Good advice for black folks

HERE’S ONE OF my favorite black gals, Candace Owens.

She speaks so clearly that even professors at universities like Vassar, Reed and Brown can easily understand.

If you’re sitting at a green-felt table with your homies and a deck of cards, and the dealer tosses you the famous “Black Card,” fling it back at him, or on the floor, or into that trash can in the corner.

Everyone will be better off.

  1. Very good. If only there were more with her mindset and ability to articulate their thoughts.

  2. Sometime in the early 1960s things changed. There was a casualty in the War on Poverty. It was the black father. Social welfare programs were tailored to fit the single mother. The father was excluded from the picture. Women did better financially without a man to support the family and give the kids guidance.

    Now we have two generations who were raised without a man in their lives. The prisons are full of black men who were never taught how to be men. Most of them are there because they did bad things to other people, mostly other black people.

    Now we have two generations who are addicted to the opium of social welfare. They are exploited by the Judas goats of black society. Everything is someone else’s fault.

    I don’t know the answer to this problem, but society better find it quick.

  3. It seems to me that one of our burgeoning root problems is the idea that it’s unkind to tell people to suck it up and be responsible for themselves, their lives, and their decisions. Sure, we all make mistakes, but we also need to own those mistakes, learn from them, and then move ahead. Self reliance is the best reliance.

    Where the idea that this should be controversial seems ridiculous.

  4. Not sure how it will ever change since the politicians have made it too easy to stay home, pop out kids from whoever brings the six-pack and keep going. At election time youz gotta vote for the man who is going to continue the stuff.

    I think LBJ knew exactly what he was doing and what it would accomplish. Then a couple of groups decided that the father was not required in a home and here we are.

    I am sure Candice Owens is also being called every name in the book for being against the various groups.

    1. Tancho: I don’t think LBJ knew what would happen as a result of The Great Society. It sounded good at the time, I recall. But, the best-laid plans, etc.

      Yes, Candace Owens catches lots of flak from the left for voicing her wisdom and good sense.
