In fact, under the long time (sometimes more than 50 years) governance of one black chief executive, federal representative and/or predominatly black assembly/council...many of these urban black areas have gotten worse.

So I'll ask again, given the remarkable level of failure of ANY politician where "solving" the problem of urban black poverty is concerned - how does the specific office of President of the United States "solve" these problems, when no other office or group of offices at any level of government has done so thus far? And beyond that, if the current President is a racist, bougie, white devil who wouldn't get more than 5% of the black vote if he literally paid people $500 each for their vote...what would be his motivation to undertake a "solution" even if that office was capable of doing so?

Obama never solved any of these problems, and I can assume he was friendlier to urban blacks than Trump, yes? So how/why is Trump now the "solution?"

Makes no sense whatsoever.
Just hand over your wallet. More green is the answer.

We've had 43 White presidents and there are still poor Whites. Why would Black poverty end after one Black president?

It's not all black culture....but it is defiantly that black culture

Culture is LEARNED and the culture of blacks in America IS NOT the culture of blacks in Africa or the culture blacks came here with. Blacks don't have their surnames from Africa, blacks don't have their religions from Africa, blacks don't have their customs from Africa, blacks don't have their diet from Africa, etc, etc. What blacks have was LEARNED and acquired from being around whites for over 300 years. You showed us your bad side (assume that is your bad side and not simply the way you are) and that is what we picked up on. I mean....we were not calling ourselves the N word in Africa. We learned to call ourselves that, unfortunately, because that is what whites were calling us.



Culture can and has been impacted by white racism.

You ask people to explain their observations....that is when there racism is clear.
What's your explanation for the difference between Europe and Africa? I know the truth is difficult to accept but it's still the truth.

Anyone that is allowed to have children that cannot afford to pay for them is a problem.
The GOP is not interested in discouraging this behavior, so they contribute heavily to the problem too.
Don't forget that many "poor" people have access to cash, just like the privileged like cash. It's easier to hide.

You mean the colonization of Africa by the Europeans?

Those that killed of most of the ruling classes that had fought out their territories?

Then, install a minority to be sub rulers under the White conquers.

When they extracted as much wealth as they could from Africa and decided to leave, you had unstable governments based mostly on minorities, with made up geographical boundaries with mixed inhabitants that usually where enemies. Not allowing their subjugated people proper schooling, good jobs during occupation... then when they left, they where mostly to themselves and had to start over again.

Then, the US and some NATO allies and the USSR tried to influence their parts of Africa for 50 years. Installing puppets after puppets, backed by their military and weapons.

When the USSR collapsed, surplus guns where dumped into Africa starting dozens of civil wars..


So... what parts do you want to talk about...
Before all this? Or after or during all of this?



Just look at India as an example... Stood for almost 25% of the World GDP for thousands of years before the British conquered it. Collapsed their economy down to sub 5% of GDP, while extracting as much wealth as they could, while MILLIONS died of hunger, disease and putting down rebellions.

They are slowly rebuilding their economies....

In 1600 Europeans had printing press, telescope, sewer systems, gun powder, complex math, circumnavigated the globe and even had a working submarine.

In 1600 Africans had.... the spear.

How do you explain that? Itís pre colonization (which btw gave more to Africa than it ever took out)

Face it, its evolution, just research it. Africans bred with less evolved species of human while others left for Europe and bred with Neanderthals. This increased intellect from Neanderthals plus the harsh conditions increased discipline and social structures. The answers are all there.

Very slowly the Africans are rebuilding their economies. When do you expect African nations to surpass the GNP of the USA and develop superior technology?

I mean, slavery ended 156 years ago, so that legacy alone cannot explain what shifted from the very family oriented black demographic to this new single mother, absentee father, children raised on the street phenomenon. What could have possibly happened in the last oh...70 years that could give us a clue as to why the all black Harlem city schools went from 2nd best in the 5 Burroughs to among the worst as of today.

What was the pox, pray tell, that fell upon the black demographic's house, such that it actually resembles a plague virus? Hmm...what could it be...?
Rap music.
