I don't know what kind of career you had as a photographer, but my bet is that it was much better than some of those kids in your hood, and many kids elsewhere, will ever have. There are people who dream of being a photographer, and never make it. You did.
I was actually never a professional photographer, but I was a federal employee, and I do have an associates degree in the subject.
I also don't know what kind of funk you have yourself in, but maybe you might consider passing on some of that knowledge. Ever thought of teaching a neighborhood photography workshop? My bet is that there are kids in that hood that would much rather find themselves shooting a camera than a gun.
Well, I simply don't like kids. As for my "funk", it comes from watching these parasitic wild animals take every last dime from the people they "serve", and still have nothing to show for it, save for the empty containers littering the street from the Chinese take out. Jobs in pro photography are as rare as hens teeth. It would be better to make jobs available in the "hood" on a more practical and more widespread basis. That's not a job for me, it would be a job for the politicians.


What have you got to lose? You just might find your humanity staring back at you in the eyes of those kids. That way, you won't need Hillary or Trump stepping in, you could wave your magic lens and save that hood yourself.
For what it's worth, "humanity", is partly a conceit of man. From a biological standpoint, there are two species in the genus "Pan", troglodytes, and paniscus. Many biologists believe, since they share >99% of "Homo sapiens" DNA, that our species should actually be included in the genus Pan. We skate by on the fact the the genus "Homo" existed before "Pan" was named, and we're in the genus Homo, simply by being "grandfathered into it".

I suppose you'll just make some sort of excuse to pass it off and go on blathering about how we're in pure darwinism.
Where in god's name did you even come up with the idea I have to explain or make excuses to you? Sounds like a bunch of liberal bullsh!t to me. "The only true democracy is liberal democracy, and the only true compassion is "liberal compassion". Spare me..

Your suggestion is several pages worth of comprehensively impractical, both in the instant and overall sense.. The last time I heard about a barrio youth photographer, was when he got beat up, his camera stolen, and made the evening news. Take out "photographer", and insert "whatever occupation", in a great many circumstances, the negative results will be equivalent.

There are (ostensibly) many programs in place to undertake that which you seem to believe you can guilt or shame me into undertaking. And again, spare me.

Here's a hint, a great many of the black people who actually want to work, are doing exactly that. In many case as a result of "affirmative action". If I call the police, there is a real possibility a Muslim black woman might respond to the call.

Now "liberal politicians" have championed the cause of those poor unfortunate inner city blacks for decades.
But on about the 2nd page of the psych manual is the fact the no human endeavor is undertaken without an ulterior motive.

From time to time a politician will take on the challenge you have extended to me. It's called a "test case", whether or not iit succeeds is moot. Come election time, the same politician will start spouting something on the order of, "look at all I've done for you, you must elect me, so I can continue to "fight the good fight". The reality of the situation is, there was one test case, while hundreds of millions of dollars have been pissed away in the ghetto, simply so the indolent there, can breed more voters.

Your brand of liberalism requires idealism, naivete, and detachment. None of us can truly have accurate opinions, without walking in the other's shoes. So while it's wonderful to sit out in the suburbs and go through the motions of, "worrying about those poor black souls. I can assure you, were you to become my unfortunate neighbor, familiarity with a great many of these people would breed the same contempt in you, that is has in me.

When I was born, you were just getting your adult hormones. You would truly have to be a wizard to have dealt with your stuff by that age. Congratulations on dealing with it.
When I was a young adult we had "black power salutes" at the Olympics, instead of hands on hearts. This was supposed to provoke the implementation of equality. But from where I sit, all it did was give us misogynistic, vulgar crap, which attempts to pass itself off as "music", and professional athletes who no longer put their hands over their hearts when the "Star Spangled Banner" comes on. So tell me, isn't "black lives matter", the same regurgitated bullshit as "black power", and do you think these people will ever believe they've attained "equal rights", before you're living in a cardboard box, and they've taken your house off of you? So I'm pretty sure this is true, "the more things change, the more they stay the same".

The moral of the story is, that which the inner city doesn't strip uselessly from our economy to breed more bouncing baby voters, the drug dealers continue the robbery by sending a good chunk of what's left to Afghanistan and Columbia for heroine and cocaine respectively.

I pity you crank. Especially since it all comes down to you. In no way did I imply you had to explain sh!t to me, but you sure as hell read that into what I said. That's your sh!t, not mine. You just like to fight, then pass it off as some bs darwinism. Don't like where you are, find a way to move. Perhaps you should consider that you have not dealt with as much of your sh!t as you think you have.

Unfortunately for you, or so it seems, there is this thing called the first amendment in the US - which extends to art, music, the right to pledge or not to pledge, and it is part of the bill of rights as you pointed out. I don't agree with most of the content of rap either, but it is an expression of the first amendment even if I don't like it. If you don't like that, that is also your problem. I don't like it either, but in no way would I ever suggest that those who spout that crap should stop doing it just because I don't like it, nor would I imply that govt should step in and eliminate it. Eliminating it will not solve the underlying causes, rather, as I see it, it would simply be wack-a-mole, and the underlying causes would pop up elsewhere.

In case you were wondering, it is also called over-generalization when your opinion of all who might fit a certain profile is based on a small sample. Do you find that Neil deGrasse Tyson should also be classified as producing sh!t?

Why don't you lobby Trump and his extremist cronies to reverse the bill of rights? Then you can have everyone expressing their allegiance to this country in the only manner you approve of. People will not have to complain about North Korea then, the US would be its implicit ally.

How I view the trash out there is that it is a symptom of a much deeper problem. I wish I had the answer on how to solve it; I recognize, however, that I don't. In the meantime, the band aides applied by virtually any political entity in an effort to solve the problems have never had the desired effect. Might, perhaps, is the worst of all band aides attempted over time. Yet, as I stated prior, some have yet to learn this lesson. In the meantime, paranoia and fear have taken over, and all the rhetoric spouted so far has done nothing but amplify that fear because there are people out there who seem incapable of seeing beyond the fear. Oh poor me! they shout!

Many, many, many times before in history might has done its task. DaVinci discovered heart disease 500 years ago, but his discovery was banished by the pope. We might just be 500 years further along in terms of medicine IF the pope at that time was not so full of himself. The Library of Alexandria was destroyed by might and 99.9 percent of all that knowledge lost; there is no telling where that trove of knowledge might have lead.

That is what might has given humanity - absolutely nothing.

You cite the current structure of congress as modeled from the house of lords, but it sure sounds like you, yourself, are ready to lord it over everyone, and completely throw out any actions by other people that you consider unamerican because you are just the perfect model of an outstanding american citizen so much so that all should model their behavior on yours. Praise the almighty Crank! :bow:

All the crap you see out there is a mirror. Good luck looking into it. I hope Trump and his cronies bring you the america that suits you. As I see it, what they are doing will not solve anything. And, as I see it, Hillary would have done little to solve the deeper problems either. This country is so polarized right now that everyone thinks they have the answer when most are taking the band aide approach - yet again. Without cooperation, america has become little more than a dictatorship.

If it will make you feel better, pipe your toilet out the window and laugh at all who walk by as you flush...

And listen to you. "You pity me". Think highly of our self, do we? Perhaps I should be god damned grateful that I have some pseudo liberal condescending to me.

Oh, and I should have put up with more nonsense from you, to give me my first amendment "right to complain"? You're starting to talk your two a**es, instead of your normal one.

I didn't read squat into you last post. You simply can't grasp the context and syntax or your own writing, or conveniently choose not to.

Unfortunately for you, or so it seems, there is this thing called the first amendment in the US - which extends to art, music, the right to pledge or not to pledge, and it is part of the bill of rights as you pointed out. I don't agree with most of the content of rap either, but it is an expression of the first amendment even if I don't like it. If you don't like that, that is also your problem.

Well, "the First Amendment" gets trampled on everyday, and you and your family are the beneficiaries of it. Broadcasters all need to have what is known as "standards and practices" department, which works in concert with the FCC, (that's the Federal Communications Commission), to thwart whatever garbage, hate speech, and profanity, might be inappropriate for your family. I don't hear you ranting mindlessly against that, now do I? Test out "free speech" for your self. Walk into a crowded theater and shout, "I have a gun", or, "fire", and see how that works out for you.
In case you were wondering, it is also called over-generalization when your opinion of all who might fit a certain profile is based on a small sample.
It's also called "inductive reasoning". So kindly stop trying to talk down to me. You simply don't have the chops for it.

Do you find that Neil deGrasse Tyson should also be classified as producing sh!t?
There are a lot more petty drug dealers, than there are Neil deGrasse Tysons. Does he deal drugs in the ghetto? If not, that's a stupid liberal question, based on one of those "test cases" a simpleton might parade around defending his or her concept of "equality", while pretending to have his or her own, "special insight into the basic goodness in all of of humanity".

Whether or not a human does indeed possess a "good heart", is entirely dependent on his or her "socialization". Whether an individual knows right from wrong, is again dependent on whether or not he or she was taught right from wrong, period.

You apparently haven't understood a word I've said thus far about the original "Civil Rights Movement". Mr. deGrasse Tyson is a "stellar" example, (pun intended), of why the movement was so very necessary. African Americans did indeed need it to to become equal participants in a functioning society.

Unfortunately, this "2nd iteration of a civil right movement", is a lot more indicative of how dysfunctional the "American way of life", has become.

Why don't you lobby Trump and his extremist cronies to reverse the bill of rights? Then you can have everyone expressing their allegiance to this country in the only manner you approve of. People will not have to complain about North Korea then, the US would be its implicit ally.
OK, this is simply cheap taunting. It's ignorant, completely fabricated for your own convenience, non productive, and childish.

Unless you're trying to claim that Madam Clinton would have been a better choice, "to uphold and defend the constitution against all threats foreign and domestic", in which case, it's just indicative of how butt hurt you are about Trump's election. You should be out on the streets picketing, Why argue with only me? Unless it is "emotional Darwinism". Which you could sum up in context with something more succinct like, "cranky you're an a**hole, and I'm not". Don't think too much about it too much, let that reptile brain loose to do as it sees fit. You'll never win a Nobel prize in literature, but you'll feel better about yourself, and that's about all that matters, isn't it?

How I view the trash out there is that it is a symptom of a much deeper problem. I wish I had the answer on how to solve it; I recognize, however, that I don't. In the meantime, the band aides applied by virtually any political entity in an effort to solve the problems have never had the desired effect.

We are working on about the third generation of the welfare state. Granted, the problems that present themselves are inextricable linked to the failure of the family unit, as it existed previously.. None of this current generation's concept of "extended family", "baby daddies", nor "I'm black so I'm automatically bein' 'scriminated against", are anything other than a symptom of "the decline and fall of the United States of America Empire".

A lack of jobs greatly exacerbates the problem. But the solution to that problem lies greatly in good old fashioned, "bumper sticker wisdom", "don't breed 'em, if you can't feed 'em".

Simply uttering these magic words, "I got me these kids", shouldn't automatically grant you the keys to the kingdom.

Which is why, I cringe at Trump's promise to "defund planned parenthood, and overturn Row v. Wade". Hopefully, these are campaign promises he'll break, or be unable to keep.


Many, many, many times before in history might has done its task. DaVinci discovered heart disease 500 years ago, but his discovery was banished by the pope.

At least 90+% of that "knowledge" would have long been disproved by modern science. As to the rest of it, we already have an overabundance of "contemporary philosophers", better known as "hip hop artists", who really can't see much beyond the end of "their block", much less go to school or a library. (And yes, I understand there are likely exceptions to that, but as always spare me you rendition of what you think I mean). In this century any condemnation of anything, is viewed as either "over-generalization", or flat out simply, "politically incorrect".


That is what might has given humanity - absolutely nothing.
You conveniently forget all of history just so your can rave on.

I'll tell you what might has given me. The freedom to not speak German or Japanese. If that reference is too vague for you, look up "Second World War". I know the Library of Alexandria was destroyed. but you wouldn't find any reference tp WWII there, but it was "after that library's time", so to speak.. You could try the vast amount of knowledge contained in a modern public library, and best of all, it would be free!


You cite the current structure of congress as modeled from the house of lords, but it sure sounds like you, yourself, are ready to lord it over everyone, and completely throw out any actions by other people that you consider unamerican because you are just the perfect model of an outstanding american citizen so much so that all should model their behavior on yours. Praise the almighty Crank! :bow:
From exactly what school system are you pretending to have, "graduated"?

Our present legislative branch of the government is patterned exactly after the British system, less a queen, of course.
The "House of Representatives" is equivalent to the British, "House of Commons", (equal representation by population), and Senate is equivalent to "The House of Lords", (Equal representation by DOMAIN, territory or whatever you want to call it).

Besides, this ad hominem bullsh!t "bow to cranky" is even beneath me to try and pass off as "posting". You don't even have the class to Capitalize the proper noun "America".

All the crap you see out there is a mirror. Good luck looking into it. I hope Trump and his cronies bring you the america that suits you. As I see it, what they are doing will not solve anything. And, as I see it, Hillary would have done little to solve the deeper problems either. This country is so polarized right now that everyone thinks they have the answer when most are taking the band aide approach - yet again. Without cooperation, america has become little more than a dictatorship.
It would be much better for you to think of me as "a passive observer". For most intents and purposes, I am also the last of my line.

I was trying to give you a heads up on what is actually happening. At the last census, the white birthrate equaled the white death rate. Which means, given time, other races not so "socially aware of population issues", are going to breed you, your heirs, and their assigns per stirpes, off the face of the earth. I only wish I could be around with a 55 gallon drum of popcorn to watch.

Do have a nice day

And BTW, I'm not a racist, I'm an "ethnocentric".
