The black families who do that represent conservative values, and have likely worked hard to be able to move out of those neighborhoods, which are predominantly less well-off economically. This is behavior that we should encourage. While the neighborhood I grew up in was mostly white (as I am) I moved away as soon as I could afford to. And I welcome black families into my neighborhood because for the most part they have earned it.

In my own neighborhood that was about half true for the parents and untrue for the kids. Even if the parents were hard working and upstanding the kids would run roughshod through the neighborhood and get into trouble. Their peers have a much greater impact on their thinking than their parents.
Brandon, a 9-year-old black kid, attended a campaign rally hosted by Michelle Obama. A cameraman interviewed Brandon, who was there with his dad. "Why does (Obama) need to win?" he was asked. "Because if Mitt Romney wins," he replied, "we'll be going back to the crop fields. We'll be picking crops." Off-screen, his father could be heard laughing.

From whom does a 9-year-old hear that Obama's opponent is a racist who, to quote the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, wants "to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws"?

Brandon's father might alert his son to a recent column...
