Have a look-see at the man's other posts. This is not Gandhi I'm calling an a-hole.
I'm sorry, I meant The Man. Edit: I skimmed 'em, and nothing female-identified popped out. A lot of anger though. You see a therapist lately?
I was terribly, terribly angry, thank you for schooling me on that fact. I've decided to be less angry and to embrace race based AA. I hope this new SC doesn't strike down AA as unconstitutional, really I don't...Now I have to go and see my therapist. Eastend, out.
I tend to agree with argument that culture is the real problem. I know several Blacks, but mostly recent immigrants - with a different culture than the typical inner city Black.I lived in Chicago for 3 years and it seems to me that inner city kids (of all races) have little chance. They either join a gang or lose their lunch money and get beat up constantly. Once in that lifestyle, they learn how much money dealing drugs earns them. It doesn't take a genius to look up what college educated professionals earn and compare it with a drug dealer who sets his/her own hours. I spoke with one former pot dealer who earned $3k/wk ($156k/yr) in high school. No long miserable years of studying, no unemployment risk and no student loans. Just the risks of jail and bullets (which he risked anyway). He ended up in jail, found religion and turned his back on the life, but he struggles to support a family in the inner city, struggles to keep his kids from what he went through. He barely earns $20k/yr.So how do we solve this problem? The gangs have the carrot and stick approach down to a science.
