    50 years ago Martin Luther King shared his dream of a nation where black and whites would seamlessly interweave in making a larger and better American fabric; where skin color was irrelevant.

    That is perfectly in line with the American ideal: come here with an idea, with a talent, with a skill, with a mission and nurture it and tend to it until it blossoms.

    Instead we heard yesterday blacks need more government programs and support

    Was MLK's vision the path that's been followed, or is that the road not taken?

    Depends on how you look at it. Government dependancy certainly helps blacks stay poor and at the bottom of the social latter so to speak. I guess if you're a racist Democrat that's a good thing.

    Seems to be working fine for those blacks who profit off the race baiting business. They've got a whole bunch of extremely low information idiots to bamboozle while they work the lucrative system.

    The problem with a government program is two fold: First, it tends to hand a man a fish instead of teaching him how to catch one. Second, it also tends to lead to dependency,although the design of the program had the best of intentions in my opinion.

    The progressives/Democrats have enslaved the blacks community in generational poverty... 75% illegitimacy rates, 50% graduation rates, black high schoolers comprehend, compute and read at the same level as 7th grade whites..

    Yeah, well done. But hey, let's talk about Trayvon Martin and Oklahoma rodeo clowns.

    Racebaiting 101 --

    actually this thread is starting to cross into the type of propaganda used by the nazi's against the jews.

    --and that is not hyperbole -- I said "starting to" -- the OP is dancing around the edge, careful not to go too far and be exposed for the racist that she is.

    So, saying that the welfare state is harmful to blacks and trying to remove said state to improve on the black communities standing is racist?

    Also Godwin's law is in effect. you lose the argument.
