    I’m an Independent….and you seem like a pissed off liberal. Settle down cupcake….first off Lincoln’s first choice was to ship all the blacks back to Africa but it was deemed to expensive….look it up. In regards to my “obsession with blacks” as you put it, I simply see a BIG problem within the black community and it affects everyone so why shouldn’t we talk about it? Is bring this up making you squirm in your seat because it brings to light the failure of the democratic party (whom you claim’s to champion black causes) to have black parents take the free education we offer more seriously and to “raise the bar academically” instead of consistently lowering our expectations and making excuses for all the failings?….have you even noticed that there have been more black on black murders this year just in Chicago then all the deaths to our soldiers in Afghanistan? You don’t see that as a problem worth discussing and solving? What’s wrong with you? So quick to spew your anti-GOP hate on anyone who dares bring up a “touchy” subject….. grow up

    First off the black leaders (those you seem to speak up whenever there is a perceived injustice) need to acknowledge there is a problem within the black communities all around this country without being labeled as “acting like an Uncle Tom”. One would ask these black leaders to speak to the black communities and call them out about rising the bar at HOME academically so as to help stop this cycle of academic failure. I do a lot of volunteering at our local high school (president of SAC for three years) and we could NEVER get black parents in to discuss their children’s school performance….if the parents do not value the education how will you ever get kids to? Ask black’s to please take pride in where they live….it does not take a rich man to pick up a paint brush or a broom. Address the complete and utter failings of the black males to be fathers to the children they produce……children NEED a father to guide and raise them. How about we start with those issues and start the conversation…….respect is that the black communities continually say they want ….change these things that are killing the black family unit and perpetuating the cycle of failure within the class room, follow the laws and respect will follow…..respect is never given until earned.
