Response to Brothawolf


First: a rather lengthy bit of background: A few posts ago, Brothawolf and I had an interaction in which he alleged that I censored one of his posts. I did not do that. I have the contents of the post to which he’s referring, because he re-posted it on his own blog, after having claimed that we’d censored it on ours. To repeat: it never arrived here.

For all people, of those who (1) graduate from high school, (2) don’t have a child out of wedlock, and (3) get a job, the poverty rate is less than two percent. That’s it. If you start from that basis, you have a greater than 98% chance of never being poor in America! Continue reading Black Americans: Do You Want To Prosper in America Today? (Part II)
