Why can't black people get it together?

Honestly. I know where i live ( Toronto, Canada) black people have the high rate of people using government assistance. Such as subsidized housing, Welfare, Childcare, etc. I saw this on CNN. about 70% of black women in America have a child with someone they're not yet married to.

I saw this on CNN. about 70% of black women in America have a child with someone they're not yet married to. In a lot of cases this man just walks off for various. a small portion actually get married LEGALLY.

In my community- i know a ton of black people who deal drugs.like Cocain, Weed, Ectasy and what ever else they deal. A decade ago they had the lowest graduation rate from high school and the lowest marks! ( this is somewhat improving). But in our schools.. the ones with the most black students ( and a mix of southern Americans) tend to be the worst. Most crime, less graduates etc.

ON THE STREET-, oh man. Atleast where i live they're really disrespectful ( some but they're are some who are nice). Noisy, fight the most on the public bus. Kiss their teeth. The boys who think they're hood. where baggy everything and a fitted hat. Girls i don't really have to much of oppinion but can be really bad.

On Television-I see Barack Obama. Oprah , Will Smith, The new head of the Republican party i believe is black. and thats mostly it. They talk about black history sometimes but today whats going on? I see drug addicts. stupid rappers like the " BIRDMAN" wtf? who talk about women like they;re worthless. Use the N word like it's nothing when it's a racist term. And YELL racist when a white guy uses it but its ok to call my friend a ******? cause im black?

Seriously why can't they? Maybe im just losing it?
Update: oh or Michael Vick? Michael Jackson uhh.. yea?
Update 2: i didn't mean all blacks i just hate the fact when a black person tries do something succesfull they get brought down.

EXAMPLE: Some black people where saying Barack Obama is not black enough.
Update 3: ANOTHER Example. Where i live My section of townhouses are subsidized by the government they are so dirty!!! Filth trash everywhere.

Just across they're are town houses there that have less filth. And it's just across. It will take me literraly 30 seconds to walk/jog there. But you see the difference!
Update 4: city Girl. I know they;re are some i don't mean ALL black people. Im black. My stepbrother ( black) and step sister were pushed through school and stuff. But when i take a quick look where i live and check out things. It's just bad. Yes it does have to do with environment. If i could make legislation i... show more city Girl. I know they;re are some i don't mean ALL black people. Im black. My stepbrother ( black) and step sister were pushed through school and stuff. But when i take a quick look where i live and check out things. It's just bad. Yes it does have to do with environment. If i could make legislation i would make people living in government housing work more. Can you believe some people they're live in 3 bedroom apartments and only pay $250 in rent? They cheat the system. You obviously don;t and i admire you for that. More black people should be like u.
Update 5: Lady Moe 34- Im black i don't find it ignorant at all. When you love your kids and you can obviously see they're making mistakes will you not point them out on it? Maybe you weren't raised like that but i was. In witchita you probably know why you can;t get a job? It's whats associated with you... show more Lady Moe 34- Im black i don't find it ignorant at all.

In witchita you probably know why you can;t get a job? It's whats associated with you being black. When they see black they see stupid gangsters who treat women like trash. That why you can't get the job and that's where PREJUDICE i see comes from. I don;t 100% agree with white but when you look at the KKK what are they're arguments based on? They see people like Lil Wayne with his diamond teeth and think. What the hell? no wonder are country is messed. It;s not just because your black.
Update 6: Maybe where you people live its different. Hopefully most of you have heard of Toronto. There is so much and it is so much abused. Then it's the middle class who has to pay for this non sense. That why taxes in our city ( property) were raised!
Update 7: Jimmy C this is the same stupidity i'm talking about here. It's like i push my self to try and be successful and get some answers questioned and because i ask something that goes against my race you don't think i'm black? Ignorant.
Update 8: Mark Hensely- i always knew they're were more whites in America on welfare.. because they're are more whites in America then blacks! White take up like 80% of the population what would you expect? but when you get percentage wise more blacks are on Welfare. And i was just adressing welfare, they can get... show more Mark Hensely- i always knew they're were more whites in America on welfare.. because they're are more whites in America then blacks!
