"Be a credit to your race." Walter Williams is a credit to America and God. So is Thomas Sowell, so is Allen West. Then you have Obama, Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz, Frank, Reid, the Kennedys and drunken racist Biden. It is not race, it is what's in your heart-God and what's in your head. The 1st group above has God and brains and guts. the 2nd group headed by Obama has Satan in their hearts and socialist crapola in their heads.

Here's a recent statement frequently suggested by leftist academics, think tank researchers and policymakers: "People were not just struggling because of their personal deficiencies. There were structural factors at play. People weren't poor because they made bad decisions. They were poor because our society creates poverty." Who made that statement and where it was made is not important at all, but its corrosive effects on the minds of black people, particularly black youths, are devastating.

There's nothing intellectually challenging or unusual about poverty. For most of mankind's existence, his most optimistic scenario was to be able to eke out enough to subsist...
