And the demographic that's leaching off the state should be given a kick up the arse now and again, no?

You're good at this caricature thing.

That's been the plan since 1964.

I suppose that it's preferable that the black unemployment rate remains at approximately double the white unemployment rate for the rest of human history in the US.

I suppose that anyone that comes up with a plan to improve the differential, still less draws attention to it, is engaging in caricaturing, stereotyping and even worse.

I am in favour of addressing the unacceptably high level of black American unemployment - and the only thing that will do so, in the long run, is private sector entrepreneurialism and capitalism.

Our side deal in facts. Yours in appeals to emotionalism. That's the stark difference between the left and the right - your side deals in a culture of complaint, ours in solutions.

This has a lot more to do with class than it does with race. Or, at least, with what the cause is.

Really, most of the problems that afflict the African-American community can be reduced to simple laziness, sho' 'nuff.

I don't know, Peef. You don't think certain races are predisposed to lack ambition, drive, and hard work?

I mean, that makes perfect sense to me!

Clever. But also disgraceful, disgusting and plain wrong.
