"[T]he courts are so willing to assume that anything that is predominantly black must be inferior.... The mere fact that a school is black does not mean that it is the product of an unconstitutional violation."
Justice Clarence Thomas
(1948- ) U.S. Supreme Court Justice
Missouri v. Kalima Jenkins, 115 S. Ct. 2038 (1995) (concurring).

    That's racist! ;-) The metropolitan slums in Democrat-controlled cities do perpetuate black poverty 'culture.' Unfortunately it disproportionally represents the total black population. It may come as a surprise to these cities that there are other communities in which the black poverty culture does not reign -- in fact the opposite is true. But those stories hurt the narrative, so even among their own race, responsible and productive black families are demeaned.

    Victimhood has its costs and benefits. But it is an awful racket of which the statists are only too happy to take advantage. In fact, putting more people out of work and making them powerless is exactly what statists want! Heaven on Earth puts them out of business, Hell on Earth enriches them. Lord help us. ;-)
