Currently, Black male life expectancy is finally at 70, and what a SHOCK that Romney/Ryan would have raised the age of Medicare eligibility to 70...
Don't try to pin this on Romney/Ryan. There's been talk, on both sides, of raising medicare eligibility for some time now.

I watched it. Her son tried to commit suicide to try to get her to stop. It didn't work. Seems she might be on the right road now after the Intervention therapy.
What did you think of her mother? Was she a trip? And a dad totally the opposite. No wonder she was a mess with everything that happened to her and having those parents.
I skipped the heroin addict next. I can't stand seeing someone shoot themselves with a needle.
Yeah. Awful human beings. Did you hear what the dad said? Something like "She's less of a priority now that I've re-married." or some such nonsense. Doesn't sound like she was *ever* a priority.

The heroin one was just a spoiled manchild. No traumatic events, just given a lot of freedom and not a lot of rules early on. He was dating--get this--a drug and alcohol counselor. She thought she could *fix* him, and she was the one who actually called Intervention to get him on the show, but *she* ended up doing heroin and going to treatment.

I think it's absolutely absurd to suggest that the average life span of black men going up is what motivated them to suggest raising it. That's bat shyte crazy talk.

She needs to stop going on the black panthers website.

Don't worry dummy judger, you won't have to wear your diminutive tinfoil hat for long, cause the world is going to end next month.

I don't know how it will end, but I suspect that since black men are living to long and the evil white men in congress just decided that the only way to stop them from living so long is to destroy the world.

The Mayans figured this out years ago, but you knew all this already ... didn't ya. Heck you are probably posting safely from your bunker. HOw's the WiFi, in that thing, anyway?

Right. And we never let black men die of complications of syphillus, and we never let them transmit it unknowingly to their partners and children.

Why do you think our government doesn't do what other governments do?

Our government also had sailors, most of whom where white, scrub down radioactive boats after the bikini atoll testings. This was after they saw what radiation did to the Japanese. They did this not for science (which doesn't make it right ... not saying that) but only because our government had it out for white sailors, rite?

Suggesting that the fact that the black male average life expectancy rose is what motivated Romney and Ryan to want to raise the eligibility age is nucking futs.

I've disagreed with many things, but I've never thought you unreasonable that I can recall ... I've always chalked it up to reasonable minds can disagree about many things. However, with this, you are jumping to wild conclusions. You remind me of the ancient aliens guy who says that the pyramids were built buy aliens because of some goofy convoluted mathematical analogies (the number of stairs in the pyramid, divided by the number of stones in the pyramid equals 10,000 therefore it necessarily means that aliens built the pyramids).

I can only imagine if black men had to clean those ships. We'd still be hearing about it.

Furthermore, Angela just because of their were long running syphilis experiments done on blacks doesn't mean that every harebrained conspiracy theory against blacks is true.

Have you ever watch the show "dark matters" on the science channel ... guess what awful experiments were done on white people too. The only difference being that white people generally don't internalize every bad thing that has ever happens to any white person and act like it happened to them, even if it happened more than a hundred years ago, and act like a collective group of victims, even when as individuals they haven't been victims.

Oh please. You sound pretty racist. But you don't realize that.

It's not that blacks are acting like victims. it's that they have LOTS of reason to mistrust the government. The proven ways our government has stabbed them in the back for so long, and in so many ways, just makes them more willing to believe it's happening even when it's not.

Look. The *leaders* of the GOP are racist women-haters. Your party's platform makes that clear. Put these men into political power and they'll do whatever they want, to whomever they want. They've been doing it for a long time.

Sounds to my that you are say that blacks do see themselves as victims even when they are not. Which is exactly what sub said.

Well, I exposed myself earlier (you would have been impressed), Sub is calling Red a tinfoil head for thinking that SSN age is linked to the life expectancy of black males, and the Giants kicked ass on Sunday.

I can expose myself again if you're curious.

Co-incident timing does not equal causation.

Tuskegee is a non sequitur in this context

I don't think it has to do with black men in general. I think they keep raising it up to a point where the highest percentage will die before collecting and they can still get away with having it at that age.

It's not racist to point out the truth. If black sailors had cleaned those ships instead of white people, you'd never hear the end of it ... just like you keep going on an on about syphilis experiments. It's almost as if you feel the government has never done anything bad to white people or groups of white people.

By saying the government has stabbed "them" in the back for so long, you also only prove my point that many blacks (and you, apparently) see any offense to any black or a few of them as an offense to all of them, no matter when it took place.
