By some of the most important measures of social progress, black and Latino residents of Colorado have lost ground compared with white residents in the decades since the civil-rights movement. Minority gains made during the 1960s and 1970s have eroded with time, an I-News Network analysis of six decades of demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau found. In other categories, the gaps between whites and minorities have steadily widened since 1960.
At the same time, many thousands of Colorado’s good-paying, blue-collar manufacturing jobs have disappeared, hurting minority families disproportionately.
“CF&I Steel (in Pueblo) once had 13,000 employees,” said former state Sen. Abel Tapia of Pueblo. “That used to be a path toward middle-class prosperity.”
The percentage of single-parent families and the number of births to single mothers has soared among black households, exacerbating the gaps, and immigration and teenage births in the Latino population have also led to widening disparities, experts said.
When will they understand that the policies of Obama and the Democrats are wrong. They must also do something about the number of births to single mothers. The flood of Latino illegal immigrants has provided far too much unskilled labor for the economy to support and too many births to teenaged mothers.
Blacks have been suckered by the Plantation Party. Rather than risk life as a free man or woman, they settled for a government check. They have become captives of their new master, mother government, and have been kept in bondage, isolated in their crime ridden ghettos, by a steady succession of poverty pimps: LBJ, Jesse Jackson, Lou Farakhan, Al Sharpton, Suge Knight, Jay Z, Malik Zulu Shabazz. Your brothers and sisters have held you back. They´ve ratted you out the moment any of you stepped off of that plantation and dared to live your own life rather than to be defined, if not owned, by your keepers in Washington DC and their minions working your neighborhood block.
LBJ´s Great Society wasn´t such a great idea. We now are into the 4th generation of single welfare mothers and millions of children who grew up with no father in the home. Most of these people wouldn´t know how to work if you gave them a job.
1. They´re not my kids. I didn´t say you could plunder my pocket to pay for raising them.
2. I´d actually like to see White Suppression of minorities come to an end. All those interminable meetings! How to oppress blacks, how to oppress Mexicans, how to do it all under the radar so nothing can be proved. Hey, I did my share, but I have things I want to do for myself now, y´know? All this oppressing and all those meetings -- how will I ever have time to catalog my CDs and DVD? Finish collecting and printing articles on stellar fusion processes and types of supernovas? Building a scale model of the house Frank Lloyd Wright drew up for Ayn Rand [that never got built, which is why I´m doing the model]?
I may shock ´some´ with my straightforward language, but truth is truth, and the truth is this-- we have become a bastardized nation !! this is by design make no mistake about it, it was set-up to destroy the family and to befit the Rat party! How on earth can God Bless America with so many bast**d`s breeding bast**d`s ...and this same low-life scum voted in Bammie, our national disgrace, who is also, one and the same.
For some reason, DH always checks the births column in the paper to see how many new parents are married, how many list a couple but not married and how many just list a female. This week there was 11 births, two were married, one was by herself, so 8 were couples but not married. IOW, 9 this week that Uncle Sugar (that´s you and me) will be taking care of for the rest of their lives.
They´ve been losing ground since they sold themselves into slavery on the Democrat plantation. If leftists hadn´t taken over the schools, they might have learned that the racists were always the Democrats.

Wait until all those white oppressors in the BB generation retire and their income tax declines and SS & Medicare taxes end. I´m sure all those illegals, single parent black offspring, and the rest of the gimme crowd will pick up the slack. If not, the dims will have to come up with another cash for clunkers scheme, only this time handouts will be given for abortions and inner city murders.
FARMINGTON — Officials from the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange have reached out to communities throughout the state to explain the exchange and new insurance plans, periodically holding seminars in San Juan County. But many of those seminars have been sparsely attended. A free health insurance exchange seminar and dinner scheduled last week in Bloomfield was cancelled due to a lack of response. "We advertised for three weeks before, put it on our reader board and hand-delivered invitations to various doctor´s offices and small businesses," said Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce President Janet Mackey. "We only had seven people RSVP, and since we
KOB Eyewitness News 4 has learned more about the driver who led New Mexico State Police on a wild chase, all while she had her five children in the vehicle. Oriana Farrell and her five kids were visiting from Tennessee on what police say she called an “educational trip of New Mexico.” They’ll be here for the forseeable future now, as Farrell fights the charges against her. Dashcam video shows 39-year-old Oriana Farrell and several of her five children in a screaming match with a state police officer, minutes after he pulled her over for a speeding ticket. The video
KTM factory motorcycle racer Kurt Caselli was killed last night as he was racing this year´s running of the Baja 1000. It´s not immediately clear what happened, but early reports are that he was killed when he hit some sort of man-made booby trap set by locals along the course. Caselli, 30, was near the end of the race when he hit the obstacle around 5 PM PST yesterday. He was transported to the hospital with major head injuries, according to Dirt Bike Magazine, but unfortunately succumbed to them during the night. Details are still emerging, but booby traps are
Here we go again. On Tuesday, Fox News reporter Jana Winter will be back in court, this time in Albany, continuing her fight to avoid jail and protect her confidential sources. On that day, the New York State Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, will hear her plea to reverse a lower state court ruling which orders her to return to Aurora, Colorado to testify in the trial of James Holmes, the man charged with 166 felony charges, including 24 counts of first degree murder, in the movie theater massacre at a midnight showing of “Batman, The Dark Knight
Republican Gov. Susana Martinez on Friday chose a member of her own party to succeed Stephen Easley, the late Democratic state representative. Martinez selected Vickie Perea of Belen for the House District 50 seat. Perea will serve out Easley´s term, which ends on Dec. 31, 2014. Easley, of El Dorado, died in August at age 60. Perea, 67, ran unsuccessfully for the state Senate in 2012. Democrat Clemente Sanchez defeated her in the general election.In appointing Perea, Martinez has narrowed the gap between Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives. Democrats will have a 37-33 advantage, compared to 38-32
If you ask Larry Beck, "arch-o-holism" is the only addiction to have.Beck, president of the Natural Arch and Bridge Society, member of Seniors Outdoors and admitted "arch-o-holic," has been actively hunting natural arches throughout the Southwest for more than 20 years. Beck, at age 62, shows no signs of slowing down. "People ask, ´Where do you live?´ and I tell them, ´I don´t know, I guess wherever I´m parked,´" Beck said. "Oftentimes I´ll drive down an old oil and gas road I´ve been down many times before and, suddenly, the sunlight will pop and sparkle through a tiny opening in
Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died today. The cause of his death has not yet been released, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May. With the Velvet Underground in the late Sixties, Reed fused street-level urgency with elements of European avant-garde music, marrying beauty and noise, while bringing a whole new lyrical honesty to rock & roll poetry. As a restlessly inventive solo artist, from the Seventies into the 2010s, he was chameleonic, thorny and unpredictable, challenging his fans at every turn. Glam, punk and alternative rock
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
