    3. There aren't extremely complicated relationships based on everything from crime, corruption, drug use, love feuds going on in jail?

    Yep. You've definitely jumped off the deep end on this one.
    Nice strawmen you have there...Why don't you just stick to what I do say, instead of inventing things....If you can.

    Nope. That's essentially what Kreton is arguing. Again, if you had actually followed the conversation from the beginning instead of just chiming in to root for whomever you thought benefited whatever non-point you have today.

    Oh, I've been following it just fine thanks...Unless you feel the need for me to trumpet a point I agree with. You're just mad that I revealed your stupid argument for what it was....Pure trash.

    ... Eh... Revealed what exactly? Show us the post? Sneering and saying "nuh-uh" doesn't really make you win an argument.

    I don't have to re post what was said, you have the ability to go back and read it for yourself....And before you come in here and say 'ah ha, see, you won't even show me', I am not here to do your bidding. You are not making yourself look any more intellectual with this game you are playing.

Schindler's List was a glorification of Germans during WWII?
    What I am saying is don't believe something just because it is shown on tv. There are plenty of opportunities you can be involved in in any number of inner cities. See it yourself and stop basing your views on what HBO tells you. The Wire does glorify many things involved. Same with Oz. TV is not real. You should really understand that by this point in your life.

    lol, oh wow, can't say the negative reaction surprises me on that one. Though I imagine the racial demographic split between racial groups infected by HIV is pretty astounding there and reflects her comment

    You are aware while the above is true, infection rates are heavily influenced by racial demographics due to how these things are often tied to poverty, education, etc? So while there isn't a direct connection between what race you are and if you will get aids (being black won't cause you to get aids), it does influence the likelihood you may be infected due to the various things such is indirectly related to
