I Browse: Yes, I understand that blacks are convicted at a much larger rate than other races



Interesting choice of words.

Are you implying that these blacks are in fact being convicted for crimes that were committed by non-blacks, or for crimes that were never committed at all?


I Browse: So your argument is that if we draw attention to black crime statistics (especially in news articles, but also in society at large) we can take that information and use it to correct the behavior...?



As I said above, you can't begin to "fix" a problem until you acknowledge that it exists, and the epidemic of black criminality in the US is real, like it or not.

Also as I said above, the root of the problem lies not in race, but in black culture, where criminality and other forms of antisocial behavior have all too often become seen as acceptable among the peer groups.

I have written at length on this topic in other threads (and elsewhere), tracing the roots of this climate where criminality is tolerated to the Civil Rights era and especially Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" programs and those that followed.

These do-gooder feel-good programs seemed like a great idea at the time, but they were cultural poison, effectively setting the stage for the problems we are witnessing today.

I am up against a deadline, and haven't time to rehash it at the moment - but I'll leave you with a thought that might give you an idea:

Did the people who put these signs up HATE bears? Did they want to see them starve?

Or might there have been some other reason?

Just for sh*ts and giggles, let's have a sarcasm-free discussion about this. If the media made it a point to racially identify everyone in a news article (particularly articles about crime), what do you think the benefit would be?



FBI Crime Statistics - 2010

Just for sh*ts and giggles, click on the above link and browse around a biatcheck out every major crime category - murder, robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, arson, larceny, auto theft, etc, and note the percentage of these crimes committed by blacks, bearing in mind that blacks make up less than 13% of the US population.

On those same pages, compare the percentages of these committed by "whites", Asians, Native Americans, and Hispanics (oh wait, you can't look at the stats for Hispanics because the FBI counts them as WHITES. Hmmm).

You'll soon discover that blacks commit a vastly disproportionate number of crimes as opposed to other groups - often twice as many crimes as one might expect given their representative population.

Obviously, committing more crimes results in high incarceration rates.

From Wikipedia:

upload.wikimedia.org

As you can see, black males are incarcerated at over twice the rate of Hispanic males, and FIVE TIMES the rate of non-Hispanic white males.

This means that there are many, MANY black children who are growing up in homes with no father, and no financial support from said father. Thus it becomes a self-perpetuating problem, and a huge burden on society at large.

The racially sensitive media (and other politically correct institutions) refuse to recognize the problem of black crime in the US for fear of being labeled racist. Indeed, the black community itself is VERY sensitive WRT the topic, and black "leaders" are quick to attack anyone who dares broach the taboo topic.

YOUR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS NOT HELPING.

If you refuse to recognize that there IS a problem, there is little hope of fixing it, is there? And who stands to suffer the most as up to 1/3 of adult black makes are either in prison, on parole or probation at any given time???

THE BLACK COMMUNITY.

And no, you can't blame poverty, because poor non-Hispanic whites outnumber poor blacks at a rate of more than 2 to 1 - not by percentage, but in raw numbers.

Do the math.

By ignoring the epidemic of black crime - spawned, nurtured and encouraged by BLACK CULTURE in the US, we perpetuate the problem.

If you had a big, ugly patch of melanoma on your forehead, would your "friends" be doing YOU any favors by pretending that it isn't there?

Remember, the victims of these crimes are not just those that are murdered, robbed, assaulted, etc., it is US society at large, and the black community in particular.

why is it impossible for the media to report the truth?
They are not 'teenagers' or 'youths', they are NEGROES and they are doing this all over America

Looked at the video very carefully and all of the teens that came in were black. Its possible to assume that the white people in the store came in with the mob right before the video started, but that's assuming...

Why is it non PC these days to simply state facts... "black looters" no no change that to "teens".

Without any additional racial tones why is simply stating the fact, racist.

"Quit ignoring" is a less inflammatory way to say "draw attention to".

groppet: All it takes is them to catch one kid and the rest will go down. It happend at the 7-11 here last year. Took them a little while but they did manage to catch them all.


This could quickly become untenable though. With large groups it's very intimidating and difficult to stop, and people are more of the mentality that they can get away if they keep the others closer to the authorities than they are--there's 30 of us and 1 store manager, only 1 or 2 people are gonna be physically detained.

The solution is to start physically beating these people and taking your shiat back. I can rock-in-a-sock plenty of kids right quick, so the threat of violence isn't easy to avoid. Now they've gotta be scared coming in, so they gotta up the ante and start playing high stakes with guns and wild theatrics like we like to imagine old-time Texas bandit gangs that never existed. Trust me, you don't do that to rob a convenience store; we're talking jewel heists here. Thus as a convenience store or clothing merchant, this situation should appeal to you. Obviously anyone willing to take a mob to rob a jewelry store is going to do so anyway, so this shouldn't offend the jewelry store owners.

Violence: The solution.

Things were bad when teens developed knob turning techniques. Now that they can unlock doors from the inside we're doomed. Soon they'll learn to scale stopped escalators, undo stanchions and hop over guard rails.
