I also want to point out that the current state of the black community was already predicted in 1965 when folks saw the trends.

Quote:
The Negro Family: The Case For National Action (known as the Moynihan Report, 1965) was written by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, an American sociologist serving as Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Lyndon B. Johnson of the United States.

In 1976, Moynihan was elected to the first of several terms as US senator from New York and continued to support liberal programs to try to end poverty.

His report focused on the deep roots of black poverty in the United States and controversially concluded that the high rate of families headed by single mothers would greatly hinder progress of blacks toward economic and political equality.

Also thanks for mentioning the books you’re reading or planning to read. I added a few to my ‘to read’ list.
Why is that “refreshing” when that is the general narrative all along?

I think the issue is that there can be “political pimping under a new name”, which this looks like. Once the politicalization gets out of the way, then the dust will for people to just execute solutions, which will not occur until communities tap into their total self. I say that especially given that, if we get completely honest, the systems in place were not designed with said people in mind. So, you really need to tap into more than just physical/temporal aspects of life.

I also say that given that community building successes in the past, that were only to be attacked via outside communal choices and policy(aka-Urban Renewal), let alone the harm all communities to themselves. Think Rosewood FL, Tulsa OK’s Greenwood community, Pittsburgh’s Hill neighborhood, Detroit’s Black Bottom, Manhattan’s Seneca Village, Durham NC’s Hayti District, etc.

Just to reference an author/writer that has been mentioned in this thread: https://www.c-span.org/video/?430425...se-black-power

Hmmm. A well brain washed person who is trained to believe everything that the white people tell him.


Well whites tell blacks in the Americas that people in Africa live in trees and eat each other. See. negative attitudes exist on both sides iof we spend all day spewing what whites tell us.


Black African youths in Paris ghettoes exhibit all the traits that you blame (poor) black Americans of displaying. Ironically in Paris its the black American (and English speaking blacks in general) who is worshipped and the black African who is despised.

Fun fact for you.


When Trump bellowed about Africans living in mud huts and called their countries ****holes they weren't amused. So the fact that most Africans who vote in the USA do so in the same % as do black Americans shouldn't surprise you.


If the GOP is loved by white supremacists then clearly it will be hated by black Americans as well as black immigrants.

Really! His Kenyan relatives who complain that he ignores them will be surprised at this fun fact.


Obama is CLOSER to his BLACK AMERICAN IN-LAWS than he is to his father's family. His father ABANDONED him. His BLACK AMERICAN in-laws DO NOT!

The debate is not whether Rocko20 is black or not that irrelevant

it's his counter factual statements, they so bizarre it make people question is he black.

Now he's trying to prove he's black, as if that prove some of his points. The point was his position are base on stereotyping, generalization and inaccuracy.


the fact that he spews nonsense from a white supremacist site is the issue. We know that for every slave rebellion there was a silly negro complaining to massa and doing his best to ensure that the insurrection failed.

I have no problem with the fact that some blacks are clowns. Research and you will find that some were very angry when slavery ended and their massas told them to go. Oh how they howled and begged massa to keep them, even promising to work for free (remain slaves that is).


If a black man regurgitates rants that I can find on a white supremacist site it makes most truly wonder where his intense rage and self hatred comes from. Blaming blacks that white massa doesn't like him?

Oh yes. Straight from the white supremacist sites. When shown that a substantial black middle class has emerged and that more than 70% of blacks have NEVER been on welfare they go straight to the out of wedlock dogma. Funny that this doesn't seem to be holding back many blacks, Yes the 70% who have NEVER been on welfare! The 70% who are leading NORMAL lives.


Much better to use KKK lies that stigmatize 40 million people based on what 30% of them might be doing!

Despite the white supremacists and assorted racists this is how MOST BLACK PEOPLE THINK. They are NOT waiting for a gift from anyone! Get to know a few blacks and stop believing what FOX TV tells you.
