The Bigotry of Entitlement

Tavis Smiley stated on the O’Reilly Factor (Fox News) that, while racism and discrimination are real, government programs leading to the dissolution of the black family are a major contributor to poverty within the African American community. He stated that those programs have discouraged fatherhood (Breitbart).

I believe that government actions have been the primary contributor to the dissolution of the family across races but even more so within African American communities. Those actions, while presented as “helping”, are the epitome of bigotry. Lowering expectations treating people as incapable, and enabling self-defeating behaviors are all racist actions.

There is one very simple fact that leftists don’t want to face:

Entitlement doesn’t end poverty. It is one of the major factors in its creation.  Empowerment is the first step toward ending it.


About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".
