Re: Yes, women are still marrying for money (article)

bigddouble ·
The time still exists that a family can live on one salary. The problem is that most Americans are materialistic. When you live to accumulate "stuff", it follows that you have to chase money. Conseuqently, husband & wife have to work. Being a provider is an innate attractor to women, but there is a difference between providing and indulging excess. This section: is a complete crock. That describes & attempts to rationalize golddigging.

Re: Where should Reparations funds come from?

As others have said, the money is there. I'd be more concerned about the logistics of collecting and dispersing it, though. The fact of the matter is that most whites don't have ancestors who ever owned a slave. The majority of slaves were owned by a very, very few wealthy families, individuals, and institutions...far less than 10% of the whole Southern population. Also, what of teh whites whose families did not arrive in the US until well after slavery's end? What of those whites who...

Prison in the Cards Many black men face a rough new rite of passage By Silja J.A.
