    That actually comports with her supposed statement. She said groups, not individuals. Not to mention you're saying that the causes of crime are more prevelent in these groups - same thing as what she's saying.

    As a group? Yeah, I think that's been proven.

    Judge Edith Jones of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will be subjected to a rarely used disciplinary review process to address alleged racist and discriminatory comments made earlier this year. In a letter released Thursday, Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts determined that the accusations against Jones, a conservative judge based in New Orleans, should be heard in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. "I have selected the Judicial Council of the District of Columbia Circuit to accept the transfer and to exercise the powers of a judicial council with respect to the identified complaint and any pending or new complaints relating to the same subject matter," Roberts wrote.

    The complaint alleges that Jones said certain "racial groups like African-Americans and Hispanics are predisposed to crime," and that they are "prone to commit acts of violence" and be involved in more violent and "heinous" crimes than people of other ethnicities. The judge also allegedly said Mexicans would prefer to be on death row in the U.S. than serve prison terms in their native country, and that it's an insult for the U.S. to look to the laws of other countries such as Mexico.

    The part in red I'm sure is true.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    So either you don't understand what predisposed means, she doesn't understand what predisposed means, or both.

    That predisposition does not stem from being black, which is the implication you give when you say "black people are predisposed towards..."

    Yes.

    Pg 19

    Cliffs: the disparity in homicide rates btwn Latinos and whites are explained by economic factors. With blacks, that's not the case.

    The author continues on so that he doesn't sound like a racist by offering some theories that likely don't hold water, but to anyone not making excuses the message is clear.

    Well, I'm glad you came to terms with the reality that blacks and Hispanics are predisposed to criminal activity. Good for you!!

    You literally think black people are genetically hardwired to be violent? Seriously?
    It's ok to admit you're wrong, without putting words into my mouth.

    It's you that doesn't know what, "predisposed", means. It's called a dictionary, Deuce.

    You are basically agreeing with her when you say "crime is related to social and economic issues that are more prevalent among blacks and latinos". No where in the quotes was it mentioned about it being genetic. You may have said it in a more politically correct way but it is the same statement. Maybe there was more said but from the quotes posted I see nothing racist or false about what she said.
