It doesn't matter to me if you're black, white, yellow, or red; if the collective actions of a community are such that I feel that my family is threatened, then I will move.

You can debunk stats all you want, but there are plenty of studies to prove that the black population has a higher crime rate. In the case that I fled to the suburbs, the crime rate was high and the city was majority black. Only a liberal like yourself would try to turn it around into a case of not "understand{ing} how to actually read statistics." Pure idiocy, but par for the course for liberal flunkies.

i'll ask you too than to show me the peer reviewed research without poverty or socio-economics as an undrlying factor.

I await it.

Are all of those surveillance cameras in convenience stores profiling AAs also when they are robbing it?

Houston one of my friends is a cop and black, they profile all of the time.
You don't even want to hear what they call young black men.
It starts with a N

Then you need to report him/her.

But that is not an answer to my question?

You are incorrect. That is the typical liberal nonsense designed to obscure what is really going on. There is more crime in poor black neighborhoods than there is in poor white neighborhoods.

It's true that more crime is commited in poor neighborhoods than middle or upper class neighborhoods and this includes poor white neighborhoods. But why is there so much more crime in poor black neighborhoods? Obviously something else is going on.

thats like saying white's need to acknowledge white pedophiles and serial killers
We do.

There is pedophile living in my area. If that Moderator cut: language sets a toe on my property, he's toast.

David Berkowitz and Jeffrey Dahmer were both white serial killers. There, I said it.

Can you provide the statistics your quoting? You are making a statement as if its documented FACT, please provide the data your using.

Come on guy. I'm 10 steps ahead of you. Do you seriously think that anyone, including myself, would look at crime statistics and NOT factor in poverty or socio-economics? Of course they are a factor. That much is a given. Is your modus operandi to constantly state the obvious? If so, you're definitely doing a good job.

Poverty and socio-economics of the city I lived in were certainly a factor to the increased crime rates. Which is precisely why I moved out into the suburbs. White folks. Less Crime. Statistically conducive to the lifestyle I sought. Pretty simple concept really.

You made me laugh out loud. Read the whole post. Blacks are under-represented in stops, my friend. If they are commiting 80% of the shootings according to victims and witnesses then they might should be stopped 80% of the time and not at the rate of their numbers in the population.
