    Fair enough; here is a list of things he said that I agree with:

    Larry Elder
    965 people were killed by cops last year, 4% of them were white cops shooting unarmed blacks.
    In Chicago where population is 1/3 black, 70% of the homicides were black on black with 75% of those homicides unsolved. Where is the black outrage with that.

    Here he spits out a lot of stats, I haven’t checked to see how accurate they are, but if what he is saying is true, there is something very wrong with what we see in the media. If only 4% of the police shootings are white cops shooting unarmed black men, IMO most of the outrage we see is media induced because all we get from the media is the 4% and the 96% is ignored; and people are reacting to what they see from the media


    Larry Elder
    1900 a Black kid was more likely to be born into a nuclear intact family than a white kid. We launched this war on poverty in the 1960”s when Lyndon Johnson sent people door to door allowing women welfare as long as there was no man in the house; and we went from 25% of black children born out of wedlock in 1965 to the 75% we have right now. Both liberal and conservative sources agree there is a direct link between crime, bad schools, going to prison and not having a father in the house. This is a discussion nobody wants to talk about because it might cause them to rethink their assumptions.

    Here makes the point that welfare resulted in the breakdown of the black family, and this is what leads to the major issues black people are dealing with today, an issue nobody wants to talk about it. I think this is an excellent point

    Larry Elder
    The number 1 cause of preventable deaths of white men is car accidents. The number 1 cause of preventable deaths of black men is homicide committed by other blacks. I am called Coconut, as in brown on the outside white on the inside, Oreo; same concept, Uncle Tom, they have got to malign someone like me because I am a bigger threat to their way of thinking than anybody else. I’ve never heard Rush Limbaugh called anti white because he criticizes white liberals; but I criticize black liberals and they call me anti black.

    (Reply)
    Here he makes some points about anybody that goes against “the powers that be” in the black community, are vilified; but the same is not for whites. And this idea that car accidents is #1 killer of whites, and homicide is #1 killer of blacks is something everybody should be outraged about.

    Larry Elder
    The democratic party is completely beholden to the teachers Union and vise versa. The Union is opposed to vouchers where the money follows the kid rather than the other way around. Inner City parents want vouchers because they know the schools in their neighborhoods suck! because only 3% of the kids can do math at grade level. Privatizing social security, school vouchers, abortion, same sex marriage, all of these issues black people are not in lock step with the democratic party. But the Democratic party has convinced black people that racism, this white cop, this man is out to get you, so vote for me and I will fix all of that.

    (Reply)
    Here he makes the claim that the Democratic party has successfully convinced black people to vote race, and ignore all the other issues. I think there are other reasons blacks vote primarily democratic that he didn’t mention, but he made some good points about how many of the views of blacks are not in line with the democratic party yet they vote democratic anyway.

    These are some of my views on what he said; anybody else care to give a perspective?
