We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
...but its against the narrative, and counter to the doctrine\dogma of our leftists - they are opressed, down-trodden, exploited, and needing 'special treatmens' for fairness.
Odd, but, what they lament is just what they do to this 13% of the population. The biggest oppressors are the biggest mouthpieces.
I read where the reparations proceedings are stalled, since the lawyers involved cannot get the same deal they got with the Big Tobacco shakedown.I guess you can only return to the well only so many times before the bucket returns dry...
The problem is not blacks per se but the black underclass, and it is a very big problem. Moreover, they are not alone. There is a white underclass, a Hispanic underclass and an Indian underclass. All told they amount to almost 40 million people. Because they have low IQ's and impulsive and often violent, they are largely uneducable and untrainable and unemployable, and because of that they have no function in our modern economy. Basically, they subsist on charity.
The problem is, How to deal with them in a civilized way? Got me. Everything wrong in their lives is their own fault. The welfare state is failing them. Jail is a bandage. We don't do death camps (and shouldn't, in case you're not reading well.)
This all began with Lyndon Johnson and was intended to make blacks dependent on government free stuff so they would always vote Democrat. It has succeeded mightily and the blacks have paid the price. Most/many of them are indeed dependent on government free stuff. This was a terribly cynical move by the Democrats and so sad that they have succeeded in destrying the black family.
