    Bob Wizenhut: Well, you challenged me earlier to talk about DACA in terms of theology and not politics. I will yet do that. In the mean time your post here covers much territory. I will try to handle one thing at a time. You said, at the outset : “as we try to get black America out of poverty”. But that begs the question “How did black America get INTO poverty in the FIRST place?” Aside from time periods like that of slavery and after that Reconstruction and the reign of “Jim Crow” in the South together with bad attitudes towards blacks in the North in the 50’s, how. for the rest of our history AFTER those days, did black America manage to continue in the poverty line even after the granting of civil rights, various work opportunities and government help programs? How did Detroit, Michigan become what it is today? (And I’m not referring to the onset of the “Rust Belt” after the downturn in auto-production there)? How did Gary, Indiana become that? Camden, New Jersey? When we talk about how WE (all Americans) need to help Black America out of poverty, is there, in that notion, included the measure of responsibility by black Americans for their own status and plight? You mention work and the work ethic. Has a good work ethic always been present in the black community, at least since modern times? . . .
