Rep. Lee: Ryan’s Comments On Inner City Culture Are A ‘Racial Attack’

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) on Wednesday slammed Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) claim that there is an inner city “culture problem” of men not working.

“My colleague Congressman Ryan’s comments about ‘inner city’ poverty are a thinly veiled racial attack and cannot be tolerated. Let’s be clear, when Mr. Ryan says ‘inner city,’ when he says, ‘culture,’ these are simply code words for what he really means: ‘black,'” she said in a statement.

On Wednesday morning, Ryan said that the culture in inner cities contributes to poverty.

“We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work, and so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with,” he said.

Lee said that he has nothing to back up his claim.

“As someone who sits on the Budget Committee with Mr. Ryan, I know that his assertions about the racial dynamics of poverty are not only statistically inaccurate, but deeply offensive,” she said. “Instead of demonizing ‘culture,’ and blaming black men for their poverty, Mr. Ryan should step up and produce some legitimate proposals on how to tackle poverty and racial discrimination in America.”


God forbid we should have an open and honest discussion about the causes of chronic poverty in our inner cities. Black people are poor because of racism. To suggest otherwise is racism. The only correct solution to poverty is more government.

Now STFU, because racism.

    The problem with shouting a non sequitur at someone to shut them up is not that they stop talking to you (one of the goals is social, emotional, or political isolation to makes people toe the line) but that they go talk to someone else who doesn’t do that who then makes their point and possibly changes their mind. The “racist” illogical non-argument avoidance bullying technique has driven me to listen to Charles Krauthammer. Shout nonsense and condescend to me and I’ll go talk to someone else. It is an adolescent behavior.

      I made the comment last evening on Facebook that although I had logged hundreds of hours for Hillary Clinton in 2008, if she runs next time I will not vote for her. Without even asking why, I was accused of racism. Last I checked Hillary Clinton and I are both white women in our 60’s. I thinking it’s telling, though, that if you don’t support Clinton, you are going to be called racist as well as sexist. So, yes, I, too, listen to Krauthammer and Victor Davis Hansen, and other rational voices from the right because the left has lost its mind.

      • Somebody says:

        Oh goodie so if you don’t support Hillary you’re racist AND sexist, good grief.

      So sad but true. Many people are beginning to tune out the left and their absolutely crazy spiel. Utopia does not and has not ever existed although the left continues to hype the ‘Potenkin’ villages. Their refusal to see reality doesn’t bode well for their future. One of these days I’ll write about my Dad who left Russia in the chaos at the end of WW11.

          As I have often said before, I think everyone should make a point to regularly watch/read/listen to some people they disagree with. Too many people create their own echo chambers.

  3. DandyTIger says:

    I’ve decided people doing this, which sadly includes many active Dems these days, are completely insane. They don’t want solutions to anything. They just want to sit in the middle of the playground and have a hissy fit. So I’ve stopped listening to them altogether. Anything else they say or try to argue or defend, is because they’re nuts, and not because there is anything valid in what they’re saying. And my default is to assume is the opposite of what they’re pushing. I think a lot of people are starting to do that, hence the political trending we’re seeing, and likely 2014 outcome. I hope that was their goal, otherwise, we’re right, they really are insane.

    • Lulu says:

      Having raised three young adults I see arrested development, juvenile behavior and tactics, and plain old dumbness everywhere in the Democratic Party. Greedy, self interested, manipulative teenagers act like this and continue to do so unless forced to grow up with some major setbacks and humiliations. The behavior has been normalized from the top and essentially how I see Obama and his advisers which quickly spread to his supporters. In 2008 when he misbehaved or acted like a dick his sycophants swiftly followed. I think he is the first Teenager President in that he isn’t as smart as he thinks he is, he is lazy, ignorant and disorganized, sarcastic and thin skinned, and is not in touch with the reality of the crap he spouts, and throws a fit if told no. President Arrested Development doesn’t have to follow no rules.

        Hmmm do you think we’re regressing and next we’ll elect a tween?

        • Lulu says:

          I liked my kids as tweens. They were sweet and still eager to learn and interact. It was the 12-13 until 15-16 stretch that was hell. After 15 or so they had their hats on straight thanks to a united front of daddy and me. I even like two year olds because you can see their little minds working out things. Older teens and young adults are great if they are critical thinkers and not too vain. I think we will elect adults and hopefully wise ones. Youth and ignorance is highly overrated. And frigging expensive!

    To be fair we have a chronic poverty problem in rural areas of our country too, see Appalachia.

    As a country we really do need to address chronic poverty and generational government dependence. Contrary to Ms. Lee’s assertions we actually have a lot of data to back up the fact that we have pockets of multi-generational dependence in our country, yes Ms. Lee data shows that it exists in the inner city. The USA isn’t unique on that score btw, other countries of varying ethnicity across the globe have the same issue.

    I read an interesting report years ago from the UN (I know), but seriously it was a very interesting report on chronic poverty and government dependence. The report looked at nations across the globe and their programs. It was very interesting that most of the western countries had similar rates of chronic poverty/dependence, except Australia. Australia’s rate was about half of the other countries looking back across the years in good and bad economic times Australia tended to track much lower on the rate of dependence.

    The findings in the report were that pretty much every country has the same basic types of programs, some more programs than others but all of them income based with a strict upper income cut off. Australia on the other hand has sliding scale with a sliding reduction in benefits going up to around the $80,000 – $90,000 or so annual income depending on the number of children, etc. The report found that most people in the upper income levels in Australia didn’t seek out assistance because at the highest income level it amounted to only a couple of hundred dollars a year. The conclusion of the report was that the policies of most western countries with a strict income cut off provides and disincentive for working because you lose so many benefits once you start earning money thus making a transition much more difficult. The report credited Australia’s more “liberal” programs with allowing for transition out of poverty without severe penalty experienced by many of the poor in other countries.

    I think revamping our system in such a way would be really difficult I can’t see very many republicans going along with something like that. Our country is quite different not only due to size, but also the fact we have so many illegals which a country like Australia doesn’t have. Australia also has “socialized” medicine, they have Medicare for all, so health care doesn’t really figure into their social programs like Medicaid does with ours. They also provide college for everyone so that’s a difference too. It’s not an exact apple to apple, but definitely food for thought. It’s also not a panacea Australia still has a chronicically dependent population albeit a smaller one.

    I think there is merit to taking a serious look at revamping our system in such a way. I’m fairly conservative myself so I’d want to consider maybe lifetime limits on TOTAL dependence (exceptions for somebody being run over by a bus or whatever), perhaps you could garner more interest by adding something like that. I wonder if a package that included changing things more on a sliding scale coupled with some kind of limits would have a chance? I think we have to address anchor babies too, I’ve seen reports that anchor babies and their families are responsible for anywhere from 15% to 33% of our SNAP, etc. benefits. Don’t ask me why nobody can agree on the percentages but either way given our total budget on said items it’s a big chunk of change and needs to be addressed.

    Bottom line though, no matter what changes may or may not be considered none of it will matter unless we can get our economy going and provide jobs. Yes teaching a man to fish is far better than giving him a fish, but if the pond is empty he won’t have any luck fishing.

    What a shame our elected leaders can’t sit down and have civil conversations about such important issues, instead they’d rather hurl insults and call each other names.

      I have come to the conclusion that all government programs as well as government in general intentionally obfuscate information to make it impossible to understand. No private business could operate the way government does.

    This is a great race-card judo post by zombie of pj media, takes 8 common progressive agendas and exposes the ahem, underlysing racism :

    http://pjmedia.com/zombie/2014/03/10/progressive-racism-the-hidden-motive-driving-modern-politics

    Progressive Racism: The Hidden Motive Driving Modern Politics
    Progressive politics is rooted in racism. Look carefully at most social or fiscal policies advocated by progressives and you’ll see that underneath their false public rationales lie hidden racist fears and assumptions — some of which the progressives may be too embarrassed to admit even to themselves, much less to the world.

    GUN CONTROL
    Progressive position:
    Restrict access to guns as much as possible; ultimately ban and confiscate them all.
    False public rationale offered by progressives to justify their position:
    Gun violence is a scourge on society; easy access to killing machines unnecessarily facilitates murder and crime.
    Conservatives’ inaccurate theory of progressives’ real intent:
    Progressives want to disarm the populace to prevent armed resistance to the eventual imposition of a leftist totalitarian police state.
    The actual racist origins of the progressive stance:
    White urban liberals are deathly afraid of black gangbangers with guns, but are ashamed to admit this publicly, so to mask their racist fears they try to ban guns for everyone, as a way of warding off the perception that their real goal is to target blacks specifically.

    Be sure to read the whole thing. Great ammo the next time you get race-carded.

      They cost too much! These are not people who can afford or who will prioritize insurance premiums. They spend on other things that are imperatives or that they want more. My 80 year old friend/insurance broker/salesman says it is the same people who drive around without car insurance or who have a house without property insurance for years. A law is not going to make them buy it because they frequently don’t file tax returns either. They break laws all the time.

      • Lulu says:

        I am not talking about people who are in bad situations like unemployment or big drops in their income from forces beyond their control and choice. Sometimes I sound like an asshole and I do not mean to do so. Everyone has rough financial times and something has to give or you can’t feed yourself.

      • Ann says:

        A friend of mine (Texas) was given a rate of $5796 a year for her family of three with a deductible of $12,700. They currently make about $20K a year. And they are supposed to afford this… how? I’m not sure if it is a case of people willfully ignoring the issue. More like “I can’t afford a second rent/mortgage/car payment in the form of insurance.”

    The Democratic Progs shut up everyone. Sharyl Attkisson is talking a little about her upcoming book. ““I hope to explore the unseen influences on and manipulation of the images and information the public receives in the media, whether it’s online on Wikipedia, or on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, or on television,” she told me.” Well duh.

        I had decided not to vote in this month’s primary, butt I just took a look at the voter information and saw that there are NO Republican candidates for anything in Cook County except the sanitary district board seats. NONE. Oh sure, there are candidates for state wide positions, and within some of the suburbs there may be challengers to some offices (butt not in my suburb). So this is simply more proof of the disingenuous election process here.

  17. The Klown says:

    Ace:

    Society has become too allergic to conflict and competition, and has created too many rules and penalties for such. This began (as most projects do) with a decent enough goal — let’s reduce conflict; let’s make life not so terribly competitive — but it has gone too far, and society now punishes these things too much, and therefore punishes basic human nature too much, and too strongly represses the vital animal spirits that propel humans and drive human betterment (on both a human and societal level).

    And this tends to make people bored (he talks about the boredom of modern society a lot), cowardly, passive, unproductive and ultimately empty.

    A “we had to destroy the village in order to save the village” sort of take on the project to denature the human spirit.
