He could say the same thing about generations of poor whites living here in the Ozarks.

A study comparing black male students from two-parent upper middle class families in the black bourgeois bastion of Prince George’s Co to white male students from poor families in West Virginia showed that the black male students had lower scores, higher drop-out rates and higher crime rates than the poorer white males.

The ‘culture’ at blame is called liberalism.

In 1968 a book was released by the man who is now President Obama scientific advisor. This book was called ‘The Population Bomb’.

This book set in course the liberal agenda. That agenda is spelled out in a memo called the Jaffe Memo(http://static.infowars.com/2011/12/i/article-images/jaffememo-watersterilants.pdf). One of the goal of the liberal agenda is to weaken the family structure. The idea is that it is this family dynamic that results in children being born, and therefore it must be weakened to lower the population growth.

The side effect is that children who are still born, despite the best effort of those supporting this liberal agenda, are born into a culture that is not conducive to child development.

Read the memo. Look at how much of today’s ‘liberalism’ was defined in 1969!

I totally agree with Dr. Graglia's observation and fungoking's post. Not only should children be raised by man / woman, parents / guardians, but it's arguably just as important for one or both of the parents to have a college education, preferably the parent that stays at the house to raise the kids if such is the case.

It's the lack of a complete family structure, not race, that he is pointing to. It just happens that in most venues, the Black family has collapsed further than the white family. Daniel Patrick Moynihan elucidated this, way back in the mid 60's. It was true then and is true now, although white families now are trying hard to beat the blacks and hispanics in the race to the bottom.

I went to high school with a guy who could have become a senator but decided not to run. He was a Christian since he was 12 years old. His father was an alcoholic sharecropper.

Then there are those who grow up in wealthy households who turn out to be worthless.

The bottom line is some are smarter than others and some apply themselves more.

absolutely correct.... however, those kids aren’t being promoted into programs they aren’t ready for, just so some leftists can feel good about themselves.

Most of the arguments we make about race, are actually statements regarding economic class.
