A news study shows that miniorities are "disproportionatly drawn into the criminal justice system". That's a politically correct way of saying that they get busted more often. Hey...here's a solution: stop committing crimes!

I suppose that these folks would like the Federal Govt. to dump few billion dollars into a program to assist inner-city youth. Let me spell it out for you. We (white people) simply don't have any money left to create even one more "program" to try to mould minorities into better citizens; we're broke, tapped out, picked clean.

We've been dumping billions of dollars into that vast empty abyss called "social welfare" since 1964, and we've gotten nothing in return. You have given us not one reason to believe that our investment was worthwile. Our schools are worse, our inner-cities are more violent and crime-ridden than at any time in history, even the self-inflicted health ills (STDs, obesity, etc) of the minority community have reached epidemic proportion.

Nope, my frieds and I have paid for all the free college, food-stamps, welfare, child-support, HEAP, housing subsidies, job programs, Medicaid, bus-passes, STD clinics, Bookmobiles, free cellphones, daycare, job training, and drug rehab that we can afford.

You know what REALLY gets people up and running? Waking up in a freezing house with an empty belly! Yep, that'll light a fire under your a$$ real quick.

Social welfare has not worked...
one example: Policeman/woman stationed at public
housing apartments due to crime therein.

Baby daddies....joke...we pay for the welfare of
the babies not the baby daddies. We worry that
we have to make enough money to take care of our
own children.
While there are good families in the inner city
there is no family life for many young children.
The whole thing has to be revamped.

Many black chicks,
have had many black dicks.
Its a fact that you cannot dispute,
Leroy gives 'em a smooch,
Then heads straight for their cooch,
Nine months later,
They're swimmin' in loot.
