It ain't rocket science. What would truly work is more black children being born to intact families with a mummy and daddy. Their poverty rates and crime rates under such circumstances are actually lower than white kids born under similar circumstances.
Maybe if blacks listened a lot more to leaders like Dr. Thomas Sowell and a lot less to leaders like Eric Holder, more of them could join that elite group.
Goes for white kids, too!
I am trying to find a link to one of the studies to which I refer, but I have seen studies which showed that black males from two parent families of higher SES had higher crime rates, lower academic scores, and higher drop-out rates than white males from families of lower SES. One of the studies compared young black males in Prince George’s Co (black bourgeois bastion of well-to-do blacks, mostly government employees) with white males in West Virginia from poor families.
I have requested help in finding a link to one of the studies at another forum, as soon as I find one I will post it. (Thought I had bookmarked them, but can’t seem to find them in my disorganised jumbled folder).
