    2. Did I advocate for more federal funding? No teachers changing test scores to receive more money is how the dept. of education is a failure

    3. Business won't open up because poor communities have no aspirations to work, welfare.
    Business won't open because they'll get robbed, higher crime rates due to things like black market sales in the drug war
    Business won't open because the growth of the market won't occur in poor run down neighborhoods, again direct response to failure in federal policies

    I feel like my explanations are far more conservative in terms of free market economical practice then you can even grasp, insulting me won't make you a real conservative you'll always be a statist neo-con in my opinion

    Please give me a reasonable explanation on how to end this societal fiasco we are witnessing right now
    Not blaming it on " systemic racism " and have the courage and integrity to offer up a honest account of whats really wrong would be a start.

    What you are describing are individual people making poor choices and having to live with the consequences of their actions. That isn't evidence of racism, systematic or otherwise.

    I already knew that; I just wanted you to admit it. Thank you for doing so.
    Did I ever say that these policies were intentionally created to target the black community in a negative manner? Please if I did show me my quote

    It's an effect of faked policy I'd like to understand what an actual political solution would be

    Well, there has to be " racism " somewhere.

    Maybe we're not looking hard enough.

    There's a lot of things that go into it, like people not having any other options but to sell drugs because they grew up in a community where their whole families are partaking in this black market

    People make a conscious decision to engage in that behavior. They always have a choice.

    There are nearly 3x more whites shot by police than blacks. Its damn hard to claim that black folks are being targeted by cops, using those numbers.

    Here's another fact that kills your argument: there are as many cops shot in the line of duty as their are black folks shot by cops.

    I understand what your saying and I agree people should be held accountable for their actions in terms of breaking the law, however he law itself is unconstitutional in terms of the war on drugs.
