The cycle of poverty starts with poor choices of individuals. It does not start with any wrong doing committed by one group on another.

Once this current electorate has destroyed the Republic, words like this must be remembered so that the country that replaces it is based on such founding logic. We must understand at that the time after the destruction which IS coming soon that to be a FREE PEOPLE, we must also be a RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE. Otherwise, our children, grandchildren, and beyond are serfs for many generations before these “self evident truths” are rediscovered.

Why do you troll people on this site? Do the people who make those comments pick your pocket or break your arm?
Bless your heart!

If you do any two of the following, you have a 95% chance of spending the rest of your life in poverty regardless of you demographic group:
join a gang, break the law / spend time in prison,
get addicted to drugs (legal or illegal),
have a child out of wedlock with before you graduate high school,
enter into any form of government assistance for your “livelihood”,
and go into extreme debt / do not live within your means.
It is not a country treating a demographic group bad. Rather, it is about poor decisions people make. I do not own the stupid a$$ decisions others make.
You are absolutely correct. Freedom allows us to work and benefit from our labor as people of all cultures have done in this country. Freedom also allows us to whine and complain and play the "victim" card. Unfortunately, "victim hood" takes on a life of its own and robs future generations of the opportunity to gain self confidence and be part of all America has to offer.
When I was a kid, there was a school organization called Junior Achievement. Anybody remember it? The purpose was to teach entrepreneurship by helping kids working on teams to generate ideas for a product, write a development plan, produce the product, market and advertise the product, and reap the financial outcome. I believe a lot of inner city schools would help their students tremendously by teaching them how to be creative and inventive. Too many young people today think you have to be an athlete, a rapper, or join a gang to achieve "status." If only Community leaders and Black professionals would come into schools and help kids see what thinking like an entrepreneur can achieve.
Your'e using a set of reasoning to make your point, that a leads to b and so on. While such reasoning may have been effective with some during the decades our country was simply circling the drain, we are currently in the post-era of way-down-the-rabbit-hole. This is the era of emotion and hypocrisy. Where 2+2=racist. Where a lefty can look you straight in the eye and defend feminism, unless a woman is raped by a muslim immigrant and complains, which that same lefty will viciously turn on feminism to defend muslims. Because that feels better in that moment. This is the great era of ‘feels good right now.’ Sadly, your point is lost on an electorate who voted for obama twice and is happily going to elect hillary who will continue handing out the freebies and going after anyone that dares calls a cake, a cake.

Yeah, right….Here is a truth that the Black Liars Murdering needs to hear….
Fact: Black people have 5 times the number of police interaction each year than white people.
Fact: Police kill white people at more-or-less double the rate of black people.
This means that once a police encounter starts a white person has a higher chance of being dead at the end of it than does a black person.
i.e. More white people die per police encounter than black people per encounter. Going to this per encounter level removes the greater population factor.
This is the fact that matters because If there was institutional racism toward black people as root cause, these facts could not be true.
Here is the root cause:
The most violent cities are cities where local politics is 100% controlled by progressive (of any race) for a decade or more. Race is NOT the major correlating factor, but the evil philosophy of progressive thought is.
Why? Progressive rule destroys the family for the sake of progressive power. This causes an amoral/immoral area where lawlessness reigns. The demographic does not matter in the local area the impact is always the same.
So, right now…Black live matter more to at least the police….
There is a problem in the criminal justice system not valuing black lives as much as white lives. The murderer of a black man will not get as severe a punishment as the murderer of a white guy. The problem is that the murderer of a black guy was also black, so in effect black criminals get off easier than white criminals.

We should have fired warning shots because if we had sent these ships to the bottom of the sea, it would have be a warning to the next batch.
Hell, she doesn't answer questions under oath. Why voluntarily not answer questions when she could be drinking, playing with Huma, buying Mao tents and shoes, meeting donors and taking bribes? She's got priorities.

I think the progressives are trying to drive enough Christians out of the public school system so that they can come after private Christian schools and home school parents as a “threat” to public education.
Looks like Clinton’s server wasn’t secure either.
Oops. Typed that and then went back and read the comments others made. Consider mine to be straight from the Department of Redundancy Department.

Phelps responded to his situation the right way and grew. You are looking at two different positions on the timeline.
Lochte is Phelps JUST AFTER the second DUI. The key is how will Lochte respond from this point. What glide path will he put his life on now?
He is going to grow as Phelps did, OR he is going to spiral deeper out of control. It all depends on how he faces this mistake. It all depends on what life choices he makes now.

Takes a bit of work to make Martin Sheen look like an okay guy to hang out with….
But, Lochte has accomplished the improbable.
He will either learn and grow, or he will spiral deeper out of control. No “lateral option” when these kind of life lessons happen.
This poll has him surpassing that now.
This is the problem with many Breitbart readers, they never research beyond what fits their tiny world view. The LA Times polls from the “same group of people” each time. They go on to explain to you that no matter how their respondents answer, the exact same respondents predict Clinton to win by a large margin.

Why would they want to be there? You can’t loot and burn buildings that are flooded.
“Where Are Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers During the Baton Rouge Louisiana Flood Crisis?”
Counting their $100 million dollars thanks to Soros and others of his ilk and deciding which community to devastate next.
There was a Louisiana Navy member talking on Sean Hannity show today saying they had been working along side the Black Panthers
I would also say that they can't point to a white male that caused the flood either, but that doesn't seem to matter any longer, per Milwaukee.
Besides that, they'll get their nice shoes all waterlogged and muddy! They might even drop their smartphones in the floodwaters!
Well duh, BLM is not there because they are not paid to be there. Soon as the trip is scheduled, the buses organized, the useful idiots are rounded up and paid, they will be on their way.
How about the president? Ask where he is during this disaster . Answer: Martha’s Vineyard playing golf of course. I recall GW catching grief for days on end when he ‘flew over New Orleans’. BHO missing again and the media is predictably quiet.
Only city rats needs free stuff. Country rats are SOL.
actually I heard on the Radio (on Hannity no less) that the Black Panthers were part of the “Cajun Navy”, out rescuing people.
And why isn't the black community asking Obama to pull another $400,000,000 out of petty cash to help Louisiana? Seems to me the residents of LA are more deserving than Iran.
jimbo: Rush Limbaugh defined the BLM. They're a reconstituted form of OWS (Occupy Wall Street), bought and paid for as a tool of the Left. That's all the bums truly are.
Your are correct! Football season just around the corner and they need a good riot to go shopping for a new TV. Flood waters makes it difficult to carry one out of a store.
Kudos to Anthony Brian Logan for asking this question and the other black man for responding with what he has seen..
These black men are not acting very wisely. They should be more careful, the black terrorists may cast a spell on them and turn them white.
You cannot expect lowlife racist scumbags to go and help people in desperate times.
Tony Logan may not have been there either or he would have saw Trump and his whole entourage get of the Trump plane and start handing out food packages to people!
On a similar note, I'll be more willing to consider reparations for slavery when they don't continue to choose slavery by voting 95% for democratic candidates and policies.
You want help during a crisis such as this? Look to the white man. You dont like that comment? Too F**king bad. Its simply the way it is. If you saw BLM on boats, in the water, they would not be filled with refugees. They will be filled with loot. And every one of you knows it. Turn towards white culture to find your compassion and charity.

When the President does it, that means that it’s not illegal.
