A great legacy, indeed!
Do you actually think before you post?
You are obviously incapable of actually thinking, before you post!
"Hope and Change" :^/
Everyone of these cities are run by Democrats and have been for decades.
You think that might have something to do with it?
They really don't exist if you're a liberal...they are a fabrication from the Russians, so we should just turn our backs and ignore them...save our outrage for the rare instances, when a white cop shoots one of the thugs.
Philly does well in this category also. Liberal scumbag Mayor who declared that rats nest a Sanctuary City and was caught on video dancing in his office a few weeks back when it was passed. Saw cut the entire west coast and the east coast from NJ on up north and let them sink into the salt water. What a wonderful country this would be.
Libs passed legislation and wrote rules back then which took African American men out of the picture when it came to being involved in raising their children.
Children need two parents and boys in particular need a strong father to set them straight and send them down the right path.
But those Great Society policies incentivized young black women to have children out of wedlock because they could get free housing, federal aid, etc.
In the eighties, I dated a brilliant lady for two years. She had graduated UC Berkeley in just three years, with honors, while at the same time battling Hodgkins disease, no less.
She became a teacher and then the faculty rep at Harry Ells High School in Richmond, CA, a very poor and heavily black community.
I remember her telling me how so many black teenage girls at that HS would intentionally get pregnant so they could get a place of their own and get child support at the taxpayer's expense
The statistics on young incarcerated men who did not have an involved father while they were growing up is astonishing. In fact, it's the #1 determinant in why so many young black men go by the wayside and end up in prison.
WELL DONE, Liberals!
Yet you don't give a $h!t about your failed policies and the millions of black lives you've ruined, do you?
The horrible results of the policies you advocated are irrelevant to you. The proof of that is that you continue to advocate those same policies today, despite FIFTY YEARS of overwhelming evidence as to the indescribable harm and damage you did to our African American citizens.
No, you don't!
All you care about is that "you cared."
