True statements, but five unqualified black people do not speak for the many more who are qualified. Now whether you want to believe that or not is your business. I thoroughly agree that black folk have to get their out of birth wedlock rate lower and black men need to step up and be real leaders in their community. You have totally got a point their. Unfortunately, society cannot really police or legislate morals and free will. Euthanization would work but who of us want to be Nazis? Who of us has that right to decide another persons morals?
I agree with everything you have said - with one caveat: while we cannot legislate morality - we can EFFECT it. It seems like an out of control systemic spiral these days - more kids born to weak if non-existent parenting, breed more of the same. I don't know what the answer is - but I do know that windbags like Nancy Pelosi and her "discussion of race" wont even begin to scratch the surface of the problem or the possible answers.

And perhaps more damaging: most people don't see or interact as much as they should with the large number of blacks that don't fit the above reality. I work FOR any number of blacks that are educated, smart, hardworking, and decent - their children are parented and will most likely do well.

So with all your doom and gloom, what are you saying? That minorities are sole agents of America's demise lol?
Absolutely by the numbers!!! What you didn’t know this already? America as we knew it is DONE!!!!! Guarantee America will turn into a society like Puerto Rico Crime/Murder/Trash Welfare addicts etc. P.R. doesn’t have a Racism Culture problem like the States, but still the Dem Welfare killed the Puerto Rican culture in P.R.

This is NOT my opinion. My Statement is SOLEY based on Numbers. For instance last year I sat down with a U.S. Congressman because I was pissed the Americans ARENT getting the numbers we need to know, REAL America Report Card... 99% of that reason is because of the Libs rubber stamping Racism when you give FACTS about their voter base “. Below just for ONE Example of my research in Numbers, By they way 80% of my research comes from Gov Web site and then corroborated with news etc for base numbers. Remember when Obama got the Kids etc about we the 99% and the cost of the war etc. Well that was 2011. So lets actually LOOK at the Cost to run the Country and Who pays that cost..

Lest start with the basic for Job/tax base. You’ve head in the news unemployment rate and once in a blue moon ‘Labor force participation rate” which is roughly 64% BUT what about the Next 10 years. According to the Bureau Labor Statistics”(BLS) they have Labor force participation rate broken down by education attainment Professor / Doctorate etc. A person with no High School diploma is a measly 46.6% participating in the labor force. Now lest look at the rest of the Numbers to see how many will NOT have a Hoghschool Diploma or that just squeaked by.

The fastest growing population in the U.S. for years has been the Hispanics/Blacks close behind ( baby factories).

In 2011 OVER 50% of births were minorities Close to HALF of then will have flunked or quit school. Just that year because of this Medicaid paid for 48% of ALL U.S. births. Imagine that welfare costs..

Refresh. Black HS Grad rate 50%
Hispanic H.S. grad rate, 55%
Both cultures combined is 28% of the U.S. pop and Climbing at an alarming rate.

Census 2010 look at age groups alone. From 2010 to 2020 there will be 45 million kids in that age group that will have turned 18 Close to HALF will have flunked or quit school. HOW can America FEED them!!!!.

Look at 2011 Federal Budget, 63% of the Federal budget are checks written to individual that we receive no services from,

Lets plug in the Biggest most educated earners and tax contributors are retiring. A HUGE tax base loss. People coming up behind them are LOW education too many Min wage earners and like I said before the Minorities have NOT kept one copper penny in the U.S. because of LOW education and baby factories. Even if both these parents work they still be Gov assistance.

To further my facts in what happens to a Society Hooked on Dems Welfare, Puerto Rico U.S. citizens. 3.8 million. Over 40% QUIT school over 60% receive gov assistance Their collected Island tax is 9 billion US sends down 18 Billion. Puerto fiscal Budget is 28.6 billion for 3.8 pop. Comparable. Pa pop 12.5 million. Pa budget 27.6 billion. Ready Pa education and welfare account for 76.4% of the state budget. Welfare is 10 billion, Education is 10.5 billion

Kallark27 The problem is the Liberals WONT even tell the voter base/Minorities how bad it and in short time because of their Population/baby factories that the Money will RUN OUT PEROID !!

I,m a numbers guy and look at LONG term numbers to track the U.S Facts and

All I have to say is watch a few Hardcore Pawn episodes. These are the citizens of Detroit raising the next generation. If these citizens have no class or tact how will the next generation behave? I am disgusted watching this show because of the ignorant behavior displayed at a place of business on camera! I can only imagine their behavior in everyday circumstances.

Detroit's prosperity in the early 20th century was almost entirely due to the automotive industry. The undeniable truth is that America lost its edge in the business due to the Asian car companies' innovation to making better products at cheaper prices. Thus, cuts were made for the big three to stay afloat which lead to unemployment, poverty and population decline.

You want to fix Detroit, improve the quality of American made cars & reclaim the top market share.

What's happening in the D will soon be happening in your area too, can't wait to see you talk shit then ha ha ha ha White people are great at playing the blame game. They have been trashing the city since the 20's & 30's. If it's white then it's ok but if it's black it's bad. If whites care so much about Detroit (which I believe they really don't, as evident by watching them flee like cowards to the suburbs) why don't they offer to fix Detroit themselves? I mean clearly blacks are bad and whites know better. Where's all that white supremacy when it's needed? Truth be told, if it were whites still in charge, the city would have white crackheads instead of black ones.

We need to save our cash for a move when the inner city extends its crime arm to our area. Helping now would be throwing good money after bad. There would be something positive in helping if I could be sure the residents would stay in Detroit and not try to be my neighbors. Unfortunately, blacks don't even like other blacks. They seek to get away from each other. Thankfully, I can afford not to be caught in the middle.

I might be ready to throw a drowning man a life-preserver. I'm not about to buy them a yacht, unless of course they would take it far away and not return.

Are black people attempting to fix these problems? Of course they are! Unfortunately, with people like you, NOTHING black folk do to help themselves would even slightly appease you lol. So I'm going to drop it right now. I have no time nor patience to argue with you and people who think like you over what you think you know about black people.

Hey dumba$$, what white person would want to remain with a racist mayor in Coleman Young? Any white candidate doesn't stand a chance in a city with just over 80% black population. Polls have been conducted which clearly states roughly 50% blacks wouldn't vote for a white mayor (yes, and whites are the racist ones.- rolls eyes) Once again, shut the f*ck up because you don't know shit. You're simply a tripe spewing behind the keyboard badass who lies and cowers when confronted.

If blacks were going to amount to anything or do anything, they would have done so in the last 100+ years. We have to settle for the few that do excel and resign ourselves to supporting the rest in the most efficient manner possible. You have group homes and high density housing. That only lasts a few years before it's all destroyed. We should look for the cheapest way to feed and clothe them and provide entertainment while providing ourselves with the best security from them. Obviously, welfare clients are content with a few basics like food stamps and a cell phone. Allow these things and prevent abuses like duplication of services. Meanwhile, the rest of society can keep moving ahead socially and economically.

<quoted text>Tough times calls for tough reality This is just snippet of Facts in my 7 years if research

U.S. Report Card and what people donÂ’t want to address, talk about or fix

2011 US federal budget 63% of the total federal budget were checks written to individuals that the Government receives no services from, more then the cost of the war that year That does not include Social Security checks

2011 Welfare is the largest cost to U.S. taxpayers more then the War which is the Second largest cost is U.S. budget.. Third largest cost in U.S. budget is money borrowed from other countries which is mostly from China . War cost can be cut back by the billions. Let me see billions in cutbacks on welfare without riots breaking out

50.4% of all births in July 2011 were minorities

48% of all U.S. births were paid by Medicaid in 2011

US Censes, between 2010 and 2020 over 45 million kids will have turned 18.

Over half of those kids will be minorities.

. H.S. Graduation rates averaged, Asians. 80% Non Hispanics Whites 75%, Hispanics 55% African Americans 50%

Gov site, Labor Force Participation Rates for non HS Diploma is 46.6% the other percent needs welfare

More then half of the U.S. births not only born with Taxpayers Medicaid over 50% will have used some type of Gov. Welfare before retirement age

Medicaid usage by race are 2007 as follows

Out of the White pop (63.4%)Â…Medicaid usage 43%
Out of the Black pop (13.1%)Â… Medicaid usage 22%
Out of the Hispanic pop (15%).. Medicaid usage 28%

Hispanic population doubled in the last 10 years

US has approx 40 million illiterate adults, approx 13% of U.S pop
.
Calf pop 30 million 33% of children in California will not finish high school.

U.S. H.S. Graduation Rates started its decline in 1969 five years after Dem Pres Johnson signed the bill “War on Poverty” which 48 years later did very little for the 26 Trillion spent since then.

Lyndon Johnson “War on Poverty” was enacted in 1964, which 5 years after all US HS Grads rates declined

According to Pew research Center, illegal crossing took off in 1970 soon after the SSI law, which stated under special circumstances an Alien / Immigrant can receive Supplement Security Income ( SSI) This started the huge push in Mexican border crossing having U.S. Anchor babies so illegal mother can get SSI

According to USA news of the top 50 biggest School District you have to go through 15 of those just to get to a 50% Graduation rate. Detroit is 47% illiterate; Detroit School Grads rates at 21.7% Then you have schools like Roberson H.S, Chicago, out of 800 students 116 were pregnant in 08/09

According to the Armed Forces preliminary test nearly 1 in 4 flunk the basic. 75 percent of those aged 17 to 24 don’t even qualify to take the test because they are physically unfit, have a criminal record or didn’t graduate high school. 23 percent of recent high school graduates don’t get the minimum score needed on the enlistment test to join any branch of the military. Questions are often basic, such as:“If 2 plus x equals 4, what is the value of x?” The average score for blacks is 38 and for Hispanics is 44, compared to whites’

Gov site ( 2008) Medium Income by Race and ethnicity/Tax base. Because of the huge family sizes and low education close to half of all U.S. workers gets all their money back after April 15th After that then adding Gov assistance take out the other end the minorities as a whole have not kept one copper penny in the US tax coffers since 1964 and they are the fastest growing population. If you also add the incarceration rates for minorities and the Real Estate values plummeting because of the Ghettos getting bigger the U.S. cities will be forever bankrupt
Thanks! Great data facts! Can't wait to see 2012 and 2013 results posted next year... if the USA is still around. LOL

You speak of work that black people want to do - yet just the other day my company passed on hiring five black because not one of them could pass the drug and/or background check. We consistently see the evidence that while 75% of blacks are born to single mothers - rarely does anyone speak of that and the relationship therein to the abysmal rate of education among many black kids. Perhaps is missed it, but I rarely if ever see anyone have the courage to say the obvious: stop having kids that you have no economic, maturity, or emotional capacity to raise, help through school, and see them become productive members of the community. In any number of ways - we have to foot the bill for people that don't graduate and then have to be re-educated at an additional cost.

LMFAO! Keeping the mouth shut? LMFAO! POT, KETTLE, BLACK! Your inability to remain silent is overwhelming since you feel the need to be a badass behind the keyboard and spew your tripe. I plan to call you out every time because you're a lying coward. I will let everyone know about your threat of bitch slapping me yet refusing my invitation to try as you lie about not being in the area, which, BTW, would surely mean STFU because Detroit isn't your concern either, stupid f*ck.

BTW, as long as my taxes are used for Detroit, I have every say. You're simply too stupid to realize that.

Come on, liar, what's next?
