There is nothing you would consider proof. I am not lying. Believe what you want. But again, accusing me of lying without proof on your part is defamation of character. Think Verizon. How safe are you really?
Ooooh, so very scary......

If you had proof, you'd show it.

Obviously you don't.

That makes you a liar.

I agree, your racist attempts to link welfare & criminal activity & single motherhood with a person's race IS a broken record.

Now lie again and claim you never said that either....

I can't help if you are too slow to comprehend what I have posted.
EVERYONE on here comprehend what you're posting.

You're claiming race is a factor in determining whether someone will be on welfare or in prison or on drug or be a single mother.

Yes, we ALL comprehend that you're a racist.

Number one, I have posted facts about percentages of races on Welfare, in prison, with single moms, and violent crime rates. I have posted that race is a factor, not a cause. I have pointed out that the low percentage of blacks in this country should yield low percentages of those negative factors compared to the vastly predominant race, but just the opposite is true. That confirms that race is a factor.
Posting facts does not make me a racist, just because you don't like the facts and those facts are race related.
No, it just proves you don't understand the statistical evidence you are posting.

Yes, you are a racist when you attempt to interpret the statistical evidence to claim it shows race is a factor, rather than a statistical anomaly.

Yes Virginia, it DOES make you a racist.

What special treatment to promote education do whites receive? Was there an Executive order for white education, like there was for blacks?
Why is the incidence so low in white people as compared to black people? I have broken the numbers down for you. No comment there huh?
How do you explain 4% of all blacks on Welfare while only 0.7% of all whites are on Welfare? That means blacks are 6 times more likely to be on Welfare than whites.
Oooo, more facts you don't like to see or hear.
Because blacks are 6 times more likely to be poor than whites- DUH!!!

Income determines whether you qualify for welfare, and a greater percentage of blacks live in poverty than whites.

Either you're EXTREMELY STUPID that you don't understand that directly accounts for the overrepresentation in welfare statistics

Or you're such an EXTREME RACIST that you are unable to recognize that simple fact.

So which is it?

Are you EXTREMELY STUPID?
Or are you and EXTREME RACIST?

The continue funding of public schools based on property tax districts.

Laws which ban minorities from attending better white schools because they don't live in that school district.

All courses and testing methodology created by and developed with white people in mind, failing to account for different cultural factors which become a barrier to learning for minorities.

Those are just a few example of special treatment which promotes education for whites.

IMO the election of the first African American President gives minorities a renewed optimism about the future of the country, and thatís a good thing. The country as a whole is better off today than we were in 2008 when the economy crashed; but we are still slogging through trying to come out to a strong and growing economy.
Why? The same high unemployment rates as under Bush (especially amongst blacks and hispanics), the same government bailouts of fat-cats while small businesses fail, the same out of control deficit spending and endless borrowing from "reliable allies" like communist China and the Islamist Saudis just to keep up with the interest payments, the same outsourcing of jobs to Asia...

Obama is but a pastier looking Bush clone.

No such thing as reverse discrimination. If government favors one group over another based on race that is just plain old discrimination. Both segregation and integration are examples of discriminatory policies. If government is not race neutral it is...

Sorry but priviledged Caucasians are not effected in any way by affirmative action. Neither are poor blacks. It is about making sure white trash get the shaft so the kids of black doctors and lawyers can...

<quoted text>Because it's been proven long ago that the correlation isn't race, but rather poverty, low education, and living in high crime urban areas.

Everyone but a total racist moron such as yourself knows that more blacks live in poverty, have a lower education, and live in high crime areas than do whites or Asians. That's why blacks are overrepresented when looking at the population as a whole.

Whites & Hispanics & asians who are poor and have a low education and live in high crime urban areas have about the same rate of criminal activity, single motherhood, drug abuse, etc as blacks in the same situation.

That's why race is a statistical anomaly, not a true factor.
You keep talking in circles hoping no one catches up to you. You've been caught! We know about poverty. You still have yet to explain why blacks stay in poverty despite all the help for Affirmative Action, Executive Orders, and Government Handouts. Your only response is whites do it to. But when cornered with the statistics showing blacks(13% of US) are 6 times more likely to be on Welfare, commit violent crime, or go to prison, than whites(72% of US), you start the circle all over again.
Try answering the questions! If its been proven, post the source proving it! All you do is accuse everyone you don't agree with of being a racist. That's not going to get you out of this one! Post the prove you state has been around for so long!

INCOME determines whether you qualify for welfare, not race.

DUH!!

Race does not determine whether or not you qualify for welfare; income does.

DUH!!

Thanks for proving race isn't a factor in welfare; only poverty is.
But why is there a greater percentage of blacks living below the poverty level? Why don't they take advantage of the education opportunities available just to them, and the ones available to minorities? Education leads to prosperity.

Of course we all see the proof of your racism every time you claim race is a factor in why people are on welfare or in jail or a single mothers.

Yep, you're a racist.
