On the flip side, culturally, American Black people have a tendency to kick their kids out the house to soon, but they typical don't have the same wealth and safety nets to land on as their white counterparts. From my observations it seems that white kids get 'assistance' from their parents well into adulthood even if they are on their own.

I'd wager that the lack of assistance is typically more related to economic status than race. If you're a 5%er, you're far more likely to help adult children get launched. If you're struggling picking between groceries, the utility bill, and getting the car towed, not so much.

GeoffD, I always appreciate your perspective on topics in the economic forum. I agree that a large part of it, is due to the economic ladder rung you fall under than specifically race all together. It just so happens that black people in this country have a poverty rate 2x that of white people, and a median household income, that's almost $30k less than whites. Add in the fact that, blacks in this country have only had maybe one, going on two generations of access to a more even playing field in the economic world, it leaves you with a substantial financial education and generational wealth gap between their white counterparts even at the same wage level. Due to this, you have a larger percentage of the the black population that fall under your stated parameters.

As more blacks get a better education and opportunities at generational wealth building, then some of the poor/working class habits that stunt generational wealth building, will effect a smaller portion of the black community. It's already happening now, but the shift will take awhile to put a huge dent in the overall economic situation of the black community. Honestly I would say, the habit of kicking kids out early, is already dying down with blacks. It's just more prevalent in the black community than the white community. Also, many black parents, do often help their adult children, but overall due to lack of wealth, not to the same level as white parents are often able to do. With that said, I know cases of both black in white parents that are not financial fortunate, that have helped their adult children to their own economic detriment. That goes back to your point of economic status rather than race.

The problem came down to this:

There are real dudes out there. REAL dudes. Like dudes who are genetically inclined to be dominant and leaders. They end up at the top or the very bottom.

In organizations where they rise to the top, you get people like Trump, Putin, Bolsanero and other guys that say whatever the hell they wanna say like real Gs.

Love or hate Trump, he's a real G. Women like that, but females like Hillary who are crazy as hell will try to kill a strong man like Trump.

Look at the weak ass dudes in politics. Bernie Sanders????

Lol. He is not a man. He's never been a man.

Let me tell you about Bernie Sanders. If he wins, I make my own country and when I meet with Sanders, I'm gonna tell him to give me the keys to the US and that I'm gonna be President now.

He would just hand me the keys like the weak dude he is.

Now a female in charge. God help us. They are crazy. The worst are dominant females because unlike a dominant male who is dominant but also understands feelings and emotions, a dominant female will kill you until you are completely dead and then kill your family and your family's family.

Women are ruthless killers who hate real dudes, and promote weak ass dudes, but still choose to have sex with real dudes.

Go figure.

Anyway....most of the real dudes in the future will be behind bars. Guess the women and the women men won.
