Given that whites have an IQ 15 to 18 points higher than blacks, this is not surprising.
The real problem is that schools in minority communities fail to recognize the fact that they are dealing with below average raw material.

Yahoo story:
Rena W. is a 35-year-old small-business owner -- the co-owner, actually, of an Atlanta hair salon. She works hard but doesn't make enough money to purchase health insurance.
A mother of three, Rena has high cholesterol and hypertension. Last month, she suffered a mini-stroke, a calamity that brought confusion, a brief bout of aphasia and a trip to the emergency room. She has recovered, but now owes the hospital $17,000 for her treatment, a debt that she says will take her years to repay.
Rena is just the sort of hardworking American for whom the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- routinely called "Obamacare" -- is designed. She can now purchase a policy that will pay for the medical care she needs and insure against any more medical emergencies.(If only she'd had that insurance a bit sooner, she would not be burdened by debt.)
But for reasons that are hard to grasp, Republicans are apparently willing to throw the American economy over the cliff -- and to further destabilize an already-shaky global economy, as well -- just to keep Rena from being able to buy affordable health insurance. If the government shutdown doesn't force President Obama to forsake his signature legislative accomplishment, many Republicans say, they will refuse to lift the debt ceiling, sending the country into default for the first time in history.
Lots of "Rena" types are what will doom ObamaKKKare....people who rack up tens of thousands in medical bills every year and pay almost no premiums....

Several days before the federal government was partially closed, President Barack Obama announced he would not negotiate with Congress on the federal budget or the debt ceiling.

When specifically asked if he shouldn't consider offering at least some compromise - given that the GOP was willing to compromise with him - Obama said, "I shouldn't have to offer anything."

Yup, all the fault of the GOP.

WASHINGTON -- WASHINGTON (AP)— A man set himself on fire on the National Mall in the nation's capital as passers-by rushed over to help douse the flames, officials and witnesses said Friday afternoon.
The reason for the self-immolation was not immediately clear and the man's identity was not disclosed. But it occurred in public view, on a central national gathering place, in a city still rattled by a mass shooting last month and a high-speed car chase outside the U.S. Capitol on Thursday that ended with a woman being shot dead by police.
The man on the Mall suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to the hospital, said District of Columbia fire department spokesman Tim Wilson.
He was standing by himself in the center portion of the Mall when he emptied the contents of a red gasoline can on himself and set himself on fire moments later, said Katy Scheflen, who witnessed it as she walked across the area. Police say they responded around 4:20 p.m. Friday.
Scheflen said passing joggers took off their shirts in an effort to help douse the flames, and the man was clearly alive as the fire spread. A police department spokesman said he was conscious and breathing at the scene. MedStar Washington Hospital Center tweeted that the man was taken there and he was in critical condition.
"There was not a lot people could do because it was a gasoline fire," Scheflen said.
She said he may have said something before he acted "but it was nothing intelligible." She said she did not see him holding any signs before he set himself ablaze and that there was another man with a tripod set up near him but did not mention if he was filming.
Lt. Pamela Smith of the U.S. Park Police, which is investigating along with the D.C. police department, said: "I'm not aware of any signage or any articulation of any causes."
The D.C. police department has dispatched its violent crimes branch, which responds to cases in which a person suffers serious injury.
So? He killed himself; he didn't kill anyone else.

You must be from Kentucky too. Don't you realize that you're paying for it already and have been for years because people can't afford health insurance? They go to the ER and can't pay?

Small-city police chiefs around here earn $200K.

An experienced engineer at $125K married to an experienced teacher at $75K would easily earn $200K just by hitting the median for their professions.

You are consistent, consistently dumb. I am on a government program[s], a program[s] I paid into the program{s] and still do for more than 50 years. It is my money. You on the other hand are on Medicaid, you are a moocher. I also paid in to a company retirement plan, a company I worked for more than 30 years and I am collecting those benefits also.

Good morning, leftist phags!!

Are you enjoying the celebration of the greatest event in history (the shutdown of useless elements of the fed)? I've decided we'll get rid of it for a while longer; everything is going pretty smoothly in responsible States. Once we completely gut the Parks dept, all national monuments will be run by individual States (as it should be).

I think I'll ride around the national forest barricade again on Monday, just because I can...:-)
