I'm old enough to remember the dawn of LBJ's great society and the effects it had on the black community. Suddenly and without warning, blacks moved from the rural areas to the perceived safety of the great urban areas. The male figure heads no longer had to work in the fields and could sit back and relax in their rocking chairing on the front porch. The children, seeing this adopted a lackadaisical approach to life, that in the end lead to the destruction of the black family we now see in America. Yes I do place the destruction of the black family squarely on the shoulders of white progressives.
Ron, Oh Yea, this whole thing belongs to LBJ and the commiercrats. LBJ said at the time he stole the social security lockbox and put it in the general fund - to create the new modern day slavery of blacks called the Great Society "This will have those niggers voting democrat for the next 50 years". He was underestimating.

Forgot to mention---don't know Satriani, but do recall this from the 1950's By today's standards could be considered racist
Ron, Yea, I remember a bunch of stuff like that from those days. I remember hearing Satriani's name and a couple of his tunes a couple decades ago or more but have only been really listening the last few months actually. Very unique player. I was raised on Chet Atkins, Jimmy Page, George Benson, and a host of others who had been playing a while in those days.
Kid, Larry Elder's been on LA talk radio for MANY years....he's a great guy, too. He often talks about his father in such glowing terms. I loved hearing this video, thanks. Except it makes me sad.He's so right...Kids DO join gangs for structure and protection....Dad's should be providing that. I remember when welfare got really swinging and we'd lament how poor families were encouraged NOT to have wedded parents because they'd get more money....Dad came home late at night, made a new baby, then disappeared again and again.....why should he care? Maury Pauvich does a TV show every single day (I think it's still on?) where mostly black young mothers appear and they do DNA tests to see which guy's the father...the boys come out and react to "YOu ARE the father!" Or "You are NOT the father!" IT IS DISGUSTING!!!!I WISH we could do something about this but nobody seems to care...they ARE wedded to the government and like it that way. TOTALLY responsible for this is THE DEMOCRATS....
Z, A better TV show to get a handle on this is 'The First 48" - young black kids killing people for nothing.No education. No family. In many cases the female breeder puts them on the street for food and water. (I know people in these environments) - what else are these kids going to do? Become computer specialists? Hell they're not even equipped to be come burger flippers. So they become gang bangers, and end up shocked when the end up in prison getting raped by bubba. I feel sorry for them. They weren't given a freakin ounce of lift to help them make a life for themself. Doesn't make me want to hug one though any more than I'd want to hug a grizzly bear.
What is incredibly sad is that when you ask black kids on the playground what they want to be when they grow up, every last one of them says they want to play basketball in the NBA. When told that there are only about 200 slots to be filled in the NBA, and that their chances of making a team are virtually zero, they don't care. Math is not exactly their thing, you know. And once they figure out that the NBA is not going to work out for them, they join a gang.
Fredd, Yes, I'm sure that's true. When we're kids we all dream about being Superman right, but at some point reality has to set in.
