The biggest social problem in this nation is how to create a nurturing environment for the 5th and 6th generation offspring of single women so these children are not condemned to the perpetual cycle of poverty and dependence. In our current progressive culture these children will not develop the skills and self discipline to compete in normal society nor do they have the role models to show them an alternative path. Over the past 50 years we’ve proven academic white papers, bloated government bureaucracies, rhetoric from community organizers, boatloads of government money and government imposed affirmative action will not break the self perpetuating cycle.
We could give every black person in America a reparations check for $200,000 today. In five years most of the residents of the progressive plantation would be mired in poverty demanding another check. Eric Holder says he wants a frank conversation on race. Let’s ask Eric what he proposes to do about the cultural problem that is holding his people down.
I understand your points and agree.
My only point here is that compared to what we do now, "40 acres and a mule" -- whether literal or figurative -- would be not only vastly cheaper, but also more effective.
How do they say it?
