    Well gee whiz..... 13% of the population commits 57% of the crime. Could it be that the % of Black Congress critters under investigation might match the demographics? Could the same be said for the number of White Congress critters?… statistically speaking.

    Apparently you didn't read the question correctly. Let's try that again: "What does national black crime, typically related to indigence or a lack of human capital, have to do with the alleged ethics violations of well-to-do blacks among the political class?"

    Absolutely nothing, but trying to explain that to him will just result in him repeating the same thing over again, convinced that he's won the argument.

    So it's possible that there is an ethical problem within the Black community?… you know, a high crime rate? Isn’t that what the Ethics Committee is investigating?… Crime?.. Or etiquette in the Senate dinning room?

    This isn't the thread to ramble about what you consider inherent immoralities of blacks. This is a thread suited to discussion of the investigation of specific political figures that lack the indigence of the general black population.

    Re: Racial disparity: All active ethics probes focus on black lawmakers

    Crunch are you suggesting that people who've made it to the higher levels of our government are just as likely as a population with disproportionate levels of unemployment and incarceration because of the fact they are of the same particular race group? To be a little more blunt are you suggesting that a nigger is a nigger regardless of whether he's wearing a du-rag or suit & tie?

    Personally I think this is an anomaly but it's still possible. The chance of winning a few hundred million dollars is a lot of times in the millions. But it happens. Several times a year. So I don't know.

    I don't presume to have an explanation for this disparity, but it's certainly startling regardless of how you look at it.
    It's only about race if all someone SEES is their race.

    I didn't realize that some of those people were even black - I had honestly never thought about it and nor do I give a crap.

    I don't elect my representatives based on their photos - I don't know about everyone else's - but my balots have all been photo-less.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Hmmmm.... median annual income in the US for whites is $42,422.

    Median annual income in the US for Blacks is $32,021.

    Doesn't sound like indigence is the cause.

    Now back to my point that you seem to be totally oblivious to... maybe this isn't anything to do with being a racist probe, but the inherent lack of ethics in the Race of the people under investigation… nurture, not genetics.
