Johnson has his info wrong. Typical African American. Before Lndon Johnson, and Abe Foxman great society in 1972 African Americans were never on welfare or received any handout. Prior to 1972 blacks children came from over 90 percent married household. More than whites. And over 80 percent of African Children finished high school and went on to University. There were no section 8 or welfare. The great society (DEMOCRATS) especially Abe Foxman did this to them. Section 8, and food stamps, and free health care were given to them which started their spiral. Read Thomas Sowell Articles. Yes,. Sowell is black, and the most brilliant mind in America. Abe Foxman and his group control all of the government section 8 housing, and much more.

Individual success was mostly hidden in the Black communities due to the over whelming predjudice and bigotry, due to the African American give-away, due to the DemocRatics. The Blacks should have been 'allowed' under already standing LAWS, to pursue their own ends as individuals, and not 'placed in groups to be shunned and ignored. Becoming very defensive about success is the end result, usually resulting in violence. Control your own destiny or having your destiny controlled. That is the question being answered by the DemocRats to this day! look around the chaos. Chaos is a reason to be controlled. Ask our forefathers.

Integration into other communities including the Fair housing Act was the ultimate insult for Black American 'control'. Integration in general, was a bad influence towards the 'acceptance' of the Black American into White controlled society. Being 'forced' to integrate meant for a lot of Blacks to disregard their usually Christian, and descendant upbringing. This is when phrases such as '...and there goes the neighborhood...' came about. Also, 'Token Black' was another label placed on the Black American, whenever he was hired in a 'usually white dominated' job'. The pace in which the Blacks were placed was sometime, if not mostly, unbearable to say the least. Competing in a 'white world' resulted in a lot of drugs and crime.

President Obama may not be addressing the nearly 14 percent unemployment rate in the black community, but that’s not stopping BET founder Bob Johnson from speaking up. Via CNS News:

This country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent. No one would ever stay in office at 14 or 15 percent unemployment in this nation, but we’ve had that double unemployment for over 50 years,” Johnson said while speaking at the National Press Club about the gap between whites and blacks in America.

“The national average is 7.7 percent, and African-American unemployment is...
