The key point in your post is what we have been saying all along, theirs is a 2 parent household, which is no longer the norm in black America thanks to the policies of the Democrats beginning in the early '60s.

The problem with that rally was far too much rhetoric identifying the problems and placing blame but not one solution.
Obama at least put out an effort to make the black community take a long and hard look at itself - but it was too little, too late.
Says who? You? Save it moron, your racism clouds any hope of you ever seeing this clearly. Don't you have a box of crullers to pack your face with? Get busy and stop wasting everyone's time.

So you're actually admitting you didn't know about Eric Holder's investigation to find a racial motivation on the part of Zimmerman into Martin's death? And that Holder's intention was to take Zimmerman to civil court if any evidence could be found by the FBI?

How embarrassing for you.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened May 1 on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas after much anticipation. The $250 million library brought together all living presidents for a dedication ceremony on April 25, where they showered praise on the 43rd president of the United States.

But according to the Democratic nonprofit group Bridge Project, which focuses on "exposing the conservative movement's dishonest tactics," the library's version of the Bush legacy suffers from selective memory loss. Bridge Project thus created a library of its own Thursday, in the form of a website BushRewrite.org , which the group said will "rectify the falsehoods and omissions of the Bush library."

The timing coincides with the eighth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a low point of Bush's two-term presidency. The Bush library has already been accused of glossing over Katrina, which killed 1,833 people and destroyed an estimated $81 billion in property. The library overlooks the Bush administration's delayed reaction and includes no pictures of the desperate crowds at the Louisiana Superdome or the New Orleans Morial Convention Center -- images that quickly spurred suggestions that race was a factor in the muted federal response.

The halls of the Bush library ignore other disturbing facts, the Bush Rewrite states on the website. The Huffington Post was offered an exclusive look at the website, which says that the Bush White House "was plagued by a series of scandals and controversies" and "policy failures." It contains pages with what Bridge Project calls a "stark reminder" of Bush's true legacy, ranging from the economy, which revisits events preceeding the 2008 financial collapse, to war and national security, which highlights the Bush administration's torture and rendition programs.

The Bush Rewrite also recalls Bush's record on education, environmental policy and Social Security. In some cases, the website displays pictures taken at the Bush Library to underscore the contrast between the museum's more favorable remembrance with media reports.

A section called "The Missing Wing" is dedicated to controversial moments under Bush's presidency that his library chose not to mention, such as the roles played by Vice President Dick Cheney and senior adviser-turned-deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, the Abu Ghraib prisoner torture scandal, and Bush's support for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

Bridge Project also uses the website to argue that congressional Republicans continue pushing policies that are harmful today.

Anytime any president addresses a group of loyal followers and tells them they should "punish our enemies" and he's not talking about foreign enemies...we're in deep doo-doo.
Imagine if President Bush spoke in front of an audience of loyal conservatives and had even implied liberals were the "enemy".
My first reaction would be "WHAT enemies??" I would have been appalled and quite upset.
Bush would have never gotten away with saying something like that though. The liberal media would have chewed him up and spit him out 24/7.
He would have been vilified long before Congressional Democrats became weasels and left him to hang out to dry for personal and political gain after the Iraq War.
But liberals and the liberal media have no problem with the rest of us being called the "enemy". And why Homeland Security had no problem putting the Tea Party on the "enemies list". And why the IRS felt justified in targeting the "enemy". And why liberals call the "enemy" racists.
And why we're in such deep doo-doo.
Many would argue that hatred is a greater motivator than Love or Patriotism. The Boy Messiah is one of them.

Just listen to his rhetoric.

We all hate Bashar al-Assad, don't we?

Every loyal black Magic Negro voter hates George Zimmerman, right?

You keep waiting for the Republicans. Carol.
After the defeat of Hillarycare,Republicans ran Congress for 12 straight years. Why didn't they fix it then?
Why an't they offer a replacement plan now?
Finding solutions to the health care crisis has stumped both Democratic-controlled and Republican-controlled Congresses for decades.

Bill Clinton ran on finding a solution and Hillary was assigned that task. It was similar to Obamacare and even Democrats knew it wasn't the solution back then.

The world changed the same year Bush took office. We had much bigger issues to deal with but, when Democrats won back Congress in 2007, they proceeded to follow the orders decreed by a new President Obama to produce his vision of health care - which as Harry Reid admitted on PBS was the first step to single-payer.

And here we are.

If you want to find out what happened during Katrina, check out the Mayor Ray Nagle Corruption Wing or the Hallway of Kathleen Blanco Shame. Missing was their planning for the hurricane. This was my favorite exhibit:

On the Saturday edition of the NBC Nightly News, anchored by John Seigenthaler, correspondent Lisa Myers reported several critical mistakes made by Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco in handling the Hurricane Katrina crisis. The story even showcased a whispered conversation, recorded by CNN, between Blanco and an aide in which Blanco admitted she had been too slow in asking for federal troops. Blanco: "I really need to call for the military ... and I should have started that in the first call."

Myers also relayed that when Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin ordered a mandatory evacuation 20 hours before Katrina hit, they were ignoring the advice of experts who had warned it would take 48 hours. Additionally, Blanco was slow to get National Guard troops to restore order.

Sen. Tim Scott’s office claimed that he wasn’t invited to the March on Washington event yesterday, but the truth is that every member of Congress including Scott was invited weeks ago.

The latest in Republican false meme creation began when ABC “Benghazi emails” News reported,“The only African American serving in the Senate, Republican Tim Scott, wasn’t invited to partake in the festivities today, a spokesman confirmed to ABC News.” This statement was also reported by the Newscorp owned Wall Street Journal, which was then quoted by The Washington Post.

But according to the event organizers, this isn’t true. Roll Call broke with the mainstream media tradition of taking a Republican’s word for it by actually asking the organizers of the event if Republicans were invited. In an email statement, a spokesperson for the event said,“This was truly a bipartisan outreach effort…All members of congress were invited to attend and the Republican leadership was invited to speak. Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office was very helpful in trying to find someone to speak at the event. Making this commemoration bi-partisan was especially important to members of the King family, too.”

In fact, organizers of the event were desperately trying to find Republicans who would be willing to come and speak to the crowd of 100,000.

Organizers tried to find Republicans to come and speak, but Tim Scott claims that he wasn’t invited.

It appears that the Republican senator from South Carolina isn’t being honest.

Clearly the only way in which a person can be discriminated against for life is by making him a felon. It's not right.
Can you believe we agree on something? LOL
<quoted text> She suggests that it is our fault that felons are criminals. We as a society do not force people to commit crimes,they do it of their our desire. Recognition of true facts about a persons criminal history is not discrimination. Certainly,it would be great if every one could have a job,but that is never going to happen since the guy who is currently occupying The White House has an anti-employment agenda.
Write your state legislature moron__your state restores the voting rights for felons so long as they are no longer under state control, parole etc.
