THE HOOD


TODAY’S BLACK ILLEGITIMACY RATE IS OVER 7O%. IN 1940, THE BLACK ILLEGITIMACY RATE STOOD AT 14%! THIS RATE IS HIGHER THAN IT IS FOR HISPANICS AND MUCH HIGHER THAN FOR WHITES. IN ADDITION BLACK SAT SCORES IN 2019 ARE ALMOST 50 POINTS LOWER THAN FOR HISPANICS AND A WHOPPING 180 POINTS LOWER THAN FOR WHITES. PERHAPS NO SURPRISE THEN THAT THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATES FOR BLACKS IS HIGHER THAN FOR BOTH HISPANICS AND WHITES!

IT HAS BEEN ARGUED THAT SOME OF THE ABOVE IS AN OUTGROWTH OF THE WELFARE STATE THAT MADE SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR LESS COSTLY FOR THE INDIVIDUAL. HAVING KIDS WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF MARRIAGE IS LESS BURDENSOME IF THE MOTHER RECEIVES HOUSING SUBSIDIES, WELFARE PAYMENTS AND FOOD STAMPS. HOW THEN DOES PAYING SLAVE REPARATIONS TO PEOPLE WHO WERE NEVER SLAVES HELP ANY OF THIS AS WELL?

ONE MIGHT EVEN ARGUE THAT THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAS IN FACT ALREADY RECEIVED THEIR REPARATIONS. AND THAT IS ALL I’M GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!
