Simple facts.


Mississipi: Poorest state. Lowest average income per capita. One of the Biggest republican voting block of all states. Takes in the most per capita assistance from the government.

Maryland. Richest state. Highest average income per capita. Solid blue voting block. Takes in some of the lowest per capita assitance from the government.

But that seems to go against common sense.

Repubs= go fuck yourself, you should be self reliant.
Democrats=socialist programs to help the poor.

Wow...What a stunning discovery that has never ever been discussed and parsed here! :rolleyes:

hasn't that I've seen, but I've not been around long. So, you can give your opinion, or go do something productive somewhere else.

Miss and Al are around 30-40% black. I will need to find the test scores(4th and 8th grade) to prove it for you. Whites score no worse then Oregon, Ohio, Pa, ect. This is a fact.
I don't believe that I brought up Race. I wasn't even thinking of it. Although since Blacks vote 90% Democratic, you'd think that would mean Mississipi wouldn't be so hard right given those numbers.

Why do you think race has anything to do with it?

The scores, being released today, show that the achievement gap between the top-scoring students — Asians and whites — and the lowest scoring — African Americans, Hispanics and American Indians — has grown slightly between 2007 and 2011.

• for whites, 22.1 in 2007 to 22.4 in 2011
• for African Americans, the score remained at 17 for both years

2011 ACT scores show problems with college readiness - The Answer Sheet - The Washington Post

There isn't one piece of data that shows whites and blacks as equal...Honestly, there's at least solid data in support of my belief system, while none for yours.

Here is a chart from 2006-2010 of Whites, Asians, blacks, meso's
(ACT)
Average ACT Composite Test Scores by Race/Ethnicity, 2006

This shows the gap staying between 21-29 points.

Gap at age 17 increased. Which is most important when dealing with people going towards a higher education.

http://www.blackexcel.org/06-sat-act...-ethnicity.htm

Quote from attached SAT/ACT article:

"Readiness for college science and math coursework was particularly low among
African American students. Only 5 percent of African American test-takers scored
at or above the college-readiness benchmark for college biology, and just 10
percent attained the readiness benchmark for college algebra. Ferguson said
Black students were less likely than others to take tough, college-prep courses
and "often don't receive the information and guidance they need to properly plan
for college."

2012 didn't charge as it remained at 17. Even through every other race improved!

Also alarming are continued and widening gaps between racial groups. The average composite score for white students was 22.4, up from 22.1 in 2008. Average scores for Asians have risen even faster, from 22.9 to 23.6. But the average composite score for black students remains substantially lower and has risen just 0.1 points, from 16.9 to 17.0. Composite scores for Hispanic students were 18.9, up from 18.7 both a year ago and in 2008.

While 42 percent of Asians and 32 percent of whites met college-readiness benchmarks in all four subject areas, just 13 percent of Hispanics and 5 percent of black students did so.

Think population density, Skippy.
ah, so because Urban populations tend to lean to the left, whereas rural lean right, that's the big answer?

Isn't that just coping to the fact that those who live in cities, are typically educated and have higher paying jobs.... tend to vote one way, while cabbage patch voters go the other way? I would have thought that Republicans would find that kind of distinction offensive.

I have no idea what point you are trying to make, other than furthering the thought that you're a pretty bigotted individual.

Or perhaps that urban populations have more taxpayers per square mile to draw from for the given expenditures, than do more rural areas.

And I'm not a republican, cabbage head.

LOL,

I'm proving that blacks score much lower on test. This explains the disparity between the two parts of the country.

Don't like it, don't ask the question. :eusa_boohoo:

So let me figure out your argument. I point out that Miss. is poor, yet votes Republican consistantly, and your answer is that it's full of stupid black people?

Not exactly the argument I thought I'd see... given you wouldn't want to think that people were voting for Romney, Bush etc... because they were stupid.

How many lawyers live in Maryland anyway?

Probably more than Bismark North Dakota.

Whites vote 90% republican white as they understand what blacks are. :eusa_shhh:Blacks cause 52.2% of all murders in the United states. Learn something.

Oh sorry. Teabagger then. or whatever the hell you are.

But it would be those same taxpayers that had much greater wealth being applied to social progarms that they do not need as much. That makes very little sense.

Oh, and thank you for the feedback through rep. "Teabag this, fuckchop" may be the most creative I've seen yet.

Ah, Matthew, thank you for the rep comment. "Spread for the dog" is a very interesting statement to make!

I look forward to hear more of your brilliant commentary.
