I grew up on a ****hole council estate with a single parent surrounded by drugs, guns and crime! I knew I didnít want that for my life so got out and started from the bottom sleeping on peoples couches but working and saving to get myself on a path I was choosing!

As for people not having enough money to go to the shops, heating etc well if migrants can get from Iraq / afghan, cross the channel and make a new life in the UK , well Iím sorry but I donít buy into that at all and proved it myself!

Many will fail trying to better themselves but if they want it bad enough then many can achieve no matter there circumstances!

Hi noj,

Whether you agree or not, facts and figures are solid data that give firm reference points in a discussion like this, although I concede they can be somewhat manipulated to suit a narrative.
I disagree that I'm unable to understand the problems of an ethnic group because I haven't experienced them.
A lot of my info comes from intelligent black commentators like Candace Owens, Larry Elder and Senator Tim Scott who all grew up in poverty in the black community and know the score. Black academics like professor
Thomas Sowell and professor Walter Williams, both renowned economists, have written many books on the subject.
I have tried to list the problems and solutions of the US black inner city communities as those experts have spoken and written about and believe they are best qualified to do so.

BB.

So what do you think the problems are Jon or the underlying cause?

Youíre really not going to understand or begin to solve problems faced by any ethnic group without experiencing it first hand. Itís easy to regurgitate figures and quotes from the internet but without first hand knowledge the Ďexpertsí, politicians and commentators are pissing in the wind.
I do believe thereís more of a misunderstanding of cultures than discrimination against somebodyís melanin count. Like the post from this morning about people washing their arse instead of wiping contributing to the downfall of the country... wtf
I live in a ****hole and there are as many, if not more, white single mothers and mine was one of them. Doesnít sell papers reporting on them though.
And anybody wondering why people living on the bread line donít **** off somewhere else must not understand what life without money means. People canít afford to get to the shops, let alone buy anything. How are they supposed to relocate when they canít even eat or turn the heating on?
Youíre not escaping that cycle without help and help isnít there for a lot of people

I believe BLM have duped the black community into aiming at the wrong target. Police brutality is a minor issue. They should be protesting the Democrat politicians who have overseen their communities for decades and done little to improve them. The welfare system acts against the 2 parent family rather than encourages it.
That's why mother only families are now about 75%. They insist on blacks attending local failed schools and try and curb the introduction of Charter schools, which give black kids a better education.
Democrats traditionally get 90% of the black vote. It doesn't serve them to try and lift the black community out of the poverty welfare trap.


Agree, or should I say, interesting

Hi Ocelot,

I don't blame the kid.
If you read all my previous posts, you will see you are, in part, repeating much of what I wrote.
Your analogy about plucking a young kid out of the Bronx has, in reality, been proven by the 1000s of blacks serving the community in high profile, prominent jobs, i.e. senators, state governers, congressmen and women, city mayors, police chiefs, district attorneys, academics, high ranking military etc.
Many intelligent black commentators believe racism is largely a red herring, used by race baiters like Al Sharpton to prolong the victim narrative. They are victims in a way, but the black commentators believe it is as a result of social deprivation, led by father absence, welfare dependency, bad schools, gang culture and crime.
The US Asian community is about 6% and they lead the median income table for all races, by a considerable margin.
Racism has little effect on their success.
I believe BLM have duped the black community into aiming at the wrong target. Police brutality is a minor issue. They should be protesting the Democrat politicians who have overseen their communities for decades and done little to improve them. The welfare system acts against the 2 parent family rather than encourages it.
That's why mother only families are now about 75%. They insist on blacks attending local failed schools and try and curb the introduction of Charter schools, which give black kids a better education.
Democrats traditionally get 90% of the black vote. It doesn't serve them to try and lift the black community out of the poverty welfare trap.
Do your own research to find out what's really going on.

BB.

Edit. As Joe Biden said to a black interviewer, " If you're having trouble deciding whether to vote for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
How insulting is that to the 1.5 million blacks who voted for Trump.

I think there is a problem with wages, where work doesnít pay enough so the incentive to work is reduced.

Totally agree

Business competition and all. I will make one comment, China, and leave it at that, there are not many companies that can compete in the market place and pay decent wages, since they seriously exploit their people and pay them peanuts which in turn has a knock on effect to the rest of the world

I think there is a problem with wages, where work doesnít pay enough so the incentive to work is reduced. Thatís not to say that benefits should be reduced but Iíd like to see a review of the in-work benefits which are in many cases basically subsidies of the private sector. Thereís more than one way of Ďsponging off the stateí.

There are 8 million living in poverty sadly

I don't doubt for one minute that we have real poverty in this country but I do believe we have people that plead poverty but a look into their lifestyles tells a different story.
For those with nothing to do and no structure in their life they may be the type of person who occupies their time by watching Netflix/Sky smoking drinking even possibly betting. They might be the person who's fallen into a rut and can't be bothered to cook anymore and eats unhealthily. Now I'm not for one minute saying this is the case for all people out of work but I know these type of people exist. For them they have never known a life without what I've mentioned and to them they see them as basic everyday needs rather than luxuries. Those type of people mask the figures and take away resources needed for real genuine people in poverty.

Those are valid questions but the answers could be changed.

The area where people live is not beneficial to there future. Leave then.

Lack of jobs. Again, leave.

If there is jobs available in the area, educate yourself to apply for them rather than blaming the system or colour of your skin.

What should we do.......go fishing ......
