some one should invent a working class city negro stable family.

the Model would be a household with a husband and wife (married for the protection of da kids) as head of household, working, being active role models for the children they bring into the world.
no welfare queens need apply.

Hey Now that I think about it that's what the black family looked like before welfare ruined the black family back in the 60's.

Yes boys and girls Look up the "history of Harlem" written by the department of health and human services. the study covers harlem from 1850 to 1970 and details the destruction of the black family unit by welfare.

Harlem was selected for the study because it has been a stable black community since the mid 1800's so there is lots of historical data to show what welfare did to black families.

so the black family needs to be reinvented, we could just shut down the welfare system.

we have wasted trillions of dollars on welfare since the 60's and all we have is lots more poverty so throwing money at the problem hasn't fixed the problem.

For Low Information voters, I mean obama voters, Walmart is apex of their life! What isn't accounted for is the entire package they already receive - obama phone, food stamps, medicare, medicaid, etc, of which very little is paid for by their taxes.

just remember black voters you should and could have had several walmarts on the south side of Chicago.

However city hall voted the special interest of city unions over the needs and wants of the city black population which lives in a shopping desert.

Unions don't want walmart cause its a non union operation so the need of blacks are swept aside and the need of the unions win again.

See Black folks even with affirmative action blacks are second class citizens with Chicago city hall democrats and unions who claim to be your friends.

yet the black moron voter keeps voting democrat. what lame morons you deserve what you got NOTHING.

so hows that voting for democrats working for ya??
