Hey Joachim - Race? Low income? Still at a loss? Well, what about absent fathers and the total breakdown of the family in minority communities? Did THAT ever occur to anyone at "Connecticut Voices for Children'? Or does a revelation like that conflict with the left's agenda?

Whites need to take responsabilty for decades of hate and abuse of people of color. Why are more blacks in jail then whites? Why the gap in education? Why the income difference? Racism, sadly, is alive and well :(

A "woe is me" attitude will get you nowhere. Hard work and dedication to something will.

I recently helped a young student apply to Housatonic Community College.Much to my surprise the financial aid he received from Uncle Sam was 100%.The money paid for full tuition, books, and with spending money left over.Can't beat that!

His family income was close to middle class. Hmm? Maybe no more excuses?

Last time I checked the President of the United States is a black man.

I've been reading your posts recently, and I've determined that they must be satirical.

when is "a brother can't get a break " going to end? a "brother" made it to the highest office in the land through hard work and dedication. that should've ended this piteful excuse that has been going on forever. everyone should be responsible for ALL the choices we make in life. a "brother" has proven where hard work can bring you. an example for ALL of us to follow.

Because the minorities commit the crimes. If you can't afford a really good attorney - don't commit a crime! Stop blaming race for your stupidity and criminal acts. Get a job - even if it is cleaning outhouses. Do something with your life and stop blaming the white man.
Minorities can get anything, for free! Did you know that students in Bridgeport get free breakfast, free lunch, don't pay for SAT's, don't pay college application fees, have 12 different groups helping them in high school, and get 90% of their college tuition funded for them? Now, go ask a white kid from the suburbs how much he paid for all that these kids get for free. The opportunities are there. They just have to WORK for it.

Why does everything have to come down to Race? Everyone is given a chance for school, but some choose not to attend, pay attention, behave or do their required homework assignments. Work is available but some choose not to because the job titles are not prestigious enough. Why drive a crappy car that others might judge you as being poor, instead dump all your cash in a upscale ride with the rims to show your so called wealth. Why save money to buy a house, when low income housing and Section 8 is available. If race is such an issue and we are talking about "MINORITIES", how come the stats aren’t hitting the Indian, Korean, Chinese or Middle Eastern Minorities??? Put the blame where it belongs, on you, yourselves. I went through the Free Public School System and work the remedial jobs during school years.....hate to be brag, but I came out just Fine.

Wake up and quit asking for hand outs. Give yourself Respect and then you don't have to worry about others "Dissing you". By the way, learning to speak English is the first step to a better way of life, especially if you were born in the U.S.A.

So true - absentee parents "my babies daddy" instead of husband.(oh, and each kid has a different father). Parents not helping their kids learn and do well in school. Parents whose example is violence, drug and alcohol use, and laziness.

Stop blaming the white man. Black men and women have done great things because they work.

Amen - did you notice that everything is in English and Spanish. That is discrimination. What about all of the people who come to this country speaking a language other than English or Spanish? They work hard to learn English. People will not learn English and do well if we keep putting things in Spanish too. Stop being lazy and learn English.

The only reason why he is Prez, is because his White side, gave ups to his Black side and didnt try to supress a 1/2 Black man Down.

The Man was and is a Hard Worker!!! and that is the only reason why he is in office to represent this great Nation.

I can think of at least one other reason for those things.

Just out of curiosity, what was the breakdown in the respective median net worths of, say, Gentiles and non-Gentiles in Connecticut and New York-- and, why were the latter not considered to be a minority for such statistics as these when they are for the purpose of, say, hate-crime legislation? That might change the overall disparity between majority and minorities just a tad, might it not?

As for the "lib dem" in Stamford-- why not Hartford, I wonder?-- should 49 out of every 50 convicted black robbers be set free to make up for the fact that American blacks are about fifty times more likely, per capita, to be convicted of robbery than a so-called Asian American is?(Funny how we racist whites are so successful in ruining blacks' and Hispanics' lives, yet we fail so miserably when it comes to Asians....)

The difference is, is that the "Asian Families" has "Family Values" and a sense of pride. They try their best to rise up, out of the shadows. Do the Asians that were discriminated against during WW2 cry about the fact that they were places in prison camps? NO! They do well in school and fight the White Man for the jobs at hand and the Education to be had (Then they get banned from attending colleges where there are too many smart asians are pushing the quota system out of wack as in California, hahahah). Get real, it is PERSONAL DRIVE and not the color of your skin that are keeping certain individual out of the economic race. If you work hard and try to get an education, no race issues will hold you back from rising to the top. The crutched of using race as a support for your own lack of self worth has to be taken away. As for jails being filled with Blacks and Hispanics, some rather steal than to work for what they have. Forget about being an Uncle Tom and think in the lines of being what Uncle Sam has installed for you. All can be equal if all try their best in life.

I did what few people do, I had them divide the studies in real minority numbers. Truth be told, and I was one advised to do this, take hispanics and mark them as whites, regardless of their actual racial makeup. Please, don't talk the crap you talk.

I finally realized once I grew up that these polls are marked to fail. Only in the latter years did they take a turn because others woke up as well. White caucasians, anglo-europeans, are the highest welfare cases across the nation, bar none, than any other. Whites, anglo-europeans, are the highest seeking government help of any type than any other race across the USA.

Highest of accussed job stealing Hispanic illegals. Highest of unemployment, blacks. Highest of schooling both blacks and hispanics are struggling that one. Highest penalized in crimes, blacks and hispanics.

When the numbers were revised recently White anglo-european descent remain the highest welfare cases across the nation, yet were the lowest criminals, in as far as penalized crimes. The blacks and hispanics are the highest condemned and executed, across the nation. The most well to do are still anglo-european whites and those so called white American, hispanics and blacks are still not counted amongst them, not any longer. Native Americans are considered still almost as close as to illegals.

God bless
