"Flee the Cities!"

War Zones: As The Economy Dies, Murders, Shootings, Robberies And Looting Erupt All Over America
At the risk of being labeled a racist I'm going to point out the obvious about the two flash robbery videos at the link above. The convenience store robbery appeared to involve one white girl and a majority of male black teenagers. The robbery of the men's store appeared to be all black male teenagers. Whenever the mainstream media report on the number of minorities in jail, they generally imply it's because of racism. Maybe, just maybe it's because a higher percentage of minorities commit crimes relative to their numbers in the population.

But I wonder how much of the problem of rampaging black youngsters has to do with fatherlessness, a situation produced in large part by liberal government policies that destroyed the intact black family through insane welfare policies. Johnson's "great society" transformed a culture of mostly intact black families into a culture of single moms, many little more than children themselves, having babies out of wedlock. One of the biggest predictors for crime among black teens is the lack of dad in the home.

But not to worry, the equalizers are at work. The policy of no-fault divorce is at work now to do to the white family what was done to the black family. It won't be long before we see fatherless white males on the rampage as well. In the meantime, you'd be smart to follow the Biblical admonition to "flee the cities." Things are likely to get even worse as the economy continues to sink.

More here and here and here.

Mary Ann, this nation is reaping what it has sown, and so are many others. America legalized abortion on demand, no-fault divorce, etc., etc., etc., now we are reaping what we have sown. Some are fighting this culture war the in the best way they can, almost with one hand tied behind their backs. Now I have heard that Malta has legalized divorce. All we can do is pray that after the Maltese have played in the pigstye for awhile, the prodigals will come to their senses and return to their Father and to Holy Mother the Church. America is suffering the results of fatherlesss children. Will the Maltese do so too?

Conventional wisdom has it backward when it comes to the relationship between poverty and crime. I submit that it is crime that breeds poverty, not the other way around. And fatherless families -- which really is the fruit of the failure of individuals to govern their passions -- is at the root of it.
