Are you arguing that simply changing the ethnicity of rural suburban communities that the crime rate will be different?

Are you aware that population density is highly correlated with crime rates?

Urban and rural. It's possible to cherry pick and find areas that buck the trend of high black crime but there are very few.
A rural mid western community with a 99% white population usually has a violent crime rate of 5 or so. By flipping the race, violent crime will rocket to several hundred. There is not a single black population anywhere that approaches the mid west example. It's just not there.
How to fix it? Ask your black leaders then don't do what they ask.
That would be a great start.
Just to prove you incorrect, Country Club Hills IL, which is mid west and is 82% black, has a violent crime rate of under 3%

That is utterly and profoundly ridiculous. Why don't you produce a link to the nonsense that you spew?

I have seen it happen with somone that has walked just a block from our house to the gas station and when walking out of the gas station, was stopped and questioned for being white in the neighborhood. When the cops do this to white people in my neigborhood, they are racial profiling. Just the same as the cop did to my wifes sister for being black and driving an expensive car.
You keep citing other reasons for the stops in addition to the person's race therefore race was not the sole reason for the stops. Your reasoning appears to be flawed.

If you really want to convince me you should use an example where the only reason was, indeed, the race of the individual. I imagine that it does happen but I think it's pretty rare. The police just don't have that kind of time.

Believe me the cops were not interested in simply harrassing that white guy in your neighborhood. I'm sure that in their experience there is a high probability that a white guy in your neighborhood is there to buy drugs. He was not stopped just because he was white. He was stopped because he was white AND he was in your neighborhood. There is a difference.

But if he was black in the neighborhood he wouldn't of been stopped so, the deciding factor to stop him was because the color of the skin. You can try to spin it anyway you want, but, no matter what the circumstances are, the deciding factor can be the color of ones skin. And of course the cops in my neighborhood have plenty of time to harrass people, they need something to do when in between trying to dodge responding to calls or actually serving and protecting.

And if you notice they want to argue the fact that it wasnt that the white person was stopped according to their race, but none of them disputing it, have said anything about the black person with the mercedes. I guess, deep down, they have to admit to themselves that black people do get stopped based solely off the color of their skin.
