Their "man-cards" immediately revoked and they should all be required to legally change their first names to Nancy.

Well, thank you for posting that, but you realize (I HOPE) that numbers don't mean a thing unless you consider the percentage of whites v blacks? Right?
'According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population.' WaPo July 11, 2016

Try this.
Poor people commit crimes at a much higher rate than middle class and wealthy people.
And in the US we have a lot of poor black people, mostly due to this being a country with a long history of brutal racism aimed at keeping black people poor.
it is an economic problem as much as it is a racial problem

Quite possibly. Could simply be nonsensical gibberish.

That is a fact. It also has nothing to do with what I said.

I said America was a police state. You said something about Blacks committing more crimes than Whites. Now you're accusing me of "race-baiting" because I don't take anything you say seriously.

Well hey since your into statistics. Since blacks make up only 13% of the population, then riddle me this statistic and what it means.

I'm not sure if this is what you are asking, but studies suggest that the reasons behind blacks being more likely to commit/be victim to violent crimes are the dual issues of poverty (which exacerbates family breakdown) and a sub-culture among the black community that is tolerant of and glamorizes crime and violence. Generational poverty is running rampant in the cities, particularly for the black community. No money, no hope, no jobs and no opportunity. Gangs rule. Wars erupt.
The sub-culture is learned. Single parent moms. Kids growing up seeing extreme violence every day. Lack of education. Accepted incarceration. Again, this is generational--a cycle that perpetuates more violence. WE can't seem to get a handle on this learned culture, even though many have tried. It's like a disease with no vaccine.

Just a few days ago the National Park Service said bring back the CCC. The National Park System is in disrepair and needs fixed up. Living wage for all who apply and give shovel jobs to the undereducated, not verbatim.
