it's very hard for leftists to put 2 and 2 together
unless its rolling a weed cig, that they can do easily
I used to watch the Young Turks
I stopped because they disgusted me
they complain and complain and refuse to look at other angles or facts
i remember the time i stopped when they were milking Trevon Martin
I was like ok you are right, there are violent issues in the usa, but its not one sided, and no you cant milk the death of others nor reshape facts
the person who killed him wasnt even white, and the teen was a shite trouble maker also, its was a powder keg situation, but no for leftists facts and nuance are insults
Same for that asshole teen who made a fake bomb and took it to school to troll, TYT turks made him a hero, so did Obama and the rest
Ana Kasperian and Cenk Yuger need to be offended and nag like old women nagging at the young generation at the bakery over trivial things
i thought they were open minded, but after closer inspection they are not
especially when they hate individual rights and are obsessed with group mentality and shaming others, even any leftist who disagreed with them on any of their new religious mantras, one sec their buddy, another he is now a nazi. Dave Rubin the calm gay atheist jew ex-TYT is now a nazi..
the black americans have self inflicted problems in the usa, and they inflict dis-proportionally this unto others with crime waves
same for many issues, including lgbt+, you cant make up genders like kids make up imaginary games
i supported Obama on his first election, then i regretted it
i supported and still support gay marriage, its a given right
but i dont and wont support magical genders, i wont support re-writing history that i dont like, i wont support mob mentality, nor affermative action instead of equality of opportunity, and no way in hell i will be a sexist pig who claims white men are responsible for a 'horrible patriarchy' that built the civilized west like third wave feminists do
only when leftists acknowledge these and other issues can a useful discussion be made on how to help ourselves and others around us who are suffering also
a bit of realism is needed to improve this world
i cant talk to a delusional feminist blonde who thinks islam is her ideological ally
now, due to social media, the left has the persona of a proud automated lynch mob, get them excited and give them a few nice pitchforks and they will happily poke the eyes out of some old grandpa in a farm somewhere for being a patriarchal tyrant
ideologically possessed is an understatement at this point
all this drama over nothing in the USA while Hong Kong is being taken over by communist china
you cannot take the left seriously
but they sure know how to swing the pendulum to the left so violently that the next right wing swing will cause a crash with them that is deadly
for centrists which they attacked us early on to remove us from the discussion, i have no skin in the game
i prefer to sit back and protect myself, the coming fight the left started but i have no interest in them clashing with the right
these idiots are destroying all the stability we current enjoy or enjoyed
You write a full page to express your personal sorrows to justify where your racism and bigotry came from. The more you explain the more you raise questions about yourself as if you and your problems are topics.all arabs have an inferiority complex
What does competence have to do with crime and police brutality? I know you’re much more discerning than this, there is a more sophisticated way of assessing why crime occurs than simply someone’s competence. People can still exert bad behavior even when there aren’t structural impediments to them living a good life. At least one source attempts to give us some explanation to the phenomenon using multiple methods and lenses. The determinative factor is actually which crimes are policed and which aren’t. Behavior alone is a grossly inadequate framework for understanding crime. There’s almost the assumption built into this line of argumentation that some people innately have intelligent characteristics and others lack as much, simply by their biological nature or genetic composition.ok, let me tell you something before we proceed further, the average syllable count in your words does not have much bearing on reality. the truth remains that no matter how you look at it, our culture, our civilization and the progress we made as human beings, is based on established hierarchies of competence. it might very well happen that you find incompetent people in some posts, however that is not a valid reason to demolish or negate the hierarchy of merit principle, to the contrary it should rather present an additional incentive to emphasizes that any post should be given to the most competent at handling it.
admission to colleges and universities should not be based on the color of your skin, but rather on how well you do in the SAT exams, once you break that simple norm, you have allowed decay to filter into the institutions that issue the objective accreditation and validation of a person's abilities, and that's one of the ways social decay begins to seep into a society.
Sure, but we have to ask why we would excuse those corrupt officers for bad behavior. Again, I am not talking about individual cops and their merits. Please understand the essence of my argument is not limited to behavioral explanations.some officers are corrupt, some others are out of control. however we cannot claim that all officers are the same. blacks commit the highest number of crimes in the USA. can we say that all blacks are criminals? or is it that each individual, be it a cop or a black person, is strictly responsible and accountable of his own actions.
you are furthering identity politics to envelop the police? really? you want to put them all on the same boat and pass a collective judgment on them? what about the millions of positive cases that are not filmed and published in these videos?
Nope, they’re not very telling. In fact, pulling these numbers without providing proper context kills the point of providing statistics to being with. Crime and policing are not mutually inclusive, as shown by the higher number of overall crimes committed by whites, yet the lower preponderance of policing in middle and upper class, predominantly white communities.yes by all means, let's examine the numbers provided in the link you have shared.
percentage whites in the USA according to the 2010 census: 72%
percentage of blacks in the USA according to the 2010 census: 12.6%
total offenses: 7,710,900
by whites: 5,319,654 -> 69%
by blacks: 2,115,381 -> 27%
conclusion a black person is 2.27 times more likely to committing an offense than a white person.
murder and manslaughter: 8,957
by whites: 3,953-> 44%
by blacks: 4,778-> 53%
conclusion a black person is 6.9 times more likely to committing a murder than a white person.
by whites: 12,794-> 68%
by blacks: 5,376 -> 29%
conclusion a black person is 2.4 times more likely to committing rape than a white person.
these numbers are very telling. this is not to vilify anyone, but rather this is to present the severity of the problem. when you can correlate the race of a person to a 7 times higher proneness of committing murder, this indicates a real problem, and is not racism.
the data suggests that a black person is twice more likely to commit drug related crimes, so it is normal that the profiling would reflect these numbers. it is abnormal if it doesn't. this is not racism.
The chart doesn't say even part of it - you’ve provided a non-explanation. What’s more, your argument is revealing itself as one that seeks to implicitly crush the protestors for even daring to exert recalcitrant behavior. This is not friendly to the established principle of freedom of speech. Notwithstandingas to families being ripped apart, you do realize that in black neighborhoods, out of wedlock births, take a look at this chart and observe how the most successful by race are the ones who have preserved a strong family unit, which indicates that this is a cultural problem not simply a systematic one.
View attachment 19763
the nonmarital births rate chart says it all. people need to grow up in a healthy family. when the family is destroyed everything else follows. family values need to be reinstated within the black community, and the family should be promoted as the real line of defense. in other words, you can find a direct correlation between the collapse of a community to the promoted liberal notions of nontraditional sexual freedom.
LOL, nice deflection. I countered your anecdotal social media “evidence” with my own factual anecdotal evidence. Are you telling me I shouldn’t trust what I see in real life and only trust what I see on social media? Like I’ve said, the race aspect is the most visceral part of this, and, by attempting to counter their narrative with your own on race, you fell in their trap. I fully recognize that the issue not just one of race, which is why my discussion is one based around class/wealth/poverty.not sure what this has to do with anything. you know a few black people and they are nice? yes of course. why wouldn't they be? who is saying there are no black nice people or that black people are not nice in general? the point i am making is that those protesters in the streets in their majority are issuing a verdict on all white people and accusing them of all sorts of things, guilt by transitivity is the most idiotic and ridiculous notion, and it is also the most racist notion. quite frankly the only racist parties in these events are the people taking to the streets, it is not simply that they are racists, it is more like they believe they have the right to be racist, and that is when things can turn dangerous.
LOL again. I’m saying the conditions that allowed for Obama to be elected were favorable toward whites, and he advanced a system that didn’t threaten white interests, so your assertion that racism is over is incorrect because his election did not, in fact, could not, change the system. Why can’t I have this conversation? A Lebanese can’t talk about race?are you really saying obama was not black enough? what would constitute a "black" black president? my friend, this is not a conversation you should be having
Iranian police treats minorities in Iran way worse and it is a systematic, government policy unlike individual actions by police officers.If every four or five or ten years, a few hundred or a thousand protesters, instigated by foreign agents and misled and deceived, lose their lives; and if every year hundreds of Americans are killed by the police, whether they protest or not; then, what is the difference between Iran and the USA? At least in Iran we dont have instances of police racially or ethnically profiling certain groups of people and inflicting them with targeted killings. As a Muslim, as a Black person or as anyone not White and of Judeo-Christian background living in America is not all that rosy and can become messy within a second, if you meet the wrong set of cops or you mistakenly behave yourself in an unacceptable way.
That is the reason people are protesting. That is the reason I am support the BLM. That is the reason every White person must stand up for justice. The black guy who was shot in Atlanta two days ago could have been restrained just with a taser, even if he resisted arrest or even he could have been shot on the legs. He was shot and killed. They shot at him to kill him. And he was drunk. Is that fair? Would those cops have reacted in the same way if that guy was White?
Iran FYI is a country of ethnic minorities. The binding force in Iran is Shiism, which over 90% of the population adheres to.Iranian police treats minorities in Iran way worse and it is a systematic, government policy unlike individual actions by police officers.
In other words, seddo because your taqiya doesn't work except on lying Shiites.
Arab Sunnis in Iran dont constitute up to 2% of the population in Iran. Most Sunnis in Iran non Arabs.Yup and those 90% treat the other 10% like shit, especially Arab Sunnis.
It does because there is really little or no racial or ethnic discrimination in Iran. Some may claim sectatian discrimination against Sunnis. Of course the same people have made many false claims on that to incite Sunnis. The best selling point is claiming that even Jews and Christians have places of worship in Tehran but Sunnis dont. That also not correct.And how does it contradict @Muki's claim.
I said especially Arab Sunnis, not exclusively Arab Sunnis.Arab Sunnis in Iran dont constitute up to 2% of the population in Iran. Most Sunnis in Iran non Arabs.
But still your claim is not true. Just sensationalism.
And this thread is about US and its systematic racism towards blacks. Why are you trying to use Iran as an escape route?
"It does because there is really little or no racial or ethnic discrimination in Iran." - hard to believe because I know for a fact that for example Zoroastrians and Baha'i are being openly prosecuted.It does because there is really little or no racial or ethnic discrimination in Iran.

Please stick to the topic of the thread. Let us not drift from the topic. Not interested this evening to make posts that would be taken down by mods for off topic.
