Skip to comments.Ryan To Meet With Black Lawmakers After "Inner Cities" Uproar [Congressional Black Caucus]
Posted on 04/22/2014 11:20:43 AM PDT by zeestephen
In March, Ryan said during an appearance on Bill Bennett's radio show that there is a "tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning to value the culture of work."

Reid and Pelosi’s fault.
Are they going to ask Ryan how amnesty will affect their constituents?
Ryan is meeting with the CBC that has done nothing for the black Community other than be the sock puppets of the Democrat Elites, talk about a bunch of people with no real jobs!
Why an uproar? He’s right. But now the absence of male responsibility and work ethic is reaching through all US cultures.
Why meet with overseers of the Democrat Plantation?
Most of these people’s livelihood relies on keeping the slave voters down and stupid, constantly asking for more handouts.
Nothing good can come of this,IMO.
My meeting would begin with the statement:
“Tell me where my statement is factually incorrect and we’ll discuss that.”
It's time to start using accurate words again in national debate.
Too bad Paul didn’t get primaried.
I agree. Meeting with the aggrieved and outraged is a losing tactic.
He could suggest they write him nice letters, in cursive, detailing their objections, and he’ll be happy to respond.
To fool people is always easier to prove any greatness.
Why do they do this?
It isn’t like the blacks are ever going to give a ‘Pubbie a significant part of their vote.
You may be on to something...
Did they meet with “Congressional White Caucus” to discuss crime-free neighborhoods?
Why is it that ‘inner-city crime and poverty(read:lazy, uncivilized)’ and ‘black’ always in the same sentence and there is even a ‘go to’ caucus for discussing inner city crime and poverty?
Must be rasis.
Don’t puss out, Paul.
Maybe the black leaders can discuss why the Democrats created welfare keeping minorities living in rat-infested tenements with no hope for a future, but the Democrat-government check kept coming. The Dems created the slum inner city and yet the blacks keep voting for them. Makes no sense.
I think they should grant blanket amnesty and throw these illegals in the inner-city with the other third-world, uncivilized inhabitants. Then everyone can have a pet unicorn and love each other.
Exactly! People with a vested interest in keeping the public funds flowing into the program don’t want to hear that maybe...just maybe...they’re a major part of the problem. I just did a post on why I don’t give to the send-an-underprivileged-kid-to-summer-camp phone calls. The same logic applies here.
I’m sick and tired of seeing the spokesmen for our side cave. But then again, this is the same Paul Ryan who lost the vice presidential debate in 2012 to Joe Biden—which would be like the Whittier College Poets beating the Florida State Seminoles in football.
CBC won’t be happy until all cultures are infested with the rot.
I agree. I've tried asking about a dozen liberals why my tax dollars buy some clown a free cell phone, other than to buy votes. Their response...crickets...
So Ryan will go meet with the plantation owners’ field foremen. Great.
Shakedown. Pure and simple.
My Mama always said to speak the truth, even when it hurts.
My objection these days is to "Social Justice"
How is it fair that the makers spend ~ 40% (arguable fraction, I recognize) of their working time as tax slaves supporting the governments while the takers spend ZER0 % of their time helping the "village"? I submit that Time is a more valuable resource for our time on Erf than the 0bamaBuck$.
My mama tried...;-)
This dummy has backed himself into a corner not by his truthful statement but by apologizing for it.
Please see #27.
He should stand up before them and point out that they are guilty of helping to destroy their own people, whom they pretend to defend.
But I’m afraid that the chance that he will do that is zero.
Ur neglecting the skittles....
Call them (shotgun carryin’) Walkin’ BOSS....
The white guy that didn't say anything about race or skin color has to now genuflect and supplicate before an organization specifically based on skin color, and an organization to which he would not be welcome as a member because he has the wrong skin color.
Just say no. Tell them you meant what you said and they should be addressing the problems and not wonder what you meant.
Grow a pair.
Although Paul Ryan has since devolved to "liberal lite", he still was a passionate, articulate spokesman for Constitutional Conservatism in that 2012 debate. In my opinion, Ryan utterly destroyed Biden with logic and wit. Granted, he wasn't as sharp as Governor Sarah Palin back in 2008 (who could be?) in the VP debate, but Ryan was still very good and had Biden sweating, squirming and tongue-tied. I'm not alone in that assessment as this Live Thread from October 2012 shows.
He told the truth. Why is he apologizing?
We had a large black community here, had been in the same place as long as I can remember. Drove through there the other day and saw nothing but Mexican women and their men with 2-3 tiny kids tagging along while pushing a baby stroller. The Mexicans move in and the blacks move out. Kumbaya.
Nothing will get you in trouble faster than telling the truth.
Years ago when I was younger I called about becoming a ‘Big Brother’.
The first thing they ask was my race. I ask what the hell difference it made what my race was. I just thought they might enjoy working in the garden, going fishing etc.
She said they only needed/wanted black Big Brothers, because...get this...non blacks wouldn’t be a good role model for black kids!!
I $hit you not, those were her exact words.
The truth is not permitted! The truth is RAAACISSST!
Ryan continues to be unimpressive
Must be the melanin.
From the black nationalist perspective, African-Americans and Hispanics “own” poverty and the ghetto. Because of past history, they believe that the supposed white-run federal government is responsible for providing them with reasonable employment or a fair income in lieu of jobs, as well as housing when they can’t afford it on their own.
Their rationale is that the modern federal government (i.e. taxpayers) still owes them compensation for white colonial slave owners and the permanent damage they inflicted on black culture. It’s written in their own literature and spread through racist indoctrination centers such as Trinity Church in Chicago, the Abyssinian Church in NYC, and in every major city throughout the country.
Ryan insulted this belief, which is represented as a reasonable expectation by the CBC when they visit their home districts, by implying that all individuals are responsible for their own work and income, regardless of color. That flies in the face of the race-based excuses and justifications that have been sold to black voters in depressed urban areas, in order to explain their plight. It can’t be their responsibility, therefore Ryan has insulted them.
That racial mythology and biased perspective is upheld by their community leaders and elected representatives, when they meet with their constituents. But that’s not the public face we see when they come to Washington.
Tell them to pull their pants up and stop flashing gang signs and talk like an adult and stop blaming everyone. Geez, people from around the world come here and see nothing but opportunities. The democrat party has succeeded in keeping these people in that inner city.
Try moving out and voting republican.
I’m totally over Ryan.
