture should also stop elevating their degenerate street behavior in music and movies.
Yeah? Is that why Nigerians are one of the fastest growing wealthy minorities in America today? Just goes to show how your fingers tips and all your Google searches you schill on the bot farm for has failed you to the point of embarrassment! Your excuse is for weak minded people who forgot how to think or know what is factual!
The Nigerians were never hooked onto the gov’t plantation for generations like the so called “African Americans” who have been here for generations.
In general immigrants have always done better than native blacks for that very reason no matter where they’ve come from or how poor they were when they arrived.
Look how quickly the Pakistanis and Indians tool over the hotel/motel business and in just a couple of generations amassed a huge amount of wealth.
This sounds like a black problem that white people shouldn’t be concerned with anymore. We are the evil enemy in all things. Let them try keeping their heads above water on their own.
Have white Americans been through 200 years of one of the most horrific hardships put upon a people in the last few hundred years. Let’s see how enterprising and productive smug white Americans (which thankfully are not all white Americans) would be having suffered the same…
Which ended almost 165 years ago roughly 8-10 generations ago.
It only takes one generation working hard, getting an education and keeping a clean criminal record to escape poverty and move into the middle class.
White Americans in 2019 aren’t responsible for slavery and Black Americans in 2019 have never been slaves.
According to a hastily made promo for Cleveland their economy is based on LaBron James.
Not even 1% of those living today ever met anyone in the US that was ever a slave.
No relevancy to Jim’s comment or my response.
I hate to break it to you slick, but there are a ton of two parent black families out there who are successful and even in the 1% bracket
they dont get press or much press because they lead boring normal lives, they are married, have successful kids for the most part, conservative by nature and doesn’t support the “democrat” plantation party
That alone disqualifies them from BET or NAACP awards or praise from the African american community.
Yeah they all changed their name to Patel, to rhyme with “hotel”!
Daniel Patrick Moynihan warned against it back then. He was a big-time Dem, but took a beating from his party and the media, and even from black leaders, for speaking the truth. See “The Moynihan Report”.
