I dont have an immediate answer. I have some thoughts but wont share them here. Now answer my question.You aren’t answering the question. You said systemic racism does not exist - if that’s the case then why are black people getting arrested 400% more for the same level of criminal activity?
It’s not relevant to the topic.
It couldn't possibly be that a disproportionate number of the fathers are in prison due to the unequal enforcement of a law that shouldn't even exist.Next ask him if he can possibly see how this may impact the number fatherless households in the black community since that is, apparently, the root cause since systemic racism doesn't exist because Morgan Freeman said so.
so lets back up for minute! You do realize that when Black on Black crime is brought up it usually is NOT brought up to discuss?? It is brought up for other reasons, such as to change the subject or to try to imply that Black people are worse than white people....What did I say that was racist?
He's the classic "not racist just says things a racist says."so lets back up for minute! You do realize that when Black on Black crime is brought up it usually is NOT brought up to discuss?? It is brought up for other reasons, such as to change the subject or to try to imply that Black people are worse than white people....
Whenever black people try to talk about police brutality, it is inevitable that a white person will come in and say, “But what about black-on-black crime?” — as if members of a community killing each other negates the fact that police officers are killing unarmed members of the communities they’re paid to serve and protect. One has nothing to do with the other.Whenever black people try to talk about police brutality, it is inevitable that a white person will come in and say, “What about black on black crime?"www.scarymommy.com
Let me say that again for the cheap seats. POLICE BRUTALITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH “BLACK-ON-BLACK CRIME.”
In fact I contend that Black on Black crime is a myth perpetrated by white people!
Jesus. Rush to judgement much?Well, if you have some thoughts but won't share them here, the next question is WHY NOT?
Afraid of expressing your innermost thoughts on this subject will expose your racist soul?
And as to the third sentence, get fucked. If you cannot answer simple questions posed to you but instead choose to hide behind whatever the hell you said....."I can't answer that because it'd expose me as a racist".....then you have no weight to demand anyone answer a fucking thing you ask.
Grow a set, man up, and express what you think.....or are you just that much of a closet racist that you're afraid of being outed as such?
I suggest you all watch this video which is a compilation of many news sources and interviews with some of the most prominent black men in our country. Systemic racism is a myth. Keep in mind while watching it, as Obama is quoted in this segment, Obama had some very wise words about fatherhood.
I dunno do you have any thoughts about why the offending rate among black on black homicide is eight times higher than white on white?
Why is it assumed this is the cause of today's differences? Go look at Japan and Germany from WWII vs. present. Not enough time to change? Go look how Jews persevered every time they dealt with adversity. Go look how Asians do better than whites in the "white supremacy" system. Or for that matter, explain why the black population should be equal in every aspect when Jews and Asians punch well above the white average income.The problem is most of these facts aren’t taught. I just recently learned about the Black Wallstreet Massacre in Tulsa (before it was referenced in Watchmen).
Yes, but adjust for characteristics like IQ. it's weaker than it looks because there is a lot of assortative mating going on.In general a family’s wealth is a strong indicator of whether you will be wealthy, middle class or poor.
I'm glad you had enough sense to post the median value rather than the mean. ~$170K is not a lot for what they accounted for. A person enlisted in the military from 2000 and retiring at 38 in 2020 has a ~$900K present value just from the pension.So why do black families have so little wealth?
So if it was so racist, why did so many liberal pols and voters support it, including the black leadership? If someone supported criminalizing drugs like marijuana, you would think disproportionate treatment wouldn't really matter, since it's logical to think that they wouldn't have criminalized it otherwise if they thought criminalizing does more harm. We wouldn't say we need to release some of the black rapists or murderers to balance out the percentages if there was a disproportionate amount of black offenders.Do you have any thoughts about why police arrest black people for marijuana possession 400% more than white people despite both groups offending at similar rates?
Systemic racism is likely part of it. But they tend to sell drugs on the streets in black communities, while they tend to be sold in doors in white communities. Street dealing is a magnet for law enforcement. It's much easier to catch.It’s not relevant to the topic.
I hope the fact that you are unable to think of a reason why marijuana laws are enforced so disproportionately will cause you to rethink your statement that systemic racism doesn’t exist. Of course it exists, as seen there.

I thought she took her time! There is no need to rush to judgement when it concerns something you say! Why is that?Jesus. Rush to judgement much?
