    No you didn't mention poverty. That was your denialism. You denied that the left often recognizes poverty as one of the causes of problems that some blacks experience
    uhh, as I just pointed out, the comment was in no way about poverty. That is obvious from the "context".

Not sure how that addresses your previous claim, though and the fact it was obviously based on a faulty assumption

    While the right certainly has a denial aspect to it when we consider all things african american, the left often assumes all imbalances can be explained away by current appeals to systemic racism. Which I find just as silly, especially when this is based on a glaring lack of actual supporting data or unwillingness to look at alternative hypothesis.

    basically, both sides completely oversimplify the issue

    I'm not sure just repeating your earlier assertion, without any attempt to establish it as a fact, adds much value here

    Really has nothing to do with what we are discussing
    :0) You continue to make my point. I celebrate the denial and defend your right to it.

    actually you writing some trite platitude hardly demonstrates anything, nor does it constitute an argument

    That's just more denialism from you

    Sure it was. It was an implicit denial that the left doesn't often attribute the problems black people have to poverty

    :0) You still don't get it. I CELEBRATE the differences.

    The impetus for real movement and change needs people who think like you do. It absolutely requires it.

    Anyone not on the right who is thinking about not going to the polls the coming midterms should listen to people like you.

    Either way, from the article:

    The study, which was published Monday in the Archives of General Psychiatry, controlled for variables like socioeconomic status because rates of severe drug problems tend to be greater amongst the poor

    Read more: Study: Whites More Likely to Abuse Drugs Than Blacks | TIME.com Study: Whites More Likely to Abuse Drugs Than Blacks | TIME.com
    If the study uses cocaine as the singular measurement, any half-brain (let's say, undergrad or smart kid) can see the socioeconomic ignorance relegating the "study" to child level cognitive capacity.

    1. Whites are more likely to use cocaine. =
    2. Whites are more likely to use drugs.

    How does that qualify as basic reasoning, even logic? Idiocy.

    As we already know you are the only one between us showing any anger, so you obviously know you are making a false apology as well.

    I'm not a democrat, but I understand why many believe there is only one choice to make.
    So I guess when a black person gets caught with drugs, the system should give them a pass because of the color of their skin eh? Or else people like you will label it racism right? Bull!
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
