    Things will never change. Some things were never meant to change for very precise reasons that are out of human political control.




    It's the same reason liberal politicians can't prevent or hamper white flight phenomena. It is not controllable politically speaking. These are sociocultural phenomena that cannot be stopped.
    I think your assessment is good except the last line... I believe something can be done. Our society has to quit pretending that all cultures are of equal value and importance. We need to promote a positive respectful culture in media, in school, at home, and within our government agencies. We need to promote family values, chastity, honor, and education. We need to shun and cast out cultural Ideas and practices that form weak families, weak neighborhoods, and promote generational failure.

    What can be done?


    Whites, Asians, white Hispanics, Jews control and earn the money in the suburbs, cities and rural areas and they're never going to devote that money to minorities. Ever. They have absolutely no incentive to and that will always remain the same.


    Just the same, the blacks, Hispanics and others in urban settings have no real reason to obey the law. They have nothing to lose. There exist no jobs for them and never will. Ever. That's the harsh truth.

    Luther, I think I may have to change no to yes in that there may be slight change - only in the area of DOD surplus. But that would be a positive.

    What a load of crap you are pushing. Inner cities, by their nature do not push out capital. There is proof all across this country in downtown revitalization projects. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with culture. You should be ashamed for even trying to make a distinction between white Hispanics and Hispanics. What the hell are you even talking about?

    Each area has its own micro economy that functions in conjunction with the macro economy, when a community's culture is healthy the micro economy is functional, when the culture is dysfunctional money flees. Simple as that.

    When an individual seeks to serve another, that individual will promote the exchange of capital. When an individual seeks to serve himself, that individual will cause capital to become locked up. Be moral, serve others, be honest and fair and capital will flow.

    hence the fact that in a LOT of places, there arent enough viable candidates to fill the roles

    so maybe the standards get lowered a little....and then a little more.....and then a little more

    and in the end, you have people on the force who shouldnt be there

    finding people who want the power is easy

    finding people who can handle it is a whole different matter

    and in the inner cities.....you couldnt pay me enough

    and with all the cop bashing going on around the country now.....

    good luck filling the academies next year

    Okay good so you are actually in complete agreement with me then that, using your own wording, "when a communities culture is dysfunctional money flees" . We all know what "money" in this context means. Jews, Whites, Asians.


    You can choose to call it "culture" instead of race, yet at the end of the day I think the demographic stats represent themselves. Let's be honest what people really truly mean when they say "Urban areas". We all know they aren't talking about Anglo areas, about Asian areas, about Jewish areas or about white liberal uptown areas. Let's be precise about what urban populations in the modern American context actually means. It means African American and Hispanics that haven't integrated into the suburban culture.
