From his posts, NJ Raider seems to have forgotten education is the key and parents involved in their child's education is crucial for success. No matter what color they are.
And because he and most blacks voted for Obama and, thus, Obamacare, jobs are going to be even more scarce next year and frustrations are going to grow even higher, particularly among uneducated black men.
Poverty in the inner cities is a vicious cycle but they, themselves, have to break it. Most seemingly would rather be seen as victims living off democrats who literally want them there just to stay in power.
Sad to say, but far too many blacks have only themselves to blame.
NJ Raider finds it easier to blame Whitey instead of accept responsibility. He is a pawn, a nobody. Just a useful idiot for them.

<quoted text>Hey DB, for this instance, just take my scenario. Well let's just take the Zimmerman-Martin scenario without adding anything to it. What would be your response if that were your son?
I would have to put in the perspective of the family I grew up in. In our family, you have a responsibility of being honest and acting responsibly. In our family, there are no excuses. It's upon you to conduct yourself properly. If there were a son that began using drugs, hung around gangs, dropped out of school, etc., we conclude that the possibility of something happening to them that happens to all others that are doing those same things is a real probability. We aren't anything special with special protection. Given the path chosen, and knowing other parents who have children who chose that same path, and having been with them at the funerals for their children, we would not be surprised.
Yes, there would be sadness. There would be sadness when it became obvious they were on the wrong path. The loss would not be instantaneous to us. In reality, the loss would have begun long before the death.
On the other hand, if a son did everything we thought was proper, and he was killed by some gangbanger wannabe like Trayvon Martin, I cannot predict what I would do. I can say the thoughts I would have would not be nice. How I would act cannot be determined until the event actually occurs.

I believe Trayvon Martin was taught to hate white people his entire life. He grew up thinking that was proper. He thought Zimmerman was white.
But, considering the overwhelmingly obvious black-on-black crime rate, it's difficult to determine what difference it would really make.

Family physicians are MDs. But physician assistants have become all medical doctors' right hand. Most clinics have PAs who see doctor's patients for emergency visits and off hours. People who don't have a regular physician never know they're being examined and treated by a PA. Even in hospitals.
You underestimate the apathy growing among MDs because of excessive regulations, paperwork and patient loads and the feeling that their hands are being tied. They are more than happy to unload many of their patients on PAs for exams, diagnosing and treatment.
It's now the norm in the medical profession. A done deal, as it were. No telling how many MDs are going to leave the profession next year.
Insist on seeing a real doctor, not a clerk.

If you're not sure who is treating you, ask them.

If there is no doctor, don't pay and go elsewhere.

Assert your rights.

The liberal media will not touch the issue of exposing the problems within the black community with a 10-foot pole. It might lose votes for their bosses.
Fortunately, other blacks are talking about it and raising their voices saying 'we are our own problem...we have to fix it'.
So... are they 'exposing' the problems within the white community son?

Can you expand on their findings?

Disagree. The more aggressive they became the more they turned off the Independent voters. Sure it's what you rightwing idiots wanted, constant attacks on the president.

Bottom line is they couldn't sell themselves on the issues, mostly because they were wrong on them.

So, hispanics are white, and you hate all white people, right?
How long do you think it will take for the hispanics to figure that one out? Do you think they are being enlightened by the racists acting like they're upset about the not guilty verdict?
Actually, since you want to be smart, Hispanics are black in nature. They receive the same unfair treatments as black. It has less to do with race & more to do with demographics. Blacks & Hispanics are raised in the same hood &, therefore treated the same. Zimmerman is considered white because his daddy is white &, used white privilege to expunge Zimmerman's felony offenses that would've prevented him from owning a gun &, if he were black or Hispanic, would've landed him in prison. Do y'all really believe Johnson & Johnson would've paid for a Hispanics defense? Everyone knows his mother is Peruvian but, evidenced by all of his outside support financially, in this country " you are what you father is." So your dreams of stealing the Hispanic vote by default is gone with the wind!

NJ Raider finds it easier to blame Whitey instead of accept responsibility. He is a pawn, a nobody. Just a useful idiot for them.
and finds it easier to ignore the murders that occur every day--just one example a 17 year old in Chicago, Darryl Green, who was murdered for his refusal to join a gang.

'The sad fact is that the media do not care about dead black Americans, unless those blacks are murdered by whites.

Never mind the fact that blacks constitute 13.1 percent of the American population but 49 percent of murder victims.

Never mind the fact that black life in the inner cities is plagued not by white people stalking down black kids, but by black kids hunting down other black kids.

Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that America is a terribly brutal and racist country requiring endless government interventionism to fix.

Such facts don't forward the leftist narrative that white folks, particularly conservative white folks who believe in judging people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin, are the true threat to black success.

Such facts undercut the liberal agenda of ignoring problems in the black community in favor of cobbling together a coalition of people dedicated to fundamentally changing the system.

The left is committed to changing America in basic ways.

But in order to create enough support for changing the greatest and most tolerant nation ever to grace the planet, the left must portray America as an evil, nasty place. Doing that requires promoting the lie that non-black Americans hate black people, and would dig their old white sheets and burning crosses out of storage if given half a chance. Both the media and the Democratic Party are complicit in that propaganda effort. Building on the fact that America used to be a racist place, and ignoring 50-plus years of American transformation, the left has convinced many Americans, both black and white, that America is a grotesque and monstrous place.

For many Americans, it feels so good to buy into that notion. It provides an easy dose of unearned moral superiority -- "America is racist, but I'm not, because I believe America is racist."

It allows Americans to ignore real and pressing problems in favor of moaning about vague and undefined ones -- "forget about Darryl Green, let's talk about institutional racism."

Most of all, it carries with it an easy and dismissive solution -- "let's turn power over to a chosen few who can fix everything."

Meanwhile, more Darryl Greens will die. So will more Trayvon Martins, given the fact that Martin was the product of a broken home, had a criminal history and a history of fighting, and was caught up in drug culture -- all factors in his death, and all problems the media refuse to talk about. But the media don't care about those deaths.

All they care about is the larger goal: fixing America, one fake racial scandal at a time.
