Isn't that true all across America?

I mean blacks lagging far behind.

Maybe if they put some pep in their step and quit their shuffling and got of CPT(colored peoples time) they might make a little more progress.

excellent article!

people are always talking about the plight of blk american people without considering the ramafications of our historical past that has contributed to our present situations.

i rarely see articles come from a historical perspective when trying speaking on our people.

anyway, why is everyone so focused on us?

ha ha! doo-doo mouth, even though we "lag behind" our white counterparts in a few areas, your people have had WAY more opportunities and time to be further along then what you actually are.

having 20% less assets then a people who did not have to endure slavery, institutional racism, employment discrimination, housing discriminations, etc.. etc... is a MONUMENTAL achievement..and still we rise.

you just keep your "occupy" movements up you dirty peasant. your gonna need all the practice protesting that you can get!
