not saying it is fair but stereotypes are often correct. they exist for a reason
profiling, well i think that works too.

certain people do fit certain profiles.

the fbi has been profiling for years. so have the police.

cops get called to a crime scene. lady is found beaten, raped, and killed. ligature marks and such.
the profile starts.
white male. aged 30-50
it is what it is. profiling works.

you come across that crime scene and you are not going to waste your time looking for a 75 year old woman

"Of the 547 people found by the Guardian to have been killed by law enforcement so far this year, 49.7% were white, 28.3% were black and 15.5% were Hispanic/Latino. According to US census data, 62.6% of the population is white, 13.2% is black and 17.1% is Hispanic/Latino."


Now, given that 62% of US is white and 13% is black...
Well, you can do the maths.


That's disproportionate.



Your whole blacklivesmatter seems to say that blacks being killed is disproportionate... Just stop bud...



Jalapeno!





Oh I'm sorry, shall I stop posting facts that you claimed to be doing earlier, sourceless...
Shall I not challenge your blatantly specious argument...

No dice.

You stated it was not stolen... So tell me, logically, how a kid in school was able to afford to buy 20+ pieces of gold? Must be some special woman huh? I am not arguing with you anymore. Your are silly.

Why? Could it be because blacks commit more violent crimes?

Even though they make up only 13% of the population, blacks commit more than half the homicides.

At some point we must abandon the discussion of hashtags and return to the brute facts in order to retain any semblance of reality. Choosing between hashtags is the last of our worries.

This is the real answer here. But it is not PC to state it.

The difference is that cops don't stop, harass, berate and incite every white man 30-50 they come across because there may have just been a rape.

Never mind maths and facts are not wanted.


How many white people must be killed to make things right?

Because the average white blue collar person does not commit crimes like these in record numbers.

Maybe give the 4th & 6th amendments back to those people disproportionately shot by law enforcement instead.

The fallacy, and racism, is the implication that it is their blackness that makes them commit violent crimes. Are you willing to make that argument?

How would you know that without profiling them based on demographic alone first?

This reminds me of the show baitcar.... If they parked a car in a white neighborhood...... What a waste of police resources.. It would just sit there..Noone is going to steal it! They park it in the ghetto, it is gone in 60 seconds, profiling works. Statistics are what they are... Facts are facts.

Both Hashtags are stupid, as one is simply poking the other and the original one is divisive and is too self centered to fix the problem.

Police corruption and the corrupt government practices that allow for it is the problem. Bitching about crimes against black people by police alone will not fix this problem.

Period, end of story.

United we stand divided we fall.

ok. and what point are you trying to make?
the point i was trying to make(pretty sure i made it) is profiling works.
the police and the feds have been using it for years.

thats just how it is.

if they crime scene is a drive by shooting theyre probably going to look for young black males
if the crime is a rape/murder theyre probably going to look for a 30-40 something white male

do you think i am wrong in saying that?

i have a question for all the PC people.

if you were on your own at say 1am would you be more comfortable/at ease in lets say bed stuy brooklyn or a west village/park avenue type neighborhood?

what is your answer and why?

just curious

How do we know if the police aren't stopping them on a regular basis? They could just be getting away with who knows what...

I grew up in poor multi-cultural areas so I'm at home in both.

PC has nothing to do with this.
