Want to find the highest levels of crime, poverty, murder, hopelessness, and ethnically and racially segregated neighborhoods in the country? Look for the places that have been under strictly Democrat leadership for several decades. It will lead you right to them. Every. Single. Time.
I feel terrible for the people in these types of neighborhoods. The vast majority are hard-working honest people that just want to make ends meet and be able to go to school or work without finding themselves in a gang crossfire or being offered drugs. But there is a contingent of dirtbags so unethical, immoral and violent that they run these neighborhoods unchallenged by anyone except each other, and for some its the only way they can survive. I think the good honest Americans living in these neighborhoods need to rise up and start smoking these punks. No one else is going to do it.
Meanwhile, the Democrats put their feet up on the table, smoke a cigar and watch it happen. They know they have their vote for reasons no one can figure out. They don't do a damn thing to help but they sure pay it good lip service come election time.
I was an education specialist for the county for years. i was considered an expert in education. i as in every single school in allegheny county. I taught in the inner city and my wife teaches in the inner city now. So i feel like i can comment on this.
Those same democrats are 100% against school choice. They literally trap inner city kids in their failing shit schools and will not let them out. It's a fucking joke.
My wife graduates kids who can't read, who can't do basic math, who don't have life skills. It's not those kids' fault. It's the fucked up education system they have. They're busy when they're home figure out where they're going to eat and then they come to school and they walk into a shit school with zero standards and they're not pushed at all.
What's even more insane is that these kids apply and get accepted into college. Fail out after a year and 20 grand worth of debt, and then they're stuck with it.
What's also fucked up is those schools in the inner city are actually disuaded from teaching trade skills because it was perceived as racist. Yup. They said "these are predominantly black schools, and we would be holding these kids back". so they started "the pittsburgh promise" (this is all legit and real btw) where if you hold like a 2.5 gpa you can have college paid for.
20% of eligible students take advantage of free college tuition... how fucked is that?
Do you know how many white kids my wife has in all of her high school classes? 1. oh and an asian boy. The rest are african american. Those same fucktards that are ruining detroit, chicago, and the like are literally destroying thousands of african american students' lives because they're worried about "how it will look".
Do you know what i pay my painters? i pay them 26.50/hour PLUS fringes and benefits! Do you know what one of my wife's former students who dropped out of college after their first year with 20k worth of debt probably makes? maybe 10 bucks if they're actually working. because they sure as shit know how to apply for welfare. the student assistance program teaches them that. (also a real thing). But god forbid these kids learn how to be a carpenter, electrician, a painter, a mechanic. nope. can't have that. "they all have to go to college" and they all think a real good job is one where you go to an office every day.
and that shit is 100% because of race. Not because black kids are dumb or can't do it. Fuck that. My son is kicking ass and taking names and i'm proud as shit of him. he did it on his own and despite all these same circumstances.
It's because people filled their heads with bullshit. They didn't prepare them for what they said they should be doing. The best piece of advice i ever gave my son is to stop going to college. he had his 2 year certificate. he was just screwing around taking classes and didn't have a plan.
He got to work, liked how it felt to make real $ (he does flabotomy (sp? drawing blood)) and is now working on a career in travel paying his way through that with the job he got with his associates.
Do you know what his "advisors" and "mentors" told him to do? To "stay in school as long as he could".
