According to Charles Blow, negro dysfunction in the USA is somebody else's fault.
Wow, Thank You Mister Blow. For a minute there, we were thinking that Black Dysfunction in the USA (and in Europe, and in Africa, and in China, and on Mars...) might have something to do with pre-Darwinian, divine causes. We sure are glad you cleared it up for us!
Blow makes his tired, preposterous claims in a piece entitled "Marriage and Minorities", that was published last week in the erudite page of Amerika's Newspaper of Record's Op-Ed Section.
In the article, Mister Blow lays out his list of the true culprits behind black dysfunction and criminality. Here we go :
1) Mass Incarceration ;
2) The War On Drugs ;
3) the "Aid Elimination Provision" of the Higher Education Act, a provision "that took effect in 2000. It denied financial aid to students with drug convictions" ;
4) Student Loan Debt ;
5) (This one is quite funny. To quote directly from Blow): "Furthermore, for the poorest Americans, there are marriage penalties built into many of our welfare programs. As the Heritage Foundation has pointed out: 'Marriage penalties occur in many means-tested programs, such as food stamps, public housing, Medicaid, day care and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. The welfare system should be overhauled to reduce such counterproductive incentives.'" ;
6) And in conclusion, this absolute gem of blame-YT Blame-Shifting:
Truly, the New York Times gets more outrageous and provocative by the day. Could they sense the end is near?
Day after day and every day, it's the same crap right there on the front page of Amerika's newspaper of record: bash the Catho church, publish photos of whites in general and white males specifically only if they are handicapped or under indictment for some heinous crime, promote gay marriage, defend the Trayvons of the nation, vilify successful corporations, blame-shift for and explain away Obama's fraudulence, report on inner-city Head Start programs, etc etc ad nauseum.
In the 1/half decade that I have been following the NYT very closely on a daily basis, I have never seen the crazy lefty rhetoric that oozes from this newspaper's pores as it has in the past few months.
Clearly, something is up.
The end, perhaps?
Were it only so....
