Much better to use KKK lies that stigmatize 40 million people based on what 30% of them might be doing!
The behaviors of that 30% are created by factors such as the school to prison pipeline that he conveniently ignores. Public education is a disaster on multiple fronts to the extent that more Black churches are again opening charter and private schools. Jewish people send their kids to Yeshivas, and Asians send their kids to Asian test prep schools and after school programs.

What he can't seem to understand is nobody is waiting on white people to do anything, whether "liberal" or "conservative".

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.
Ditto for Black American and Arab/North African youths in Barcelona, Spain, many of whom can't get legal status. Again it's the Black American that is worshipped here as well, in part because the Black Americans who get visas or other legal status to stay here long term are going to be affluent and educated.

People can actually walk and chew gum at the same time. Yes blacks folks can and do complain about racism as immigrants complain about xenophobia and women about sexism. Yet they can also focus on making the best lemonade out of the lemons that they have. Thanks to these actions there is less racism, xenophobia and sexism that they used to be, even with the current clown sitting in the WH.

I find it interesting that Antonio R who is a Hispanic, and I suspect an immigrant, doesn't see it fit to thank those who struggled ALL OVER THE USA, not just the South. Thanks to their efforts this country is much fairer than it used to be 60 years ago.

[quote=zyibginnieisidiotcrackamo;51649688]Obama is not black, he mixed..[/QUOTE
He calls himself black and suspect that he knows more about his life than do others.

In fact Obama might be LESS mixed than a whole number of people who don't have any recent white ancestry. His father is 100% African and we don't know for a fact that his mother is 100% European.

Black Americans in Europe are almost always professionals who can find employment there, or tourists. So they are viewed better than are the African immigrants, most who occupy low status jobs.

Those are the working ones. There are a lot of African immigrants selling merchandise or whatever in the streets, or who are otherwise undocumented or selling drugs and/or sex.

I should note African CEOs and top African government officials have homes in Europe were they send their children to school for educations, and these people are viewed and treated very differently from your average run of the mill African who can't even get legal status.

Undocumented Africans who can't get refugee status will be denied healthcare, bank accounts, utility or phone service, etc. Ditto for other undocumented immigrants from poor countries.

The most racist people often have the lowest IQs. A LOW IQ person may have extremely difficulty comprehending that a person can complain about racism while doing everything they can to move up socioeconomically. Rush Limbaugh and the like offer simple solutions to simpletons!

The amount of blame or fault that white people or outside forces are responsible for regarding the current issues of African Americans and Africans make no difference. The number is clearly more than 0% and less than 100%

Blacks and blacks alone, as a whole are the only people on the planet who can bring themselves out from these issues.

White people, not even white liberals can do it or will do it. Why? Well, look at the bad job they're doing so far. Gaps between blacks and other races are widening and statistics that measure progress are falling.

The message from other races to blacks has been very clear: Blacks are on their own.

We are strong, smart, and hard-working enough to do it. I'm more than glad that politicians are "fighting for me" but it's clear their policies hurt far more than they help and the intended result of the bureaucratic process takes far longer than getting a college degree.

So how do you convince the little poor black kid with a single mother and dysfunctional household, that he can be successful in this world despite his skin color? You must show him all the black lawyers, doctors, nurses, engineers, generals, CEOs, and the former president of the united states who have already done it.

The current state of the black community is in complete disarray, playing the blame game and refusing to better yourself won't fix it. Sadly, we're doing far more of the former and latter at the cost of hard work.

Don't take my word for it.

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.

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.
Quote:
In the introduction to his report, Moynihan said that "the gap between the Negro and most other groups in American society is widening."[6] He also said that the collapse of the nuclear family in the black lower class would preserve the gap between possibilities for Negroes and other groups and favor other ethnic groups

Moynihan concluded, "The steady expansion of welfare programs can be taken as a measure of the steady disintegration of the Negro family structure over the past generation in the United States
Quote:
The report concluded that the structure of family life in the black community constituted a 'tangle of pathology... capable of perpetuating itself without assistance from the white world,' and that 'at the heart of the deterioration of the fabric of Negro society is the deterioration of the Negro family. It is the fundamental source of the weakness of the Negro community at the present time.' Also, the report argued that the matriarchal structure of black culture weakened the ability of black men to function as authority figures. That particular notion of black familial life has become a widespread, if not dominant, paradigm for comprehending the social and economic disintegration of late 20th-century black urban life.
