My first reaction remains, 'No.' The Colonies never established a viable economy without slavery. The forced labor created by slavery enabled the creation and maintenance of the cash crops of the agrarian economy that sustained 'The Colonies'. You will recall the economy of The Colonies, from the early 1500s to early 1600s, was hunting and trapping. Furs of various kinds was the cash crop. Slavery enabled all of the European Colonies in the Western Hemisphere. All the 'poor 'whites' you pose...

I think there was another discussion thread about this film way back on this board. I really like Hilary Swank as an actor so i will see anything that she is in. I think the boxing chick was Jamaican, but anyhoo... I agree. More black hats vs white hats, ho-humm. Seems even Clint couldn't quite make the break from Hollywood stereotypical scriptwriting in places. A great film with Hilary Swank is INSOMNIA, with Robin Williams as Mr Evil himself. Excellent acting, excellent story, set in Alaska.

Re: Now Speaking of an Endless Loop Cycle of Poverty, Heavy Dependence on Social Welfare

Yemaya ·
AH.....you mean how poor whites took advantage of the welfare system during the FDR years to advance themselves while systematically blocking non-white groups from using the same system? The same system that all legal americans paid taxes into?Is that the kind of heavy dependence on social welfare you are referring to Mr. Lofton? Curious. I mean we do want to balance the scales on this topic. If welfare is wrong today, then it was wrong during the depression.

No, because Black children are not White or Asian children. Black children are just as academically capable, smart, and competent as other children , but because they are Black, they are often times treated differently than other children, particularly in academic environments. Thus, whatever "academic handicaps" that Black students develop as result of past and present mistreatment is not "self-inflicted," but inflicted upon them by society. And this is what "racial identity education"...

___________________________________________ If there were not a bias against single parents and children that came from single parent homes, the irrevelant statement about 'single parent homes' would never have beens made in the first place. In fact, the fact that children's parent's marital status is so sought after in nearly every school form, etc., in the first place, is flaming evidence of pre-categorizing chidren in the onset in most public schools.
