"About 43 percent of children in Rochester live in poverty, the seventh-highest rate in the country. Census data show that about 60 percent of the city’s black children do not have a father living at home — something that also affects household income. Those challenges seem to take a greater toll on boys than girls, with young black men being suspended, expelled or placed in special education at higher rates than any other group of students."

Must be racism that is causing these kids to be so bad and their parents to not give a hoot right?

It doesnt affect young black women that there are no dads in the homes, because they hook up at 15 with older guys and brag "I gots me a man", I dont need no daddy but a baby daddy.

And young men drop out of school because they can see that their daddies and grandpaps are keepin it real and livin life high with no HS diploma. Just need to learns to spell enough to fill out that Welfare for Life application.

One thing we all know is that throwing BILLIONS of dollars has done nothing but make it worst.Time to say:yes we will help you out in the time of need,but not for a lifetime.If anyone is of able to work they should have to work in some public sector job while they are collecting taxpayer money.The taxpayers have to work to pay for them,the least they can do is to pick up the sides of the interstates,parks,city streets,ect.Drug tests should be done and if they are dirty they should be cut off for life.They shoud be made to get at the very least a GED so they can get a job and have a little pride.As long as people keep having anything handed to them they won't try to advance in life.Just the way I think.
