    And no, I am not going to just go away. Not until you deal with your gross lack of understanding of race and racism.

    Give us an example more recent, guy. Perhaps from this century.

The war on drugs is destroying the communities, and there is a lot more police officers hired into higher crime places causing arrests and violence to increase.

    We can't blame the everyday cop, we can't blame the American people, what we need to do is blame the policies that are causi all of this to occur
    Specifically, what policies are you talking about?

    War on drugs

    Government officials bringing drugs into lower communities

    Welfare state

    Dept. of educations horrible job of advancing education in urban areas.

    There's a lot of things, but those primarily are the things that are holding back the urban areas. The war on drugs criminalizes people for something that is unconstitutional, causing higher crime rates causing black market dealings causing violence all of this goes along with people in these areas not having real opportunity due to the fact that business won't open up, markets won't open all kinds of policies you just need to look and see side effect of failed economic policies and you'll understand the major factors in the urban community and how there is systematic racism.

    .
    I posted a link earlier in this thread. When you look at police shootings, blacks are disproportionately killed based on their % of population. Yes, more white people are killed - but not when you look at it as as % of their population in the country.

    I posted the link to the NYC shootings from 2011 that show that not only are there fewer in number but also percentage. But if you are going to play with numbers then you have to play with all of them. You represent that there are more blacks statistically targeted by percentage. OK. Now...by percentage, which racial category commits the majority of criminal acts in this country?

    Thank you. Also, just the fact that crack cocaine (which was used more by african americans than whites) had longer sentences than powder cocaine (which was used more by whites than african americans) shows the racism that has led to so many black people being jailed while whites walk free.

    They're far less of a issue than things like poverty, dependance, illegitimacy, violence and illiteracy are.

    If Police brutality and racism were substantial issues these " protesters " wouldn't need to invent occurrences and lie to gin up support.
