To those who may have been mislead, or even just don't know, I know people who live in inner cities in several states across America. I do not know not even one family where grandfathers, fathers, and sons never worked. Paul Ryan, inner city not working is discrimination, not generational. Paul is from Janesville Wisconsin. Maybe men there who have never worked, or never held a steady job is generational.

Paul Ryan crawfished and then said when he said inner city men who generationally never worked, he was not referring to Black men. Based on census 2012 numbers, Paul Ryan has lots of experience with poor people. In his hometown of Janesville, a city of slightly less than 70,000 people, unemployment is at 9.6%. With Blacks being at 2.6% in Janesville, I guess based on Ryans calculations, more than Blacks don't know nothing about working [for generations]. Well I decided to find some different definitions for inner city. Here's one definition, a quote from answers.com: What is inner city? The usually older, central part of a city, especially when characterized by crowded neighborhoods in which low-income, often minority groups predominate.

Paul Ryan is not a learned man, for if he was, he would know better than to make a general statement about inner city residents that he cannot prove. I would feel places of business in Janevilles have not been resourceful in people coming to know and appreciate the races. Ryan is too young a man to be talking language from generations ago. When people work together, they come to know and appreciate differences and become aware,  likes outweight differences. Paul click here and learn. When we learn better we are informed and better prepared to do better.
