... the various crimes of indifference committed against Blacks on a daily basis....

What the fuck are you talking about?

You know... the ones committed by other blacks.  But it's whitey's fault.

And look how the definition of racism changes to suit a belief.

It used to be properly defined as: discriminating against, or treating someone differently based solely on their race. Or believing one race is superior or inferior to another.

But to keep this thread on topic... I'd suggest we talk about how big of a criminal Floyd was, and what that did do increase his odds of having a police interaction not go his way.

Seems like he had a drug problem from 1996-2007.  Got like 3 years for a 4 separate possession of <1g of cocaine charges, a few petty thefts that got him a few weeks, and then in 2007 armed robbery got him 5 years.

He got out in 2011 and had been holding down a steady job for a while until he was laid off in early spring.  My guess is he relapsed.

Did you read the charging documents?  Because it doesn't seem like you did. http://www.mncourts.gov/mncourtsgov/media/High-Profile-Cases/27-CR-20-12949-TT/ThaoComplaint06032020.pdf

What does that Affidavit have to do with my comment?

This whole thing is built on a foundation of lies.

Defund the police
More training
Racist cops
Trigger happy cops
Etc...

Two important numbers, and even basic math can reveal the truth:

Over 10 million arrests per year.
Then find the number of UNJUSTIFIED deaths at the hand of police.  Usually less than 10-12 per year.

That should give you a successful survival rate of around 99.999988% when being arrested by police.

Training of humans that has a 99.999988% success rate sounds pretty good to me.

The success rate can also be increased further if you remove suspects who resisted arrest from the deaths.
Now imagine, if you will, removing suspects who were not committing crime from the numbers....   whoa, mind blown.

A post of mine keeps getting removed by a moderator.... although on topic regarding my thoughts on CHAZ, and a direct historically accurate response to a question..... so not sure how I can reply to any other direct questions on this thread.

I'll just keep trying...

If you had a question for me, please ask again and I'll try a newly re-worded response that may not be as offensive to sensitive liberals views.



This is cute....

  ....whatever type of racism they attribute it to is always disproved, so they'll create a new type of racism next election cycle.  
Where was racism disproved? Are you saying that slavery and jim crow were not based on race?  I honestly do not understand what you mean.

Reading comprehension junior.    You missed about 98% of logical reasoning in my post, and got confused on the other 2%.
   I understand you probably haven't been alive long enough to observe the changes, so I'll spell it out for you again.
   The liberals keep changing the definition of racism, defining it, and theorizing different types of racism. They are manufacturing new types of racism to appeal to your feeling, and it's based on weak "facts" and shaky theories.
   There's a new Democrat talking point every 4 years and the naive do nothing but parrot the buzz words.
The new one for this election cycle to make the rounds is "systemic" racism. And when you watch the propaganda films and facts they use to substantiate their systemic racism, they leave out conflicting facts that easily question the theory as being solid.


   Want to see how bad you are being manipulated?

Go to google, and type in "Is ______ racist"

Fill in the blank with whatever comes to mind. Anything. And look at the results.
A few things that google told me were racist:  masturbation, air, water, dogs, knitting, hair, anal sex, cars....

   It's really getting funny how hypocritical the left is... point the finger... point the finger, and everyone looks over there. They pay no attention to what you are doing, just what you point at.
   Implicit racism, institutional racism, systemic racism, this racism, that racism..... they come out with a new type of racism whenever they run out of the last one.

  They keep talking in a circle, but always hit on one point....... poverty.   Now, in the Democrats eyes (yes, this is all political now), the poverty is caused by racism. (Look over there). Whatever type of racism they attribute it to is always disproved, so they'll create a new type of racism next election cycle.  But the poverty is actually caused by Liberal Democrat policies, in Democrat controlled cities, in Democrat controlled states.
    They'll show you propaganda films of black kids being unable to succeed because they couldn't go to a good rich school 2 blocks away because of imaginary lines. But when they'll leave out the part of school funding, and increased funding to poorer schools had ZERO effect. It's proven that throwing money at poverty doesnt work, it just creates dependency, and that's what the Democrats want.
    We see higher crime rates among the poor in every race. The black community fears racism, and when you can control someone's fear, you control them.  Just like their Democratic President LBJ said, they'll keep them voting Democrat for 200 years. The poor communities are being kept poor intentionally. The Democrats give the poor free money, free housing, free food. The poor have literally zero incentive to work, better their lives, or leave their free accommodations. And thats how the Democrats want it.
   And what' the next best voter base they can manipulate?  The young and naive. Shove propaganda down the throats of the young naive kids with feelings via Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and you can make someone born less than two decades ago think they are guilty for something that happened two centuries ago.

  Some of us have been on this earth long enough to see this happen EVERY election cycle. Theres a routine. Theres a pattern.

   But do not fret.... there is a cure for racism. And the Democrats have already found it. It's OPEN BORDERS.  They've already done studies on the Latino vs Black birth rates in the US. The black birth relate is dropping, and the Latino birth rate is rising. Open borders can expedite their plan, and once they feel they can manipulate the larger Latino vote, you will see the switch happen. All of a sudden, you'll see the political battle cry switch from black racism to Latino something. Racism will have been cured.

   Have you not noticed already, the change in the narrative from the last election cycle?   4 years ago, it was just RACISM, RACISM.   That didnt work, so now they want to scream it louder, come up with systemic racism, oh, and this time lets throw in some white supremacy to top it off.   Yes, one talking head in this thread actually called Candice Owes a white supremacist.  

On topic..... George Floyd was a career criminal with a much higher probability of dying while committing crime, than a non-criminal.

....they have simply "occupied" a piece of their own city.
You mean they stole it from the people who live and have businesses on that block.

Interfering with peoples' ability to go to the corner store on that block is illegal, isn't it?

That would be assault.

Ever noticed how kids put the word "simply" before everything when they try to justify criminal activity?

They were "simply" sitting on the interstate.
They were "simply" expressing their feeling by stealing shoes.
They were "simply" protesting racism by beating black cops with bricks.

I am "simply" saying CHAZ is a joke to stay on topic and avoid biased moderation.

 I didn't bite, and gave him a non-answer answer, and as expected from real racists like him, he believed the non-answer answer was racist, and accused me of white supremacy... literally assuming my skin color based on words written.

Yep.  There it is.  Popojeff is a white supremacist.  He had to preface it with about 3 paragraphs of fluff before backing into it, but it came right out.  Of course, he wrote the post in a way where he can back out of it, because he's a closet white supremacist.  

And BINGO, there it is. First the logical fallacy of the loaded questions - both you and Twitch, and now your attempt to entrap people that responded to your shit.

It does seem like popojeff thinks the reason for all the racial disparities is simply because black people are just naturally inferior compared to White people.  I've asked directly several times now: if the reason isn't systemic racism, than what is it?  Nobody seems to be able to come up with a rational explanation and instead resort to personal attacks and trolling.


I gave you a reasonable information, and said my "answer" is that there is no ONE answer
Here's the refresher if you've already convoluted the words in your brain.

Quote
I cant say I have the one answer to your question, and I doubt there is one answer.  There are so many exceptions to the rule, that it's really not a rule anymore.
   There are successful people of EVERY race and gender in every level of the economy and government. We're Sooooooo racist in the US that we had a black President. And we see failures from every race too.

I've seen scientific studies indicating darker pigmented mammals have higher levels of testosterone. Higher levels of testosterone decrease intelligence and increase propensity for violence. I've seen studies of increased breakdown of the family structure being a clue. Absentee fathers. Etc...

There are so any generalizations with shaky evidence, that I doubt most of the theories.

In my opinion, there's no ONE answer, but I put a lot of weight on individual responsibility and the lack of it in the poorer black neighborhoods. When the elitist liberals, entire Democratic Party, and the left-owned media tell you day after day that your life is someone else's fault, the government will pay/feed/save you, you are owed something for doing nothing, and white people hate you......  why the heck should you think any differently and take responsibility for your own life?  

You just dismiss it as racism.

We know systemic racism isn't the answer either. That's been proven an incorrect theory created for political influence.  

So if it's not systemic racism, and you think my input is racist. Then what's your theory ?
53  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Riots after Death of Man in Minneapolis Police Custody on: June 20, 2020, 11:43:45 PM
[Racial disparities are a social construct and if you disagree with me you are literally Hitler.]

Which is more racist? Addressing the real causes of these issues so they can be addressed, or obfuscating these truths in order to use minority groups as pets, human shields, and puppets for your cancerous Postmodernist Marxist ideological goals?
But here are the goals of BLM from their website which also overlap with many of the causes of the disparities and just so happen to align with my goals.  Are you saying that the issues on this list do not address the causes of the statistical disparities?

Racial Injustice
Police Brutality
Criminal Justice Reform

Black Immigration
Economic Injustice
LGBTQIA+ and Human Rights
Environmental Conditions
Voting Rights & Suppression
Healthcare
Government Corruption
Education
Commonsense Gun Laws

You have to admit getting the bold items done is at least start, right?

I am saying you and everyone like you are mentally ill and completely full of shit. I don't care what you tell me your goals are, I see the results of your actions and they acheive the exact opposite.

54  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Riots after Death of Man in Minneapolis Police Custody on: June 20, 2020, 11:01:31 PM
I've agreed with all of the facts you posted and have known about them for a long time.  We only differ on why we think those stats are the way they are.  I attribute the current state of things to history.  

Where did I assume your skin color?  Everyone over a certain age in most of this country was indoctrinated into a white supremacist world view from a young age.  Candace Owens is a notable black white supremacist.  The thing about ignorance is that it doesn't need to make sense.

Having a white supremacist world view doesn't mean that your intentions are bad, it just means that you honestly believe the disparities in the statistics exist because people with a darker skin tones have, as a whole, made choices that are inferior to the choices made by people with white skin.  

The alternative to the white supremacist world view is to acknowledge the disparities exist due to the historical fact that black people have been systematically oppressed by the legal, financial, health, housing, labor, education, and criminal justice systems throughout the course of this nation's history and that the residual effects of that historical oppression still linger, and are still being furthered today.  

Overcoming systemic oppression is not about being "stupid" or "smart" because even if we were living in a capitalist system completely absent of racism, family wealth would be the number one factor that determines your future and the racial wealth gap is ever increasing.

And yes, I do believe children are "too stupid" to overcome the effects of generational poverty and give themselves a level playing field in the first 10 years which are the most important developmental years.  

Obama is black and successful but he wasn't the best example because he had the advantage of being raised by people with white privilege.  With that said, there are definitely extremely gifted individuals who came out of nothing with much less than Obama and I want to reiterate the point that outliers do not dispel trends.   If a failure is an outlier, it is an individual problem but if failure is a statistical trend, it is a societal problem.

Absolutely ludicrous to call a black person with a conservative ideology a "white supremacict."

Absolutely irresponsible.

This is where liberals have convinced you to associate conservative/liberal with white/black.
This is where they have failed you.
And you still cant see the hypocrisy
55  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone... What are your thoughts on it? on: June 20, 2020, 09:34:35 PM
Its not the politicians' city though.   They realize they work for the people who are out there and they have simply "occupied" a piece of their own city.

So they've segregated themselves from civilized society. On property that should be open to use by all races, sexes and political ideologies.  

It is the politicians job to ensure public safety and fairness for all under their purview. And here they've failed to discharge their elected duties.

A Democrat mayor and Democrat Governor have FAILED to show equal treatment to all of it's citizens.

Just imagine if a bunch of right-wingers did the same thing. They'd Waco that zone in minutes

The politicians responsible for Seattle have failed the citizens and businesses in that area.

We were assuming his opinions were based on racist, white supremacist ideas but that post is full of evidence that makes it much more than an assumption now.  Be wary of anyone whose posts use individual examples to dispel systemic racism.   Systemic racism never implied that every single black person's success was prevented.  

Take leaded water as one piece of the racist pie.  You can have lead leech into a population's water supply and there is a well known mechanism for how this impairs cognitive development and impulse control and then have a generation of children who grow up with higher rates of criminality.  Thats not saying every single child who drinks the water will become a criminal but its an increased likelihood.  Some individuals are so exceptional that they can overcome and many are unaffected.  

So why don't they just move where the water is clean?

This attitude intentionally ignores the history of segregation in the US.  Most black people have parents or grandparents who were forced to live in certain areas; often the most polluted areas of the city, breathe dirty air, drink dirty water, and go to shitty schools.  You can't just "take responsibility" for something that is enforced throughout society.

Then theres non-violent crimes.  You may say "well then don't commit crimte" but  white kids smoke pot (at a higher rate) or commit petty crimes and its just "mischief" they get off for and go on to lead normal lives.  Poor black kids smoke pot (at a lower rate) and police are sent in to catch them (at a much higher rate) and get them involved in the system.  We have a justice system and prison system that is intentionally retributive and makes very little attempt to rehabilitate.  In fact, blacks consistently get harsher penalties for the same exact crimes.    Our prisons take in people who used drugs, turns them into criminals, then puts them back on the street with even LESS opportunities.  

Also, if you're going to use Obama as an example, you might want to look into his family history and upbringing because theres a certain detail that specifically  allowed his family more opportunity which directly affected him.

I've seen scientific studies indicating darker pigmented mammals have higher levels of testosterone. Higher levels of testosterone decrease intelligence and increase propensity for violence.
Yep.  There it is.  Popojeff is a white supremacist.  He had to preface it with about 3 paragraphs of fluff before backing into it, but it came right out.  Of course, he wrote the post in a way where he can back out of it, because he's a closet white supremacist.  

And look at you, following page 2 of the Democrat playbook..... call them racist if you don't know how to discuss facts.

You've proven you refuse to look at facts, or consider anything other than the lies that are pushed down your throat. JUST CALL THEM RACIST IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO !

Are you saying Obama wasn't black, or wasn't successful ?

Tell me what's more racist:
 1. Reading written words on an Internet forum a discussing the facts behind them.
2. Assuming ones skin color and white supremacy by the words they wrote?

You've never seen me, have no idea what my skin color is, and your racist mind assumes I'm white.

^^^^^^^^^^^

Nooooooooo.......... I haven't implied anything so don't be misrepresenting what I have said.I have stated facts that are true and correct and not selective factes or half truths to collaborate with ANY narrative.I am neither Left or Right.I am in favour of reason and rational thought only and for someone to implicate presented facts as a white supremacist form of argument indicates a bias or wilful ingnorance or worse still blatant left wing extremist form of response. I am provoking rational thought which any sane person would be able to interpret as a logical argument.

Ok, be explicit then.  Do you think white people are superior to black people when it comes to being a productive member of society?

If not, then what is your explanation for the facts. (white vs black crime, income, education, health, etc)

Ah stop being so ridiculous.Nobody is generalizing any race or claiming superiority.Your retorts are like that of any other Left Wing Extremist who slanders anyone who has a differing opinion to this media frenzy,as a white supremacist.You obviously have a personal bias towards the "movement" whereas I don't......
Be gone with your fucking nonsense :-)

Twitch has received his new talking points, and he gonna talk them.

Actually using brain cells is NOT part of the requirement for Internet Democratic Operatives, and in fact is a negative.
seems like fine question by twitch.  i dont get all the personal attacks on him hes being reasonable and just sharing his thoughts and asking about yours isnt that why we come to a forum like this?
I agree with pretty much everyone who's attacked me that we have to look at the facts.  And I'm not questioning the facts they've presented.

An American Black person is more likely to commit a crime, live in poverty, be less healthy and less educated than an American White person.

The question I'm asking is why?

I've shared my opinion already, but I'm open minded and able to have my mind changed....what do you guys think?

The WHY behind the matter can never be pinned down exactly. We'd love to find the one explanation and blame it on that, but there is no ONE explanation.

We'd love to say 'systemic racism' or 'institutional racism' in the US.... but those are made up theories that are easily disproven when you look outside the US to find very similar racial disparities in other countries and continents.

We'd love to say 'redlining' practices of some cities kept the blacks in poverty areas, but you'll find research that shows there were more white people in those areas.

The so called 'experts' in race shaming whites for the plight of the blacks are actually the biggest racists of them all, including the Democratic Party. Just think how racist it is to think so poorly of black people that you feel the need to speak for their kind and explain why they can't get ahead without your help.


I cant say I have the one answer to your question, and I doubt there is one answer.  There are so many exceptions to the rule, that it's really not a rule anymore.
   There are successful people of EVERY race and gender in every level of the economy and government. We're Sooooooo racist in the US that we had a black President. And we see failures from every race too.

And to keep 'on topic' to avoid biased moderation.... Riots are counterproductive, only reinforcing stereotypes.


But if you think it's all about race, and has nothing to do with one political party manipulating as much as they can to keep themselves in power, you'd be a fool.

A Democratic President's words... not mine.

What is the truth then?  How do you explain those statistics?

I'm not questioning the numbers here, I'm curious why you think they are what they are.

Is racism the explanation for a black person killing another black person? Did white people make a black person kill another black person?
Is racism the explanation for 'thug life' and the perpetuation of criminal activity?
Is racism the explanation for Chicago's unreal homicide rate?
