That said, individuals must be treated as individuals, not as a member of a group.
'The nation as a whole' ??? Well, how about more non-blacks are below the poverty line than blacks? How about more non-blacks are on entitlements programs than blacks? How about more non-blacks who vote purely on party lines and/or color than blacks ??

I think that if you look at the mentality of GT as a whole, it becomes quite evident that the ulterior motive of this thread is quite racist. It is a simple fact.

Considering that African-Americans comprise somewhere between 10-13 percent of the total population -- one would HOPE that more non-blacks are on the poverty line, and more non-blacks are on entitlement programs.

'Hook -- just watched the Hannity segment, and had to thank you again for giving me the heads up that Dr. Carson would be on. Political Issues

What an absolutely amazing, articulate, charming, and profound gentleman is this Dr. Carson! I didn't think I could admire him any more than after seeing his speech, but he managed to turn that feat.

His upbringing and background should be an inspiration to us all. I love the fact that he mentioned that public feedback to his speech has been "99.5 percent" complimentary.

I really hope to see much more of him as a public figure.

Are any of you comprehending your own nonsense? If you were to apply your logic of 'percentages' and 'bell curves' and voting rationale, then caucasians should be living the good life in the US, but they (all) are not.

People of all race, color and party affiliation are used and abused for their politcal capital. The only purpose this thread serves is to rehash old and tired biases and negative commentary.

The only 'black employment' number you need to be concerned with is the number of black men employed as POTUS. 1 @ 100%

Per capita, blacks commit an overwhelming majority of the gun crime in this country, and they also use entitlement programs for the poor at a far higher rate.

Yes and one group of voters voted 97% for a candidate who happened to be of their race out of coincidence right? Nobody is using THEIR race as a political tool

You don't like facts very much, do you?

This is 100% the truth!! There was a time when being on unemployment or foodstamps was considered somewhat shameful, and any man who had any self-worth at all would remain on these things only as long as it took him to find new work to support his family. Now, though, there is no shame connected to it, and so people just ride the system for all it is worth, and get no reprecussions for it.

Speaking of sounding stupid, you have about cornered the market.

If Blacks overwhelmingly vote for a black/white candidate that is not an indication of anything, but any white who votes for a white candidate is racist.

That is basically what is being said and you are in lockstep with it like a good liberal PC pawn.

Oh I know it's a very cleaned up version of what he said. Some of the more interesting and revealing things he said with links to sources.

How many of them are Have criminal records or unexplainable gaps in resume that would keep them from working?

I've found that finding a job is a lot easier when I have one than when I don't.

I guess this is another case of the white man keeping them down though - just like the high black-on-black murder rate.

My city wasn't affected so much by the recession- we already had high unemployment. Didn't really get that much worse.

Check it out.
...and if you look into any prestigious university teaching hospital your likely to find a dozen brilliant pediatric neurosurgeons who are White.

Yeah -- but I don't think any of the guys in that photo were invited to speak at the National Prayer breakfast, and have the balls and the inspiration to say just about everything we've wanted to say, pretty much in Obama's face.

Context matters.

You're probably right but the reason the guys in the picture wouldn't trash Obama is because someone might call them racist--a fate worse than death to them.
