It has become blatantly obvious that the majority of black people are extremely racist.

This is just the murder stats.



Yes it is, isn't it!!!

So tell me how that is pertinent to people saying "crime" & me reiterating the word "crime"...


No one said "murder"...

If they had I wouldn't have shared the "crime" statistics.



Way to embarrass someone!


There are few issues. First, simply saying 70% of crime is committed by white people doesn't tell us anything because crime is not defined. Are you talking speeding tickets or murder? theft or rape? What is important is the type of crimes committed. Logically, it stands to reason that white people do commit more crimes in total since they are the majority of the population. However, pointing out whites commit more shoplifting is not that relevant to why cops may be more skittish around young black males which is really the topic of conversation. Violent crime stats like the murder stats I posted tell a more complete picture as you can clearly see that blacks are significantly more likely to be engaged in violent crime.

Here is the actual source data for what you quoted with arrests broken out by race. As you can see, in total the arrest kind of mirror population, but if you dig deeper, you see that blacks are significantly over represented in the violent crime columns and not so much in the more numerous crime columns like property crimes, drug abuse, DUIs, etc.

Let me know if you want me to continue this statistical beat down.

I agree, the most unhealthy thing i've heard during this type of discussion is that black people can't be racist

What is it these individuals hope to accomplish? They contribute to nothing but the hijacking of a legitimate cause by using racism. Legitimate grievances regarding police misconduct are being sidelined in favor of people trying to make the whole issue into a racial one.

White cops should not be policing black neighborhoods.


(not directed towards you poster, im sure you can see what im trying to point out)

Why should skin color matter?


.....ok am I the only one consistently seeing racist crap coming out of people who claim that other people are being racist?

This is all starting to get pretty Saturday Night Live-esque its such a parody of itself.......

Exactly.

The police are abusing all of us, but the media is doing an excellent job of painting it as a race issue--when in reality it's a tyranny issue.

Black folks can be just as racist at white folks. There are these pseudo intellectual blacks that claim you need power to be racist. The logic being that racism requires oppression.

Too bad that some will use a sound byte or some protesters who might not really be protesters or might not really be aligned with the original call of protesters with a cause, the one against unjust and disproportionate focus by police on certain groups, not just black, but in the case of Ferguson and Staten Island incidents, the victims happened to be black.

Are you one of those people that look for any banner or representative to make all protesters and protests look illegitimate or worse give them a black eye, no pun, then go and build a monolithic statement like using one of the twitter feeds to brand them or put them into your box.

I can, however, find one thing that might work against their method and point though, there are so many protesters that are not just black, on the first day of the police shootings in NYC, CNN showed a crowd of protesters, very few of them were black, but this is more of the exception than the rule though.

So if you really want a response to your original post on defining race baiting, if you aren't what responses are you attempting to illicit by the thread? your injected tone and feelings when the whole point of the protest involves focusing on race, the black protesters, the white or other patrons at the eateries, how can it not be race baiting, especially when this protest is a very, very small group in comparison to the many that stayed on message.

Of course, only the objective minded might be able to respond or handle something like this with some clarity, but for the average Joe, they won't see anything else except a hook, line and sinker with a big black worm on it, right? so again if what you post is not race baiting, what is it? do you have an actual point that would not attempt to place all protesters into the same box, go find some footage of protesters on point and presenting their views, did you do that? if so then I might retract my feelings of whether or not you are race baiting, perpetuating some very unorthodox or rude ways to get a a point across, but even so, is there etiquette or rule that might somehow make these protesters out of bounds because that's the way they feel ? yes it was less tactful, but this should not diminish any of the real points established after deaths occurred and no trials were deemed necessary, but after the fact many inconsistencies were found, actually one that I myself really had to keep going back to.

The story about Mike Brown is there for anyone to investigate, I really felt that the store incident was bad, but only recently I found high resolution of the sandals that Mike Brown had on in the store, but then there appeared to be some yellow sneakers on his body, there are also many inconsistencies smacking of coverups, or not so true series of events given not by the so called lying witnesses but by some very clever law enforcement colluding with police, the same story that has been happening for years and years, "training day" situations in real life.

To avoid this discussion of profiling or at least try to solve some of the issue. I'm sure blacks from the neighborhood know the area and the people far more than someone whos not from that neighborhood.

Why do I sound racist recommending more african americans join their local police force?

I've taken stats before BUDDY, you and her are both trolls, which got called out earlier in thread demanding a claim but not taking the time to pull the research herself in the reply. That is trolling. Same with you.

What are you trying to claim there is a debate of correlation vs causation with the percentage of black people who end up in jail vs the the percentage of white who end up in jail. They are just numbers, there is no causation statement I am making, it's simple math.

# of black people in US divided by the # of black people in jail. The answer is the percentage of the black population who ends up in jail. It's not a difficult concept. It's not even a statistic, it's more like inventory.

X amount of the free black population ends up in jail, which happens to be more the the X amount of the free white population that ends up in jail.

While people say the CAUSE for this is racism, you have another cause? Or it's just random? Haha that is just being a troll and not putting any thought into it.

so you don't believe white police officesr disproportionately policing black neighborhoods isn't part of the issue?

blacks are significantly more likely to be engaged in violent crime.


In the murder category certainly...


In rape, aggravated assault, other assaults, violent crimes, sex offences, weapons carrying & offences against the family & children White people top the charts...


So if a cop is to feel "skittish" around someone based on colour, which they shouldn't, but you implied they are...
Then it should be White people.

I don't agree with that obviously, I'm basing that on your assessment of the situation.



Let me know if you want me to continue this statistical beat down.


If only that were the case...

However no I'd actually prefer that this thread reverted back to a discussion about a Peaceful (albeit dumb) protest in a New York Restaurant.


Thanks for the discussion.

"Black brunch"
Why didn't the organizers just shorten it to "Blunch"?

Catchy.

Blunch Mob.
See?


I just googled blunch mob and my post was the only thing to come up.
These "protesters" really missed out.

In response, the white community should have whinner (pronounced winner) in predominantly black restaurants in protest.

Maybe Native Amereakfast for those of us who are indigenous...

I get that they are just trying to get people to be aware of their plight. But they need to go about it the right way. Yelling in my ear while I'm having lunch with my family is not going to do anything but piss me off.
Show me you have a point and explain why. Don't yell at me.

Were you actually in the restaurant or did you just make that up?

Well I did a little research of a few of the names they were read aloud by protesters.

Alonzo Ashley claimed he was a lion while at the zoo and attacked a zoo security guard. The cops responded and he fought them. They tasered him and he later died as a result of medical issues.

Jimmell Cannon pointed a replica BB gun at officers. He did not die.

Kenneth Harding was wanted for questioning in a murder of a woman. Police saw him and he ran jumping a public transportation pay point. Police caught up to him and he produced a .380 caliber pistol and shot at them. The police returned fire.

Raheim Brown attacked an officer with a screwdriver. He was shot dead.

Ervin Jefferson was killed by a security guard not a police officer.

Jersey Green was high on crack and jumping on random vehicles. The police responded and he jumped on their vehicle. A struggle ensued and they tasered him. The probes landed in his side and thigh. He later died of excited delirium.

Johnnie Kamahi Warren was intoxicated and got into a bar fight. Employees called the police. Upon their arrival he fought with them and was tasered. He later died of exicted delirium. An autopsy showed hard drugs in his system.

Full disclosure. I stopped researching cases at around the one minute mark of the video Kali posted. I am not saying that there were no names read that were not true victims.

I stopped because I felt that I was waisting my time trying to find these so called "innocent" victims of "black genocide at the hands of police"

Again not saying there have been no victims because their obviously have. I am only referencing the names in the video.

Genocide my A**
