50% over all 90% among blacks. We don't blame blacks we blame their white masters in the democrap party who created welfare to buy their votes (see: president LB Johnson) and destroyed their culture in the process.
The great experiment to learn what happens when all the material needs of a person is met and all moral obligations are erased has been a finished.
We learn they will vote democrat and contribute nothing else.
Ok, wait, 50 percent of all marriages fail, and somehow, that's proof, that lack of black marriages,(12 percent of the population by the way), is ruining a country of almost 400 million people???

Go back to middle school and learn how to add!!!

12 percent of 400000000,(us pop.) is about 48 million.

The remainder of the population (minus blacks) is about 350 million.

split that number in half, and you get around 176 million split households and single parent families. There are nearly FOUR times as many split white households in America!

I fail to see your point...tthat is, outside the fact that you're a fearmonger. Oh, wait....

Worthless. His policies have produced almost no jobs. At this point in Reagan's first term, he had created millions of jobs, Obama; just a few thousand. A horrible record.
Barry, you suck. Any idiot chatterbox can spit out complaints, but geez, do you have any facts to back you up?
