2) We have had a number of very successful decades (say two generations) of social programs designed to level the playing field based on race

Jeff,

the statement is very vague. If you mean welfare, then you are talking generally about deadbeat young white women who make very bad choices in white boys. Boys who run off when the kids are coming along.

It has nothing to do with race.


If you are talking of much smaller initiates then you are wrongly looking at the small pieces of the puzzle and lumping them in with welfare.

There is a push now in the cities of Connecticut to have gangs answer for any shootings. If a gang member kills then the whole gang and all their activities come under investigation....the book is thrown at them. The gangs are getting a huge heads up that this will be the policy. This gives the gangs a way out of the constant titfortat killing that goes on within the inner cities. This approach is sweeping the nation. Many law enforcement operatives are in on it whether it be Federal or state or local resources.

Just some food for thought about race....oh my reason for stating this stuff....in the ghetto 5% of the young males are in the gangs.....the vast majority of the ghetto's inhabitants hate the voilence like anyone else would.

Jeff, my crack about you being liberal was just that.....some kidding around.....you seem to think being liberal is a problem.....still.

IT is not.
