Racist jokes no big deal to GOP - Page 5

Hard racism is down, we have a black President, and every news show and commercial has a token black person in it. I guess those are all counted as 'successes'. Good. But inner city poverty, crime, imprisonment, children born out of wedlock, etc are all as bad or worse than in the Civil Rights Era. Black enrollment in major colleges was low or nonexistant at the time, hence the 'Historically Black Colleges'. Now, young black men are more likely to go to prison than college.

What is that about insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the different results?

It is NOT the same or worse! Sure, it's not great, but it's light years from "same or worse".

Segregated working class schools had comparable test scores at the time. Now the predominantly black, though not explicitly segregated, schools are typically in the FAIL catagory.

70%+ unemployment in inner cities is ok with you?

edit - just noticed/remembered you're in Washington DC. I guess it's sort of the beacon of everything that's wrong in America. An incredibly rich city with rampent crime and poverty right along the edges of the richest and most powerful. Is there a middle class in Washington?

It depends on what metrics you use. For instance as far as out of wedlock births the situation is worse. In a lot of crime stats the situation is worse. etc..

No, it's not but it's not as bad as it was 40 years ago and 70% unemployment in the inner cities? Where is that figure from? I can't see that coming from Labor.

Have you ever considered being a low level "activist" for thew GOP? You could work in internet recruitment.

# 3 New Jersey: 358
# 4 Virginia: 200
# 5 Ohio: 184
# 6 Massachusetts: 167
# 7 New York: 145
# 8 Maryland: 135
# 9 Texas: 124
# 10 Florida: 114

So, out of the top 10 states for hate crimes, 9 of them went to Obama.

Are you guys really confused about these statistics? These are I think seven or eight of the largest states in the country, which also happen to contain some of the countries biggest and most economically dichotomous (relatively bigger peaks and valleys) metropolitan and suburban areas. With the exception of Texas, Virginia and sometimes Ohio, I'd say they're all liberal states = more likely to recognize racism that goes on.

Apparently all it takes is a blog and anger to be considered one. I could do that. OBama is eating out children with ACORN socialists!!!

This one tackles abortion.

You've heard about the big controversy on when life begins. In Jewish tradition the fetus is not considered viable until after it graduates from medical school.

Jews, Italians and Blacks are included:

Displaying Full Joke - Italian, Black, and a Jew!
Three best friends are at the corner bar on a Friday night as usual. One of them is an Italian, one is Black and the other is Jewish.They are sitting around drinking some beers, and they make a wager. They bet who can make love to their wife and make her scream the longest. They agree to return next week and compare.Next week, they all arrive at the bar at the usual time with smiles on their faces. The Italian guy says, "I definitely won. I took my wife out to dinner, bought her roses, then took her home and made love to her. She screamed for an hour."The black guy says, "Man, that's nothin'. I cooked dinner for my wife, and for dessert I poured honey all over her and made love to her like never before. She screamed for two hours."The Jewish guy chimes in, " I got you both beat. I made love to my wife for 3 minutes, pulled out, then wiped my schmeckel on the curtain. She's still screaming!"

In 2003, Labor said 40% of young black men were unemployed.

Detriot Urban League says 60% among young black males (and that was before the Great Recession).

Edit - granted, there may be some self-selection out of the labor market.

I don't think anyone in this thread expressed any confusion about the statistics.

HAHA

I used to live on the border of queens and nassua county. Black kids would ride in on a bicycle with a kid on the back pegs. It was a going joke that they were there to get bicycles. But thats what they did.

So we still joke about it whenever we see black kids riding on pegs on the back of a bike.


I guess to some that is racist. I mean pointing out what really did happen and laughing about it is a bad thing. Has no effect on how I conduct my life or interact with others.



However being a politician and joking around about other races is another matter. I expect those in power to be better then me. And if I ever get into politics I would act better myself. I would want to set a clear example that I respect everyone. But I also wouldn't play favorites and would respect the constitution so I would never make it anyways.
