    now you are just talking gibberish. it really is quite simple. The black unemployment rate is 17%. why??? I assume it is due to some failing among blacks. you think I am incorrect. So, give me some proof that the black unemployment rate is higher due to some factor beyond their control.





    yeah, which is why all these affirmative action programs are bull****. but it does give minorities OPPORTUNITY (which was what this about ). What they choose to make of that opportunity is up to them.
    You keep pointing out how many black peeps are out of work but what about there are more white people on welfare than them? Guess that means there are more lazy white folks than blacks. Do not hand me that crap about there are more white people is the reason

    wrong analysis

    the percentage of blacks on government assistance is far higher than the number of whites
    I think right before the GOP congress forced clinton into welfare reform, the actual number of blacks had caught up to the number of whites in terms of those on assistance but I have no idea what the actual numbers are but the percentages still remain much higher for blacks

    The first wave of immigrants from Vietnam, primarily from the upper classes, has done reasonably well. The second wave, including the boat people, tend to be more low income. Their status has improved, but it's a mistake to think of "Asians" as one large, homogeneous group. In general, Viets, Cambodians, Laotians, and Hmong have had difficulties assimilating in the U.S., but are doing bettter. Of course, every group has difficulties assimilating for a generation or two. The Chinese and Japanese experienced major hostility and racial mistreatment.

    I fully agree-and even with that hostility and resentment and the bigotry they faced their rates of education are far higher than our "oppressed minority" and their rates of violent crime are far far lower.

    I cannot remember the last time an Asian was indicted for murder in the four counties I follow closely--now I understand in some areas-like LA there are Asian gangs that cause lots of problems but there are plenty of Asians in Cincinnati, and I cannot recall an Asian murder convict (I am sure there are some, I just cannot recall a single one)

    Piss poor reasoning. Asian murders are quite common in areas with large Asian populations. And, of course, Asian organized crime, like the Yakuza or Hop Sing, are quite violent. What area do you pay attention to? It isn't Chicago or San Francisco, or Houston or Orange county, I suspect.

    I guess you didn't read what I really wrote-I noted in some areas Asians have gang issues etc
    but being rather up on federal prison statistics as well as state prison trends Asians are underrepresented in the serious crime conviction categories and blacks are WAY overrepresented (54% of murder convicts in the USA are black-for a group that is about 12% of the population)

    Organized crime in areas like Cincinnati tends to take place under the surface. Extortion, human trafficking, drug sales, etc. Also, your population of Asians is under 2%. That's not a large population.

    you are "minimally" correct. 38.8% of people on welfare are white and 37.2% of people on welfare are black. So technically, there are more whites on welfare than blacks. However, there are 6 times more white people than blacks in this country so all other factors being equal, you should expect for there to be 6 times as many whites on welfare as blacks. So....why isn't this the case?

    blacks make up 13% of the population but 37% of the people on welfare.

    That's because "Asians" are treated as a large, homogenous group, and they aren't. A lot of Asian organized crime is also not reported to law enforcement. You want to draw this conclusion that Asians have suffered as much as blacks and yet, they're better. The problem is that this is not precisely true. And, the circumstances differ.
