ulation, but are 55% of the homicide victims.
Can someone tell me what percentage of those homicide victims are killed by other african americans?
the funny thing is this dude really thought he had a point of some sort.
He does have a point .... black men are far more likely to get murdered than white men. That their murderers share the same skin color doesn't change that.
However, if Corey Booker (or any politician) really gave a shit about dead black people, he'd talk about the genocide of black babies by the abortion industry. A number of large cities abort more black babies than are delivered alive. The only place more deadly for a black man (or woman) than on the street is in the womb. It is the single biggest reason that the black population has remained static as a percentage for the last 50 years, while other minority groups have experienced explosive growth.
sounds like a black person problem to me?
How's whitey suppose to help black Mama's be good black Mama's?
Now when black folks start killing white people, babys or otherwise then whitey can help them out via death and/or incarceration.
Fact is fact blacks have and will always be fucked everywhere.
They only ones that have a half a chance are the light skinned ones that pass or are straight up oreos.
Whitey needs to STOP trying to fix things for black America, because he screws it up every time. Blacks were making solid economic progress in the 100 years between the restoration and the civil rights movement. Then the nanny state stepped in to 'fix things' and everything went to shit.
Welfare pretty much destroyed the black nuclear family. Up until the 1960s, blacks and whites had nearly the same percentage of two-parent households. Now nearly three-quarters of black fathers are at best an intermittent presence in their children's lives (and often no presence at all).
The war on drugs was supposed to make black neighborhoods safer. It did the opposite. It was supposed to help reduce black substance abuse. It did the opposite.
Obama's school discipline reforms were supposed to improve black student outcomes in American public schools. It made them worse .... for everybody. It also made them much more dangerous.
The list goes on and on. Almost every government program put in place to help black people has hurt them instead.
That was all by design, not a screw up. Same as flooding Appalachia with pain meds. Controlling poor people has always been a priority.
I don't believe there is some Machiavellian plan to do harm to poor Americans. That is where I draw the line between legitimate criticism of the government and conspiracy theories.
I refuse to believe there is some purely evil oligarch class that intentionally put millions of their fellow Americans through pain and misery. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and I truly believe that every awful, shitty government program that has backfired was put in place with the best intentions, even though most of them amount to nothing more than magical thinking.
The real problem is a failure to acknowledge past failures. We see it all the time with socialists and their 'real socialism' arguments that by God we'll get it right next time, when the entire history of the 20th-21st century tells us that planned economies are doomed to failure. The same is true of all of these 'wars' against social issues. Nobody ever stops to see whether the billions flushed down on the toilet on the 'war on drugs', 'war on poverty', 'war on homelessness' etc. have done anything to accomplish their goal.
Bureaucrats would rather keep burning money doing the same shit that hasn't worked for the past 50 years rather than admit they are abysmal failures. Einstein would call that insanity. As Ronald Reagan said 'Government programs once launched never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth'.
