    No, thanks No interest in being shamed by a "progressive media company". It would be like me sending you Breitbart articles and telling you to become enlightened. My guess is it tells me that as a white person who had parents that got an education and worked hard in order to buy a house in the suburbs, I should feel guilty, as there's someone my age in the Queensbridge projects who didn't have those same advantages. And all of it stems from whites enslaving blacks, stealing their money, incarcerating them, etc. Again, the message is don't bother trying if you're black. Too many invisible forces against you. Continue to have children out of wedlock, work service-industry jobs, live in section 8 housing, and bring your WIC checks to the bodega. I truly feel for a black kid growing up who would be forced to listen to that message. He/she would be better off living on Mars.

    You can call me ignorant all you want. Walk around feeling guilty all your life and see where that gets you.

    No, I don't. It's a crutch for people looking for excuses for why they don't succeed. A black man dies at the hands of a cop and all of a sudden it's some sort of symbol for everything bad in the world. The facts don't bare any of that out. Daniel Shaver died at the hands of a police officer in the most disturbing way I've ever seen with my own eyes. I'm assuming no one on here gave a damn at the time. There certainly weren't any Puma stores looted as a result of it.

    This is insanity. A presidential candidate who supports this type of legislation would lose in a Goldwater/Mondale fashion.

    I'm not going to keep going with you. You have your religion and you can stick to it. The idea that anything I said is racist is factually incorrect and despicable on your part.

    Last post for today, as everyone is just reiterating everything they've already said. I didn't say abandon. Like I said, there are more programs currently in place to help those in poverty than I can fit into this text box. At some point, you have to make the effort too. I don't think I ever mentioned "brutally policing" them. But, yes, there should be cops in those neighborhoods if you're interested in keeping blacks safe.

    They owe themselves and their family a better life than they have. I've repeatedly stated how they can provide a better future for their kids.

    Yes, it's a mighty force. It's absent parents, little household discipline, very little emphasis on education. I don't blame the kids. I blame the parents.

    So go help them. Do all you can. See if it moves the needle. The trillions spent in government programs haven't helped. Maybe billions in reparations will.

    That's the ultimate irony. You're making an argument that blacks have no hope, but I'm the one who's looking down on them? Have a good day. The weather is nice over here.

    This is all very trite. Whether you're white or black, tell your kids that they have no chance for success and don't be shocked if they achieve nothing. If they want to teach their kids that there's a boogeyman out there to get them if they are attempt to succeed, then let me keep my tax dollars because they have no hope anyway. The idea that all blacks are being held down by this invisible force is just insane. I don't know, go to the office parks once in a while, there's plenty of African Americans out there earning a living. Most of them got an education. They pay taxes. I have doubts that any of them would resort to a level of lawlessness that includes burning down a building or stealing sneakers. But I guess they snuck past the society that sought to oppress them.

    No, it's not an overnight solution. You need today's generation to stick around and actually raise their children. I believe that would have an enormous effect on the lives of those children and their prospects over the next decades. Treating them like troglodytes, who have no hope and no purpose helps no one.

    Again, I pay for countless social programs so that those in poverty have food, shelter, medical care, etc. I pay for the extra police needed to patrol their dangerous neighborhoods. I pay for the creation of these charter schools so that they have access to an even better education than their current schools can afford them. There are endless amounts of scholarships made available specifically for African-Americans. In my field, if they are the owner of their business, they are guaranteed a piece of the government contracts that go out for bid. You need to be specific on why they don't have boots after all of that.

    You can believe that if you'd like. I believe the knee on their neck is the upbringing they have within their family structure. None of the endless amounts of social programs we have is going to move that knee.

    You go talk to them. Go into Social Work if you'd like and you can make all the house-calls you please. I don't want to talk to them. If they had a mother and a father around who disciplined them, who made it a requirement for them to perform in the classroom, I don't believe they'd need to turn to drug-dealing as a means to get by. As a taxpayer, I'm often paying for their school breakfast, school lunch, section 8 housing, WIC/EBT. How much more can others do before they lift themselves up and search out something better?
