Black people don't want to pay for health care. The state of Black America is in shambles and Black unemployment levels is reaching unprecedented levels.
The Urban League is reporting that the gap in nearly every category that is quantifiable between white and Black people is growing and CNN is worried about the nearly irreparable damage to those who happen to be Black in America. The Urban League put out a list of how this can be accomplished and the mere redistribution of wealth can stop the growing rip in racial relations:
Grant proposes that a movement to foster equality for blacks in all realms of American life should be "fashioned" after ideas promulgated by the Obama campaign. Those ideas include blending personal responsibility and "principled ideas" with pragmatism, and building grass-roots movements crossing racial, ethnic, generational, gender and regional lines.
CNN calls these facts "sobering" and an example of "racial inequality". We at SBPDL call them what happens when graduation rates are woeful for Black people; Father's Day a rarely celebrated event in the Black community and worse, nature rearing her ugly head."We must use this moment to reinvigorate the movement and re-engage the nation in a struggle to finish the job of equality, liberty and justice for all ," she said.The report lists policy recommendations in the areas of home ownership, jobs, health and education. Here is a sampling:
Increasing funding for underskilled workers' job training programs.
Steering workforce investment dollars to construction industry jobs.
Funding infrastructure development for public building construction and renovations of schools, community centers, libraries, recreation centers and parks.
Creating a temporary public service employee program.
Passing a home buyers' bill of rights that would protect and educate consumers and provide home-buying help.
Restoring a small business loan program and continuing tax credit funding.
Implementing "a comprehensive and universal health insurance system for all Americans."
Developing "a comprehensive health infrastructure for the delivery of health education, prevention and intervention initiatives" for blacks.
Studying health care in the criminal justice system as it relates to black inmates.
Examining economic, sociological and environmental contributors to "chronic health conditions."
Expect a push for a nationwide Michael Oher Act (the Black guy from The Blind Side) in the vain hope that the tides will change for Black people. Sadly, they will not.
But with the passing of universal health care, at least a few more jobs will open up in the government for Black people to fill.
So, for those who love the inadequate postal service; trips to the DMV that last months; dealing with surly TSA agents while being treated like a hardened terrorist and a education system capable of creating a near illiterate people, then you'll love health care.
Stuff Black People Don't Like started as a joke. We are proud to say we have been chronicling life in Black Run America (BRA) for nearly a year, and have created a most unpleasant panorama of life in the United States as the nation limps to a whimpering finale.
Disingenuous White Liberals will never stop prodding Black people about their current failures to attain equilibrium with white people and Black people will never stop blaming the past transgressions of white people for their current failures.
Reparations are coming to rectify historic inequities and the current inability for Black people to market themselves adequately outside of government employment. So is a financial judgment day that will make the 50,000 Black people who lined up in Detroit on the mere rumor of a stimulus check in 2009 look like a mere line for a roller coaster.
That dear reader, will truly be a big f***ing deal.
