Thug Life: Who’s your daddy? Apparently, no one

Maybe if blacks would stop killing each other, having babies out of wedlock and basically acting like thugs, people wouldn’t call them thugs.
In a bold move to show residents, the pathology of violence they encounter and who is perpetrating the crimes, the Omaha Police Officers Association posted a video of a “local black thug” spewing profanity, sexual and violent laced language at a toddler.
Mr. Thug was so proud of his video masterpiece, he posted it on Facebook and his black friends cheered him on.
Liberals and some liberal blacks have expressed disdain for the Omaha police in posting the video, claiming it stereotypes blacks and the man’s behavior is an anomaly. But the opposite is true. In DC where I currently live and witness frequently uneducated blacks calling each other and their children the same sorts of heinous names.
I have never seen white people talk to each other this way, much less their children. While black activists and liberals can try to pretend, we all know hip hop and rap glorify and extol this exact thug culture, using the very same offensive words in their music. So let’s stop pretending.
Truth isn’t politically correct. Facts can be inconvenient to those who want to live in a society which doesn’t offend people. But we need to start offending people with the truth – like the Omaha Police Officers Association did – about what’s keeping blacks as a race economically enslaved to a cycle of poverty and government dependency.
The ugly truth is blacks, who represent a mere 13% of the population, are committing most of the violent crimes in America and 55% of federal prisoners are black. About 54% of all homicides are murders of blacks and according to the Justice Department data from 1980 to 2008, “blacks were six times more likely than whites to be homicide victims and seven times more likely than whites to commit homicide.”
Looks like the face of the thug life is black, not white! And the Omaha police were correct, “soak this in. You are literally watching ‘the cycle’ of violence continue right in front of your eyes.” Police treat the symptoms of the disease, which is the utter destruction of the black family.
In 1964, Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Lyndon B. Johnson, observed in his report The Negro Family: the Case for National Action, “the family structure of lower class Negroes is highly unstable , and in many urban centers is approaching complete breakdown.” At the time about 24% of black babies were born to single mothers compared to 3% of whites.
Moynihan further observed, “The steady expansion of this welfare program, as of public assistance programs in general, can be taken as a measure of the steady disintegration of the negro family structure over the past generation.” And things have only gotten worse for blacks since.
When 72% of black babies today are born into fatherless homes, they have no example of loving parents to emulate. These children born to mothers without husbands generally don’t graduate from high school and turn to a life of crime—thuggery. Growing up being called repugnant names that any mannered human being wouldn’t call their pets much less their children, these children grow up into thugs and repeat the cycle.
As the Omaha police noted, this pathology is “a powerful cycle the police alone can’t stop” in Omaha or any other city. It’s time our country reform it’s welfare policies and stop rewarding women with housing, food and money for having babies without fathers and start punishing the men who impregnate them.
