Well, the American left is at it again. An article by Hope Yen at Associated Press recently reported:
‘The wealth gaps between whites and minorities have grown to their widest levels since the U.S. government began tabulating them a quarter-century ago. The recession and uneven recovery have erased decades of minority gains, leaving whites on average with 20 times the net worth of blacks and 18 times that of Hispanics, according to an analysis of new Census data.… The median wealth of white U.S. households in 2009 was $113,149, compared to $6,325 for Hispanics and $5,677 for blacks, according to the analysis released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. Those ratios, roughly 20 to 1 for blacks and 18 to 1 for Hispanics, far exceed the low mark of 7 to 1 for both groups reached in 1995, when the nation’s economic expansion lifted many low-income groups to the middle class.’
Then came the article’s sob-story analysis: “I am afraid that this pushes us back to what the Kerner Commission characterized as `two societies, separate and unequal,'” said Roderick Harrison, a former chief of racial statistics at the Census Bureau, referring to the 1960s presidential commission that examined U.S. race relations.
So let’s consider black America here and ask this question: Who controls black America lock, stock and barrel (well, at least 95%)? Answer: American liberalism and the Democrat party.
Question: Who is foisting violent, misogynistic and mindless rap and hip-hop music on millions of young black males? Answer: Ultra-liberal and very wealthy black rap music moguls who are closely tied to the Democrat party.
Question: Who controls the failed public schools that blacks attend in American cities? Answer: Democrat teacher unions. With an iron grip.
Question: Who controls the failed cities where many blacks live? Answer: Corrupt Democrats.
Question: Whose ethos predominates in black America, including the ethos that families do not matter, that the father is irrelevant to the well-being of a child, that the mother is better off on welfare, that the murder and mayhem in black America is just life in the ‘hood? Answer: These all come from the Democrat party.
Question: How can blacks expect to succeed if they have an astronomical dropout rate in the horrible public schools controlled by Democrats? Answer: They cannot expect to succeed. Yet somehow the Pew study seems to suggest that all races should be much more equal.
Question: What is the Democrat party’s policy of decades of government dependency doing to blacks? Answer: It is creating exactly the kind of society that conservatives have warned about – a very unequal one. Because the welfare state destroys personal initiative and creates sloth, poverty and failure.
Here is a simply way to think about this whole dyamic: Imagine you are a 30-year old white man, married, three children, college graduate, engineering school graduate, making a good salary, living in a nice neighborhood and paying astronomical taxes on everything you earn.
Then imagine you are a 30-year old idle black male, uneducated, school dropout, father of three illegitimate children whom you have never met nor paid anything to support. You do not work, you pay no taxes and you survive on the government dole and on drug dealing. You haven’t got a worry in the world because you live day to day and have nothing to hold onto. And the children you fathered are supported by the taxes of the hard-working white man who also is supporting his own family.
Why should the black male have any wealth accumulated at all? After all, wealth is something you build over time through discipline.
This whole charade about racial inequality is just another assault on white Americans who get up and go to work every day and pay taxes and do the right thing. You know, like those Tea Party people. Tens of millions of blacks, on the other hand, have been taught by the Democrat party to be irresponsible, live on the dole, have no cares about illegitimacy or sloth, and complain like hell about their lot in life. Because that is what the Democrats teach to all Americans.
This is a sham. Go and listen to older blacks talk about their lives in the 1930s or 1940s or 1950s before their “civil rights” were granted. Many of them talk wistfully and longingly about a world of close families and safe communities where blacks cared about one another. Because despite their lack of many rights in those years, blacks had four things that liberals and the Democrats have since destroyed – they had their strong families, their businesses, their churches and their morals.
Today the Democrat party has wiped out all four and reduced tens of millions of black Americans to dependency, irresponsibility, violence and stupidity.
Black America should stop listening to the Democrat party and start listening to common sense conservatism if they ever hope to better themselves. Blacks should get right with God, they should take care of their children, they should act properly rather than wearing their pants down low and letting their underwear hang out, and they should start to see the road to success is not easy even for white people – it requires hard work and sacrifice.
The Pew study is intended to make blacks only see the angry and unfair side of the social equation. They are never supposed to question their liberal Democrat masters who have created the great disparity that we see increasing in America today. Because then they might just see the hard and brutal truth.
