"Legion" has some thoughts on our steady march to national destruction.
We live in a rather exclusive mostly white suburb that adjoins a city that's predominantly black. That includes the politics, the school system, the populace and most of the government jobs. It also explains why property taxes are so high and the city is a shell of what it once was. Those that work and contribute paying the bill for those who prefer to sit on their duffs and do nothing but take, take, take. There's something wrong with a woman who puts down her EBT beer, snuffs out her EBT cigarette, makes a call on her Obama phone, turns off her taxpayer funded flat screen, gets in her taxpayer funded Chrysler 300, drives to the grocery store and buys carts full of food with her EBT or SNAP card. You would think they'd show a little gratitude to we who pay the bill (working taxpayers), but instead they continue to hate us.This all leads me to a conversation that was going on in the snack bar at our golf course this morning. Two of us whites were sitting with a couple of really nice, taxpaying blacks. They began talking about their teen years in a local all black school. I became so disgusted that I finally had to get up and leave. Why? Because the happenings they were referring to occurred over 50 years ago. Kids coming to school with knives and guns; The frequency of "whoppings" on black kids who had visions of becoming something worthwhile; The teen pregnancies; The hatred for "uppity" white kids from other schools. How they used to steal from local merchants. And on and on. It occurred to me that very little has changed in these black communities over the past 50 years. If anything, the situation has steadily grown worse. Makes me wonder what the next 50 years will bring.The most notable differences in 2013 from then: (A) Young blacks on hard drugs. (B) The number of unwed teenage mothers is now above 60%. (C) Today's arguments most likely end in someone getting killed. (D) The number of black youths in jail. (E) The most common career choice for today's blacks is welfare. And why not? It pays better than any job they're qualified to get. In addition, our super tolerant media is most receptive to helping replace the good old American culture (that built this country) with this "new age" inner city pseudo-culture.In the 50+ years I'm talking about it seems the rapidly growing success of blacks in society has done very little if anything to persuade young blacks to achieve higher goals. To them the only paths to financial solvency is sports, entertainment, music (I'd say "rap" but there's no way you can classify that as music), crime and/or drugs. In fact most of these successful blacks are called sellouts to the white man, Uncle Tom's, etc. Education is not a "black thang" among males unless they can play football or basketball. The girls are more apt to take it seriously and complete school, even if they've become unwed mothers before they graduate.What has failed the black community in the past 50 years that has caused their conditions to worsen? There are many answers, but one thing's for sure: The Civil Rights Bill in the mid-60's pretty much destroyed the family unit in black America. Sadly, as long as they keep voting for democrats, and democrats keep expanding the "free stuff" giveaways, things aren't going to change. And who really loses in the end? That's right, future black generations...and America. Under Obama the downward slide has escalated dramatically. Just like he planned.
