'Gun Culture' -- What About the 'Fatherless Culture'?

The notion that minorities of all types (except the Asian, since they are high performers) are excluded from criticism has fed into this destructive cycle that has reduced the black family to a statistical rarity. The numbers don't lie: Blacks don't pursue education, are the majority of our prison population, have almost thee quarters of their children illegitimately, and die at a much earlier age because of violence/drug use than any other segment of the population. A government check is no substitute for a father in the home. Unless/until that message is embraced by the black population at large, nothing will change.

Instead of spending money and ideas at that very moment, assisting those who had been enslaved, they started eugenics societies, Margaret Sangor came along as racist as racist can be and began her birth control review. You may want to go to this website and try to view this film, and find out what has happened to so many because of the color of their skin: May Go

But we can't admit that. Otherwise we'd have to admit that all those eeevvviiilll conservatives were right about self-control, commitment and worst of all....


We couldn't have that, could we? That would be "telling poor women not to have sex". That would offend women voters (or at least those who are looking for a government sugar daddy).

The government should launch a campaign encouraging poor people to maturbate rather than fornicate.

Maybe some government sponsored films, such as 'JULIA', would increase masturbation, decrease fornication and lower purchase of violent games.

Now THAT's an idea I can support.

The face of gun violence is not Sandy Hook. It is Chicago.

In 2012, President Barack Obama's adopted hometown had 506 murders, including more than 60 children. Philadelphia, a city that local television newscasters frequently call 'Killadelphia," saw 331 killed last year. In Detroit, 386 people were murdered.

Since 1966, there have been 90 school shootings in the U.S., with 231 fatalities. Yes, Sandy Hook shocked us. But the odds of a child being killed at a school shooting are longer than the odds of being struck by lightning.

Of the 11,000 to 12,000 gun murders each...
