The truth?

The truth is young black unemployment is over 60%.

Yet for votes they want to let 20 million entry level workers into the Country.

The truth is...Nobody in DC gives a damn about these kids. Nobody!

So what's the excuse for the poor black achievement gaps compared to whites? They both get exactly the same education in public schools, and if your poor, chances are you'll get a good portion of your college tuition paid for.

If nobody gave a damn about these kids, the federal government wouldn't have created affirmative action, create black history week to help black students focus on successful black role models, enable them to go on welfare, and offer them federal grants to pay for almost their entire college tuition. For as many black families who are living in poverty, not many take advantage of the federal grants available to them because many of them don't have the ambition to attend college or their GPA is to low to be accepted into college. You would be surprised how many black athletes that have a GPA lower than 2.0 get full scholarships based solely on their athletic abilities. Most use it in hopes on making it to the pros instead of using it to educate themselves well attending college.

If parents of black youth don't instill the importance of education and serve as a strong role model for their children, their children will not succeed, it's that simple. Being poor has nothing to do with it. Immigrants who came to this country were as poor as black families in this country. They were motivated by their parents to succeed and they climbed their way out of poverty. They didn't have the programs that are available to the poor today.

I'm extremely concerned about the future of this country. If our society doesn't start cracking down on these kids at an early age and give them real consequences for their actions, the future generations are only going to get worst. The kids in this generation who understand the word respect, consideration and the importance of being motivated and educated will be the leaders of tomorrow. Unfortunately, the uneducated and incompetent majority will be a drain on society and bankrupt the welfare system. If they're not on welfare they'll be locked away in jail.

Forget arresting these kids as juveniles. If they're going to be involved in heinous crimes like this, they need to be tried as adults. I don't care how old they are, any person who would treat another human being like a piece of trash, deserves to be put in a cell with individuals who will beat them like the trash they are.

Instead of charter schools, we need boot camp schools for students who need discipline that don't get it at home. Good teens shouldn't have to attend school with kids who are a bad influence or are disruptive to the educational environment. Our educational system is in shambles. These kids have no fear and they know there are no consequences. Without competent and educated workers, the U.S. will seal its fate. It's really a shame.

There’s only one thing that we can blame for this mob and gang violence and it’s the bloody, violent, culture of America that produces a mass shooting almost daily, such as the recent one again at Fort Hood.

Violence, guns, racism, sexism, hatred, division, materialism, rape, child abuse, excess capitalism, selfishness, no love in the country and you have all this depraved violence that goes on and on and on in this land of blood, murder, and violence with no solution in sight.

It is tempting to blame one person for this but that is the height of folly and marginalizes this horrible problem that plaques this country and dooms the children to further degradation.

SO, wait ... is Obama the dictator guy who is imposing a totalitarian, draconian, communistic, atheistic imperial police state, or is he the weak, snivelling, hapless fool that is inspiring gang violence across the country hidden from everyone except those watching Fox News?

I'm confused.

Obama is confused too !! He's good at doing both of the above !!!

And he is certainly proud of his "selective" enforcements and executive privilege proclamations !!!

And don't forget he changes his mind a lot.

You forgot another thing. Excessive insanity. As shown by those who keep saying Obama is to blame for gang violence. But keep saying it. It is side splitting.

So essentially, you're admitting that the anti-Obama crap is illogical, unreasonable, dishonest partisan rubbish, and that no matter what he does or when he does it in your book it will be wrong.

Got it.

I was about to read your post. But once you said it Obama's fault I bailed. Funny how people can hate the man so much that everything becomes his fault. Obama has become the scapegoat for everything bad that has ever happened....\

You just go ahead and blame Obama instead of the failure of Society at large. Gotta tell ya I am can't wait till the republican white boys are back in charge, cause buddy everything is gonna be their fault next....

When you place all of the blame for things like this on Obama you are ignoring the actual problems that led to it.


This is where I don't call you any names or insult your intelligence ____________________________.


I'm not blaming Obama, but a doctor of psychology happens to be. Last I checked, Obama has been America's leader for.. how many years?

How the youth changed during his 2 terms means alot for the next generation of (whats left of) Afmerika.


The doctor is an idiot. Flash mobs started back in early 2000 so this stuff was going on before Obama took office so who does the blame go to then?

Hm, I didn't even notice the Obama part...Yeah that's dumb.

This is what poverty creates. Obama didn't create the wealth disparity that pushes millions to the margins, he's just yet another man in a suit serving the plutocracy. And let's not forget that 1963 wasn't that long ago, racial tensions are still quite alive.


1963 was more than half a century ago. When does time become a non-factor? We have a black president for gods sake. 11% of the population is black. So more than just blacks voted for the guy. We have blacks at the highest levels of office now and prior - Secretary of State, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and many others captains of industry. I'm frankly tired of the excuses. The black community needs to step up instead of falling back on excuses. When are the leaders of the black community going to not stand for this any more and point the finger where they need to be pointed?

I saw the train coming. I didn't know when it was going to get here, but it has indeed arrived.

ATS you were the stuff of legend. I am truly sorry you have become less than a shadow of yourself. I will, no I do miss you, but this has to be the straw that broke the camels back.

Guys. I can no longer tolerant this level of ignorance.

I have got to cut this place loose.

By the way, I am not an Obama supporter. I am not leaving because of the ridiculous attacks on the President. All presidents get stupid attacks. Obama has nothing to do with it; and that may be part of my point.

No it's not. As the first black president he needed to step forward and lead, set an example and demand of other black leaders to take an active roll in communities and not further the excuses that has plagued this country for decades. Jim Crow is long dead.

3 Chics Politico gives mad props to President Obama on his accomplishments since being in office. It’s pretty impressive!


1. Ordered all federal agencies to undertake a study and make recommendations for ways to cut spending
2. Ordered a review of all federal operations to identify and cut wasteful spending and practices
3. Instituted enforcement for equal pay for women
4. Beginning the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq
5. Families of fallen soldiers have expenses covered to be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB
6 Ended media blackout on war casualties; reporting full information


Oh, and he built a swing set for the girls outside the Oval Office.

All in all, I'd say he's not doing half bad.

101. Used the IRS to wipe out his competition.

104. Spies on every American.

105. Made Edward Snowden seem like an honest guy.

Yes, busy indeed.

Funny the Tea Party still seems to be here. Further, it has been proven multiple times that the IRS targeted "progressive" and "Liberal" groups as well. Not to mention that there has never been the tiniest shred of evidence that Obama had anything to do with the Field Office's actions at all.




102. Left Americans to be killed by angry mobs in Benghazi.



Every official investigation says differently. As do the facts. Official Senate Report on Benghazi


103. Lied repeatedly to pass a law he changes everyday.


Meaningless partisan hyperbole.


104. Spies on every American.


Continuing a grand tradition begun in 2002 or earlier by President Bush and arguably since the 1950s.


105. Made Edward Snowden seem like an honest guy.


An honest guy? A cowardly traitor perhaps. IN my opinion only.


So, you came up with five (5) misinformed statements against ninety (90).

Seems to me a clear winner.

Why don't you add Socialist, Kenyan, Communist, Fascist BoogeyMan to complete your set?

That will at least bring you to 10 ...

yeah, I don't understand the relationship between Obama and these attacks either. Maybe these are the "young men of color" Obama described in the 2014 SOTU who face especially tough odds and require new initiatives to reach their full potential. If so he better start initiating!

Also in fairness we should understand it's not just semi organized mobs of young men of color that commit these heinous acts. There are real organized mafias out there. Highly dangerous gangs like MS13, and others who commit violent crimes much worse than this.

As others have pointed out, it is suspect that none of these stories ever really see the press though. I wonder if that is because the cities suppressing it, the police are suppressing it, or the MSM doesn't believe it would help increase ratings??
