Black America is in a state of crisis, and not only are we being ignored by those for whom we vote, but we are also being ignored by the press and the "civil rights movement".
For the last seventy years, liberals have asked blacks to elect and empower them so that they could defend us from racist conservatives who were trying to keep us down. They said that without them, we would be relegated to an inferior education, lower-paying jobs, and the sorrow of institutional racism. (And it has happened, but with a different cause.) But after all this time in power, how has liberalism benefited us?
An analysis of the leading indicators for a good quality of life for the black population (employment, education, crime, and family) shows that in many ways, the current generation of black youth is in worse shape than the last. It seems incredible that in the 21st century, we could be backsliding, but the facts don't lie.

Unfortunately its not always considered acceptable to bring this stuff up. I had a white government teacher who went over the stats and told us the drop out rate of minorities, and he was put on probation and accused of being racist. If we can not speak about the issues on hand, then how we can do anything to stop them?
