Challenges for Black People: Part II

Here’s an experiment. Meet with black people such as Reps. John Conyers (age 87), Charles Rangel (86), Eddie Bernice Johnson (80), Alcee Hastings (79) and Maxine Waters (77). Ask them whether their parents would have tolerated their assaulting and cursing teachers or any other adult. I bet you the rent money that their parents — or any other parents they knew when they were growing up — would not have accepted the grossly disrespectful behavior seen today among many black youngsters, using foul language and racial epithets. Older blacks will tell you that had they behaved that way, they would have felt serious pain in their hind parts. If blacks of past generations would not accept such self-destructive behavior, why should today’s blacks accept it?

Pretty easy to know what the parents of yesteryear would or would not tolerate.
The problem is the socialism of the “Secular Progressive” movement.
Welfare destroys communities and the incentive to do better.
We, as a society, can not afford the lost human creativity.
With almost a third of the population not working, the current “boom” is doomed!
