Nice summary post, Jack.<quoted text>
Nice post....reality. In addition, no one denies the reality of Dr. Ben Carson, Colin Powell, Bill Cosby, Allen West, or the millions of blacks that have excelled in the American culture, some in the military, some in private business, EXCEPT the inner city black culture. There's no race issue here, except that America's inner city black community was sold a Great Society fairy tale that said "something for nothing" was a good deal. Doesn't matter what color you are, something for nothing, if provided long enough, will destroy you. Like it or not, you don't learn how to be a man from your Mother, you learn it from your Dad...and so few young black kids have one. It affects all races....but yes, we have cultural issues that are coming to a head.
The civil rights movement (of the 50s & early 60s) has been hijacked by demagogues (why bother to list them?) whose goal is not is get EQUALIT--but to get EVEN. Inner-city politicians dance to this tune. The hatred of whitey masks the perpetual moral filth and poverty that Liberalism has bestowed to our urban centers and ghettoized them. The Liberal Plantation is alive & well. Tragic.
