I say it's because furthering education is not that important to many, many households are run by a single mother and unless she is making a lot of money that can account for why blacks lag behind economically, not all of course, but many.

Collectivists apply the same thinking to the economic realm... where the criminal insists someone else is responsible for what he did, the collectivist insists someone else is responsible for what he didn't do.

For example, the skillful, ambitious, energetic, intelligent, hard working person must bear responsibility for the material sustenance of those who are not skillful, ambitious, energetic, intelligent and hard working.

Yeah, single mothers have to keep their income below a certain level ON PURPOSE to keep getting benefits...

Not only that, many of the homes that are classified under single mothers are not really single...again they put single to receive benefits, while the man is living in the home unreported....Thats a huge reason why many black ont marry.

Thank You....I live in the projects in NYC...its not too many "poor" black ppl around. We just know how to jerk the system better than other races...Well, Hispanics are also good at it.

The problem with that is ppl become dependent..and the next thing your 45yrs old with no retirement acct or assets to live off...

It really sucks becuase once your income level rises above a certain level..I know in NYC its like $28,000 with one child, Your benefits get cut.

I am a college student and I was working a good part-time job bringing home a little above proverty level. They raised the rent and cut my health care. So I either had to quit school and get a full-time job or quit my job and get back my benefits while I finish school.
I have no problems getting them benefits....

I do think that the media always portraying Blacks as dumb thugs and criminals, that horrible, degrading, destructive Rap music(if you can even call it music), and racism(subtle but very much around) holds us back.

USA don't owe nothing.... All have the ability to return where their roots came from... We should be upset with our people of Africa that sold our people to USA...Anyway, we never complained about slavery, it is still done today, sell sell sell... So blame our own people for being easy to sell

HA HA HA, Retirement? Where you been Bro?
This govt' doesn't want you around to retire, When you stop working you're dead. Can't you see they're working us right to the grave?

How long can you expect to live under a system like this: YOU'RE OVERWORKED; OVERTAXED; NO ACCESS
TO GOOD HEALTHY FOODS, YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO COOK AND PREPARE IT ANYWAY IF YOU DID; HIGH FUEL PRICES; AND NO HEALTHCARE?

So far they've had 'RECALLS on PEANUT BUTTER, CHICKEN POT PIES, LETTUCE,SPINACH, MASSIVE BEEF RECALLS, THIS IS OUR FOOD PEOPLE.

I THINK THE MESSAGE IS; THEY ARE WARNING US THAT NOTHING IS SAFE.......WE MUST TAKE THE LOST AND GIT, YES I SAID GIT THE F*CK OUT OF IRAQ.

American blacks will always be poor because:

The problem is RACE!!!!!!
It's called RACE for a reason.
When the RACES started there were(and still are) only three contestants.
White,black and Asian;all others are mixtures of the three.
When the starting gun for the RACES went off at the time of creation;
Whites began to sprint and haven't slowed down for a second.
Asians immediately followed in second place and are still trying.
Blacks were still at home asleep.......and still arezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzz
This clown is back under another name, This DIP-WAD has appeared here under several names.
Why? When he's taking a break between PORNO Movies
he pops his ugly head out to let us know he's still trying as well to become 'DENNIS THE MENACE'

White people sprinted, Yeah right over into IRAQ getting their heads cut-off!!! Think we were gonna follow you're stupid a$$e$??

Blacks are the RICHEST RACE on the PLANET, We are only poor as individuals, That's why the White COCKROACHES appear here to keep us separated.

One day we're gonna lift our feet and just stomp and squiss you, We keep giving you chance after chance.

Because the majority of us work for whitey.Because we have allowed other ethnic groups to invade our local economy.Because we talk about bullsh&^%T most of the time.Because we show off too much.

So I either had to quit school and get a full-time job or quit my job and get back my benefits while I finish school. I have no problems getting those benifits.
There's more than those two options, you haven't learned enough in school yet or real life.
Where do you think your benifits come from? Me.
I owe you nothing.
Starting off young living off the dole.
Where did you learn that?
Quit with excuses, stand up and be proud, do it on your own.
Look I cant help it if I was born poor. Dont be mad t me this is the way things are. I'm not to live pay check to pay check so you can keep your tax money. I am glad everyday I dont believe in that notion. I dont have mommy or daddy to help me out when time is hard, I'm not going to inherit anything when they die. So instead I have to survive and I am going to use ALL means leaglly provided to do so. The public schools in rich neighrhoods have carpets in their hallways...while the poor schools dont even have enough books to go around. When I finish college I wont have a problem helping out those in need.


And you're wrong when you say you owe me nothing. This is a society and EVERYONE has to pitch in somehow. If you dont like it go live somewhere else

Yes I do see..Thats why I'm trying my best not to be apart of that crowd. I'm not about to quit school to become apart of the poor-working class all for my pride.....If I do I will end up working for $$..Something I dont want to do..I want my $$ to work for me...I want to own real-estate and invest my $$, and have $$ for my future.
