    What in Tucket?

    " Well, you see: if no one feeds them, shows them how to stay in school, encourages them they can succeed, they are going to be in jail or at McDonald's.

    I have worked for decades in minority schools. They do receive:

    * food
    * advice for staying in school
    * encouragement for building skills

    What makes you think they don't?

    Don't listen to liberal propaganda.

    "Helping minority boys?
    Isn't that discriminating against non-minority boys?"

    -- I remember when Jesus told us to help everyone equally, no matter if some were poor, desperate and neglected.

    "The best way to help minority boys an girls is to have a strong economy. That requires less red tape, a simpler tax structure and lowering of taxes including corporate, and a serious reduction of red tape."

    -- Well, you see: if no one feeds them, shows them how to stay in school, encourages them they can succeed, they are going to be in jail or at McDonald's.

    The republican theme of making the rich richer so they will create jobs benefits youth from strong homes with good educational opportunities, but, in my view, violates of what Christianity teaches about brotherhood and responsibility.

    The idea that broken people from broken parts of society are ready to act like the kids at your stake is really quite prejudiced and sad.

    The best way to help minority boys an girls is to have a strong economy. That requires less red tape, a simpler tax structure and lowering of taxes including corporate, and a serious reduction of red tape. Then you will see millions of minority families entering the middle class.
