They are fed a regular diet of victimization in the cycle of poverty - sometimes self-inflicted, sometimes not - by their parents, other blacks and the government.

They are not getting the right message from enough black leaders on how to break the cycle.

It's really that simple...in my opinion.

<quoted text>Whatever you thought you'd answered, it was not to my satisfaction. There are genetic disorders that only affect .001% of the population; that doesn't translate to saying they weren't born that way. I don't know how anyone could think that one could "choose" his/her sexual orientation. Trust me, most working women at times have longed for a wife, but just in the kitchen. Honestly, you think you could just decide to start having sexual desire for men? Your suicide stats are weak and out of date, and the "money" seems to be going for people like Marcus Bachmann and his crazy-eyed wife to pray away the gay which just doesn't work. I hope my child grows up knowing that love is love--same for gay and straight--and marriage between the two should be equal.
Genetic, meaning they lack a gene of some sort, or it's in their family genes. Neither fits gay habits. There is no gay gene, & gay is not hereditary. It may be a disease, but its not hereditary. No, I could never look at a man like that, then again I wasn't coaxed as a child before my brain was able to process the situation. A child is born dumb & had to learn anything. Sexual orientation is no different. Look at grade school kids, they haven't learn their sexual identity yet. They see boys in the same light they see girls & normally choose to play with boys over girls. Do me a favor Leo, name something else a child is born with besides genetics & diseases! Again not arguing, just debating.

Because of your racism, Dood.
The Boy Messiah will say anything to get elected to power, to retain that power and to exercise that power.
Lying works. To wit: ImaginaryDave falls for it continuously.
Here we go again, the racial slur lowlife calls me a racist because I point out his obvious racism. Why else would you post slurs? Explain it to me. Do you think it is cute? Clever? smart?

<quoted text> I was taught there are 3 types of people, or 3 ways of learning better said. Those that listen & learn, those that need to see it done & use memory as a learning tool, & those that learn hands on. Teachers aren't the same anymore. They expect to teach 1 specific way & everyone to learn, or they label them with a learning disability when it's not the case at all. When a child doesn't understand, they seek attention sometime inn a bad way. It's a cry for help! A true teacher should be able to analyze each student & proceed accordingly.
This is very true. But if a child's parent(s) sees the school as free daycare and teachers as free babysitters and believe their child is beyond reproach or discipline, without a home environment that supports even the best efforts on the part of an educator, these students simply don't stand a chance.

They will eventually continue the vicious cycle of poverty, sadly. Especially in the inner cities.

That is total bullshit! There are white kids acting out the same way for the same reasons, & it has nothing to do with being black or white. If a child isn't learning, the teacher isn't teaching right unless the child really has a learning disability, which is hardly ever the case. Too much parent interference, not enough parenting & extended parenting. The child is in the custody of the school while in school. The teachers used to look at it like that in the day. Now they're afraid of the parents so they don't put in that extra effort to a child that really needs it!

You & Rand Paul? Lets repeal the 13th Amendment? Really.

Freeing slaves was the problem????

You forget that blacks were legally discriminated against until just 50 years ago in many areas before the Civil Rights Act passed

That's less than two generations.

They had fewer educational opportunities. Fewer economic opportunities.

I lived in Kentucky for a couple of years & racism is alive & considered normal there.

This idea that blacks have had equal opportunity since the 13th amendment is ridiculous. To think they did after 1964 is ridiculous.

You don't hold a entire race under your thumb for 250 years, & then expect the effects to dissipate in one generation.

Being smart in school is frown upon by many kids regardless of race.

Speaking of gay marriage, New Zealand just joined 12 other countries legalizing same-sex marriage.
Which countries you ask?
Uruguay.
Argentina.
The Netherlands.

Sweden.
Iceland.
Portugal.
Denmark.
No surprise. Either the most liberal or inconsequential countries on the planet.
Think of all the countries in Asia and Europe alone who refuse to redefine marriage. Most countries in South America even get it.
Okay, let's break it down.

Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands - the model countries for liberalism - these 4 are a given.

South Africa and Iceland. Who cares?

Uruguay and Argentina. The only two countries in Latin America.

Spain and Portugal. Big deal.

Canada. No surprise. They have a failed socialized health system too.

The overwhelming number of countries on 7 continents still say no to gay marriage.

Maybe the liberals here should move to Iceland...or South Africa...or any one of the other few other countries left to choose from.

However, it is primarily blacks in the inner cities who are most at risk.

Also, unemployment in these cities among blacks is reaching 15%.

FBI:'Exercise Caution and Attempt to Verify Information Through Appropriate Official Channels Before Reporting'
3:06 PM, Apr 17, 2013 By DANIEL HALPER
http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/fbi-exerc...
After multiple media outlets (especially CNN) wrongly reported that an arrest had been made in Boston, the FBI is urging media to "exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting."
"Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack. Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting," says the FBI's Boston office in a statement to the media.
you forgot to mention FOX.

As of 2:35 p.m. EDT, here's what's being reported. CNN: No arrest, no one in custody. Globe: Suspect in custody. Herald: Suspect arrested. Fox News: Suspect arrested. NBC: "Solid leads." CBS: No arrest. AP: Suspect in custody.

http://deadspin.com/reports-suspect-identifie...

FOX has since made a 'correction' that doesn't mention the fact that they got it wrong.

Background Checks Die At The Hands Of Senate Filibuster

About nine out of 10 Americans support universal background checks, according to polls. The failed vote reflects the enduring power of the National Rifle Association, which opposed the bill and threatened to target lawmakers who voted in its favor.

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/04/se...

so it seems that a radical minority is still in charge of Congress as once again the will of the majority is ignored.

that won't help the minority much in 2014. keep up the good work nutjobs.

Guys we need more support for Boston marathon runner's. We have some donations already but what we're focusing on is Facebook support. If we get enough Likes and support CNN's Don Lemon will run a story and really take us Global. The goal is Alleviate the financial burden from the Richard family. They lost the 8 year old boy and the poor man's daughter and wife were severally injured in the blast. If you could just like the page or even read the updates I'd greatly appreciate it. Anyone who does when we donate every single name of supporters who like the page and donate will be put on a card to Bill Richard the father. Thanks all.www.facebook.com/BostonMarathonTragedySup...

When IEDs Come Home: What Boston Looked Like to Iraq Veterans

It wasn't like seeing the Iraq war break out on the Boston streets, they said, but they found their experiences rushing back while watching the news as they tried to figure out what kind of bomb it might have been. Because, for a year or more of their adult lives, what happened on Monday was a regular experience. Some worried the attack could become another pretense for war. Some tried to stifle a feeling that Americans don't care about the people overseas who are blown up all the time.

True, but there's so many components that result in the UE rates among blacks. Too many to cover, but the #1 reason is, failure of the system. The system is designed for the black youth to fail. Go to the ghetto, there's a liquor store on every corner. Where are most of the drugs funneled into? The ghetto. Assuring a good percentage will be in the system, & once in the system they'll never get out. That's where I feel Obama failed so far. Not a black thing, but an equality thing. Give the kids a fair chance. Their parents made sacrifices for it & still are!
