Yep

Re: inflation

Whoa ed, now we're bashing blacks? I'm judging from the lack of reaction on this board that we haven't offended anyone yet, but I think your heading down a road we don't want to go down! Your statements leave unanswered why more African Americans (as a percentage) are in unsavory states of being. If it's not circumstances, are you saying it's a genetic inferiority? I'm asking you to clarify your position, because I don't want any "ism" impressions left on this board.

Think about this: conservatives say the family is the number one influence on a child, and I agree (some say I'm conservative). But if your parents are illiterate former slaves, how much further along socio-economically will you get? Considering slavery transitioned into legal segragation that only ended around 1970, I think it's a little premature to imply blacks will always be downtrodden . You are going to have to cite your sources on those statistics there, too. Considering more than half the people in jail are white nationwide, are blacks just better at not getting caught? This rant of yours seems better suited to a "Church of the World Creator" board, eh?

I think the lack of reaction is because most people have decided not to feed the troll.

Ignore it and it will go away.

Re: inflation

cal are you from the up ay, they call us trolls cauz we live under da bridge ay. yah.
Offend blacks, with the truth? Among men, blacks (28.5%) are about six times more likely than whites (4.4%)
to be admitted to prison during their life. Among women, 3.6% of blacks and
0.5% of whites will enter prison at least once. (U.S. Department of Justice)
Based on current rates of incarceration, an estimated 7.9% of black males
compared to 0.7% of white males will enter State of Federal prison by the
time they are age 20 and 21.4% of black males versus 1.4% of white males will
be incarcerated by age 30. (U.S. Department of Justice)
Some have noted that more black men are in prison in America than are in
college. (The Black and White of Justice, Freedom Magazine, Volume 128)
As jack would say YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: inflation

Here a few more stats, I gleaned from the FBI and us justice depts.

Blacks murder more than 1,600 whites each year.
Blacks murder whites at 18 times the rate whites murder blacks.
Blacks murdered, raped, robbed, or assaulted about one million whites in 1992.
In the last 30 years, blacks committed 170 million violent and non-violent crimes against whites.
Blacks under 18 are more than 12 times more likely to be arrested for murder than whites under 18.
About 90% of the victims of interracial crimes are white.
Blacks commit 7.5 times more violent interracial crimes than whites, although whites outnumber blacks by 7 to 1.
On a per capita basis, blacks commit 50 times more violent crime than whites.
Black neighborhoods are 35 times more violent than white neighborhoods.
Of the 27 million nonviolent robberies in 1992, 31% (8.4 million) were committed by blacks against whites. Less than 2% were committed by whites against blacks.
Of the 6.6 million violent crimes, 20% (1.3 million) were interracial.
Of the the 1.3 million interracial violent crimes, 90% (1.17 million) are black against white

So you can email the dept. of justice, and argue with them, maybe calling them trolls will show them the error of their stats. hahahahaha, you libs, we need a few of you to keep humor in politics

Re: inflation

Powerful statistics Ed, but the one I would point out is "3.6 percent of blacks enter prison at least once"

....so that means 96.4% aren't ex-cons! I was just saying you can't generalize. Poverty begets crime, and blacks are poorer than whites, on average. Why that is, I'm not even going to touch that conversation/debate!

Re: inflation

Realized I misread your post, that was black women, your post says ~72% of black men never go to prison, but my point, I think, remains relevant.

Re: inflation

Maybe sometime Ed will ponder WHY some of those statistics are the way they are, there is usually a cause to go with the effect.

By the way, 101.2% of those statistics are incorrect.

Re: inflation

Wow I have never heard libs, more unable to accept reality, Don't confuse you with the facts right?
I got the stats from the just dept. and give my source, what does TH do, du facts are wrong. Th you would have made a great lawyer,
Your honor, I object to the witness, he is wrong, based on what, I said he was wrong. lol.
You dumb ass. did mama sit you backward on a toilet seat?
You need a double lobotomy.
Indeed the room temp. IQ's on this forum are disgusting, I will leave the forum because it is nothing more than a bastion for down and out libs who are pissed that they lost the elections since 94, and have done little to "change the world in to a haven for hippies, beatniks,animal lovers, and idiots.
well you lost, get used to it, we "thankfully" have 4 more glorious years with a president that dose more than shove cigars up interns snatches.
I can always stand the heat and will not leave the kitchen, but this is an exercise in association with the mentally challenged and bitter. btw, I it rally is no concern of mine what caused the blacks to have the states that they do, there are plenty of whites that are poor, why do Asians come into this country and before you know it they have a store, work hard and make something of themselves? you don't see Asians in the streets of LA burning down their neighborhoods. you libs are the most inept,unreasonable,out and out morons on the face of the earth. I am off to another forum with more intel. you can all sit and post about how smart you are and how stupid I and cons. are.
see you in the funny papers.

Re: inflation

Laurance--prison is only for the hard core. *Basically it is for the professional criminals. *If I remember correctly I think the percentage of convicts who go to prison is about 1%. *I know it is in the single digits. *Either the bad guys were convicted of a serious crime or they have been convicted on numerous crimes. *A person can be convicted of a serious crime but if it is not violent the tendency is to give them a light sentence. *So the stat that 72% have gone to prison is a little misleading when looking at the number of people being convicted. *It does not take into account the number of people who have gone to jail.

As far as povety breeeding crime that is incorrect. *It boils down to socialization, there are a few exceptions those who have mental disorders, sociopaths, pshycopaths. *The better use of poverty is as a measure of the family's ability to "make it" in larger society. *How many of you have seen the person at work who seems a little strange, they are normally in low level positions, or are passed over for promotions consistantly? *The socialization prosess teaches those in the poorer areas that they can not make it, they don't have the ability, they need help, and worst of all if it feels good do it. *All of these lessons lead a person to not "fit" with successful America. *If you don't fit with the successful people you stay at the level where you began. *Fit does not mean go with the flow it means the mental process to take the chances required to succeed. *Look at Malcom X, Martin Luther King, Jr, Hitler, Ghandi. *Respect is not a measure to learn from these people, some used hate some used peace to affect change in thier worlds. *The point is all grew up poor or outcast in thier society all rose to greatness.

Re: inflation

LR, I admit to oversimplifying, you put it much more eloquently than I could, and I agree wholeheartedly.
