Since there are those in this country, that are so greedy, stingy, selfish and filled with hate, that the government had to step in and make laws in order to level the playing field. Of course they resent the Gov. for doing this, it is a shame that people have to be forced to do the right thing. The excuses used are deplorable. Until something in life happens to them to open their eyes, they never change. Hate is the result of fear. Money is the root of all evil so it is probably something to do with the loss of money and material things. Have you ever noticed it is always rich white people that kill themselves over the loss of money not blacks. It is most generally whites that commit white collar crimes (prosecuted w/ slap on the hand) and blacks commit street crimes (dealt w/ more severely).

Teenage pregnancy is higher in states where religious conservatism is practiced, because gawd forbid anyone advocate safe sex. STDs are also more prevalent, along with a myriad of other problems. Seems to me that conservative states need to get their act together.
In a state such as Mississippi, for example, there isn't that much of a disparity between white and black teenage mothers. About 900 more, which considering that in 2005 there were more white people than black - that kind of throws your theory out.
57% of adolescent births in MS are to Blacks.

40% to whites

Sorry, teen pregnancy in MS is a black problem. MS is about 61% white, so black teen births are again disproportionate.

The rate could also be higher because the social conservatism of MS results in more births, while NYC's liberalism results in higher abortions. I certainly don't condone teen pregnancy, but I abhor abortion.

The rates have declined around the national average, proving that it isn't abstinence only ed that is causing the problem.

http://www.hhs.gov/ash/oah/adolescent-health-...

While NY has a lower teen pregnancy rate, it's abortion rate is far higher, and it again is a mainly non-white problem.

And the blacks in MS vote Democrat.

Can you explain why it is that you hate your people and civilization?

The ghost of Leopold II is brought up to excuse the failures of the post-1960 socialist black Congo governments, while minimizing the successful governance of the post-Leopold Belgian government.

at the time it absolutly did. They were property. So the analagy stands. Blacks enslaved themselves. If they had too many slaves they killed them. Slave traders saved their very lives.

17%(917 more births) isn't compelling evidence considering the differences in population. Obviously social and religious conservatism is not working in Mississippi. You may abhor abortion, but considering the poverty rate of Mississippi and the fact that many of these teenage mothers are committing themselves to a poverty-stricken life where they will more than likely suck the teet of programs like WIC, food stamps, etc., I'd say I'd something needs to change.

If you noticed, there is only a 3% difference between white and black women when it comes to repeat births. This is not a color issue - this is a societal issue and the politics and ideology of Mississippi is failing its people.

White women have abortions - always have, always will. They probably have better access to birth control and education, which may speak to a difference in abortion rates. But depending on where the data comes from, white women - especially those of higher income - have GPs or gynecologists they can go to in order to terminate a pregnancy instead of Planned Parenthood. Those occurrences aren't likely reported because it's private medical information.

I would venture to say it's the mentality that you have that leads to dissonance in this world. I don't have a "people." I am no different than anyone else in this world regardless of color.

You are mighty naive or willfully ignorant if you cannot acknowledge the problems white leaders caused in these places and even in this country.

No, just because YOU want to liken a human being to a car does not make the analogy stand. Luckily there were people who existed then and now who understand the difference and act accordingly.

It is repugnant to read your words, to be honest. To say that people sold into slavery were saved? Utterly disgusting. It's obvious had you existed when slavery was legal, you would have been a slaveowner and probably one of those who used the bible to condone and justify your thinking and actions.

They were being sold and traded long before the first white man set foot in Africa. Keep scraping to try to absolve blacks of any responsibility. Some of them will eagerly hop on board with you.

It's not the government's job to level the playing field, it's only their job to protect individual liberties. As far as greed goes, liberals average more in income than conservatives, and they donate less. They've sold you a load and your dumb ass bought it.

I take it that you didn't live the 60's, I did. It was very segregated. I think you were born in the wrong era, living in the 30's and 40's would have suited your mentality better. Better yet go back a couple of hundred. Time has forgotten your kind of ways along w/ some of those other posters on here.

not only me, but the majority of the world thinks black are less than human. Africa is the greatest sourse of slavery now and throughout history. And yes it was be a slave or die. Am i to understand you would rather they were killed outright by their own tribe leaders. And they would be better off in africa today, or are you saying we saved them and they are better off in america today. Remember legal slavery of those born in america was started by a black man named anthony johnson. And for the first six years only blacks were allowed to own blacks. And im agnostic sorry you have poor judgement.

A good dose of some Nat Turner medication would've cured his evil mentality if he were alive back then.
