[OFF-TOPIC]

"Non-White" "Non-Latino White" "Latino" ? Where are "White-Asians" "Non-White Asians" "Black Latinos" "Non-Black Latinos" "Asian Latinos" Non-Asian Non-Black Latinos" etc.....

I will NEVER understand the logic about how U.S. identify ethinicities. Never.

Correlation is a necessary (but not sufficient) condition for causality and can't be dismissed so easily if you have many individual observations that demonstrate the point (someone without a family can't rely on parents, siblings etc for support and can be on the streets faster).

The war on drugs and therefore the republicans are the main culprit in all of this.

Drugs are good for family cohesion? Would you marry an addict?



Alot is going wrong in the US and it's being left behind.

Marriege is the least of the problems. Education, racism and safety are the biggest.

Exactly, the war on drugs just makes the addiction problem worse, so ending the War on Drugs would be a benefit.

The laws are flawed, so possession of "light" drugs (anything that is less severe than the likes of cocaine and heroine) can lead to imprisonment. Families are teared apart because of the war on drugs and its unreasonable punishments. A large portion of the prisoners who were put into jail because of light drugs are either blacks or latinos which just so happen to be the groups most affected by single parenthood. Handing out sentences like social work hours would not only be more appropriate, but also reduce/solve the very problem you raised with this thread.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Republicans are also the main culprit of the shitty healthcare USA has. In most states abortion isn't covered except in the most extreme cases, so it's a luxury poor people (blacks and latinos are poorer on average than whites) can't afford.
