white people need to step up their game

Luke Magnifico

If you lads weren’t so prejudiced they’d make up a full 13% of your victims

SHAME

Here’s the thing, sunshine. When it is state-sanctioned murder by law enforcement, it doesn’t fucking matter what the percentage is, ANY amount is wrong. Horribly wrong. But hey, hurrr durrr, those savages sure do kill each other a lot, hurr durr. Thugs, etc.

13% of the population, 30% of those killed by police.

Now the reasons are varied and complex, but there is obviously a problem here…many problems actually.

now factor in the percentage of each population lives below the poverty line and things should look a bit clearer

Poverty…one of the many problems.

Nothing whatever to do with any cultural or other propensity to criminality.

“many problems actually”

Sometimes cultures broken by devastation have difficulty recovering…even centuries later.

Practical genocide did that to the native North Americans.
Slavery and the institutional racism that followed have done that to African Americans.

“propensity” is impossible to measure….and just as likely a result of environment as genetics.

But don’t let thoughtful analysis get in the way of your precious narrative Skandy.
I know how uneasy it makes you.

So… shouldn’t the Black Lives Matter protesters be doing more to convince black people not to kill other black people?

Wouldn’t this save more black lives?

Now see .. you’re letting logic and reason intrude. You should try “thoughtful analysis” instead. As per the wobbly word spill immediately above your post.

Yeah… Propensity… How did I not see that.

I am still sticking with my “propensity-lacking” argument that if black lives matter so much – then black people should kill each other less. This would save many more lives.

And it might convince the police that black people were less of a threat.

Win-win as far as I am concerned.
