Not so fast! You answered that post about disproportionate sentencing of black, brown and native youth to prison and get on your soapbox about black violence and lack of moral compass and murder WITHOUT first checking to see what crimes they are being sentenced for!

In 2016, the Prison Policy Initiative estimated that in the United States that about 2,298,300 people were incarcerated out of a population of 323.1 million. This means that 0.71% of the population was behind bars.

Violent crime was not responsible for the quadrupling of the incarcerated population in the United States from 1980 to 2003. Violent crime rates had been relatively constant or declining over those decades. The prison population was increased primarily by public policy changes causing more prison sentences and lengthening time served, e.g. through mandatory minimum sentencing, "three strikes" laws, and reductions in the availability of parole or early release. 49 percent of sentenced state inmates were held for violent offenses. Perhaps the single greatest force behind the growth of the prison population has been the national "War on Drugs." The number of incarcerated drug offenders has increased twelvefold since 1980.

Well, so much for your little morality play! For some reason a much higher proportion of blacks are being sent through the prison industrial complex for drug possession offenses than whites...who either aren't being charged, or getting off with much lighter sentences! And maybe that ties in to this little drama about whether black football players should stand and salute during the playing of the anthem.

oopS Names will never hurt me, but an honest Debate may change my mind.

It appears the only nutter in this conversation is you
No he means you seem like a person with very little in the way of reasoning power.

Last year NFL ratings were down, was that all due to Colin Kaepernick, who was the only guy kneeling for most of the season?
NASCAR ratings are down, is that related?
NBA ratings are down, is that tied in too?
MLB ratings are down, is that because they let blacks play?

Those of us in the reality based community, need a little more than a link to piece which has a title that may appear to support your case, but if people actually follow it, they find a rant, one guys opinion.
So, why are NASCAR ratings down?
Too many Confederate flags, is that it?

Ahem, it's a well know fact that proportionally more Blacks break the law than Whites-sad but true.

Go Bears!!!!!

It's a fact that blacks are more likely to get arrested, there is evidence that whites and blacks break the law at about the same rate.

Documenting actual racism in our society? The right doesn't want to hear it.
But slight the religious right in not paying them homage on the Christmas cup? You better be prepared to get an earful on that!!!

The thing that amazes me about such statements is how it plays well to white right-wingers, but virtually nobody else.
It's actually a back-handed insult to blacks. A clear endorsement of "race politics", from the right-wing tilt.

Ken Mehlman may have apologized for this type of crap, but his party obviously continues to implement the practices...

Let me provide you some evidence for that...
White people are more likely to deal drugs, but black people are more likely to get arrested for it
Even more surprising is what gets left out of the chart: Blacks are far more likely to be arrested for selling or possessing drugs than whites, even though whites use drugs at the same rate. And whites are actually more likely to sell drugs:
Whites were about 45 percent more likely than blacks to sell drugs in 1980, according to an analysis of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth by economist Robert Fairlie. This was consistent with a 1989 survey of youth in Boston. My own analysis of data from the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows that 6.6 percent of white adolescents and young adults (aged 12 to 25) sold drugs, compared to just 5.0 percent of blacks (a 32 percent difference).

Fox/FS1 ends its 2017 NASCAR season
with yet another ratings low


Fox Sports has ended another NASCAR season and it continued its theme for 2017 finishing with another ratings low. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race at Sonoma on FS1 Sunday finished with a 2.0 final rating and 3.2 million viewers. That’s down 17% in ratings and viewership from last year (2.4/3.9 million).

That’s the lowest rating for the race dating back to 1998 and lowest viewership since 2002. Sports Media Watch points out that when the race aired on TNT in 2012, Sonoma had a 3.3 rating and 5.2 million viewers. For the season, Fox/FS1’s 15 Cup races either set or tied a multi-year ratings low. Twelve races set or tied multi-year viewership lows.

...Here are some of the races on Fox or FS1 that have suffered lows:

Michigan (FS1, 6/18 ) — 1.85 rating/3.1 million viewers (ratings down 16%/viewership off 9% from last year), lowest ratings since 1996, lowest viewership dating back to 2000.

Pocono (FS1, 6/11) — 2.2 rating/3.56 million viewers (ratings down from 2.3/viewership down 2% from last year), lowest-rated (excluding rainouts) since 2000 and least-viewed since 2001.

Dover (FS1, 6/4) — 2.1 rating/3.4 million viewers (ratings and viewership off 16% from 2016), lowest-rated race since at least 1998 and least-watched since 2001.

Charlotte (Fox, 5/28 ) — 2.8 rating/4.6 million viewers (ratings down 18%/viewership down 19%), lowest-rated since 1996 and least viewed since 2000.

Kansas (FS1, 5/13) — 1.55 rating/2.6 million viewers (rating down 18%/viewership decreased by 17% from the year before), tied as the lowest-rated race and 2nd lowest-viewed since 2011.

Talladega (Fox, 5/7) — 3.5 rating/5.9 million viewers (ratings down 13%/viewership off 11% from last year), lowest ratings since 1997 and lowest-viewed since 2001.

Richmond (Fox, 4/30) — 2.9 rating/4.6 million viewers (ratings dropped 6%/viewership down 4% from 2016), ratings tied for lowest since 2001 with viewership lowest since 2004.

Phoenix (Fox, 3/19) – 3.3. rating/5.4 million viewers (ratings down 18%/viewership off 19% versus last year), it was the 4th lowest-rated ever NASCAR race on Fox.

Las Vegas (Fox, 3/12) – 3.6 rating/6.0 million viewers (rating down 18%/viewership off 17% compared to last year), lowest ratings in the history of the race, viewership lowest since 2001

Atlanta (Fox, 3/5) – 3.8 rating/6.6 million viewers (ratings down 7%/viewership off 3% from last year), lowest race rating since 1998 for race following Daytona.

Daytona (Fox, 2/26) — 6.6 rating/11.9 million viewers (ratings flat/viewership up 5% from 2016), tied for second-lowest race since 1979.

Your "well known fact" is a fraud, as shown in #375's link dealing specifically with drug use vs prosecution for drug crimes.

In other NFL news, Trump fundraises off of Whitey's walkout at 49'ers game:
Trump sends fundraising email touting Pence's anthem walk-out

And all you fiscal hawks out there might like to know Pence's planned walkout cost taxpayers $242,000 for nothing...except more GOP fundraising rhetoric.
