People for the most part over time learn from their mistakes and adjust accordingly if they are lucid and paying attention. But there are exceptions to that statement.

Of course skin colour does not cause violence, but there's certainly some cultures which have a higher tendency to unlawful activities. For example the overall murder rate among Finns has been hovering around 1.6-2.0 per 100k people, while among Finnish Roma the figure is an incredible 16.0-18.0, mainly because of the blood feud "culture" they express.

Well yes there are better and worse cultures. Are English and Taliban cultures really as valuable, good and respectable? Or some mud hut culture in Africa, or some ghetto gangbanging culture in LA? Uhm....... let me think: no. The English culture is superior in every imaginable way.

That's the truth, like it or not. Honour killings, eh?

''Mud hut culture'' ''Taliban culture'' WTF

Mud huts - generic name for traditional houses in rural Africa

Taliban - a terrorist group

Gangbanging culture - a SUB culture.

I'm pretty sure you know what I mean by CULTURE.

Whatever Ariete I suppose Finnish culture has no negatives and Romani culture has no positives.

Liverpool is far from a violent city. It has a lower level of crime than London, Bristol, Leeds and Manchester. Glasgow and Belfast are, however, violent, relatively speaking.

Completely agree with you, crime is in no way linked to ethnicity or race, but to upbringing, social and ecomical situation and community and governing work.

And then you say this?!

In Italy I'm guessing Moroccans are largely at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder and face social issues -- which leads to crime.
