Did it ever occur to you that the reason blacks have more interaction with police is that they DISPROPORTIONATLY commit more of the crime? It should because it is true

Thats technically not true what they found is education level is directly proportional to crime. In neighborhoods where people drop out of high school tend to have more violent crime. Makes sense to if these kids cant make money legally that only leaves one option selling drugs. And in that world violence will always win.

Its not that blacks are more violent it is that they don't receive education to prepare them for the real world. Education in inner cities is usually the first thing to be cut from school budgets. Schools tend to spend more money in affluent areas to make all those voters happy. Lets create a magnet school so spoiled kids can learn about art instead of spending that money on teachers in inner city schools.

The biggest mistake made was creating slums. You take your poorest people provide them housing put a huge fence around it and hope they stay in their neighberhood. To make it worse you limit bus times to the area and make it so even taxis dont want to enter. For decades we have effectively created prisons in the middle of our cities.

Now after dacades of welfare because businesses left the area we created a whole class of people that cannot live anywhere else.

If mayors were serious about solving problems first thing is get rid of public housing. Should go to a voucher program and get these people into normal housing.

No it factually is true, Blacks make up 13% of the population yet commit almost 27% of the crime , yet whites make up almost 77% of the population and commit about 70% of the crime according to FBI crime stats last year. So whites commit less than a 1:1 ratio of the crime when looking at percentage of population to crime committed while blacks are at more than a 2:1 ration, So they Dispoportionatly

White privilege in action.

Funny people were asking to define it and give examples of it a week ago or so and then this happens. This is a shining example -- expecting to be treated better than others based on being white.

There is no doubt that black people commit crimes but do they commit more crimes? Does the justice system treat them fairly and this goes for all minorities.

Institutionalized racism is a real thing.

Study: black people are 7 times more likely than white people to be wrongly convicted of murder




Race may be the deciding factor in whether you’re deemed innocent in a court of law.

That’s the takeaway from a study for the National Registry of Exonerations, published on Tuesday. Researchers Samuel Gross, Maurice Possley, and Klara Stephens analyzed years of exoneration data, looking at how race may influence whether someone is wrongfully convicted — and later cleared — of a crime they didn’t commit.

“African Americans are only 13% of the American population but a majority of innocent defendants wrongfully convicted of crimes and later exonerated,” the researchers write. “They constitute 47% of the 1,900 exonerations listed in the National Registry of Exonerations (as of October 2016), and the great majority of more than 1,800 additional innocent defendants who were framed and convicted of crimes in 15 large-scale police scandals and later cleared in ‘group exonerations.’”


Criminal Justice For An Inclusive Society




The bias that drives these numbers, critics like Jerome Miller claim, does not appear at the sentencing hearing, but is built up as well through the accumulation of arrests and minor sentences to which black Americans are subject from a young age for conduct that would not lead to an arrest of a white adolescent.

Overt discrimination plays on the availability of discretion. The research compared sentences of white and black defendants convicted of felony charges throughout New York State between 1990 and 1992, and it found that when the crime and the defendant’s prior record were the same, the black defendants were sentenced to jail and prison more frequently than white defendants.

"I think it is very easy for that very subtle, subliminal racism to creep in, and when the defendant comes into court you just disregard him and dehumanize him. The subliminal racism-–and it is subliminal–that kind of racism is there when the judge thinks of the black defendant as part of the stereotype of this dangerous mass out there waiting to take over our schools and our streets and break into our homes

Judge McKee knows that this kind of overt racism occurs with black judges, like himself, as well as with white judges.

Covert bias is more problematic. It would be one thing if those harsher penalties had been shown to deter or prevent crime; but no such evidence is offered. Instead, the harsher sentences reflect a chilling eagerness to exclude offenders for life from civil society, even in early adolescence, despite its enormous financial cost. Would these same policies be pursued if the people being incarcerated were overwhelmingly white?

I heard about this and reviewed the video and then slept on this and the following can be stated:

The facts are this: The man is going to the airport for a flight, gets there, and is late, the airplane has left the area. The man is late, and then gets abusive and violent at the desk, causing the staff to call security/police. The man does not calm down and continues to vent and rage, where he is ignoring the police and then gets taken down. In that he states he is being treated like a black person and that the police were too rough, even though he does not comply and keeps fighting.

There are 2 things that can be stated here. The first one, everyone is stating, the man is an idiot. He seems to think that he is above everyone, the world revolves around him and ultimately maybe this will be a wake up call for him and bring him back to earth.

The second point and this one has a bit of an impact. This man, by his statement, is admitting that he knows that the police are far harder and rougher on one segment of the population. He views their treatment as wrong and not justice, but a means to systematically keep them separated from the rest of society. And as sad as it is, he probably does nothing to stop such, rather he chooses to ignore it, until it affects him personally.

How many white morons need to get together for white privilege to qualify for you?

I can't believe you even said that.


P.S. And why do you assume that I don't think he's a moron for thinking white privilege will work for him. I do think he's a moron but this is also a good example of white privilege.

In proportion to their makeup of the population , YES, they do commit more crimes. But people like you only want to use facts when it suits you but ignore them when they don't.

White privilege is not a thing, so white people living in poverty are still privileged in your mind? I have not been given # in my life, I worked my butt off and work through more adversity than I have time to go into on here. So drop the white privilege crap with me.

That's not at all an accurate picture of what's going on.

The reason that inner city schools tend to have less is because there is less parental involvement in education. Yes, parents have less money, so the local tax base is less, but look at areas with poor tax bases and high parental involvement. The schools don't have the bells and whistles, but the kids still do learn. Why? The parents find ways to make sure their kids get as much as they can from what is there. It isn't just the schools, but it goes into the home.

Go back the current issues with the top, elite high schools in New York City. The majority of students in those schools are Asian across the board, and in some of those schools, the majority of students qualify for free or reduced school lunch meaning they are not from affluent families.

All the students who make it into those schools have to pass one test, and the high schools make it well-known what kids will have to know to pass those tests and be able to get admitted *to any student* anywhere in the city.

What separates poor Asian students from poor African American or poor Latino students then isn't the schools they are in as much as it is the culture toward education. Poor Asian kids are far more likely to have family environments where the parents are going to push their kids to study those materials, are more likely to organize study groups and wring every drop of expertise they can out of any parent in the community who might be able to help all the kids, etc. How many poor African American and Latino kids have communities who are going to go that extra mile for their educations?

Did you know that often the study groups organized by the Asian communities are open to anyone, including kids of other ethnic groups?

So lets go back to see why those kids don't excel. It's less to do with the schools although they aren't great and at least as much to do with the community/cultural attitudes toward school and education. In some things, you get out what you put in.

What Exactly Is White Privilege? Here Are 7 Examples




White privilege is the set of advantages white people in a society typically experience that are not experienced by people of other races.

1. Their Race Is All Over the School Curriculum
2. Their Race Is Well Represented Throughout the Media
3. Their Intelligence and Accomplishments Aren’t Questioned
4. Authority Figures Share the Same Skin Tone as Them
5. They Don’t Live in Fear of the Police Gunning Them Down
6. They Aren’t Expected to Represent Their Entire Race
7. They Don’t Need to Worry About Race



White privilege doesn’t mean you’ve never had to struggle

White privilege doesn’t mean you’ve never had to struggle, it just means there are a lot of things you’ve never had to think twice about that other people have to think about every day. It also means you’ve never had to wonder if you’ve been held back or passed over or treated differently because of your skin color, race, gender, or sexual orientation, of things fundamental to who you are as a person.

Take all those things you quoted, travel to Nigeria, and ask the people there if they have black privilege.

Take all those things you quoted, travel to China (or Japan), and ask the people there if they have Asian privilege.

Take all those things you quoted, travel to Argentina, and ask the people there if they have Latino/a privilege.

Really what you're whining about is being a minority in the country. It has nothing to do with privilege. Being a majority gives you no "privilege" it just means there are more people with your skin tone or ethnicity running around.

We aren't in those countries are we? We are also not talking about those countries.

White privilege exists no matter how much you deny it.

Education system based on white history. More likely to not get convicted for a crime that would result in jail time for minority.

It does not mean that white people do not suffer hardships, have to work hard or that white people are racist, it just means that North American society is easier for them.

1. Their Race Is All Over the School Curriculum( That is the history of this country and you can't change that no matter how hard you try)

2. Their Race Is Well Represented Throughout the Media ( I see a LOT of black athletes, news talking heads, actors, musicians, you name it) so that point falls on its face

3. Their Intelligence and Accomplishments Aren’t Questioned ( plenty of white people's intelligence and accomplishments are questioned, like this doctor at the airport, and any conservative that doesn't bow to the liberal agenda) so again dead point

4. Authority Figures Share the Same Skin Tone as Them ( What about most of these cities with a "Race problem" Black city councils, black mayors, black police chiefs) So another dead point

5. They Don’t Live in Fear of the Police Gunning Them Down ( i have already argued this one, cops are not just randomly shooting innocent black men, don't commit crimes then fight with, attempt to take away guns from, or not follow the orders of a cop)

6. They Aren’t Expected to Represent Their Entire Race ( No One is, your actions are yours alone and reflect who you are and what you do, that chip is on your shoulder if you think you represent an entire race no one is that important... NO ONE)

7. They Don’t Need to Worry About Race ( Again you won't need to worry about race, let your actions speak for you, As MLK said be judged on the content of your character, not the color of your skin, but this new civil rights movements wants to go back to being judged by the color of their skin.. it is sad really)
