    Blacks are on the bottom of the scale of just about every social trait. does it matter what the reason is? can black culture be changed (for the better) without someone imposing it on them? the last five decades don't inspire much hope for the future.

    and why do we think culture is independent of genetics? culture takes its cue from the natural tendencies of the group and the demands of the environment. is it really a surprise to anyone that whites are more successful in white culture than blacks?

    blacks did not have the environmental pressures in africa to select for far horizon planning and strong family groups like caucasians did. why then should we expect them to behave like whites? on the other hand, if blacks do not have the same skills that are valued in white society, why do they think they should be as successful as whites?

    Honestly at this point I blame it on liberal policy.

    Affirmative action does nothing but tell blacks "here you aren't smart enough to make it without special privileges." If you tell someone they are dumb for long enough they will believe it themselves.

    Then we have people like Ravi , who find nothing wrong with black rage towards police if in their minds they had a good reason. How about telling blacks that NO REASON is good enough to attack a LEO? That's certainly the lesson my parents taught me and that I've taught my children.

    just as two examples.

    It has nothing to do with the girl being black.

    I seem to have picked up a fan.

    I tend to agree with ConHog, and add the cultural chages from the '60's.

    "One study that ran more than two decades found that nearly 90% of the change in violent crime rates can be attributed to the change in percentages of out-of-wedlock births. Conversely, divorce rates had no relationship with crime.

    In The Atlantic Monthly, Barbara Dafoe Whitehead noted that the "relationship [between single-parent families and crime] is so strong that controlling for family configuration erases the relationship between race and crime and between low income and crime. This conclusion shows up time and again in the literature. The nation's mayors, as well as police officers, social workers, probation officers, and court officials, consistently point to family break up as the most important source of rising rates of crime."

    This is another excellent platform for the GOP to run on: Blacks are stupid.

    You guys continue to top yourselves.
