She makes some excellent points. People become what they think and blacks have been told they need the government to take care of them because they can't take care of themselves. Funny, because when I was growing up black families were strong, some of them stronger then other families. But that was before "the Great Society" when blacks were told they can't take care of themselves, and the government wouldn't pay if the husband lived in the house.

When I was growing up, I lived in a part of town where sick people lived. If you had a family member with asthma, or arthritis, or lung problems you lived there because it was up above the dust in the air and there was no irrigation. Black, Hispanic, white, indian all lived side by side and there was no difference in family structure or love or respect.

The period when you grew up was before the war on religion.

Most of the poor Black families were firmly rooted in the church. The church taught them to be satisfied with less, that their reward would be in heaven. The left hated that, they thought that religion was contributing to the cycle of poverty among the Black population, who tended to have larger families than the White families and if something wasn’t done about it, the Blacks would one day take over the cities. Thus, Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood set out to do something about it.

What we are seeing now is a war against Christianity and the inherent moral code of Christianity. Judeo Christian religions teach, not only a strict moral code, but self responsibility, as well.

God helps those, who help themselves, the parable of the three talents, and many other such teachings conflict with the leftist theme of government dependence.
