This is really funny here. Blacks are rating Southern cities higher than Democratically controlled areas for where they want to live. http://www.blackenterprise.com/mag/t...mericans-2007/ Specifically Texas and North Carolina each got two choices.
People can try and point out the living standards or the education standards of the Southern state but they keep leaving out the most important point. Southern states don't spend any money on anything. Their schools suck because they are low tax, low service states. Meanwhile cities like Oakland, CA and Milwaukee, WI, Detroit, MI etc. spend over $10,000 per student and actually rank lower than the southern states in education. What is better having low service/low tax or low service/high tax?
Anyone that doesn't see a correlation between stronger Democratic/Liberal control and worse living conditions is just lying to themselves.

To the OP:
The reason for this is simple.......schools are not doing their jobs. With "No Child Left Behind" taking funding from any schools whose students do not pass standardized tests, schools focus completely on test taking and not on actually educating students.

I've never been to Detroit. But my kids went to a "Detroit" school, for a short time til I moved to another location.

However, when enough systems fail the machine stops functioning. When enough systems fail for a society it collapses.
American popular culture, public education, economic organization, political culture, and other systems are failing one by one. When enough of the systems fail America will be gone as we know it.
