If 1865, black Americans were well-positioned for freedom. Strong families, strong communities, good work ethic, eager to stand on their own two feet, eager to get an education and make something of themselves. Sure, some white folks wanted to stand in their way, but a lot of white folks wanted them to succeed.

In 2012, black Americans have destroyed their own families, destroyed their own communities, destroyed their own schools, they are dependent and feel entitled. Of course there are many exceptions, but far too many black Americans have no interest in achieving anything at all. Which is a shame, because the only thing standing in their way are themselves.

It will take at least 2 or 3 generations to turn this around once they get started on the task. And I have no idea when they will begin that task.

Look at pictures of the crowds at MLK rallies in the day, black men and women dressed in white shirts and ties, nice dresses, kids clean with nice clothes.

Now look at pictures from a Soetoro rally and see how the black community presents itself today.

Great Society my a$$

Wrong. That was not true in 1865. But it was mostly correct in 1965.

Then, LBJ's Great Society came into existence and coupled with the 60's 'sex, drugs, and rock n' roll' ethos have driven most of the lower income people, including a far higher percentage of blacks on to the Government Welfare Plantation.

Two to three generations later, we have millions of people who have no concept of work, not concept of aspiration to self-improvement, no knowledge of history, and no prospects for the future.

America never had a permanent underclass until the Federal Government created it in the 1960s, and sadly, black Americans are way over represented in that permanent underclass. But there are plenty of whites in that modern slave system as well.

It is not racial. It is economic based on dependency and the Democrat party has done every thing they can to increase more dependency rather than decrease it.
