Minorities losing ground
The Durango Herald, by Burt Hubbard and Ann Carnahan Espinola

Original Article

Posted By:cjjeepercreeper, 1/20/2013 11:06:30 AM

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.

May I say it? Minorities are losing ground and it´s their OWN fault. There, fixed it.

The article is not long. A few highlights:

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.”


and

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.

Colorado will end up a welfare state.

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]?

Ah´m tarred!

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.

Why wouldn´t minorities lose ground? The demonrats keep them on the plantation through mommy free taxpayer programs that take care of all their needs, and public school indoctrination.

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.

Family members tell KOB that U.S. Marshals have located Lacey DeWent, the Albuquerque 14-year-old reported missing more than two weeks ago, in Arkansas. According to DeWent´s father, Marshals located DeWent with 26-year-old Robert Butler in Fort Smith, Ark. The family is on their way to the airport to be reunited with their daughter. Her mother, Jessica DeWent, says Lacey is doing OK and was not harmed. Daniel DeWent also said authorities took Butler into custody. DeWent and Butler met online and tried to form a relationship, but he was arrested for being in contact with her.

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer support the Windows XP operating system. There will be no more security fixes, software updates or technical support, although Microsoft will still provide some anti-malware support for an unspecified amount of time. Computers that continue to run Windows XP will be at increased risk for malware infection after April 8, yet many businesses have critical XP-only applications. Others can´t afford to upgrade to new PCs. How much of a risk are they running?

The surge in the popularity of inexpensive but cutting-edge smartphones is more than just another marketplace success story. It is one with profound social implications, particularly among low-income Black and Hispanic consumers who have long been on the losing end of the digital divide. If there has been any recent development that has helped to bridge that divide in communities like my own here in Harlem, it has been the advent of low-priced smartphones. Indeed, studies have shown that Black and Hispanics access the Internet on a cellphone, tablets or other mobile handheld devices at demonstrably higher rates than whites.

US appeals court upholds
new Texas abortion rules

A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas´ tough abortion restrictions that have led to the closure of nearly 20 clinics around the state, saying the new rules don´t jeopardize women´s health. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and served no medical purpose. Despite the lower court´s ruling, the appeals court already had allowed some rules to go into effect while it considered the case. The latest decision means more regulations will begin later this year, as scheduled, and sets

Trade officials say the shortages largely began in 2013 when gun owners began stockpiling bullets...(snip)The source of the fear that drove ammunition hoarding is President Barack Obama, said Erich Pratt, director of communications for Gun Owners of America, a firearms advocacy lobbying group.

On the eve of the Netanyahu visit to Washington, President Obama gave a lengthy interview to Jeffrey Goldberg that shows a chief executive who has learned next to nothing about the world in his five years in office. First, kudos to Goldberg: he pressed Obama repeatedly, challenging vague formulations and seeking clarity. Goldberg pushed Obama hard, especially on Iran and Syria. Obama isn’t good off the cuff, especially when challenged; he is far better with a prepared speech. And what emerged is an awful portrait of the president and his conception of the world.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
