So what you are saying then that IF BENNET or any other enemy conservative DID advocate mass abortion for Black babies - paying Black women to have them - YOU WOULDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT because it is legal? What ARE YOU SAYING MBM? It seems that you just presented "Manufactured Outrage" about Bennett's comments. If in fact hundreds of thousands of Black women CHOOSE to have an abortion and this IN FACT does reduce the level of crime THE FACT THAT THEY "CHOSE" to abort the child is the...

While I've never seen one of her shows, you brought up an interesting point about stage performances.

And, those that come close to approaching their studio efforts, spend more time on their scripted to the minute routine and it comes across as the umpteenth time they've performed it.

I think other races [of women] do experiences it, but they seem to grow out of it[i.e. white women pursuing biker type guys, asian and hispanic women seeking out gangmembers, etc]. For Black women, I think, their problem stems from their decisions to have children with bad boy/thug.

Re: Black Middle Class vs. American Middle Class

To be clear - the point that I am trying to illustrate is that Con Feed's rants about the problems of black culture are really a result of classism and poverty in America that transcend race. Since we know that the white middle class has declined over recent years, if the black middle class has increased or decreased at a smaller rate than the white middle class - then whatever issues CF has with black people can be attributed to the effects that ALL middle/working/poor Americans suffer from...

Sorry, I didn't communicate the point well enough.

To quantify it, if slave reparations are awarded in the amount of, say, $50 trillion - representing the unpaid wages from the slavery era compounded with interest, couldn't poor/working class whites also make a claim for that amount since they would have been the ones to earn those wages had not slaves been imported to do "their" jobs?

IF there are less pupils at these original public schools DO YOU FIGURE THAT THEIR FUNDING WILL BE CUT and thus YOU ARE IN STRONG OPPOSITION TO MEEK'S drive......RIGHT? (That is if you follow logic).

Third, even if per student funding decreased, lowering the teacher/student ratio in some instances might overcome the reduced funding.
