Black men need special attention from social workers to deal with their needs
PhysOrg ^ | August 27, 2010 | University of Chicago

..."Contemporary characterizations and depictions suggest that African American males harbor a lifelong disregard for their own personal development, and a lack of commitment to their loved ones and society in general," a societal attitude that keeps them from being helped, he said.

Despite their problems, few programs are designed specifically to help black males, and social workers may not view them as part the families and communities that the workers serve, with the result that black males' individual needs go unaddressed...

There’s a program for Kenyan-born less-than-half-blacks to vacation with the Taliban, get into Harvard, and even become U.S. Senator and POTUS, it’s just not fair to American-born black men.

Special attention seems to be damaging black men most of all.

"Contemporary characterizations and depictions suggest that African American males harbor a lifelong disregard for their own personal development, and a lack of commitment to their loved ones and society in general,"

Thanks to the Great Society and the welfare state.

So what's the Democrat solution?

Why more of the same, of course.

Their solution to every failure of their policies.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww. That's so sweet. They're like little children. They need to be spoken to gently, and handled with kid gloves, or they will cry.

*ahem* Have they considered treating them like adults? Personal responsibility is the key. Same rules for everybody. If you screw up, you'll pay the price. Fix your damn community and make sure everyone understands that civilized people don't need (and don't want) "special attention".

The black culture is generally dysfunctional and abusive, for whatever reason. Some escape, many do not. Bill Cosby’s one of the most credible people on the subject. Affirmative action doesn’t help - it just allows more dysfunction in positions of power.

Black men have no sense of self worth because the mothers of their children can make a better living (financially) from The Welfare State:

John Doe works for a living, has a wife and two kids. He struggles to earn a living. John Doe’s neighbor Latisha Bobshabop has no husband at home, five kids and the government pays for her house, her food, the kids new Nikes...etc. John Doe decides he is doing more harm than good and skips out.

That’s the welfare state for you.

Isn’t it racist if you treat one group just because of the color of their skin?

I can’t remember who it was who referred to black people as children and needed to be treated as such. I think it was Thomas Jefferson or someone during that time. I wish I could remember. Does anyone here know who it was? I’m not trying to sound racist but I have seen times where blacks expected to be treated this way. Pandered to is the word I guess. Not all black people are like this but I have seen lots of them who are. You just cannot be open and honest with some people without a war starting.

What do you expect from an “African American”? Maybe it’s time for some dehyphenation therapy. In other words, stop handicapping their opportunity and responsibility in American society.

The pathetic thing about this is that I know and have worked with a zillion fully functional, responsible, productive, decent and sane black men. What is the deal with painting the male half of an entire race as somehow crippled and incapable of functioning like everyone else has to? And isn’t that racist, in and of itself?

Crying time again? The Japanese Americans pulled themselves out of the degradation of the internment camps after WWII. They didn’t spend time on the past but forged a place in our country overcoming all the prejudices and barriers after the war. They did this by working hard and succeeding in post war America. They didn’t rely on the handouts offered by an embarrassed and guilt ridden country.

I think if men and women would be held responsible for their actions or inactions, it would be better, rather than covering up,explaining it away,or medicating it, or paying if off, or excusing it....

we all have our own personal demons.....some are taught to deal with them and others are given a pass....

"boys will be boys" taken to a greater degree.

then again, what would have happened to most of us if we moped around the house, didn't work, or clean up, or study, or obey our parents?....

I would agree that enormous numbers of "black men" need special attention but cold hard reality dictates that the last people qualified to do this would be the a-hole degenerates calling themselves "social workers," who have largely created the problem in the first place.

This is more evidence btw that the formerly respectable U of Chicago is now nothing but a matchbook-cover university.

The Japanese Americans family didn’t fall apart, that’s why they survived to succeed.

And the idea of family was a strong centering factor in the black family until the government started to give them everything and they started to accept this largess. The Japanese that came out of the internment camps refused the “free stuff” ... deciding to make it on their own.

Imagine the furor if somebody came right out and said in so many words that black men were lazy and shiftless. And yet that’s pretty much what they’re saying.

Social workers were created as a branch of the eugenics tree.

As far as ‘prostrate’, that explains the jailhouse ‘pants on the ground’; God only knows how many were ‘done’ in jail. We know jail population stats, that’s something else to add to the mix.

Yet Cosby was roundly criticized for speaking out. Truth is, they don’t want to hear the truth. It threatens the elitist establishment, black but mostly white.

Sorry wrong by definition - those are not societal constraints. - they are sub-cultural restraints and those are of their own design.
They have to change that first or escape.

One of the better movies I ever saw about how to best turn boys into men was Coach Carter. Yet, if anybody, especially if they are white, try the same method which Coach Carter used so successfully, they are denounced by the liberal establishment as racists or worse.

For those who haven't seen the movie, Coach Carter's methods were not magic nor particularly even tied to black culture. It was simply being consistent, treating the kids like adults and holding them accountable.

I have a buddy (who happens to be a racial minority) who, a number of years ago, was interviewing with a few of Ivy League schools (he’s also exceptionally bright). One of the admissions administrators at Harvard told him “we have programs that can help people like you succeed”, he immediately scratched Harvard off his list.

Black males are the perfect “progressive” victim class.

Big government care unmoors black males from personal, family, and community responsibility, which decimates communities, which then need big government “solutions” in the form of welfare, affirmative action, and prisons. It becomes a positive feedback loop feeding government, the public sector unions, and the prison system.

If only it were just more of the same. Typical Dem solution is to double down...if it didn’t work last time, it’s because we didn’t spend enough money! Spend twice as much and it’s bound to work!

And our dumbed-down populace keeps re-electing them.
