It appears we have another feel good article attempting to excuse or give more acceptance to the selfish and stupid choice of having out of wedlock children. While the author's intent was to dispel myths, some of the harsh realities should have been mentioned as well.

The problem I have with this "article", is that the data shows otherwise. Most delinquent children come from homes headed by single moms...

I agree; asparagus offends me too. Why can't we tax these offensive vegetables to support the production of something that our tiny caucus of bias finds more appealing??

What ever offence you & those like you Axe inherit is merely Devine retribution.

And as far as I can see, you have yet to be compensated FULLY.

I guess this is whats meant when describing THE MOST HIGH's ability to anger slow. But, remember, HIS delays are not HIS deinals...pay day is some day! ;{)

So you believe in punishing the child for the sins of the father? No one alive today ever owned a slave. Except in Africa where the practice continues today.

Years ago I worked for social service and from our records it was white on wefare more than blacks. Blacks didn't wanted to stay in trailor parks.

Why has god denied you the ability to think? Do you think he's pissed off that you were his "chosen" people, yet thousands upon thousands of years later, you continue to suck?

OH
MY
GOD!

This kind of truth is simply unacceptable in the African American (LOL) forum.

You know, it's so strange, I search and searched, and there was no box on my census form this year for "German American."

Don't I get some free federal goodies for being...from somewhere else?
