    Democrats are the party of entitlement. They convince people that they deserve more than they got. In order to break that dependency cycle you need to be educated.

    There are many very prosperous black people that have broken that cycle. However, there are others that are just plain lazy. Much easier to circle a bubble at the polls than it is to go to school, get a degree and increase your own self worth.

    Stereotyping is nothing more then Racism. A very small percentage of black people live in poverty but I guess in your poverty stricken neighborhood you might see what you consider to be a large population of black people. Guess I cant blame you for you ignorance, when you live in poverty as you do it's hard to see past your 10 square block radius when you cant afford to take the bus further then that. Let me educate you, America is a large country, 3,400 to drive from one end to the other and within these borders black people prosper well. Good luck.

    FYI: Black people aren't the only ones in poverty in this country, hear.

    And social programs aren't just helping Black folks.

    More like, do they 'know'. Apparently not, since they've been voting Democrat for decades now, and are still in the poorhouse.
