    Characteristics and Financial Circumstances - FY 2008

    actually it is more than 6 times but that is nitpicking. why are blacks so vulnerable to being incapable of taking care of themselves? the numbers for using govt handout programs are even more skewed. why do so many blacks settle for a marginal parasitic lifestyle?

    why do so many blacks fail to acquire lifeskills necessary for middleclass living? is it capability, substandard values and culture or is it just racism and lack of opportunity?

    has affirmative action run into the brick wall of human capital? is it possible to drag more blacks into the middleclass by handing out more govt and AA jobs to underqualified minorities or have we reached the point of diminished returns?

    they are not so much facts as data. inspecting data is a good way to find a useful direction for more investigation. our social programs have helped some problems and caused others. we shouldnt just ignore inconvenient findings because someone might be offended. I think we can do a lot more for minority developement but it has to be tied to personal responsibility and effort rather than simply group affiliation.

    70% have single parent households for one.

    The other thing is getting good grades isn't cool.

    Many choose to dress with their pants around their knees so they have problems getting a job.

    Besides, they have powerful lobbys in Washington like the NAACP, the CBC, and the Rainbow coalition so many don't try as hard as they should.

    Sorry maybe bad joke

    Really thought the Liberal dems for some reason have them in a trance. What is it about 40 years that the Dems have carried the Black Vote. One would think by now they would be fed up with, shall I dare say sucking hind Tit.
    You know I bet very few Blacks know that Linclon was a republican. And also the white man is the race that forced the civil war in order to free the blacks and were mostly republicans. In the USA today Bullshit goes a long way just ask our newest leader.

    Just goes to show you what a horrific institution slavery and Jim Crow..actually were.

    Poverty like wealth is inherited. Two fold if you live in a country that regards skin color as a basis for intellect, ability, integrity and merit.

    Does this apply to every state in the US? There are plenty of Whites in Texas who are on welfare.
