Growing up in the 1950's I was aware that the "Negroes" as they were called then, seemed to be in a lower income bracket than our family . Not that we had much money at all. Yet you would see them on Sundays as families, with mothers and fathers, bringing their children to church. The intact family unit had not been destroyed by LBJ's "Great Society". Now nearly 50 years after that program began the black family unit has been decimated and poverty among them is worse than ever. Their work ethic has been destroyed with children being raised by generations of young girls who believe government is the father to their children. It's working as intended.

There was no such thing as a "baby mama" in the 1950's.

If you want to know how any group of people is doing in society, just look to the state of it's families. There is a study out that found that, if you want to succeed and live long, just get married and stay married.

Lyndon Johnson was the one who started government cramming everything down peoples throats. Leadership would have worked better.

Clinton did it to women, and then Obama did it to us. Great modern day Democrats.

When people reminisce about what America used to be like, some act scornfully toward us. They say living in a Donna Reed world was great for a few, but that there were many suffering souls. The way our country is today makes some of us long for those days which seemed so innocent compared to the harsh, cruel, coarse, and sometimes murderous days we exist in today.

Yet most would argue that there were still injustices when we were growing up fifty years ago. Black people who had been freed a century before were still not treated equally in most parts...
