Now American Blacks are caught in a bad spot......on one side stand the WHITES with their police, courts and prisons and on the other stand the HISPANICS and the Blacks are caught in-between. Alot of rioting has been going on in the LA schools and prisons between Blacks and Hispanics and hispanic numbers grow stronger every day.
So the Blacks are losing turf to the Hispanics in their neighborhoods, schools and prisons and they can ether fight harder and become more violent of they can "get smart" and work their way outta the hood and join the regular folk in the suburbs.
It all starts at home.....when Dad decides to become a parent and fufill his obligation and raise his child to be a success....thats where it all begins!!
Look at the Asians, how far they have come in America...because they have a tight family unit and they work hard at school. Black people should take some lessons from the Asians.
One way to get Black men outta prison is to let the non-violent offenders out (drugs) and try and help them instead of locking them up....thats a start.

Since we're guessing, I'll guess too. The average prisoner IQ is..90 something, acccording to me. So if that's right, it's right about average. Over 80% of Americans have a lower IQ than the average college graduate (120). So I'm pretty confident that the average American rests comfortably below 100, not much of course, 5 or 6 points.
If there is a difference between average citizen IQ and average prisoner IQ, it's minute.
But please, prove me wrong with something other than speculation.
