American Blacks on average commit more crime (Source 1), and these numbers come from the proportion of offenders identified by victims as black (so it can't be due to police racism). To quote my source: "The proportion of black suspects arrested by the police tends to match closely the proportion of offenders identified as black by victims in the National Crime Victimization Survey." As such, any argument that police arrest more blacks because of racism falls on it's face.

Note, I believe that the reason that black people commit more crime on average than other races is because of poverty, single parenthood and culture, not due to an inherent racial drive towards crime.

Which direction to you believe the causal arrow goes in the correlation between crime, poverty, single parenthood, and culture?

Why do you believe a correlation is the same thing as a causation?

You write such stupid things. Why are Jews so stupid? Please clarify.

Oh it definitely goes both ways, and there are many mediating factors too. It's all deeply inter-related in a downward spiral. For example, diet impacts massively on intelligence which impacts on poverty which impacts on diet again. Lower intelligence is related to more criminality and poverty simultaneously and both crime and poverty are related to single parenthood which is related back to poverty and crime (for the child) etc. I think all the above are related to each other in both directions and through co-variables too, you?

Hello A:

Yeah, I missed it..

For the most part, I don't believe individual cops are racist..

I do believe, however, that racism is endemic in most police departments.. That can be corrected with training.. Will it change and/or effect individual cops? No, but systemic racism is NOT about individuals.. It's about the department..

Seems to me, that even an absolutely NON racist cop would approach a black driver differently than a white one.. Especially, if it was late at night, in a white neighborhood, and a young black man driving with a few of his friends..

If he DOES do that, is it racist, or is it common sense? Or is it racism disguised as common sense?? Do you think he was TRAINED to respond that way??? I'll bet NOT. So, he/the department CAN be trained NOT to do it.

That probably didn't clear up much, did it?

Every group has racists in it. Libs want a warped utopia where certain groups never get targeted and other groups, well...fuck em.

Isn't it racist to teach people of color not to be racist? Because in some districts there are a lot of them in the force.
