It's not as if blacks voted for their own right to vote-- that was delivered by white people arguing very hard on your behalf with other white people (policing their own).

My point is-- if you will review my lengthy post-- these black people really do believe that whites did this to them. White people can't help them. The only way reason will ever reach them is through one of their own. The same way the only people who can tell christian right how wrong they are-- other christians. Others outside the faith cannot understand and aren't qualified.

Apparently you're voting for personal responsibility. NIMBY, and not my job. So the appeals for assistance to serve those who refuse to help themselves won't be coming from yourself, correct? Your personal 'community' isn't black, it's based on those who are responsible for themselves, shunning all others?

People like you I hate with a passion, you generalize things way too much, GOD forbid a black guy throw a resume in front of you for a job, you'll probably hire him and run home to tell your family how you met a good negro today.

pathetic....
Wow, got tin foil hat?

I think it was pretty clear that she was being sarcastic. I just don't know what point she was trying to get across.

Makes me wonder if the Black community in this country will ever move forward. With the crime, drugs, poverty, etc and the culture of glorifying unemployment, gangs, drug dealers, not taking responsibility, etc I can't imagine things will ever change.

Some of the choice quotes:

Mother, 12 children leave motel for new home
One very fertile looney nutter does not represent an entire "community" as you put it.

So now you want to go back to the Civil Rights era to look past inmoral, illegal and unacceptable behavior by your own culture, while berating blacks. NO one black or white is responsible for the next person's behavior. Where was the faith base during the child molestation cases in the catholic church? Where was the policing and faith base orgs during the Oklahoma bombing? Where was the policing and faith base orgs during the recent string of child rape's and murders?

My point is-- if you will review my lengthy post-- these black people really do believe that whites did this to them. White people can't help them. The only way reason will ever reach them is through one of their own. The same way the only people who can tell christian right how wrong they are-- other christians. Others outside the faith cannot understand and aren't qualified.

It is NOT my responsibility OR beneficial to my safety to walk up to a drug dealer and say. ..."hey, you shouldn't do that....get a job"....

Since you've interpreted those questions from my response to this thread, let me say this clearly. This woman does not represent me, this woman does not represent the way I was raised. It is not my responsibility to be responsible for or hold this woman responsible for her actions. Are you responsible for the actions of a white child molester?

You would think that after her 10th child, she might have been concerned her ability to properly care for so many children, and close her legs. She obviously has mental issues. They may all be "gifts from god" but they will end up being gifted with foster parents or an orphanage.

Something goes wrong in the church, people become aware of it, pursue it and continue pursuing it to this day. They are actively policing themselves, as does the jewish community in their own tradition. There is no such thing as pre crime, so holding anyone accountable for what didn't happen yet isn't rational. Dragging up history was only for the purpose of illustrating a tradition of micro communities policing themselves. That is the difference between christians, jews, and blacks who claim the black community isn't there. They don't have family to back them up when they have hard times.

Of course she doesn't represent you, that's why I addressed you-- you're above the problem. You've allowed a presumption to take hold of this dialog. I'm pointing at a problem and asking you in terms of political policy what the appropriate help (if any) is for this element of our society. By your manner of speech I'm hearing that troubled blacks aren't your community. I'll ask again; is your definition of 'community' only those who are responsible for themselves?
