NTRP, from the 1960s till now, african Americans have been GIVEN trillions & trillions of dollars in aid. And this aid has comprised of welfare, heat assistance, rent assistance, housing aid, TANEF, Section 8, AFDC, child care/day care, foster care, food stamps, free school lunches, health care aid, educational aid, phone bill aid, transportation aid, affirmative action/quotas, set asides, federal jobs, etc..
And actually, the african American "family" was relatively "intact" prior to the 1960s. However, ex. president, leftist democrat Lyndon Baines Johnsons welfare & entitlement society (aka/ala --- "Great Society") is what REALLY "ignited" the break down of the african American "family" & what REALLY "ignited" the TREMENDOUS increase in crime, high school drop outs (both boys & girls), illegitimate birth rates, african American girls having kids at ages 12 --- 16, welfare & entitlement dependency, laziness, insubordination, dead beat fathers & single, unwed mothers who neglect their kids in the african American "community".
We don't necessarily disagree. Yes, a tremendous amount of money has been spent, but I believe it has been badly misspent. Rather than moving people out of poverty, rather than razing ghetto-like communities and housing projects that fence people in, that money could have been far better spent in community based programs that provided jobs and offered better educational resources than the poorly staffed and underfunded schools in the inner cities. My gripe is that police departments haven't really worked hand in hand with poor residents to help root out that small percent which are criminal and who keep everybody else held hostage.

I don't think throwing money away, giving a handout and saying come back again next month for your allowance and go away and shut up until then is very helpful. It's like enabling a drunk by only b*tching at them, but allowing that person to continue drinking in your house. We (not you/not me personally) have told ourselves that we did our best to "fix" it - with MONEY. Money doesn't cure everything, and spending it the wrong d*mned way sure doesn't help.

The old expression "Give a man fish and you will feed him for a day, but give a man a line, pole and bait, and he will feed himself for life." holds true. We did that in Appalachia to some extent. The government paid for looms and woodworking tools, other crafts needs, and the people of Appalachia used their talents to earn their ways in an area where there WERE NO JOBS. Then, the first lady of the State marketed those crafts around the country and helped those people find outlets for their product. Good stuff.

We must restructure completely our welfare system and create a system of hope and movement. Nobody rides "free". People with computers can work from home, and they don't have to have childcare. They can work around their children's schedule - even if that is late at night. Just know that when people work for what they have, they create self-esteem and dignity and a sense of accomplishment and empowerment. OK. Nuf' said. LOL

I think that everybody should just live their life and move on. Yes, it was a terrible thing, no we shouldn't live our life's on it. I'm white and I still don't forgive the past, but I'm moving on. That's what you guys should do instead of fighting! Live.

Right. But its completely safe to say that many a white woman has been raped by a black man, that many a car has been carjacked by a black man, many a white man's tax dollars are going straight to prisons to feed blacks living high on the hog in prisons.My place of business is constantly under threat of break-ins by blacks. Our neighborhood's value is dropping because blacks are moving in infiltrating the homes and schools, therefore , crime is skyrocketing. Why is it that blacks can't live peacefully and in a non-violent and productive manner?

I mean really, the first ones that invade a neighborhood seem to be nice, but less than 10 years later , the other 90% start moving in and we see drug crimes race up, theft goes up, murder goes up, trashiness goes up (cars on blocks, weeds in the yard, businesses close, houses go unpainted, thugs walk the streets and sit on porches).

When is this going to stop??? When are they ever going to stop the cycle of abusing the system and getting real lives?

Moore's were black, in case you didn't know. White people are white because they were cursed by God,just like God cursed others as well, but with other curses. Yes its true Black people are the begining of true civilization. The proof is the works of God, such as The strongest seed on earth is a Black Man, mix it with any other and it stays black, unlike any other person on earth.
I guess that will shut up some of these bad white people.
Just remember , The Jews in Isreal is not the true Jews either, Most of them are the jews that came from Norther Europe such as Germany Russia, and other parts of the region where Hitler was doing his thing.Blacks are more Jewish than most of them there. True fact, Falaous Jews,are from the seed of Abraham. Check the spelling for me.All white people are NOT bad.

I have no reason to apoligize for black people and the thing that happened to them in the past, I had nothing to do with it. Anyone that knows history knows the American Indians were just as persecuted as black people. My ancestry is American Indian and I am proud of it. I hold no grudges toward the people that took thier land, as like I had no part in what happened to the black people. I am white, have black friends, mixed grandchildren and a black doctor. The past is past and there is nothing we can do about it now.
