Is The Problem For Black Americans “Racism” Or A Quandary Of Their Own Making?

black problem…..  if we conclude that racial discrimination is the major cause of black problems when it isn’t, then effective solutions will be elusive forever. To begin to get a handle on the answer, let’s pull up a few historical facts about black Americans.

In 1950, female-headed households were 18 percent of the black population. Today it’s close to 70 percent. One study of 19th-century slave families found that in up to three-fourths of the families, all the children lived with the biological mother and father. In 1925 New York City, 85 percent of black households were two-parent households. Herbert Gutman, author of “The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom, 1750-1925,” reports, “Five in six children under the age of six lived with both parents.”

A study of 1880 family structure in Philadelphia found that three-quarters of black families were nuclear families (composed of two parents and children). What is significant, given today’s arguments that slavery and discrimination decimated the black family structure, is the fact that years ago, there were only slight differences in family structure among racial groups.

Coupled with the dramatic breakdown in the black family structure has been an astonishing growth in the rate of illegitimacy. The black illegitimacy rate in 1940 was about 14 percent; black illegitimacy today is over 70 percent, and in some cities, it is over 80 percent.

Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. ……  The black academic achievement gap is a disaster. Often, black 12th-graders can read, write and deal with scientific and math problems at only the

level of white sixth-graders. This doesn’t bode well for success in college or passing civil service exams. If it is assumed that problems that have a devastating impact on black well-being are a result of racial discrimination and a “legacy of slavery” when they are not, resources spent pursuing a civil rights strategy will yield disappointing results.” read more from Walter E. Williams:   here

The problem is not racism.  It’s not prejudice.  There are many black Americans who have not only succeeded, but surpassed what most free Americans would ever hope to achieve.  What’s the difference?  What is the gap between success and poverty, failure, drug usage and prison time?

Dare I say moral and ethical values.

Welfare has achieved its intended purpose, which was to created a political dependent class (voting Democrats).  No need for a wage earning father — there would be government money for that.  How’d that work out?

Quite often, I’ve heard a black child reciting how proud he or she is of their poor grammar and English, so they “don’t sound white”.  So, sounding stupid and uneducated is an achievement?  Says who? Who’s teaching these kids that being education, speaking accurately and well, knowing how to read and do basic math, is just “being white”?  A racist, I should imagine.

When government interfered and made available “free money” for ‘Welfare mothers’, our nation took a turn for the worse.  Welfare should not be a lifestyle but a temporary helping hand.  A woman in church, who worked in the local Welfare office, had a black woman with her 5 kids come in the office.  One of the children, about 8 years old, asked Mrs. Welfare Worker if “she would be his worker when he grew up?”  She was stunned and speechless.

Black on black murder is out of control.  Chicago is a ‘killing zone’ for black, male youths, who apparently have nothing better to do than join gangs and murder each other.  This isn’t the result of “racism” — it’s the result of poor parenting, lack of control, education and respect for God and your neighbor.

There are many poor people who don’t commit crimes but grow up to be successful. That actually describes the majority of Americans!  A basic education is needed to know your country, your society, your history and so that we don’t speak like idiot buffoons when applying for a job.  And please note, I do not added college in that education.  There are quite a few wealthy Americans who didn’t go to college — some created Microsoft.

Hating, rioting and condemning an “innocent til proven guilty” man is something black Americans hated and fought against 100 years ago.  And now, out of ignorance and hated, prejudge too many situations… like Trayvon Martin and this Michael Black.  Too many in “the black community” are ready to embrace finding someone guilty . . . out of racial hatred.  Isn’t that the same thing you condemn from non blacks?

People like Eric Holder continue to fuel the fires of racism with comments like Americans are a “nation of cowards” and then maligns non blacks for addressing the topic.

Al Sharpton’s entire life has been fighting — not for “peace” or “justice”, but at keeping racial hatred of blacks toward whites, alive and well.

Jesse Jackson got rich blackmailing companies on racially, division basis.  Another race hustler for political and financial gains.

Black Americans should find real role models:  Walter E. Williams, Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, Col. Allen West….for starts.  They don’t preach hate, but ethics, work, education and responsibility.  It worked for them; it works for all that use it.

    Reblogged this on My Soapbox and commented:
    Right Punditry does her homework and has all the statistics to back up her points. She does a much better job than I ever could but I must say that I believe this needs to be reblogged, and reblogged, and reblogged, until it get all the way around to everyone so perhaps it can make a difference. Another good example is also Bill Cosby. He has been a very good role model and been very outspoken about things. Please read this all the way through. Its worth your time!

    Mr. Walter Williams needs to do some research on racism , he clearly does not fully understand it. I would suggest he reads some of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing’s work. Also he should be aware that people kill or attack the people they live near. Since most cities are still very segregated blacks kill blacks and whites kill whites. 84% of white people are killed by other whites , so white on white violence is out of control . Racism and white supremacy is the root cause of black peoples problems . Mr Williams must go to the root of the problem not the surface . I guess he’s only doing what he is paid to do . Spread lies !!!!!!

      Since Mr. Williams has been a black American all his life, he IS familiar with racism. He doesn’t live with a bitter chip on his shoulder, as so many choose to do. Racism COMES from people of all different colors of skin… I guess you look at your own attitude, before condemning others.

        Very well ‘said’! Racism does come in all colors and is an attitude. Some say reverse racism but that isn’t a correct term. Racism is racism, period. And there is plenty to go around and it isn’t so much white against black anymore, though there are your media hungry so-called Rev.’s such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and even the worst Jeremiah Wright who want to keep telling black Americans that white Americans are keeping them down when it is their own doing that is keeping them down. This will probably be considered a racist statement but it is not. Thank you Right Punditry for standing up for what IS right! We stand with you!

    You said it well, nana. Anyone can be “racist” or a better term – prejudice. I see it quite often, coming from black Americans…. it’s promoted like Professional Bigot, Al Sharpton, who is no reverend. Holding on to old hatreds is a sure way to harm your soul.

      And let’s not forget how much money it makes them! You properly used the word bigot in reference to Sharpton. Prejudice is something that is often necessary and often over done. For example, you cross the street because there is a bunch of black men hanging out on the corner where you would need to pass, their pants are halfway down their legs, their caps are on sideways, and your inward alarm goes off. This is a necessary prejudice. If it was a group of white men in the same situation you would feel the same way, if it was a group of hispanic men you would feel the same way. It’s a protective mechanism. But that doesn’t mean you are prejudiced against the race, just that group you are encountering.

      I’m so tired of the race card being played. If the schools are not doing well in their districts, then the parents need to DO something about it. The students need to take responsibility for their education. I went to school with black kids. We each had the same opportunity to get the same education. But who did their homework or who was hanging out on the corner every night? (Not prostituting, just hanging around with friends ’til late at night.) How is that anyone’s fault but the student and the parent’s fault? Stop pointing the finger at the government. When you do that you have 3 more pointing back at you! Take up the responsibility. If you feel you aren’t being represented, then run for the school board! Run for the City Council. DO SOMETHING but complain and blame. Throwing more money at the problem won’t solve the problem. I’m sorry. It’s just the truth.

      Thanks for ‘hearing’ me out, RightyPunditry!

        “spread lies” indeed is a problem… and it’s continually done by Liberals and fools like Sharpton. The Democrat Party is grounded in lies to the point there’s nothing else. Shame on those political lies, who choose to spread their hate, bigotry and stupidity to those who listen to them.

        You get a resounding AMEN on that! I am always able to find out who is the Liberal Democrat simply by their tactics. The first thing they do is start name-calling. That gives them away, right away! And I say, along with you, shame on them!!!
