That's all her stats say, over and over. Whites are better.

The OP refers to improvements we have made as compared to where WE were. Eff whites, not everything needs to be compared to them. So the actual comparison would be if we did not improve on the other stats posted over time as well. Comparing us to whites who up until 50 years ago had the legal authority to subjugate us to lower class status is inappropriate. We can't gain all that ground in a day.



precisely.

I think kids are starting to connect the fact that having kids at a younger age considerably increases your chances of being poor for the rest of your life!

wow, this is good news.  i'm actually surprised that any teen, of any race, is engaging in sex less frequently and with less partners because everyone seems so oversexed.  maybe they're spending more time on the internet and school and less time out doing bad stuff...aren't more blacks going to college as well?  we as a people must feel more confident in our futures than previously, and we should because we're making moves.

Can't put my finger on it.
At first you didn't even care to acknowledge the study but wanted to emphasize how worse off we are .

Maybe you just get off on being a contrarian though


Lamp...reminds of me a roommate i used to have, who would for example, tell me, "Youre lucky it didnt rain" when i came in from the salon. She wouldnt be caught dead saying anything positive/complimentary, instead she would find the most negative, annoying, nitpicking thing to say, and totally ignore everything else.

Sorry if you don't feel it's relevant or helpful information.


I dont think its relevant in this particular threadOuch. separate thread though

It's cool though...I stay trying to add to discussions, be respectful, don't call people names, and all I get is negative.

Whatever.


You do a bit much most times May. Sometimes its unnecessary. Yes, we have a long way to go in dealing with our issues, but when something positive is highlighted, I dont think its constructive to highlight something negative
, just out of the blue. Its odd
