    The insanity needs to stop and think about how to move forward an entire underclass trapped in poverty with no jobs and no futures. That will only be a start because many of the tough bad guys....will stay what they are.

    This is also not to denegrate those in political places who are doing a fabulous job. They need our support as best we can.

    My phone is not allowing me to give thanks today. However, thank you to all who are commenting on this topic.

    History teaches us that the government has never been a protector or friend of the black race. It makes me want to cry when I think about the struggles our people go through each and every genration. Our ancestors were brought to this country in shackles and chains, treated worse than the dirtiest animal, all done legally. They were brutally forced into manual labor sold and traded like cattle. They were legally denied an education. And worst of all they were taught to depend on the monsters who put them into captivity and the government for their survival. They were taught to be dependent and then despised for it at the same time.

    They came out of slavery with nothing. No secret bank accounts, buried treasures or hidden works of art that could be recovered later. Most of what was given to them by the government such as land was legally taken back or stolen from them. They needed so much and received the worst of everything, food, housing, jobs, education.

    So here we are today 2014. We are a people that "little was given but much is expected". Our people fought and died for equality, and many laws have been passed. Laws that seem to be more beneficial to everyone but us, white women, the lbg community and now illegal emigrants (no offence to anyone just making a point). We have been given equal rights but still not treated equal by the government that gave it to us. Inferior and unjust treatment in so many ways that even the different nationalities that come here look down on us.

    Now we turn on each other. We're practicing genocide on our own race. Some of us can't, won't, don't know how to help each other. What do we do?
