Stattointhailand, I don't see this as a race issue, and there is no reason to bring racism into the equation. Please look at it from this perspective: The US is one big dysfunctional family, and I think all of us can relate to that since most of us come from a dysfunctional family in one way or another. The US government is the Mom/Dad of 4 male siblings named White, Brown, Black and Yellow, which represents their respective population units within the US (leaving out other smaller minority for purposes of simplification). If one sibling is not carrying his weight and is mooching off Mom and Dad and taking resources from the rest of the family, and is continually committing crimes against his other siblings, then that sibling has to be dealt with much more strongly than his brothers who are doing the same to a much lesser degree. That sibling has to be held to account for his actions and his course needs to be corrected, less he continue to be an emotional and financial drain on the entire family and the other three siblings hold him in great contempt. Just please tell me....what family unit would allow this to take place without some kind of intervention?stattointhailand wrote: ↑September 22, 2020, 4:37 pmThe fact that you are comparing % of Blacks, % of Latino's, % of White just highlights the problem.
100% of PEOPLE on welfare are "on welfare" doesnt matter a sh*t if they are Black/White or Orange with purple spots. Until it stops being "them" and "us" the racists will always win
I can make this analogy because I come from a dysfunctional family with a sister that did the very same thing to our family, and I put a stop to it when my father passed away. It was tearing our family apart, and now there is finally cohesion in our family. Therefore, if the problem with sibling Black is not addressed, he will continue to tear his family, The United States, apart. It doesn't have to be made into a race issue. It's a social issue and the solution has to start within the Black community as they take responsibility for their shortcomings and demonstrate a desire to repent and fix their own selves first. The root of racism is a simple lack of trust and respect that one race has for another, and we all know that trust and respect is not given lightly and has to be earned! Sadly, organizations like BLM are taking the Black community in just the opposite direction and driving the issue of contempt against the Blacks.
