The root of the problem lies in the disintegration of the black family. Young boys without fathers grow up to become angry young men who have no interest in education and no other recourse but gangs and drugs. Single moms keep having children they can't afford and the cycle continues.<quoted text>What's your point? That racial divide between white people still exist today! Democrats of today, the old republicans of yesterday or, the liberators were always for freedom of all people. The democrats of old, the new republican party( new as in after 1964) has always been of oppressive nature, & still is. Look at y'all stance on minimum wage, even after statistics from Coscos show business increases when you pay your employeesmore money. Y'all like Wal-Mart, are still reciting statistics from 2004, slanted with a republican bias but, Coscos is undeniable evidence that refutes your data. Time has continued, years have passed but, nothing has changed, only a swap of party titles & symbols. This thread is also undeniable evidence. Look who's party has overwhelming blatant racism &, who's party is still playing liberators! Moral is, there's good & bad folks in every race. You just happen to be on the bad side of history &, the present!
Why doesn't Obama, Al Sharpton and black leaders address the problems in the black community instead of placing blame elsewhere?
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told a congregation in 1961, "We know that there are many things wrong in the white world, but there are many things wrong in the black world, too. We can't keep on blaming the white man. There are things we must do for ourselves."
Obama had the perfect opportunity to repeat those words in his speech the other day.
So why didn't he? Why is the obvious so difficult for many blacks to talk about?
