Lol....yeah right. Funny how since there is no more cotton to be picked and shoes to be licked.....every generation is coming up with reasons not to hire blacks. For the longest the reason was because you said we are lazy.

Inferiority exists, not because of skin color, but some are inferior intellectually, maybe that is where the problem lies. The bottom line is educate yourself to whatever level you are capable of and learn to live with it.

You can call it scapegoating, race card, victim mentality, etc.....I prefer the term...TRUTH. If its a LIE....then that means the truth is inferiority.
So how about this for a ROOT of the socioeconomic inequalities. Let's take St. Louis, or Baltimore, or any other city where blacks give 90% of their loyalty to Democrats? The absolute worst socioeconomic conditions for inner city black are in fact in cities that have been run by Democrats for decades. St. Louis is the murder capital in the US currently followed closely by Baltimore. Not Chicago as one would expect. Other cities making the list are New Orleans; Kansas City, Missouri; Cleveland; Memphis, Tennessee; and Newark, New Jersey. In all but one of the cities above, they are all managed by a Democratic mayor, and some have been Democratic for OVER 50 YEARS.

I am certainly not blaming murder on the Democrats running these cities, but simply stating that management is not helping the murder rates and that perhaps a different mind-set is in order. Perhaps handouts and welfare are not working. Perhaps public education and free lunches aren't working. Perhaps affirmative action and small business loans aren't working. Perhaps if we changed some of these programs, there would be some improvement?

How are identity politics and separating blacks into their own groups of the disadvantaged doing them any justice? How about we just treat black people as people and start training them on how not to be a victim anymore? How do we teach a group of people to start thinking for themselves and teach them it's not about hope and change but about pulling up your bootstraps and living your lives?

You never get to the explanation why a greater percentage of blacks are backed into the corner than whites.

Oh....I know you say the welfare state, but you never explain why blacks were more vulnerable to the welfare state than whites. Oh....i Know you say its because people are poor.....but you never say why a greater percentage of blacks were/are poor. Oh....I know you will say because they are from single parent homes......and you will go around in a circles like a dog chasing its tail.
so, you're black and 67% of black households are single parent. Why is that? Is that a good thing or a bad thing (and by bad, I mean negatively affects the children/future)? What can we do to change it?

the "on/off switch" metaphor you're using applies to this:

You're either looking to the past and assigning fault and blame, or you're looking to the future with solutions and positive actions.

There's less black kids on welfare than white kids. Theres less white kids on welfare than latinos. It's simple statistics...
Non white does not equate to black. My wife is non white She ain’t black.

Now, since you have the white number look up the number of black children on welfare compared to the population of black children.

Let’s not be deliberately obtuse here.
