A troubling trend for black males students? That is only a symptom of the problem

I'm still waiting for black liberals who are subserviently loyal to the Democratic Party to tell me specifically how liberalism and the Democratic Party has been an asset to the black community especially among young black males. I viewed the segment last week on the "troubling trend of young black males" on the CBS Nightly News. I just had to sigh, because this all could have been avoided decades ago. Also, it's all true. I'm pleased that the liberals over at CBS News decided to run that story, because if any conservative leaning media outlet would have done an identical story, they would have been called racists for doing so.




A study came out showing that 72% of black children born in the United States are born out of wedlock. That is the highest of any racial group. Black children are being born into the world without any male parental role models to guide them. The CBS segment covered the symptoms, but they didn't cover the "source" for the creation of the symptoms. When young black women who are single, living in poverty and lack any morality gives birth to a child, what do anyone truly expect is going to happen to that child especially if that child is a boy? When the mother doesn't give a dam and the so called father is out impregnating another young black female, this is what society gets. It's just a fact. I scratch my head in bewilderment, when I hear weak minded blacks criticism of the arrest of young black males for selling drugs. Their arrangement is that blacks are sentenced to harsher sentences for selling crack cocaine then whites are for selling powder cocaine. My thinking is that young black males are selling poison to other blacks, so I have no sympathy for them in regards to whether they are sentenced unfairly or not. Hell, black rappers glorify black drug dealers selling poison in their communities for crying out loud. To be frankly honest, I don't see a reversal of this problem in my life time. The genie has been let out of the bottle. Morality has been replaced with the "ghetto" mindset. This is a video clip from the comic strip the boondocks. The episode is about what would Dr. Martin Luther King say if he was alive in the present day to witness the shape of blacks in America. I wish I could just laugh and say that it isn't true.



but I know it's true.



The so called black leaders, liberal politicians and the media really don't want to dive head deep into the "real problems" in the black community. First, they could care less as long as blacks come out and vote every election cycle. Second, they don't want the truth known that it was liberalism that was the genesis for what we have to deal with now.

I couldn't add anymore commentary to what I must sadly say is true. What's even more disgusting to me than this troubling trend for young black males is how some blacks have surrendered to the very racial stereotypes that are holding them back. I've seen some videos that stereotype blacks that I believe would get said users banned from youtube if they were white.

Like "Black women dropped the Ball" that video is not only racist but it's very misogynistic. Now here is the sick part it's authored by a black woman.
The dumb heifer responsible for the video is the real one suffering from self-loathing.

The problem with liberals is they think that whatever's good for rich white professional woman living in Manhattan is also good for a poor uneducated undocuumented Chicana living in Fresno.

Give them ALL access to "the morning after pill" (Plan B)instead of exercising Plan A... CONTRACEPTION.

So what if it's the Chicana's that will ultimately pay the price in abortions and unwanted children.

Tyrone, that is one of the best messages written.
Lack of home training and lack of religious training is mostly responsible. Once upon a timwe men married the women and had children and stayed married, raised the children together. The breakdown in the churches and family has caused some of this mess. When the government started giving welfare to blacks, the men were sent packing, thus making babies all over the hood. I know two men now who have 10 children by ten difference women Most on welfare. Welfare gavwe women freedom from wandring men and the system never enforce payment and most went to jail. Two problems, welfare and jail. I know one family whose boys met their sperm donors in jail. In one school a 9 year old boy was abused by his mother and he was cold as ice. Last I heard, he was in juvenile services. The preachers teach nothing but lies and sex any thing moving. Some not all do this mess, but it has become so prevalent that it has made a mockery of the Bible and most no longer believe in God or the Bible anymore and are left to be sucked into traps set by wolves in sheep's clothing. All the boys see is blaming the white man, then the white man pays taxes ther boys and their mothers use, Since their mothers and fathers mostly didnt pay taxes and they keep making children and demanding money. Some children want to grow up and get on welfare and the boys dont know what to do as the return to the corners to sell dope as mules. Fathers could go around the boys and girls and at least tell the children they love them, and explain that they dont have money but I still love you. Children will feel better.

"Liberalism" and the "so-called Black leaders" was the genesis for the problems?

Lets see what "liberalism" and the "so-called Black leaders", have done for (or as you say, "to") Blacks in America.

It's a fact that it was "liberalism" that caused the politicians and Black leaders (eg; Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, etc...) of the time to end slavery.

It's a fact that "liberalism" and a Black leader (Dred Scott) promoted the idea that Blacks should be considered U.S. citizens.

It's a fact that it was "liberalism" that gave blacks the right to vote.

It's a fact that "liberalism" integrated the armed forces, passed the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, Brown v. Board of Ed., Affirmative Action, etc..., and these idea's were promoted by Black leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, M. L. King, etc...

So Tyrone, as you label yourself as a "Conservative", where do you think Blacks would be if the "conservative" politicians and "conservative" Black leaders of the time (Booker T. Washington in the 1800's or George Schuyler of the 1960's) if their agenda's had won out?

However Tyrone, to a degree I would agree with your assertion of how Blacks have been effected by becoming "politically Liberal", yet only in part.

Booker T. Washington advocated something he called “go slow” accommodation ism, which called for blacks to accept their present role in White America. Most conservative Whites supported his idea's. Yet, he was attacked by Black leaders who saw "accommodation" as a continuation of inequality. In the 1960's, [converted] Black Conservative George Schuyler was opposed to the liberal philosophy of the civil rights movement. Schuyler also attacked and condemned the efforts of M.L. King. Again, most conservative Whites supported his views.

Again, if "Conservatism" had won out it would suffice to say that "YOU" as a Black conservative, would be against the Civil Rights establishment, you would agree that Blacks should not "rock the boat" and accept being an "independent" underclass, and if allowed to vote, to do so according to a conservative philosophy... Oh wait, that is your ideal...isn't it?

It's not "liberalism", per se', that has caused the problems we have in Black communities. And it's totally clear and apparent that "conservatism" would not have fair better, and in most cases would be worse. I believe it's the idea that Blacks will not, and have not defined ourselves!

To define ourselves means having our own political (spiritual, social, economic) definition. Both "liberal" and "conservative" have proven themselves to be incompatible with Black Americans.

p allen ""Liberalism" and the "so-called Black leaders" was the genesis for the problems? "


Did I stutter when I said that allen? I don't think I did. Who were responsible for the making it so that the father couldn't stay in the home in order for the woman a child to be able to get government assistance? What does "WIC" stands for? Does it stand for "Woman and Infant Care"? Do you see "Men, Woman & Infant Care? Tell me I'm wrong that the government use to give women who were on public assistance more money for every child the gave birth to. Just tell me I'm wrong allen.

p allen "It's a fact that it was "liberalism" that gave blacks the right to vote. "

Liberalism calls blacks racial names if blacks don't vote for them. So according to liberal logic, liberals gave blacks the right to vote exclusively for them or sell". You left that part out.

p allen "It's a fact that it was "liberalism" that caused the politicians and Black leaders (eg; Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, etc...) of the time to end slavery. "

I would love to see the evidence that shows Frederick Douglas was a liberal. Make it happen allen.

p allen "It's a fact that "liberalism" integrated the armed forces, passed the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, Brown v. Board of Ed., Affirmative Action, etc..., and these idea's were promoted by Black leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, M. L. King, etc... "

Chew on this. Liberalism has killed more blacks in America in the last 20 years then what the Klu Klux Klan has killed in the last 100 years. Don't forget that it was liberalism that targeted black women to abort their children. I'm sure you meant to mention that allen.

p allen "It's a fact that "liberalism" integrated the armed forces, passed the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, Brown v. Board of Ed., Affirmative Action, etc..., and these idea's were promoted by Black leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, M. L. King, etc... "

It is liberalism that has caused racial tension, by promoting affirmative action by giving a person who's main qualifier is the color of his or her skin a position and denying a qualified person due to the color of his or her skin. In other words, liberalism is the creator of reverse discrimination.


p allen "So Tyrone, as you label yourself as a "Conservative", where do you think Blacks would be if the "conservative" politicians and "conservative" Black leaders of the time (Booker T. Washington in the 1800's or George Schuyler of the 1960's) if their agenda's had won out?

Blacks would be economically and socially and morally much better off then they are right now that's for sure. The ghetto mindset isn't a conservative trait allen. It's liberal educators that want to teach black kids in ebonics allen. It's liberals who believe that the SAT and other tests should be dumbed down in so blacks students have a better chance in passing them allen.Liberals dont' even have faith that black students can compete with white and Asian students. It's liberals who run the public education systems in the major cities. It's liberals who run the major cities with the highest concentration of blacks.

Why bother having these discussions in regards to the current crises facing Black America, and in particular, Black men?
I've given up, trying to figure out the sorry state of African-Americans. As long as a large segment of our community continues to believe that it's up to so-called compassionate White liberals to rescue us from our own, poor self - judgement, then our community will continue to lag, economically, spiritually, and politically.
Our society has become so secularized, so morally laxed, that there is virtually no stigma placed behind any form of bad behavior! For crying out loud, this society is encouraging everyone to view themselves as a victim, while seeking restitution through monetary book deals, frivilous lawsuits and 15 minutes on Oprah's soon-to-be ended [THANK YOU, JESUS], television show! Lastly, most black men are being looked upon as an endangered species, partly because of the morally corrupt mindset of their irresponsible parents and corporate America's fascination with arrogant millionaires like rap stars Ludicrous Jay Z, Snoop Dog, Ice Cube and P. Diddy. All of these men and many others in the hip hop industry have played into the hands of greedy white executives, who have cashed in exorbitantly, through the arrogance of both black and white consumers. None of these modern-day sambos gives a damn, as to how much psychological damage they have contributed to millions of young, uneducated black males.
They've spent the most productive years of their young adult lives, brainwashing their mostly youthful audience into adopting a ghettoized, gangster lifestyle, while cashing in and fattening up their wallets. And talk about hypocracy, they seem to have no love, whatsover, "for da man," who still signs their hefty paychecks, yet they're all living in crime free, gated, predominately white communities, while their own children reap the rewards of a stellar education in a superior, predominately white private school! Meanwhile, you have characters like Jay Z, and P. Diddy, sporting Brooks Brothers suits, while being celebrated by blacks who insist that their nefarious backgrounds should be placed in the past. "Let's not hate on the brothas," they chime, "for turning somethin' positiv', from a nagativ"!

CB;"I would love to see the evidence that shows Frederick Douglas was a liberal. Make it happen allen".

Come on now Tyrone.... For once in your life, why not do your own studies!! (and thinking, for that matter) If Mark Levin told you Peter Pan was a conservative, you'd probably believe it...

Can you name a "conservative" in the 1800's that was first a slave, then a staunch abolitionist, a supporter of Native American rights, an advocate for an independent rule in Ireland and supported womens suffrage?

It appears as though you're not accepting what conservatism was (and many ways still is) during the years after slavery. Post slavery almost all Democrat politicians were "conservatives." Thats a FACT!

CB;"It is liberalism that has caused racial tension, by promoting affirmative action".

As if there was no racial tension before Affirmative Action??? How do you think Affirmative Action came to be law?

And for your information, the most aggressive implementation of A.A. policies came under the Nixon administration in the form of the Philadelphia Plan which was initiated by Arthur Fletcher a Black Republican government official.

CB;"Liberalism has killed more blacks in America in the last 20 years then what the Klu Klux Klan has killed in the last 100 years. Don't forget that it was liberalism that targeted black women to abort their children".

Abortion is Conservative wedge issue!
It's a myth that Black women are "targeted." The CDC 2000 Report shows that compared races of Black/Other abortions with that of Whites the statistics are about the same. Although Blacks have a higher percentage rate of abortion than Whites, in raw numbers (being that Whites out number Blacks by more than 7 times) many more White's have abortions.

The actual target is "YOU." Your conservative leaders want your VOTE! It's fine that you believe that abortion is wrong...thats your opinion and your right. Hell, if my wife, daughter, sister, aunt, or mother expressed they wanted to abort a pregnancy, I would be more than against it! But ultimately, the choice is THEIRS!

In this country a woman has the right to do as she pleases with her own body, be it human inside her, or fetus inside her. Your religious beliefs cannot be dictated to the masses. Thats what the "Republican" appointed Supreme Court Judge Harry Blackmun wrote.

So my advise to you is that, if you're against abortion, don't have one!

Tyrone you hit the nail on Allen'shead.

Frederick Douglass was liberal ashe married a white woman way back then.

Booker T. Washington debated the Communist W.E.Dubois and Booker T made the most sense. He wanted Blacks to have their own businesses and WE wanted all to go to college. Booker said someone had to build houses and farm. Since most blacks at the time had very little education having their own businesses was the best way to rise.

90% of our children share the same father and an old Islamic saying by the Arab Muslim scholar, black women are whores and the children arelike animals not knowing their fathers. Detroit is like many liberal cities out of control. Liberals have destroyed the word of God as writtten by teaching the liberal preachers lies. Most of our young know verylittleand voted from the color of Obama's skin shade, not the content of his character asit was in reality unknown or hidden.

As long as millions of blacks within our community, continue to allow so-called compassionate white liberals to save us from our own poor self judgement, we will continue to lag spiritually, economically and politically.
The perennial crisis facing most black males can be attributed to a number of factors, such as our societies morally lax rules and tolerance for bad beviour. Our culture today, encourages everyone to view themselves as victims, while seeking monetary rewards through million dollar book deals, while filing frivilous lawsuits against anyone who hurt our feelings and gaining 15 minutes of fame by appearing on Oprah's soon to be defunct, [THANK YOU JESUS] talk show!
By far the worse influences should be directed towards the numerous moral free black men and women, who routinely produce children out of wedlock while leadimg reckless lifestyles. Since our society will no longer attach a negative stigma behind any type of bad behaviour, anything goes. And let's not forget those verbally and academically-challenged, self made millionaires from the billion dollar hip-hop industry, such as Jay Z, I Cube, Snoop Dog and P. Diddy who are being taken seriously by corporate America.
None of these self-absorbed narcissicists and other mil
ionaire rap stars recognizes the psychological damage which they and their predominately white corporate bosses, whom they have no admiration for, placed on millions of young people, in particular, black males.
Never mind the fact that they spent the bulk of their young adult lives brainwashing their mostly youthful fans into adopting the substandard ghetto mentality and lifestyle, but now their fame has afforded them the opportunity to live in predominately crime-free, and gated white communities. On top of that, their own children are reaping the personal rewards of mastering proper english and aquiring a stellar education through superior private schools! What hypocrates! Yet you'll hear a number of arrogant blacks attesting: "let's not hate on the brothas, after all, they turnin' somethin' positiv from a negativ!

Let me get this straight, Mr. Allen, conservatives such as Tyrone, myself, and others are the cause of the misery in the black community today. Interesting, Mr. Allen. Let’s look at some statistics (setting aside for the moment institutionalized and/or legalized racism issues, I’ll come back to that):

Prior to Liberalism’s “Help” for minorities (aka LBJ’s civil rights acts)

The Black community had a vibrant family and social life.
The Black community had myriad small businesses.
The Black community had similar crime levels to any other community.
Black on Black violence was unheard of.
The Black community had unwed mother rates similar to the country as a whole.
The Black community had crime rates similar to that of the country as a whole.
The Black community had drug and alcohol abuse rates similar to the country as a whole.

Today:

All of those positives are under extreme pressure and moving in the negative direction.

Sounds like liberalism helped the Black community a great deal.


Back to the institutionalized racism issues. Prior to LBJ’s legislative agenda, segregation and racism (de jure or de facto) were the norm in many places. This was indeed categorically wrong and needed to be righted through legislation. Had true conservative values been applied, ALL communities would have been granted equal opportunity under the law. Instead, the foundations of the problems that the Black community of today faces were laid. Liberals said, in effect, that some people weren’t capable of living in the larger society without special help from the government. They weren’t smart enough, hard working enough, or whatever enough to succeed. So they needed government handouts.

Prior to the start of the handouts, the poverty that existed in the Black community was largely due to the limitations to success that racism and segregation imposed. Take away those limitations, and my contention is that the small businesses would have become larger businesses. These larger businesses would have been the source of greatly increased opportunity for other Blacks. The result would have been the elimination of most of the poverty.

Instead, as those who grew up before LBJ died, the new generation knew only the government programs. The problems grew as a result. It all comes back to the Peace Corps old slogan: “If you give a man a fish, he eats for today. If you teach him to fish, he eats for a lifetime.” The government is dedicated to giving out fish because that gives them power.

If you doubt my theories on this subject, you need only look to all of the other immigrant communities. They’ve succeeded because they’ve avoided the government handouts. And that includes Blacks who have emigrated from other countries who didn’t have the mindset that they could only survive by a dependence on the government.

Sorry, Mr. Allen, I think Tyrone is right on the money.

Good-hearted liberal politicians continually vote to spend more and more and more on public education, especially in the big cities, yet black males drop out of public schools at alarming rates.

For whatever reason exists (and I'd say the lack of a stable two-parent family is a big part of it), the urban black sub-culture discourages males from staying in school and studying hard, and encourages them to drop out.

Once that happens, bam! it's pretty much over. You have 14 and 15 year old boys taking one of the most important decisions in their lives, decisions which will impact everything else that follows in their lives.

The Democrats can't deal with this problem, because to deal with it means to criticize their most important constituency, and the last thing that the Democrats want to do is anger black voters.

The largest group of racists in this country are white Democratic politicians: they simply don't believe that blacks can handle the truth, and they desperately need American blacks to be subservient to the handout government. For white Democrats to actually respect black Americans as real people is to risk the possibility that some of them will think independently and, horrors! maybe vote Republican.

The negative crisis regarding the sorry state of black male students today, centers on a number of contributing factors, including our societies lax moral rules and low tolerance for irresponsible behavior.
More importantly is the debilitating impact in which millions of morally-free black men and women, continue to direct, by producing children out of wedlock, while living reckless lives. Since our culture no longer attaches any type of negative stigma behind bad behavior, most people today are encouraged to view themselves as victims, while raking in monetary restitution.
On top of that, most black males have bought into the hype of the ghetto lifestyle, thanks in part, to the efforts of a number of academically and verbally challenged self-made hip-hop millionaires like Jay Z, Snoop Dog, Ice Cube and P. Diddy, who unfortunately are being taken seriously by their mostly white corporate enablers.
All of these self-absorbed narcissists are not even aware of the kind of psychological damage in which they have placed on their mostly young fans, in particular black males.

David R. Fry;"Let me get this straight, Mr. Allen, conservatives such as Tyrone, myself, and others are the cause of the misery in the black community today".

Unfortunately, you didn't get it straight. I said nothing of the sort.

I'll bet you can't find when, where or how on this thread (or any other) where I stated or implied that "conservatives such as Tyrone, yourself, and others are the cause of the misery in the black community today."

Now, please allow me to set you straight...

Tyrone, and many other Black conservatives have been told that the misery in many Black communities has been caused by "liberalism" via the Democratic Party. I contend that such an idea is merely a well thought out political "talking-point" strategy designed to sway black voters to the Republican side.

What we're talking about here is called a "voting bloc." Politically, voting blocs are very powerful and can sway elections. The only type of unity Blacks do have in this country is our nearly monolithic vote. Like any other voting bloc (eg; religious, labor, business, etc...) the Black vote is sought after by politicians at every level of the game.

Contrary to what you're being told by "White Conservative politicians", the fact is they could care as less about the misery in Black communities to the same degree as "White Liberal politicians." Basically, there's no difference between the two... THEY BOTH WANT YOUR VOTE! No more, no less...

I don't want to get into a long history lesson here, so I'll just make my point. All one has to do is follow the historic patterns of Blacks in America an the obvious should become abundantly clear.

There is no proof that if Blacks voted Republican over the last 60 years that our plight would be any different. Would there be more Black doctors, engineers, astronauts, businessmen, black owned corporations, television stations, hospitals, etc..?? Would voting Republican have prevented the 73% out of wedlock birthrate? Would there be less Black on Black violence? Can you for certain show undeniable PROOF that voting for the Republican white would have made us better than voting for the Democrat white??

David, allow me to show you how mixed up your "instructed" thinking is...

You said this;"Prior to LBJ’s legislative agenda, segregation and racism (de jure or de facto) were the norm in many places. This was indeed categorically wrong and needed to be righted through legislation".

The "righted" legislation you speak of is "LIBERAL" legislation! Yet you claim that "LIBERAL" legislation is, in you own words, what caused the misery???? Some how you've come up with the same idea that's "right" and "wrong?" That proves you're mixed up..
On the other hand, it's understandable because you're right for the wrong reasons.

Desegregation (as it was framed by "ALL WHITE POLITICIANS") was the worse thing to happen to Blacks. Yes, all those things you mentioned in your post (vibrant family and social life, myriad small businesses, similar crime levels, etc...) were part of daily Black life. However, I blame ourselves, and us alone for allowing others to draw our path!

We didn't need their jobs... we had our own already! We didn't need their housing...we had our own! We didn't need their stores, schools, churches, social venues or politicians!

It didn't take 10 years after the "forced" desegregation practices that Black professionals began leaving the neighborhoods that bore and bred them, for neighborhoods (in most cases) that did not want them there. Subsequently, the positive role models and staples of many Black communities were gone.

Yet, don't take my assertion the wrong way. I don't believe in the "separate but equal" doctrine. My idea is that Blacks should hold our own! Such as the Jews, the newly arrived Arab communities or many of the other so-called minorities in America. We should have our own prosperous economic, educational, social, political and spiritual identity! We don't the Democratic nor the Republican party identity or agenda.

Until we decide to join together (economic, educational, social, political and spiritual) to change the course of our communities, both parties will continue to play us for their own political gain.

I didn't agree with her politics but she definitely put that ignorant Melosidad1 in her place. I believe black folks can only rise when they reject the poison of identity politics.

Seems that identity politics is another form of brainwashing. Belonging to a victim group means you are not given the freedom to decide for yourself what's best for you. Only your so called representatives are given that privilege. If my rejecting their poison makes me a traitor than so be it.

Obviously you have no idea what "true conservative values "are! As explained by a conservative group, who has utter disdain for any Liberal point of view; Conservative values are about resisting any urges to make too-rapid changes, essentially.

Again, conservatives of the 1960's aren't necessarily your conservatives of today. The conservative of 1960 not only would have, but did vote to continue to deny Blacks equal status in America. Jim Crow might have been a Democrat, but he was conservative as conservative could get!

What you're not calculating is what conservatism meant during the era of LBJ. Had conservative won the Civil Rights battle, laws preventing your "Black tush" from voting, attending the school or college of your choice, marrying who you please, traveling or living where you please, would still be around today, "resisting any urges to make too-rapid changes."

True, however the damage has been done!

Here's a quick short story...a true story...

An Armenian businessman owned a used car business. He had 2 sons and a daughter. One year, due his failing health, the father turned his business over to his children. Due to his culture and a long standing tradition, the father gave total control of the business to his two sons, with instructions that the daughter may only work in the business, but could not own any part of the business.

Several years went by and the children, all working together, grew the business into a multi million dollar new car dealer. The father, who's health had improved, suddenly realized that what he had done was wrong, and that his daughters work had contributed just as much, if not more, into building the business.

When the father told the 2 sons he had made mistake and they need to evenly share ownership with the daughter, of course all hell broke loose. Although the daughter worked jsut as hard in the business, each brother contended that his efforts in building the business are now being stripped away, being short changed, thus weakening himself and the business.

Similarly, that story is a mirror image of the plight of much of the opportunity where America has excluded Blacks. Large Black owned corporations that would rival Ford, Walmart, Berkshire Hathaway, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., IBM, Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, etc...

Up until the 1980's much of the opportunity to build large black owned business in this country was limited to entertainment or products directly aimed at blacks.

Had the few successful blacks in the 50's and 60's banded together and started corporations geared to train, educate and employ blacks, it wouldn't have mattered what political affiliation we had taken up.

Tyrone I heard today that the Commies and Socialist will have no need for Obama if he stops doing what they want. Muslims are being brought to America to protect him if the "wind blows the wrong way". Things are brewing and not good. For Christians and Jews it will be kill time for Muslims who will obey Allah's words from the Quran. As a Christian, why doesnt Obama ever praise the Bible or Christianity as he does Islam. He always visits moques and never temples.

People are telling Americans to store food because things are coming to the end as the Bible says.
Soon the time will come when we will never be able to buy anything unless we have the mark of the beast in Rev. 13:16-18. This is the end of this wicked system ruled by Satan the Devil also known as Allah. Quran 3:54. Prove all things! Our people will suffer the most, because of the lack of knowledge and education is a must. Without knowledge we will not be able to succeed in today's world. WAKE UP BLACK AMERICA! SOROS SAYS HE OWNS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY in 2008.

Renee "Why bother having these discussions in regards to the current crises facing Black America, and in particular, Black men?"

Some days I feel the same way Renee, but to give up only means that the problem wins out. It does feel like a problem that is impossible to fix. 95% of me feels that it is.

Renee "I've given up, trying to figure out the sorry state of African-Americans. As long as a large segment of our community continues to believe that it's up to so-called compassionate White liberals to rescue us from our own, poor self - judgement, then our community will continue to lag, economically, spiritually, and politically.

White liberals are only compassionate with other people's tax dollars. Even with that said, they have no intentions of fixing the problems their ideology has helped to create. It doesn't work in their best interest to try and create a stable, economic viable black class of people, because that would contribute to eliminating a loyal, devoted, DEPENDENT block of black voters.

Renee "Our society has become so secularized, so morally laxed, that there is virtually no stigma placed behind any form of bad behavior! For crying out loud, this society is encouraging everyone to view themselves as a victim, while seeking restitution through monetary book deals, frivilous lawsuits and 15 minutes on Oprah's soon-to-be ended [THANK YOU, JESUS], television show! Lastly, most black men are being looked upon as an endangered species, partly because of the morally corrupt mindset of their irresponsible parents and corporate America's fascination with arrogant millionaires like rap stars Ludicrous Jay Z, Snoop Dog, Ice Cube and P. Diddy. All of these men and many others in the hip hop industry have played into the hands of greedy white executives, who have cashed in exorbitantly, through the arrogance of both black and white consumers. None of these modern-day sambos gives a damn, as to how much psychological damage they have contributed to millions of young, uneducated black males.
They've spent the most productive years of their young adult lives, brainwashing their mostly youthful audience into adopting a ghettoized, gangster lifestyle, while cashing in and fattening up their wallets. And talk about hypocracy, they seem to have no love, whatsover, "for da man," who still signs their hefty paychecks, yet they're all living in crime free, gated, predominately white communities, while their own children reap the rewards of a stellar education in a superior, predominately white private school! Meanwhile, you have characters like Jay Z, and P. Diddy, sporting Brooks Brothers suits, while being celebrated by blacks who insist that their nefarious backgrounds should be placed in the past. "Let's not hate on the brothas," they chime, "for turning somethin' positiv', from a nagativ"!

Very true. Morality is bleeding from the black community. At it's core, that is the problem. Back during the civil rights movement, blacks had a completely different mindset then they do now. What a difference 45 years can make. There was no ghetto mindset in the black community.

the hick "Let me get this straight, Mr. Allen, conservatives such as Tyrone, myself, and others are the cause of the misery in the black community today. Interesting, Mr. Allen. Let’s look at some statistics (setting aside for the moment institutionalized and/or legalized racism issues, I’ll come back to that):"

Welcome to allen's logic hick, just remember his logic doesn't make sense in the real world. With hime 2+2=6 all day long.lol

This is for you allen. It wasn't conservatism that brought for the "my baby daddy or momma" syndrome in the black community. There was even a comedy movie made about this.Conservatism didn't bring forth the ghettofication of the black community. If a conservative says he doesn't believe gangsta rap is actual music, that person is then called a "racist". Tell me I am wrong allen. I posted the video of the ghetto gangster rapper who was at Obama's midterm pep rally in Oregon a few weeks ago.

p allen "What we're talking about here is called a "voting bloc." Politically, voting blocs are very powerful and can sway elections. The only type of unity Blacks do have in this country is our nearly monolithic vote. Like any other voting bloc (eg; religious, labor, business, etc...) the Black vote is sought after by politicians at every level of the game. "

Tell me how powerful and beneficial for blacks has it been for them voting 90% for over 45 years for Democratic politicians allen? The areas with the highest concentration of blacks continue to decay in poverty, crime and education. So what have blacks gained by their "collective" voting habits?

CB;"Tell me how powerful and beneficial for blacks has it been for them voting 90% for over 45 years for Democratic politicians allen? The areas with the highest concentration of blacks continue to decay in poverty, crime and education".

Again, what makes you think it would be any different if Blacks voted Republican???

Tyrone, the Republicans are more than free to open banks, stores and shops in any black community. I'm sure any black community would welcome a Republican based or backed business to move in and create good paying jobs within the community. Here in Detroit there have been at least 100 schools closed due to failing academics or low population. The call has been put out for "anyone", so any conservative organization is welcome. Conservatives and Republicans are welcome any time, in any Black community in America.

Sooooo, where are they??? They've had 45 years too! What...what's that you say?? Blacks don't vote Repub, so why should they do anything for Blacks?? But wait...if Repub's and conservatives really cared about blacks, wouldn't they at least make an effort to help solve the problems? They've had 45 years too!

As Blacks, we need our own economic, socio-political, educational and spititual ideals to ascend out of the perils that both the Liberal and Conservative agendas have blinded us. We should not be either Democrat or Republican.

sigh---I wrote about this before i saw the fight--I'm sick and tired of black women trying to be like men and the men thinking its cool watching this!! I'm tired of people who are my ethnicity are being made to look like freaks and unworthy of male attraction and respect--I know that they dont know any better--I also know that, although other ethnicities have their moments, the're nothing compared to black men and women---we got WORSE with desegregation because 'hard core' liberals used the civil rights era to 'let it all hang out' the difference was they had a lot more going for them, and could afford it while we blacks were just getting out of a bad situation, or starting our businesses to cater to non-blacks, etc.but that got shutdown with radical feminism, etc.

You nailed on the head. I have so many students who don't have a good male authority figure in the household that the BSU adviser is going to start a mentorship program where I teach to help those kids out. And sadly it's not just the black kids, the Hispanic students have the same issues at my school. It makes my job that much harder.
