    You think black people are inferior and that's why they suffer disproportionate poverty?

    That's the only other "possible cause" of disproportionate poverty.

    I like eco. I don't always agree with him but he's fair and gives what he gets.

    Well, there you have it, all white people are automatically racist according to an expert. That should end all epithet's and race baiting from whites on whites because we're all equally guilty, right?
    It's amazing how unintentionally ironic this statement is.

    I think they're equal, not inferior or superior, but their culture is caught in a loop of self-inflicting harm. It was initially caused by white oppression but it's not being propagated by it anymore.

    If they're equal, why not proportional wealth and power? Why don't the numbers line up?

    You do like your selective editing dont you?

    You keep singling out white people which is in itself a very vague and general term as racist, and you say ALL white people are racist. Perhaps you are using an uncommon definition. Define what you mean to be racist.
    Damn how did that get there? The whole post wasn't supposed to be there.

    Yes thread is about "white" racism, of which you claim to be the resident "expert" in. I am questioning your take that ALL white people are racist. Not all just north American white people, but white people everywhere. Thats a big brush buddy. So I presume you have specialized definition of racism.

    As from before the one I am using, from the Oxford dictionary,

    noun
    noun: racism
    prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

    A partial dictionary definition education, ignoring parts of the definition. It's like you went to dictionary school and didn't complete the assignment.

    Don't waste my time.

    Re: All White people are racist

    Well making such a racially based blanket statement about all white people only illustrates that Van Jones is talking like a racist would. Is he a racist? I don't know. But his statement, perhaps made out of passion or despair, certainly rings out as a racist utterance.

    However in his badly made critique is a serious kernel of truth. The combination of too much institutional racism in some law enforcement agencies, coupled with the militarisation of police and their tactics is turning some parts of America from policed zones into occupied zones where the police are viewed and sometimes treated like a foreign, occupying, military force. This is down to kitting out and training fewer officers to mete out more force, rather than having more officers doing low impact community policing and using their brains and voices to keep order rather than their brawn, weapons and military cast-off MRAPs to intimidate and infuriate entire neighbourhoods of people, many of whom are racial minorities and members of lower income brackets. The problem is very much a problem of methodology and culture in the ranks and leadership's of police forces as well as an issue of lawlessness in the streets, which also is a big part of the problem.

    Cheers and be well.

    As far as I am concerned on this one subject he is a glorified troll at best. Otherwise he is perfectly sane and nice individual and I agree with your assessment of him. In general I find him to be a well written and personable.

    On to the next response of Eco to put my virtual boot to his virtual hinny.

    Jones isn’t an expert on racism, IMO, but he does have a lot of experience dealing with racial issues. More to the point though, Jones doesn’t speak for anyone but himself.
