you're obsession with black crime

That is like saying Patrick is "obsessed with reality".
Data from the FBI shows that Nationwide Blacks committed 5,173 homicides in 2014, whites committed 4,367. Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401 almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.
Understanding some racial realities does not make one racist.
Or obsessed.

The obsessed part is his posting statistics and articles about this, trying to convince us all of something, some thesis he has.

You do bring up an interesting point though. Is bias, if believed to be justified, racism ?

If a football team or jazz band answers an email from someone with a black sounding name asking for a try out or audition, giving them the try out or audition, and ignores the same application from a waspy sounding name, becasue of perceptual bias about the likelihood the person has the skills or talent, is that racism ?

(hint: yes - it is)

Oh lord.

Look, the black middle class in the US grew consistently throughout the decades DESPITE OPPRESSIVE RACISM AGAINST THEM up until the 1960's. In the middle 1960's the black middle class stopped growing...coinciding exactly with the implementation of the Great Society programs.

From that point on, black children born to fatherless homes grew exponentially until what you have today which is over 70% of black children born out of wedlock.

Thats your disaster right there...its not institutional or societal racism, unless of course you consider government welfare starting with the great society programs to be inherently racist(which of course they are).

Racism doesn't have crap to do with it and working harder than everyone else is NOTHING to be ashamed of, regardless of race.

Black teenage unemployment in the 50's was comparable to white teenagers. What happened since then? White racism increased?

I'll be the first to admit that welfare programs were a cop out and a failure. And yes it was democrats that pushed for this, although politics is a convoluted game, and it's hard to know entirely what the interests were behind our fucked up welfare culture.

But why was welfare considered necessary ? It had nothing to do with what was going on in the black middle class. It was that blacks were often the last in line for the good low skilled jobs such as in factories (which where sometimes good middle class jobs back then). Without decent jobs, what were they going to do ?

But on the other hand, I would agree that welfare totally screwed blacks over. And there are too many people motivated to have children and live on welfare now. I would be the first to agree with that. It's a huge problem/question. What do we do if and when some sort of base income becomes necessary ? Do we institute laws as to who can have children? Forcing people to meet certain requirements to have kids ? IF the government is going to pay a higher base income to those with children, then there probably needs to be some requirements, relative to age, education, and work. Not sure if Americans will ever agree to this kind of thing. IT's complicated by the fact that in the early years, staying at home with the baby is a job.

There might not be an easy answer to this. Maybe the answer is somehow having more jobs that don't directly contribute to someones bottom line, but do contribute to the betterment of the community. I know, that sounds too commie ? Especially to those that don't fully understand all the ramifications of the question.

In the hood, this is known as 'acting white', as is striving for good grades and education

This was a phenomenon where I grew up in NM: getting good grades was "being a snob" /" although when whites and hispanics got good grades, no one bothered them

Limousine liberals vote in favor of welfare to 'keep coloreds and deplorables' on their side of the tracks.

Matter of fact, the biggest 'lie' is conflating classism with racism. Limousine liberals are just as classist as anyone on other side of aisle, but just to pussy to admit it

That's a very accurate description of liberal politics.

Surprisingly today in this generation we have young black kids growing up with attitude of Black Panthers, they hate white people. And that happens because they are taught from birth to hate. Somehow liberals like to just sweep that one under the rug and not bring it up.

Corrected:

Democrats are opposed to voter ID laws becasue they are an obvious attempt to make voting less convenient for illegal aliens.

So I'd like to know how do illegals sign up to vote in the first place? Seems like you wouldn't need an ID if they have made sure you are able to vote in the first place. Why do we let those not allowed to vote to sign up?

No one thought the Republicans would be stupid enough to start a war without incontrovertible evidence.

Turns out they started a war with no evidence whatsoever.

That's the kind of stupidity we can expect from the Trump administration as well.

Implicit bias against Black Americans can cause small behaviors, like clutching one’s purse when a particular type of young man walks by, like imagining oneself in danger just because of the color of the folks around

Marcus, I agree with your earlier post regarding racism and how it effects our personal perceptions of people of color. But I also think the African American community has to take personal responsibility and stop lashing out at white people. I am a light skinned Hispanic and my husband is a mix of English, German, Jewish, Hungarian, and Peruvian ancestry. But he looks like an all white male. My children also look white. Since I have moved to Oakland my view of blacks has changed dramatically despite growing up in west Fresno. I have witnessed intense hatred towards my daughter from black girls, women and even a school director. I walked in on the high school director yelling at my daughter completely worked up displaying aggressive behavior over something another student told him. (long story short: a boy likes my daughter, a black girl likes that boy who doesn't like her). That same girl was able to say whatever she wanted about Jordan and get her into trouble with this man. This same black girl actually pulled a gun on my daughter pointing it at her face. My daughter Jordan didn't report the incident for fear that worse would happen to her. The school director did absolutely nothing about the incident and denied anything took place since no witnesses would come forward. Jordan's high school counselor is a black women and also displays similar hostile traits. The minute my daughter stands up for herself against a black person they literally go berserk. It's as if they feel that white people owe them and how dare they talk to me that way. My other daughter who attended a different school had a black teacher (who was half white herself) spend classroom time whining about how her black father had to work so hard to support his family.
Now let me tell you, she is complaining to a classroom of kids who come from different parts of the world who have really seen poverty. My daughter took note that this teacher would grade the white and Asian kids especially hard.

My grandfather worked the fields his whole life and I never heard him complain. Nor did he have hate for the white man. He was a trusted employee, a Forman, and worked literally the day he died. I think everyone needs to be held to the same standard. Whites, blacks and Mexicans, Asians, everybody. And everybody should be given a chance to prove themselves. But I don't think blacks should have a right to lash out at anyone who they perceive as privileged or white because they are benefiting from this society. They need to take some personal responsibility and make necessary changes.

I'm always impressed by the attitude and accomplishments of Caribbean and African blacks in America. Used to chat with a Haitian janitor woman in Boston the year I lived there, and she was very proud of how well her kids were doing in America. She had two in medical school. They seemed to be doing just fine in spite of "racism".

And it seems like every single black African I meet in the US is happy to be here, no hate for anyone.

Bill Cosby has some very clear opinions on all this and I would not be at all surprised to find that his current legal troubles are actually a deliberate smear attack because he is not being politically correct enough:

African Americans don't want to go to Africa. They want compensation for the slavery their ancestors endured.

If they are compensated then they should be required to go back to Africa. They can't be trusted to be fair civil citizens. Keep in mind a don't believe that all black person are not civil. But there are a good amount that display this discusting attitude that has contributed to the advancement of racism. I do not believe in racism. But I understand why some people have hate towards blacks. It's usually because of a bad personal experiences.

I don't think Liberals were prepared for the Conservatives to roll over on Civil Rights. That was not the outcome they were hoping for.
They wanted race war and civil strife so they could save the day with Marxism. Still to this day the Liberals keep fucking Black people over economically and socially, trying to instigate a race war.
By blaming it all on the White conservative cracker, that wants nothing more than to see everyone successful and getting ahead and a leg up. It's the Liberals with their labels and divisions that make damned sure they don't.

I'm starting to think there's a lot to this White Privilege and White Guilt, coming from the Left. It is real but it is theirs and Theirs alone. Projecting their flaws on to others is their coping mechanism.
Perhaps Liberals should atone for their actions in using Blacks for cover and as a patsy for their Commie schemes.

That makes the most sense of anything you've posted recently. People do tend to project their flaws and sins onto others. Conservatives would like to see blacks be happy, productive, friendly members of the community. Leftists want blacks to be angry anti-social outcasts who produce nothing but problems for conservatives.
I'm glad the country is done with Leftism for now.

They are different; they also use affirmative action to their advantage. If you go through Harvard, 7/10 of "African Americans" come from these cohorts.

Also, they are overwhelmingly not coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, yet the scores are still more than 100 points below Asian candidates

Buress broke it open, yes.

But Buress' comedy bit was inspired by Cosby's position that blacks need accountability in their community. The black community did not welcome this message coming from a black man worth $400M.

So yes, Patrick is correct above.

I totally agree with you, and that story was surprising to me. One thing I wondered about it was whether part of the issue was simply personality and culture, that its the perceived aggressiveness or hostility. Having experienced different schools as a teacher and student teacher I'll share an observation. Adults yelling at students in a school that has a high black poulation is not unusual at all, where as yelling at white, asian, or especially latino kids is considered very rude and inappropriate. That is, as a cultural difference, black kids respond to (and respect) that kind of intensity, where it would be considered over the top and rude especially with Latino kids. You have probably seen videos of a classroom situation with a male teacher diffusing a fight situation by getting in their face (of mae black students)very intensely.

Is it possible that was what you were seeing in that situation? That is more a cultural difference or habit as to how that lady interacts with all children, rather than a black versus white thing? Obviously I wasn't there, and I'm not saying that was the case. Just posing the question as a possibility. Otherwise it's surprising, becasue in schools, most people are going to make a conscious effort to treat students the same. AS for the bit about grading some students easier, that's really sad if it happens, and also would be surprising. A black teacher essentially holding white kids to a higher standard ? Bizarre if true.
