<quoted text> Believe me that a lot of single black women with kids are young ignorant and ghettoized. I"LL bet you $1000 to 1, that vulgar gangster rap plays daily in those homes, and there's plenty of video games and no books! Not even a Bible are in most of those apartments.
The 'babies momma ' can't cook, balance a checking account, knows zero about government besides a EBT card, and knows zero about black or American history!
I dunno WA. I have known a lot of folks. Some look like that and some don't. I have seen some really young moms grow up very fast--in terms of those things you mention, cooking and taking care of business. But they are swimming upstream. A person can only work so hard and the kinds of jobs you can get without a degree are only going to pay so much.

But to the extent that we continue to live our lives as if the ghetto didn't exist, or everyone who lives there has abundant opportunity to "get out" (and ponder awhile why we put such a premium on "getting out" instead of improving) all we do is ensure that we will continue to have a ghetto and kids who cannot even see (let alone believe in) any other options for their lives.

Ever read any Paolo Friere (Pedagogy of the Oppressed)? He's not an easy read. And righties have a knee-jerk opposition to him. But, his essence (and Jonathon Kozol has picked up on this as well) is that true education cannot occur in an absence of empowerment. We cannot bypass parents and expect to somehow educate their children to be a part of a world to which the parents have been denied admission.

End of the day, jobs cure a lot of ills.

Dude, man up and stop crying like some victim! There's nothing you can do to change how your state administers food cards. If you think blacks are the only ones receiving government aide, think again. People making up to $60k a year can apply for food assistance, if there's four or more in a household in certain states.

Your taxes are being sent to more Arab countries than blacks here. Unless the economy improves more "people of all shades " will apply for government help!

Did you hear the news reports of record profits obtained by US companies without hiring more workers. Did you hear the closing numbers on Wall Street? What do you think would happen to the country if millions more were cut off without a job to replace those affected? Don't be emotional from listening to fat cat millionaires who've never worried how to feed their family.
Companies are not hiring!!! What the hell do you want people to do, dumb ass?

Well duh! You free former semi -slaves from Apartheid with no formal education or social skills, and expect them to conduct themselves like their former oppressors is expecting way too much at this point.
You'd probably get the same results if reservation Indians were put in control of urban cities.

Duh! Why do you think I framed my response the way I did. The last part of your statement would get plenty of yuk, yuk chuckles at a Republican fund raiser.

The first thing the teens need to learn is stop having two, three, and four kids! And yes the parent is often ghettoized and ignorant! Smoking blunts and screwing drug guys one after the other. One goes to jail and another takes his place. The kids are being taught this is 'normal' lifestyle because it's all they know.

The young mothers become so hardened and ghetto, no decent black guy wants to date them to try and make a normalized family structure with them, because the girl is too stupid to see when help has arrived, and chase the good guy away because of her ghettoized attitude.

I know of several black accomplished women who remain single because the men they like are thugs and don't want to settle down. They think the educated conservative types are 'boring' and stiff.

How can an so-called educated woman crave a slick street type thug over a educated serious brother? It's too much immaturity going on in the black community. I call those type of women educated fools! They want a fantasy man ...street smart but highly educated. They can't have both!

Always blaming and making excuses. Must be the default when a 20 to 30 point difference in intelligence is faced with an obvious fact where that same deficient mind cannot except it. underperforms. Keep blaming and excuse making--its genetics baby.

They aren't hiring because most aren't qualified and can't pass drug tests.

Reality check! Those receiving EBT and medicaid are already required to work 20 hours a week or attend school for those benefits. That was settled by law in 1996, your boy Gingrich made it clear.
