Illinois Tea Party Candidate: 'Black Men Prefer Drug Dealing To Education'

To be honest, there is a bit of truth in this video. Women largely in America do have far more incentive to get out, work and become educated than men and this is taken to a broader extreme among minority communities where the conditions and opportunities are worse. That’s a truism about gender in America that shouldn’t be dismissed.

The point could have been said alot better and skillfully, however. My generation of men is one that lacks a profound degree of motivation and the combination of this and societal changes in racial demographics are going to have to be approached carefully if things are to be improved.
