Obama Launches Effort to Help Young Men of Color
I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO PISS A LOT OF YOU OFF BUT HOW ABOUT HELPING ALL YOUNG MEN? THEY GET PLENTY OF PERKS OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE DONT ALREADY. WHEN I HAD TO TAKE MY APPRENTICE TEST TO GET INTO THE SCHOOL, I HAD TO SCORE OVER 15 POINTS HIGHER THAN THE MINORITIES BECAUSE THEY GOT 15 POINTS JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR COLOR. THEY HAVE THE NAACP AND MANY OTHER PLACES THAT CATER TO THEM. WHY NOT HELP YOUNG PEOPLE OF EVERY COLOR?
President Barack Obama on Thursday launched an initiative close to his heart, designed to bring local governments, businesses and philanthropies together to help bolster the lives of young men of color.

"There are examples of extraordinary achievement … . We don't need to stereotype and pretend there's only dysfunction out there," Obama said during the White House event. "But, 50 years after Dr. King talked about his dream for America's children, the stubborn fact is that the life chances of the average black or brown child in this country lags behind by almost every measure, and it's worse for boys and young men." http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-ho...lor-n40581

Umm, isn't that stereotyping? Shrug

However, I don't think we'll deny there's a basis for the statement. All efforts thus far haven't done very much to help.

I enjoy every minute of it.

He couldnt give a rats ass about kids that would look like his make believe son.

It is pure and simple, as everything is with this POS, PAYBACK.

Give a man a fish......and he'll vote for you multiple times

Prediction: his sons will NEVER get out of Poverty, as long as "benefits" are their lifestyle.

And that is the Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Communist intention.

50 years of giving "extra" to a class of people who--according to these experts--cannot function without that "extra" and it gets worse the more that is offered.

I cannot imagine what it would be like to be told that you are essentially "worse" than an entire class of people so you need SO MUCH extra help just to be on equal footing.

That would HAVE to demoralize and demotivate them, I simply cannot see how it would not.

Maybe he and his wife could work together on this. They could call it the "Get up and get a fucking job" initiative.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.

And many of us worthless "racists" have said that's been the plan of the ruling class all these years. Shrug At least LBJ was honest/arrogant enough to admit it.

Sadly there IS a big problem with the young black community. No clue what the fix is other than I'm pretty sure slogans are not it. Just saying they should get a job and not father 10 kids does not seem to be working.

That isn't said though, and when it is the person saying it is crucified for it for being racist even if they're Bill Cosby.

And the opportunities are there, have BEEN there, and still aren't being taken advantage of. Why?

When you have successful black men who are conservative being called "Uncle Tom" and the like by the same people who want to keep offering programs to "step up to being equal" one can only make the connection that the problem is the people who say they want to help, so long as it is politically profitable to do so.

Well, all too often the ones making the snide comments from far away in their white-flight communities don't really get how unreceptive their missives are.

How would you like to be told directly to your face "you and your kind are pieces of shit unless you can stop shitting out babies and get off welfare." Wow that's awesome advice! Is motivational speaking your forte?

If you don't have a plugged nickel to afford a moving van to move out of the ghetto and say, Doylestown where there's some more jobs, you still gotta deal with education requirements [oh, you're from a shitty public school... ooo too bad for you], neighbors who don't care for the likes of "your kind" being so close, etc.

The "when I was growing up" stories are the best. If you didn't grow up poor and black and in a neighborhood of that caliber, you're not really gonna win them over either with an apples to oranges comparison. Basically all you're saying is: "stop being black and be white and things will get better for you." Don't worry. The same divide exists between black middle and upper class and the low end ghetto. The Cosby Show doesn't exactly resonate with people living around 3rd and Indiana.


The better motivation and urban hero I've seen is with immigrants, especially immigrant business owners. Those people bust their ass far harder than any white people I've ever known.
