Mind giving those of us who cannot view the video at work a transcript of what was said? I’d love to join in on bashing the Breck girl =).

Every time Edwards speaks it is an indictment of the juries that have rewarded him enough lawsuit verdicts that he is a multi-millionaire.

"we can't build enough prisons to hold all of the criminals or eventualy there will be no black people left because they would either be in jail or dead."

Thanks for the post. That is funny. My gawd, is he the phoniest man on Earth or what? Doing the old two Americas thing again. When is he going to open up that big home of his and let all the disaffected yutes live with him?

The video was called “stopping inner-city violence, and the question was what Edwards would do, as President. From an MTV program.

Yes, the gobsmack quote was at the beginning.
“The idea that we’re just going to keep incarcerating...
pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America — they’re all going to be in prison.. or dead, one of the two.” The young folks were
all nodding in agreement.

Then he started talking about education reform and the pixie dust put me to sleep.

Verbatim, what he said was:

“Pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African American male population in America, they’re all gonna be in prison or dead.”

Nice, eh? lol

Obviously the solution is for the “gummint” to throw tons more money at the problem...

Question: "If elected, what would you do to help eliminate inner city kids partake in violence?"

Edwards: "That's a good question...The answer's a little long, so bear with me. Because I don't think there's a silver bullet for this.
We start with the President of the United States saying to America: "We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And... the idea that we're just gonna keep incarcerating, keep incarcerating... pretty soon we're not gonna have a young African American ma- male population in America - they're ALL gonna be in prison or dead, one of the two.
And so, I think there are a lot of things we need to do...."

His education solution was the same-o -- throw money at the problem. 'Teacher incentives yada yada yada improve schools yada yada yada'.

All those years of mandatory busing didn't solve the problem, either.

[One of the biggest problems in education is too many government official and politicians trying to run the system by inserting too many PC mandates, instead of letting professional educators do their jobs.]

John Edwards downfall has already happened he’s just too arrogant and egotistical to know it. He’s been stuck on app. 10% forever. The only thing he is doing is helping the Republicans with these little idiotic quotes he makes and then has to send his wife out to “CLARIFY”. He is what a Democrat truly is, he’s just to stupid to keep it hidden all the time.

Edwards’s comment was utterly insulting and stupid. I would like to hear the GOP candidates pick up on that and attack it as typical of Democrat thought, but I won’t hold my breath.

Well, there's a big difference between the two incidents!

Imus is a "shock jock" -- he's paid to say outrageous things. He's paid to say things that (he hopes) are funny. He was trying to be hip and use current day lingo. And he tripped up. Obviously, his career is over.

Edwards, on the other hand, is a professional lawyer who knows how to weigh his words. He's a candidate for president who thinks that all black males are criminals. He will continue on with his campaign, and this will blow over.

Come now. It’s obvious it was a back-handed slap at the naturally racist whites (the GOP) who control the country.

The black will be in jail or dead BECAUSE WHITES ARE RACIST and do everything they can to put blacks there.

Not because blacks did anything wrong - as this thread is trying to make it out to say.

Nothing will come of this exactly because of this spin.

LOL. I’m not surprised he said that, but would be surprised if anyone in the media calls him on it.

BTW, my eyes glazed over and I may gave dozed while he was talking about the solution to inner city violence. I heard him babble a bit about government solutions but did he mention anything about starting with making changes at the source- the home, family life, the criminal him/herself?

Correct.

They're already dumping on the GOP, top contenders for snubbing Tavis Smiley's, socialist-democrat ambush the other night. Since when have Republicans in a tight, primary race... become obligated to appear before the 90% of voters who would never consider them?!

” . . .he couldn’t get elected dog catcher in his own state.”

A good opportunity to point out that he was actually born in South Carolina. He fooled the voters on North Carolina once, but knew he would NOT be reelected, so he bailed out of his senate seat and became Kerry’s butt boy.

CNN is a commercial enterprise, trying to increase its ratings. It has no business trying to define racism for us.

Correct. I’m glad someone sees it my way. And sees that parading this around isn’t going to change anything, because it’s obvious the listeners knew what he meant, too. Even though he’s a rich honkey.

Edwards is a hustler socking away political donations and living high on the hog.

I think he’s ok with not actually getting the nomination or becoming president.

I don’t know. Gore is mind numbing boring, crafty, and mental, but it’s pretty open for all to see. Kerry is full of himself and that’s pretty much out in the open too. Of course, they do all have extreme phoniness in them as well. I think Edwards still takes the cake in the phoniness department though—in the male category. I’d award the female category to Hillary.

I was reading this follow up (I read this originally last night), and of a sudden was reflecting (mind drift) on an article I remember reading in the mid 1990’s.

In that article was a glowing forecast of the NEXT JFK. A young lawyer named John Edwards whom we all would have to watch as he soared to great heights within the American Political scene.

I wish I could find that article today simply to see what nutcase wrote it.

Most conservatives run as conservatives and clearly state their philosophy most liberals do not. Remember all the Dems elected instead of conservatives in 2006 claimed conservative principles. We all know they did not really believe in them.

"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down." --- Bill Bennett

The statement above was offensive to John Conyers, who wrote:

"Mr. Bennett gratuitously injected racial stereotyping into a conversation with a caller about social security and abortion, stating that aborting black babies would reduce the crime rate. Regardless of whether he intended to offer serious consideration of the idea of aborting every black baby, and that he said later that it would be 'impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible' to do so, Mr. Bennett stood by his contention that to do so would result in a lower crime rate, thus perpetuating the negative stereotype that African-Americans are criminals. That I find to be a great problem; and, to date, neither you [Salem Radio Network] nor Mr. Bennett have [sic] explained why such stereotyping was needed or even bothered to apologize for linking race with crime in such a discriminatory fashion."
