his argument is non sequitur.

I can't imagine an argument that is non sequitur (as an adjective?).

I'm an idiot, and an ass.

That's bull.  The decline in black America's family and social structure has nothing to do with white oppression, as it occurred mainly AFTER the Civil Rights Act.


Not that I don't agree, but just b/c the deterioration started after CRA doesn't mean it's not the result of white oppression.

In that case, why didn't the decline start WAY before, when oppression was at its height?

Personally, I think the decline in family is due to the Great Society entitlement programs. 
Yes. Feeding poor children is the root of all evil.
Googler, you do know that a great many welfare parents are white, don't you?

Yes, stealing money from people to give to another is still evil, even if it's being done with the blessing of the government.

It's absolutely true, that the black communities have been destroyed by these programs.  Why bother waiting until you're married to have kids when you know the government will send you a check? 

just so you know polygamists do the same thing. they don't get legally married so they can claim welfare for their large families. In Colorado City, which is nearly 100% white 78% percent of families are on welfare. They recieve 8 dollars in government service for every 1 dollar paid in taxes. I'd like to see a comparison between this city and a highly concentrated black community of the same size (9,000)

I'm glad we can agree on something, though I almost wish you justified your statement.
