It did not happen: Having a black government did not help the poor because those in charge were lining their pockets as politicians of all colors do. For example mayor Marion Barry hire one of his concubines to teach inner city girls how to do their fingernails and gave her a juicy government contract. MArion Barry was a crack head and is still a legend among DC voters and was known as "mayor for life".

Obama won and black folks are no better. It seems Bill Clinton was more black than Obama.



How can the inner city folks be helped? I see a devastating situation with no real solution.

I think in the end this is all about FAMILY. Those folks with great families do well regardless of skin color. There is no FAMILY in the inner city.

Toya Graham the woman that beat up her son after she caught him rioting has been called "mother of the year". Really? If her son was rioting she obviously failed as a parent. Toya is an unwed mother with six kids and I suspect her kids will not get out of the hole. They will be Baltimore inner city kids destined to fail.

So what can be done?

Great kids often have a good FAMILY with great parents. How can we give a good FAMILY to the inner city kids? Forget the adults, there are goners!
Yah, she didn't beat him enough.

But, Barack HUSSEIN Obama's goal is to further divide our nation along racial lines.
That goal he has accomplished !
By being an Uncle Tom?

If you don't have anything to lose($), what difference does it make if you get a woman pregnant?

Unwed motherhood has, unfortunately, lost its negativity in society. That will have to change before the problem will ever be changed. There has to be more negative consequences that transcend poverty for the results. It's easy to determine which women are getting pregnant without the means to raise the kids on their own. It is technologically possible to determine who the father is, although it might mean putting together a database of DNA for everyone. Then a plan to punish those that repeatedly ignore the new social 'norm" has to be devised. Maybe after the second or third out-of-wedlock child is born, and the children are taken away, the mothers and fathers can be shipped off to a new Siberia that has walls, since mobility might allow people who haven't learned their lesson to come back into the same society that ostracized them in the first place. I would much rather be seeing my taxes go to raising these kids outside of the influence of the biological parents that are doomed to perpetuate the problem. If one of the biological parents can pay for the upbringing of the child, then they would both be exempt. Otherwise they both get shipped off.

This might seem like a drastic solution, but the problem is not getting better with anything else that has been attempted so far. We have to get over this political correctness that allows these societal problems to fester.

Now, I ask everyone reading this post to this point to go back and read it again, and pay attention to the fact that I make no mention of race after the first sentence. This would have to apply to every person.
Bolded part = ignoring the problem...... which again, hasn't helped. If it was truly about poor vs. wealth, then what about those poor white people in Appalachia (mentioned earlier in this thread). That area has almost no crime and some of the poorest people in the country who are white. I do agree that single motherhood does make many situations worse, but then you'd have to ask yourself, why are so many black families raised by single mothers with often no father in the picture. What makes them so much more prone to keep reproducing without consequence, often with multiple "baby daddies". To keep pretending it's an economic problem isn't solving it and won't solve it. We've been throwing money at that for decades and it's only become worse.

If they continue to have kids at the expense of society(welfare etc.) then they would have the same outcome. Why not? Why should society have to pay the freight for people thumbing their nose at society's norms?

Let me add to my solution that, it would only be applied to people that as of right now who are 10 years old or less at the time the solution would be implemented. It took a while to get to this point and it will take a while to make the necessary changes to fix it.

Average IQ's of the races vary. The source of the problem is the low average IQ in Baltimore, sad to say. Impossible problem to correct. Change the channel if it upsets you to watch.

"Whether you are a federal contractor or not, affirmative action does not mean preferences or quotas. Period."

"However, at no point, ever, is the employer permitted to use race or gender as a deciding factor in hiring an employee and must consistently hire the most qualified candidate. To hire a less-qualified person due to race or gender would violate the other federal discrimination laws."

"In closing, the law simply abhors preferences, quotas and hiring less-qualified individuals. There is no real “affirmative action” (as that term is commonly known) under the law for hiring, or promotions. Always remember -- discrimination of any form is discrimination – in favor of or against any one group"

Labor Law: Affirmative action and employers - Richmond.com: Learning Center

Do you feel foolish yet? If not you should
You seem to have missed the part where I explicitly said "and fear of court action." Virtually every corporation has "diversity" programs now which basically amount to giving blacks positions they don't deserve. Almost all of us who work in private industry have worked for what used to be called a "token." Someone else always does his or her work, and at best he/she is a harmless mascot. At worse, they actively screw things up because they don't know that they are only there to prevent a law suit.

So no, I don't feel the least bit foolish.

Affirmative action, by the way, is a hell of an advantage that many would love to have, and yes, it is a quota. It is nothing but a quota. It is conceived and implemented as a quota. There is an active cognitive dissonance going on to where we have these quota's but swear up and down that they are not quota's. Most of us do not share in that cognitive dissonance and call it like it is. Rally only those who benefit from the quota and their rich white gentry enablers cannot face the reality of it.

That (bolded text) is absolutely against the law, if you have witnessed it, why haven't you complained about it? I would have...You are never allowed to hire a lesser qualified applicant because of their race or ethnicity, I posted the laws on the matter, did you read it?

"something else" something else other than what, something other than the claim folks are making on this thread that blacks are somehow inferior to whites? Because that is in fact what a number of people in this thread are saying.

Have you lived under a rock? Study after study has shown this but it's taboo to discuss in society since it's comes off as "racist". Google it for yourself and do some reading.

I remember even hearing of a study about brain size in correlation to IQ and race. There was a slight difference in the brain sizes, Asians were the largest, white anglo saxon was second, Hispanic (latinos) was third.......... and guess what race had the smallest brain? I'll give you one hint?
