Quote# 8234

Can anyone take an objective look at the black culture in America and say that it is a thriving, healthy culture? At any given time, about 60% of its teen population are in jail, on parole, pending trial or in some way being scrutinized by the legal system. Only 13% of the population, they comprise 60% of the prison population. It is a culture that glamorizes drugs and criminals, and demeans women as whores and bitches. Why is this?

Perhaps the fact that 70% of all black chilldren are illegitimate is a major factor.

No society so plagued by illegitimacy and the desintegration of the family structure has ever survived. As the rest of America catches up with the black community and as more and more of our children are raised by single parents, we will see a similar desintegration of our culture as well. It's coming,America. Just look around you.

This guy needs to take a good, hard look at exactly what \"brilliant\" really means.

Is there even one statement in that post that's true?

11/3/2005 9:25:47 PM


excuse me.

I just vomited. What a worthless excuse for a human being.

I wonder if it hurt when he pulled all those numbers out of his ass?

11/3/2005 11:02:22 PM


He must have one huge ass.

Remember folks, 90% of all statistics are made up on the spot!

11/4/2005 12:05:05 AM


And the other 10% are made up in advance.

All the good comments are taken.

Anyway, this guy is an idiot.

Interesting. I worked at a school with a 73% black population (the rest was hispanic, with 2% caucasian). When I looked at the attendance sheet in the morning, it was never riddled with \"Absent/Court Date.\"

Maybe you're just a racist? Maybe?

I bet he couldn't find any good (i.e. real) statistics because he was too busy preparing for his date with his sister.

Holy mothafucker.
Can we just shoot this KKK-worth bigot?

Interesting, many comments but nothing to contradict his (or hers) claim.

According to this site, \"http://www.isteve.com/2003_Black_Illegitimacy_Rate_Declines.htm,\" the black illegitimacy rate is around 70%.

However, according to this site, \"http://www.hrw.org/reports/2000/usa/Rcedrg00-01.htm,\" while blacks do make up 13 percent of the population, they only make up 49%, not 60%, of the prison population. It doesn't have any stats for the percentage of black teenagers, but 33% of black males between 20 and 29 are in prison, on parole, or on probation.

I'd say this guy really has not done his homework with respect to the type of family structures that have existed. I guess he gets is anthropological education from George Bush. According to this article, \"http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2004/02/27/MNGSK59NGM1.DTL,\" families have been very varied throughout history.

Everyone is commenting along the lines of, \"Oh, you're just a racist,\" but to be honest, pointing out that black teen culture is pretty bad is not saying that all black people wear bling and participate in drive-by shootings. They certainly do not. But that doesn't mean there isn't a serious problem with major segments of black culture today. These students - and I am aware that I'm generalizing, and I do not refer to all black people - have no desire for education, little to no ability to speak in formal english, and little respect for authority. I am not saying that this is intrinsic to being black - I recognize the oppression they have faced historically - but some of the blame today has to land squarely on the parents who do not raise their children with an appreciation of education.

It would not be racist to refer to Morning Musume as an example of modern Japanese pop culture, and it's not racist to point out that Asians simply do better at school and have a culture that respects education, and so should it not be racist to refer to the glamorization of gangs and basketball as representative of black teenage culture in places like Los Angeles and Oakland(Two places I've lived my whole life).

When so many black children are born to unwed mothers and so many black men are disenfranchised due to felony convictions, then more of a solution is required than simply calling everyone who points out the problem a racist.

Of course illegitmacy leads to crime! Why do you think \"ze Germans\" in Hilter's Germany committed such atrocious crimes....oh wait. Germany was a Christian nation at that time and had strong family values. Nevermind.

There was no racism in this comment. These are quite simply connections between the disintegration of the family and other societal problems. That such problems are more acute among blacks has nothing to do with race, but factors like illegitmacy and poverty. However, such problems are worse in the black community, so the statistics are more sobering.
The bigoted thing to conclude would have been that there is no societal problem, it's just that blacks are criminals. It's funny how so many of you are quick to post and slow to reason.

Could it be because they are artificially poor?

Amazing how many of you are so functionally illiterate that you believed this post to be about race. It's about a breakdown in family structure that has hit the black community hardest.
