    The claim that it is groups, not individuals, that have chips on their shoulders?

    IS that the claim that you wish to have proof of?

    I don't base my own opinions off of what research studies find. Everyone has an agenda.
    What I see is what I see.

    I have, on many occasions, noticed an extreme lack of situational information from said "research" that is needed in order to make the data have meaning. (For example, I had a debate with someone who brought up the "blacks get more prison time" argument. And they had data that showed this to be true. However, their data said nothing of the aggravating factors found by the judge in those cases, these aggravating factors are what DETERMINE the LENGTH of a sentence. Without that, the data means nothing, it has a hole the size of a freight train running right through it.)

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    like debating welfare and someone brings up the fact that there are more whites on welfare than blacks. without also mentioning the fact that there are around 8X as many whites in the country.

    that's why I put little stock in most of these alleged scientific studies. you can pretty much manipulate raw data to give the results you want in most cases.

    Have you ever heard of "controling for variables"?

    A lot of people put very little stock in things that are over their heads. It doesn't reflect on the thing sthat are over their heads, though.

    Why would I be proving the opposite of my claim?
