Somehow I missed this piece on American Thinker over a week ago. But it is well worth reading. In it, Kaitz answers the question of why Vietnamese refugees in the 70s got so far ahead of other minorities, especially blacks. After a decade of working their buns off, they were getting the best SAT scores, being admitted to the best colleges and being hired for better and higher paying jobs.
The answer is shocking and hits the nail on the head. Read the whole thing and let your mind be blown. Is it race? Or is it of mindset? Most conservatives today already know the answer to this. But it bears repeating. And repeating. And repeating.
Those of us who feel anything is owed us will always fall behind. But only 100% of the time.
And so it is with many blacks and many race baiters, all with the attitude: "We're owed."
"We're owed." "We're justified."
Obama is a candidate who is reinforcing a "We're owed" mindset that has held blacks back for decades. His presidency will only lead them to more unresponsibility and more unaccountability.
Thanks to CA for the tip.
