Black crime vs. White Crime...Buchanan on the real problem in Black America

http://news.yahoo.com/black-americas-real-problem-isnt-white-racism-070000529.html

 

Staggering statistics.

 

Much more of a story than one incident of a misguided vigilante named George.

The interesting questions are in the why and when.  Have crime stats always been so lopsided?  What changed?   I don't buy into the idiotic claims that blacks are inherently more violent.  I'd bet it has more to do with the wars on drugs and poverty.

I think the 'high crime' stats, tends to also follow the 'broken families' stats.

While not true in every case (kids from a good home can be thugs, and kids with single parents can be almost saintly) but by and large, the kids that live in traditional two-parent households, tend to be the ones that don't get in as much trouble, and don't grow up to be thugs.

Also, in my opinion (and I'm wearing my asbestos underwear, as I'm sure someone will try to hold my butt to the fire for saying this) but I also think that part of the problem, is the 'giving' of benefits.  That leaves the beneficiaries a sense of entitlement without working for anything, and takes away the value of anything earned.

Not to mention, if you want to see trouble, give a bunch of youths and young adults lots of spare time, and no responsibilities.

 

I think one good 'reform' for public assistance, would be the requirement for the able-bodied to have to put in some time, for the betterment of society.   Wouldn't it be better, for someone out of work, to get into the habit, of doing some amount of work, and getting 'paid' their benefits at the end of the week, than to be in the habit of sitting in front of the TV, watching some show that rots their brains, and getting their benefits at the end of the week.  Which scenario would common sense tell you, would lead to more responsible citizens?

I agree J. When everything is given to someone it robs them of self respect. Without respect for oneself it is hard to have respect for anyone else. Why socialism is always a failure.

Statistics and proven facts can not be denied, without lying to yourself. Genetics makes the world go 'round. It is what it is.

If you say that it is completely choice, then you also must agree that being "gay" is also a choice.

Genetics matter????   Well, you just dashed my hopes of starting that "Certified Black Angus Dairy farm"   😞     Next thing you`ll be explaining the hopelessness of entering a Clydesdale in the Kentucky Derby!   I already lost a ton of money on that Jamaican Bobsled Team.

'If you say that it is completely choice, then you also must agree that being "gay" is also a choice.'

 

Two unrelated traits. That's like saying if you believe hair color is inherited so is favorite TV show must be two.

 

I'd make a bet that in 6000bc Europe was just as violent as Africa.
