  1. You gotta give her credit, she's got the black activist routine down to a T.
  2. And I think it's despicable that so many of the left refuse to hold the violent Baltimore communities responsible for their dereliction of duty. It's not just on the police to keep a community safe. If you're counting on that alone to keep your community safe, then your community is probably going to be a hellhole. It's mainly on the community members themselves to create an environment where violence and crime is frowned on and will not be tolerated. Instead, in the Baltimore communities where violence and crime is rife, too many community members adhere too the "No snitching" ethos and now we hear that packs of thirty to fifty people are confronting the police when they're trying to make arrests in those communities. No other communities, but majority black urban communities act like that. I guarantee you that if the police stopped active policing in other communities those areas would not descend into murder zones.
  3. One time was already enough...
  4. By the way, the new Freddie Gray video just released today should help sink the Baltimore cops. They had reckless disregard for Gray's safety. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/sun-investigates/bs-md-mount-baker-streets-20150520-story.html#page=1
  5. You said crime rate, by the way, not murder rate, although more up to date information about homicides puts the nation closer to the middle for that particular statistic And even your post says that the capital city is "safe and non-threatening during daylight hours" only to become "less safe at night," which is true of virtually every place. Below is my original factual statement which drew all the criticism. It's clear from context that the latter "low crime rate" reference is regarding a "low violent crime rate". Just out of curiosity, why did you selectively pick your statistics from one year over a decade and a half ago (1998) which, coincidentally, was during Burkina Faso's lowest murder point ever. Here's a multiyear table. Baltimore is 65% black. Every city with that black percentage has a lot of violence. What about the rest of the analysis you're selectively disregarding which is not true of every place. Particularly the apparent frequency of public violence, rape, and home invasions? I don't really want to debate the particulars of something I know much about.
  6. That's the problem with discussions that touch on race. There are always people who either mentally or emotionally cant deal with verifiable facts so they name call or scream "Racist" as a means of coping. You pretend to be an intellectual, but name calling as a means of turning attention away from a verifiable fact in not very intellectual. I'll tell you what, I'll pose the same challenge to you that I did Apple Jack, but we'll put stakes on it. If you can find me a city with a black population of 65% or greater that has a low crime rate, I'll leave this board forever. But if you can't, then you have to leave this board forever. I'll give you until midnight tomorrow, and we'll let the good people of this thread decide what constitutes a low crime rate for this exercise. “Black crime is the elephant in the room” he said, encouraging lawmakers to look instead at “transforming black underclass subculture behavior." The entire nation of Burkina Faso, which I assume we can all agree is more than 65% black, has exceptionally low crime rates. Pick a city. And then leave forever. Do you mean the Burkina Faso that WHO concluded had the world's highest murder rate in 2004? Do you mean the Burkina Faso with a murder rate well above the world average? Or do you mean the Burkina Faso which the United States Bureau of Diplomatic Security provides the following on? Since you unsuccessfully attempted to act in Tim's stead and banish me you really should have to leave, but I'll let you stay because I know you'd die without this place.

Black crime is the elephant in the room he said, encouraging lawmakers to look instead at transforming black underclass subculture behavior."I admire your bravery. Good luck with it. You'll definitely need it in here. If blacks are going to continue being insistent on segregating statistics and issues to fit their political agenda, then in fairness they shouldn't have any problems when statistics like these are presented along racial lines. When everything is seen in black and white, you can't selectively pull the race card when some of the stats don't look all that flattering. Personally I wish we'd all stop looking at the world through the racial lens, but I've resigned myself to the unfortunate reality that this isn't going to change anytime soon. So we'll all have to engage in some very uncomfortable discussions in the coming years on many different issues.Thanks for your kind words, but those words show how out of wack the race conversation has become. All I did was state a statistic supported fact, and from that one side is calling me a racist and the other side is calling me brave. But really isn't that how "racist" is most often used these days? On someone brave enough to tell the truth. We need to get to a place where it's considered neither racist nor brave to make truthful statements necessary to address to societal issues. Until then we'll jut have to ignore close-minded people like Tim who insist on denying facts and try to bully people into only viewing these issues from their one-sided, outdated, and demonstrably false theories.

  9. Baltimore is 65% black. Every city with that black percentage has a lot of violence. Did you suffer a lot of head trauma as a child? So no denial on the substance? Prove me wrong if you can.

  11. Its about managing expectations imo - Police have been given free rein for a very long time, so curtailing that a bit will have some demoralizing effects. But, that is not a reason not to reconfigure expectations. Our policing in general could use an overhaul, where more emphasis is placed on rebuilding trust in all communities, rather than policing via brute force and terror (which is how some communities feel). But that will take a shift in the overall perception of what we want from police and the justice system. Just like reforms that are needed to our education system, I think these changes are simply too big and all-encompassing to ever take place. It's odd that these systems never seem to work in majority black areas, but almost always seem to work in other areas. If systems never worked in one majority demographic area but always seemed to work in all other majority demographic areas, I'd ask what's wrong with that one demographic, and not what's wrong with those systems. Feel free to call me names, but I guarantee that decades from now you'll still be looking for the correct systems for those areas. Especially with the dysgenic effects going on there.

  12. No guns involved in this cop encounter, but this may be more painful... http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ed5_1430483035
  13. The officer may be right. If you watch the arrest video, Gray's legs look limp when they lift him off the sidewalk.
  14. There is no universal "black culture" because black people are not monolithic. But here's the culture of the rioters... http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1f8_1430264854 http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=042_1430317484
  15. Why do you speak with such certainty on the topic then?
  16. So what are the root causes of this mini riot? http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20150428/PC16/150429355/big-question-after-charleston-teen-rampage-why-did-they-do-it
  17. We threw bottles and rocks, but they looked at us funny. It's all their fault!Yeah, it must be the Orioles' fans fault for starting this portion of the riot...
  18. So a CVS on the corner and a liquor store down the street represent economic development to you? Baltimore Burning: $16 Million Southern Baptist Church Center for Low-Income Seniors Burned to the Ground That was terrible. Is your position that we as a society should do nothing for these people because if we do, they'll just destroy it? That seems to be what I'm hearing here from you, Rambling Wreck, and Dr. Oadi. You're reading an awfully lot into me providing a legitimate example of destroying development in response to your dismissive reply to Ramblin Wreck about the rioters not burning down economic developments. Is your position that you like to pleasure young boys? That seems to be what I'm hearing from you

  22. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/02/isil-beheadings-killer-jihadi-john-115529.html?cmpid=sf 'Jihadi John' unmasked By NICK GASS 2/26/15 8:01 AM EST Updated 2/26/15 8:33 AM EST British security officials have identified a man from a middle-class West London family as Jihadi John, the infamous masked killer who appeared in the Islamic States hostage beheading videos, multiple reports say. His real name is Mohammed Emwazi. He is a Kuwaiti-born college graduate who is believed to have crossed into Syria around 2012 to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, The Washington Post first reported Thursday. The New York Times confirmed the name with a British official. I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John, one of his close friends told the Post. He was like a brother to me I am sure it is him. Emwazi was reportedly radicalized following a planned safari in Tanzania after graduating from the University of Westminster. His family declined to be interviewed by the Post, citing legal advice. -------------------------- Yet more evidence against the cliche "lack of education/poverty" theory as the primary catalyst for Muslim radicalization.
