    We should also keep in mind that blacks are 7x more likely to commit murder than whites.

      From 2001 statistics. How many blacks commit crimes? ” The answer is 3% according to statistical analysis done by Tim Wise. The article is entitled “Race, Crime and Statistical Malpractice: How the Right Manipulates White Fear With Bogus Data.”
      How many whites commit crimes? The same 3%.

        I doubt very much that good old “Joker” Davis would be interested in facts or any article(s) debunking his own prejudices.

        See GHETTOSIDE by Jill Leovy. Black on Black homicide and “almocide” (maimed from gunshot) is epidemic–historically and currently. Most all of it is NEVER published because the media is institutionally insensitive.

        This is the profit motive rearing its demon head in the media market and that is combined with institutional racism whereby Blacks are victimized in insidious ways that without tragedy to expose the putrid underlying causal factors we would be left making inherently inaccurate summations.

        Mike Brown was wrong and he died for it but the anger that welled up inside him was representative of his community which explains the destruction of a totally dis-enfranchised people.

        Ferguson is an onion with many layers that are now coming off one layer at a time. That’s good

          Mike Brown was never legally CONVICTED of “being wrong and dying from it.” Rather, he was silenced so that there would be no testimony to convict his killer. He never got a trial, and the cop who shot him was deemed not guilty without a real trial, because of the media “trial” which “convicted” his victim.

          And in any case, the crimes he is ALLEGED (never proved) to have committed do not carry anywhere NEAR a death penalty.

            My point is the kind and level of physical aggression was the wrong way to respond and the horrible outcome–for me- shows his action was his undoing.

            Given the modus operandi of the Ferguson PD, we now know that his filled up with anger moral anger and I can approve of it.

      That is not true, in fact, instead of being PC, it is an outright lie. I have no idea where you got that ridiculous information, but I can guess.

      More African Americans and people of darker skin color than Caucasians are in prison, which doesn’t mean they are more likely to commit crimes. It’s more accurate to say that the Ferguson formula is practiced to some degree all over the country, as demonstrated by the recent DOJ study which merely scratched the surface of this ugly phenomenon.

      And you should also be aware of the fact that African Americans are more likely to be charged with things which whites routinely get away with – that’s a perfect example of white privilege and politics!

        Sure it does. You’re just not paying attention.

        • Natalie Jarnstedt

          I have no idea what you mean by “Sure it does” – WHAT does?

          BTW, if you can do simple math, you will understand that Caucasian crimes at 3% are greater than 3% committed by African Americans (according to statistics posted by johninPCFL).

  • I suspect that a more accurate generalization about murder in these Untied States of Hysteria is that 99% of cops will not even be indicted after killing blacks, whites, hispanics, asians, or Tralfamadorians. That’s just the way it is. You want to stop murder? Take the guns away from idiots and cops, or vice versa. And somebody please do a Hoffa on Wayne LaPierre.
