...Obama spoke passionately about the importance of education to the African-American community in a commencement address Friday...

Back [when the school was founded], people were hungry to learn."

But Obama said too much of the black community has lost that desire.

Who needs education when the government is going to take care of you from cradle to grave?

She is right about something. Instead of worrying about the size of someone’s butt, she should have, and could have made creating a desire for an education her work as First Lady. What a difference she could have made.

People are naturally drawn to and actively participate in activities which they naturally excel at. Musicians and athletes dedicate much time to those pursuits not out of a sense of obligation, but rather because those activities are what they naturally excel at and thus love. Blacks, on average, have lower IQs and as a result are not as drawn to reading and learning as other races. Go ahead and crucify me for speaking an uncomfortable truth, but it’s a truth nonetheless.

Obama Consoles Student After Failing To Answer Math Problem: ‘Subtraction Is Tougher Than Addition’

Shanniqua can cook dinner for her 8 children for $22.50 per night. She gets $2,431 a month welfare and will receive and additional $248 a month per child if she has even more children. If her Section 8 Housing check goes up 15% next year, but her landlord wants to raise the rent by 25%, how many children should she have to keep up with expenses?

I read an article once that even her high paying Affirmative Action job was a "burden" to her. She was so lazy herself that the other Affirmative Action employees complained.

I will applaud her for saying it. There is no comparison between the blacks who built that university 150 years ago and a black person who thinks education is "acting white." Slaves were not allowed to learn how to read, and within one generation were largely as literate as the rest of the population, despite few resources and a lot of discrimination.

When I was younger, we used to play a board game “Risk”.

When you got a certain big windfall of armies, you would make the big move and try to “run the table”. Sometimes it worked.

The socialists are trying to do that right now.

I am dedicated to the concept that this attempt, at least, is premature in the USA and will not succeed.

I have read the Book, and know these days are numbered, but do not intend to curl up in a ball awaiting the end of this age.

Thanks for all your work!

Michelle Obama speaks of 'hunger' for education [BO's wife says blacks don't want to learn]

Well D'uh!

Most of us had that figured out all by ourselves.
Since the mid sixties, our society has been forced, by a few well meaning ignoramuses to support an enormous army of indolent CINOs (Citizens In Name Only.)

What do you call mammals which have no conscious purpose?
Which cannot feed itself?
Which is virtually a slave to a lifelong parasitic existence?

Usually they are most commonly called pets.
When human, they are called welfare recipients, aka the 51%.

And yes, they are immune to the drive, or even the need do ever learn anything of positive use to the larger society. Why expend the energy if it can be obtained with no effort?
This unique group has been growing exponentially for the last 50 years.

I have noticed a difference between males and females, though. At work I encounter a significant percentage of black women who have gotten an education, worked hard, and made something of themselves. Sadly, their culture does nothing to encourage its young men to be responsible. Many of these accomplished women are never-married mothers - but not welfare-dependents. The number of educated professional black men has dwindled almost to invisibility.

Yeah, that's crap. There have been brilliant blacks throughout history. "African-Americans" have a different story.

During the cold war, the Soviets waged a propaganda war on inner city blacks transforming their cultural attitude to what we see today...ie If you are black, you must be a socialist. The NAACP and other race baiters have done a bang-up job keeping it that way.

The main difference between black people and white people is...their skin color...which is trivial.

Yet every IQ test and standardized test ever given shows my statement to be correct that black people, on average, have the lowest IQs, score the lowest on tests, and perform the worst academically. Nobody disputes this truth, but instead people posit different theories as to why the intellectual gap exists.

The fact that you cite “brilliant blacks throughout history” evidences that you don’t understand the concept of an average. I did not suggest that there hasn’t been brilliant blacks throughout history. Obviously there has been and always will be. That, however, does not refute the truth about the IQ difference which remains constant at one standard deviation.

Try actually studying the topic before summarily dismissing it based on your PC feelings.

You know, I’ve spent a lot of time working with a lot of different folks, including a lot of black, hard-working people in the South. IQ tests aren’t the only measure of intelligence, and there are a lot of factors that go into making someone a success. I’ve also worked with Ivy League educated men who couldn’t lead their dicks to the bathroom. The truth is that the Black community is being corrupted with too many giveaways and people like Al Sharpton.

“The main difference between black people and white people is...their skin color...which is trivial.”

There are cultural differences (such as perceiving education as “white”) that have played no small part in the marginalization of blacks; these cannot be ignored. The poverty industry has simply grown too large (and employs far too many whites) to make any attempt to fix it. There is no biological difference in brains here; the difference is what is done with them. As an increasing number of whites fall into the same habits, it will be more difficult to ascribe any racial significance to them.

For decades the car thieves and unwed mothers in my town were white.

I agree....I think many black women are interested in getting out of the cultural rot of that sub culture....otoh, they often cannot see how that ought to affect their religious and political positions.

Really...every IQ test, at what age were they given, before or after cultural indoctrination.

that black people, on average, have the lowest IQs, score the lowest on tests, and perform the worst academically.

Did this include black students from India and Africa? Where what I stated didn't happen?

"Blacks" aren't "Blacks" Many black immigrants laugh at how stupid "African-Americans" are, just like the Japanese laugh at how stupid Americans are.

Nobody disputes this truth

Right, just like "Global Warming" huh?

Your "studies" are based on flawed data and designed to reach the racist conclusion of white supremacy.

How about a study comparing the children of black conservatives, and adopted black children of white parents, to the IQs of white dropouts, and see what that average tells you.
