The President - the most powerful position in America - is not white. He has given himself more power than any of his predecessors - writing more executive orders to bypass congress and the constitution than any other president in history. At this juncture, whites are less than 50% of the population. So, maybe it's time to stop blaming one race in society and instead use common sense to evaluate the things that are being used/tried and determine if people are better off or not. No matter what color, religion, or political party creates it. Then figure out how to fix it. Make it better. We - black, white, Republican, Democrat - are all loosing our common sense as we make groups enemies to fight against vs. directions to fight for.

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
